The Scenic Rim area has long been a favourite destination in SEQ for my husband and I, so for his 40th birthday I planned a surprise weekend getaway to Bunyip Scenic Rim Resort. From the minute we arrived and were greeted by Riley (resort’s English Red Setter) and Marina we knew we had discovered a truly special place. The views of the surrounding mountains are breath taking, and become even more beautiful at sunrise and sunset. On Rob’s return we were lucky enough to be shown a rainbow which ended on the property, proof indeed of the mythical pot of gold.
The Great Room (grand dining hall) and luxury apartments are designed to make the most of the mountain views. They are built from natural materials, perfectly suited to the environment, and the furnishings are modern and stylish without losing comfort. We especially enjoyed the fluffy towels, cloudlike bed, plush leather couches, complimentary robes, chocolates on arrival, and Nespresso coffee maker. Floor to ceiling glass windows allow you to view the scenery regardless of where you are in the apartment, and motorised blinds (great for the guys) can be deployed for privacy and/or light control. The only sounds are the sounds of nature...crickets and plentiful bird life.
Rob and Marina are fantastic hosts. They work well together as a team and it’s obvious they love what they do. Breakfast was included in our weekend package and we opted for a 3 course dinner both nights. Breakfast includes a continental selection followed by a cooked selection where you can request anything you desire, even an American style cooked breakfast of pancakes, bacon and maple syrup was not out of the question. The evening meals were outstanding and catered to suit our tastes, and the ambience of the Great Room encouraged conversation between newly introduced guests.
Bunyip Scenic Rim Resort was a perfect place for a quiet and relaxing weekend. To celebrate my husband’s birthday we both received an in-house massage expertly given by Marina. At this point we were left wondering, does life get any better? Then we were surprised once again by a unique and much appreciated touch, an unexpected birthday muffin presented during the evening meal. We reluctantly left on Sunday afternoon vowing to return again, although during our next stay we will try gliding as well as having another massage. I expect that this new resort will win many awards in the near future.
