Yallingup's name is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning "place of love". The town came into being in 1899 through the discovery of Ngili Caves by Edward Dawson. He led visitors through the caves until 1937.
The area enjoys a moderate-Mediterranean climate with warm summers and cool, wet winters. Ocean swells attract keen surfers and its wineries, breweries and restaurants appeal to everyone.
The village has an aura of coastal serenity and Yallingup Luxury Retreat fits right in with that.
It offers three levels of accommodation. Three Balinese-style luxury villas have two pavilions joined by a wooden walkway. Master bedrooms have marble spa ensuite and private deck. The Deluxe Garden Pavilion offers a dining/living area, equipped kitchen, king bed and marble spa ensuite. The smaller Studio Garden Pavilion has marble spa ensuite and tea and coffee making facilities.
All villas are tucked behind limestone walls and landscaped Australian native gardens for added beauty and seclusion.
Tranquil water features and local artworks are used extensively and massage and beauty therapists are on hand to restore body, mind and soul.
Guests enjoy specially prepared meals in front of an open fire or on a private deck. Ingredients are sourced from local growers and excellent wines of the region are recommended accompaniments.
Around four hours south of Perth
Yallingup Luxury Retreat accommodation in the Studio Garden Pavilion is $280 a night in off-peak periods and $295 a night at other times. Deluxe Garden Pavilion is $325 a night and the Luxury Villa is $470 a night. Champagne breakfast is included.
