My husband and I were lucky (or canny) enough to win a hotly-contested 2-night stay at Amore on Buderim at a recent charity auction for the AGL Helicopter Rescue Service.
We were excited in the lead-up to our weekend away but did not know what to expect and also were a little hesitant as we live 10 minutes away!
From the moment we drove into the lush rainforest property, I felt my concerns ebb away.
Kind host Michael provided us with the keys to our cabin and a generous breakfast hamper designed to amply last us our 2 breakfasts.
There are a selection of private, free-standing cabins and we stayed in an Interlude Deluxe.
They are all nestled in a rainforest and are designed for privacy and peace and quiet.
Our cabin was pristine, luxurious and modern in design.
There is a large main room with king bed, double spa, wood-burning slow-combustion fireplace, kitchenette, leather sofa and TV. There is air-con and fans so all weather is covered.
A balcony comes off this main room and there is a separate toilet/shower.
The hosts really have thought of everything, from the champagne and chocolates, bath bombs, slippers and robes to the delicious biscuits, tea and coffee, fabulous breakfast basket and well-stocked local tourist compendium.
They are self-contained to the degree that you would want a romantic weekend away to be self-contained (fridge/sink/microwave/crockery).
Both nights we were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the rainforest and woke feeling refreshed.
The best part was being left alone! The hosts were so thorough in kitting out the cabins that we did not need to bother them and them us. The only people we saw were on check-in and check-out.
On our first night we dined out but on the second day, after luxuriating in our nice surrounds, we were happy to order a pizza and DVD and stay in.
We left feeling relaxed and happy and plan to go back whenever we need a solid break.
Thank you Amore for your generous donation to a charitable cause and for a wonderful stay. We look forward to returning soon.
