The coast of Western Australia is a favourite place of surfers, lovers of good wine and food and those just wanting some R&R.
For all that and more, Natalie Gruzlewski was lucky enough to spend some time at Injidup Spa Retreat in the heart of the Margaret River wine region. It is tranquil, has superb views of the Indian Ocean and surrounded by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
The retreat has 10 luxury self-contained villas, each with a plunge pool. Villas are private and linked by timber walkways. They have an eclectic mix of furnishings and objet d'art with a French influence. Melaleuca trees and native wildflowers provide shade and colour and there are views from almost every point.
The pace is unhurried, the beach uncrowded and the surrounding Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park has Cape to Cape walking trails.
It's not just a hotel Injidup was designed as a place for treatments focusing on health and wellbeing. Consultants will tailor treatments to your personal needs.
Bathers Café goes all day serving hearty breakfasts to get you off to a good start. It's popular for lunch and dinner with modern Australian cuisine. Private chefs are available on request. Bouzy the Champagne Bar has comfortable leather lounges, fantastic music and a range of cocktails to delight every palate.
You can spend a delightful few hours at nearby Smiths Beach Resort enjoying premium wine and food.
