The Adelaide Hills is home to a brand-new weekend getaway, and it may be just the escape you need.
Opened in March of this year, Pavilions at Lenswood have brought international luxury accommodation to our SA doorstep, just 30 minutes from the Adelaide city.
On offer is Ruhe; the Swiss Chalet style pavilion, and Merak; resembling a modern Italian Alps villa.
Choosing between the two is a decision not lightly made. Add in the complication of deciding between a Japanese cedar hot tub, or a four-person spa and outdoor deck, and the choice becomes almost impossible.
Regardless of where you stay, you can expect a boutique, first-class experience.
Both pavilions are designed to be comfortable, relaxing and stylish. They each include an open wood fire, kitchen, modern bathroom with freestanding bath, and of course, a king bed.
Views from each villa are fabulously South Australian, overlooking lush, landscaped gardens and tree-lined valleys.
The tranquillity is sweet. The privacy? Surreal.
A perfect base for an Adelaide Hills adventure, there are over 50 wineries, cellar doors, breweries and distilleries nearby, including the ever-delightful Bird in Hand, Golding Wines, Lot 100 and Prancing Pony.
The region is equally famous for its gourmet produce, which can be found at nearby Beerenberg Farm, or Woodside Cheese.
Pavilions at Lenswood have partnered with a number of these venues and attractions, offering unique experiences available only to Pavilion guests.
And, if it’s just too hard to leave the comfort of your self-contained pavilion, you’re in luck. Your personal mini bar is stocked with Adelaide Hills produce, as is the continental breakfast.
Pair this with some of the other indulgences on offer, including in-house catering, massages, picnic hampers, chauffeurs and a personalised dinner under the stars, and you’ll wonder why you haven’t moved in.
If you’re looking for a sign to treat yourself, this might be it.
Do yourself a favour and book directly. You’ll be thanked with a complimentary welcome pack, overflowing with local goodies.
Pavilions at Lenswood is located at the corner of Swamp and Leslie Roads in Lenswood, SA.
