Mount Lofty House, South Australia

Among the greenery and mist of Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills sits Mount Lofty House. The 33-room property features beautifully manicured gardens and two vineyards, but the real unwinding should begin with a visit to the Stables Day Spa on site. Set within the original stable built in 1852, the spa has been thoughtfully restored and sees equal use by hotel guests and visitors. Within its cooling sandstone walls, the treatments, offered in three rooms, use Australian-made Waterlily products. The Signature Spa Ritual - a two-hour escape combining a botanical spa facial, hair treatment, cane sugar exfoliation and full body massage with cold-pressed oil - provides the ultimate relaxation before you return to the city. Or stay a while, return to the manor, and wake up in the Hills.

Mount Lofty House, 74 Mt Lofty Summit Rd, Crafers, SA, (08) 8339 6777
