A luxury boutique accommodation, nestled in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, close to the numerous tourist attractions. Featuring newly refurbished suites where the charm of the Tudor style ...More is intertwined with a modern flair for ultimate comfort and an unforgettable experience. Our guests will be enchanted by the individually designed interiors adorned with rich fabrics, hand-painted wall murals and gilt mirrors. Enjoy the ambiance of an open fireplace while soaking in a spa bath, have a glass of wine on a balcony admiring the views of the rainforest, take a stroll through the established flowering garden or relax with a book in the glass covered conservatory. There are walking tracks and picnic areas at the doorstep and it is only a short drive to the iconic tourist attractions, parks, restaurants, galleries and local villages. Whether you are looking for a romantic escape, a peaceful retreat or a base for exploring the area, Aquila Nova has plenty to offer. Less
