Just an hour's drive north of Adelaide is one of the world's top culinary destinations - the Barossa Valley, bursting with internationally renowned wineries and restaurants and boasting stunning vineyard-studded landscapes in every direction. Surrounded by lavender and vines, the Louise is the accommodation to match; Travel + Leisure named it in the top 100 hotels in the world for 2017, one of only two Australian properties to make the list. Step inside your private suite and it's not hard to see why: the 15 rooms at this elegant stone lodge feature king beds with luxury linens, walk-in robes, marbled ensuite bathrooms with two-person spa baths, gas log fireplaces and private terraces with their own outdoor rain showers, while the top tier suites even have their own private water feature and sun lounges.
Time Out tip: Definitely book a table at the Louise's award winning Appellation restaurant, but don't just settle for the regular wine list. For the ultimate culinary experience, staff can arrange a private wine blending session with a local winemaker, and have the chef prepare a dinner to match your new creation.
