Empire Retreat – A getaway hard to come back from

Do you ever feel as though there aren’t enough hours in a day? Do you ever stop and think life is speeding by too fast and you don’t have the chance to just stop take it all in? No time to contemplate where you’re headed and which direction you wish to go in?

Empire Retreat is an escape designed to provide a break free from the complexities of a busy, modern life. Located between Dunsborough and Yallingup, the retreat is nestled within 265 acres of tranquil pastures and natural bush land in the middle of the Margaret River Wine region in Western Australia.  Established in 1997 the property features 12 acres dedicated to the Empire Estate vineyard, which has been producing full-flavoured award-winning wine since 1997.

Empire retreat has 10 luxury suites designed for complete privacy made of natural stone and timbers in 4 different room styles. Finest linens and furnishings complement the luxurious design. Suites include an open fireplace, private timber deck, deluxe spa baths and some with their own day beds.

Each suite at the Empire Retreat is designed to immerse you in nature, so each room has a unique way of bringing the outside in, with either a private deck or enclosed private garden all to yourself.

Apart from the impressive luxury accommodation The Empire Retreat has a 35-year-old stone and timber farmhouse, which serves as a wonderful entertainment area housing an open fireplace and magnificent lounges, and is home to a spectacular outdoors shower, Jacuzzi and sauna. From here you can take in spectacular views of the vineyard, native wildlife and natural flora and fauna.

Now what retreat would be complete without a spa? The Empire Retreat is host to the exquisite Empire Spa. Made up of bathing suites with large stone baths, a steam room and rainforest shower suites. The Empire Retreat also has spa rooms dedicated to two people, perfect for a couples getaway.

Many of the retreat packages, depending on which suite you opt for, include spa treatments such as massages, facials, body therapies, hand, foot and hair treatments as well as the Empire Retreat exclusive ‘Empire Rituals’, which are special packages comprised of signature Empire Spa specialties including massages, exfoliations, facials, baths and treatments.

All these options, a perfect setting plus a fully cooked breakfast each morning and two bottles of wine from the Empires Estate on arrival. I’m not sure if this has got you keen for a little rest and rejuvenation but I know where I’m heading…
