“What every couple needs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

Have just spent our 28th Wedding Anniversary at this beautiful part of the world. The Tent was magical, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the spa secluded and romantic. The local produce provided in the breakfast basket delicious and the locality was convenient to town, wineries and attractions, but far enough away to enjoy the sounds of the bush and believe you could be in the wilds of Africa. We will be returning.

Room Tip: Enjoy the experience of the Tent - glamping at its best

Thank you! The tent IS magical and the bed IS like sleeping on a cloud. Beautifully written, we know where to go when we're looking for new marketing material to be written! :) At Alure, we think bed comfort is really important and we don't skimp on their quality. Nothing worse than booking 5 star accommodation and not being able to get a good night's sleep! It took us a long time to find the right bed for the tent and we finally bought a high end Sealy pillow top ensemble.

We're always on the look out for quality local produce for the breakfast baskets. Good news is we'll have some new additions by the time you come back.

Thanks again

Ruth & Marion

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend away for our 10th wedding Anniversary. It was everything we wanted. Privacy, relaxation and beautiful attractions to visit if we felt like it. There were lots of little surprises whilst staying at Alure. Freshly baked bread and a heated spa waiting for us on arrival were just a few! We will definatly be back. Thank you

Many thanks KellyeO for your lovely words. We're really pleased you had such a lovely time on your anniversary. Freshly baked bread is one life's simple pleasures. Add to that - relaxing in your own heated outdoor spa under the Milky Way along with a glass or two of wine and you're set!

Look forward to seeing you next time!

Regards

Away from Life's hectic pace......Peaceful, Serene and Picturesque. Alure at Stanthorpe is a beautiful place and an amazing experience. Marion and Ruth have created magic here! We loved every moment and left feeling restored.

Marion and Ruth, thank you once again. You gave us back a little bit of ourselves.... A&D

Thank you A & D for noticing the magic here at Alure! Any additions or alterations to the villas are done whilst protecting the peacefulness that is so palpable here. We thank you for your beautiful card and think of you often. We wish you both all the best with the events in your life at the moment. It's quite possible you left a bit of your magic here too!

We have made Allure our Stanthorpe home. We sink into that red couch and king bed then find it very difficult to leave. The villa is well resourced to allow easy preparation of delicious snacks or full meals. Then again Marion always tempts with scrummy platters and bottles of local wine. I just love the smell of the l'occitane shower gel. The kangaroos arrive in the late afternoon and the wrens jump around the grasses in the mornings. It is very relaxing to soak in the outdoor spa and watch the clouds or the stars and moon.

We had an absolutely brilliant couple if nights at Allure. Marion and Ruth were so kind and helpful. The villa was gorgeous and so well set up. It was close enough to everything we needed but enough out of town that we felt secluded and alone. We'll definitely be back soon! The best couple of days we have ever had away.

I had proposed to my now fiancee on the day we arrived at Alure so to say we were in good spirits even before we got there was an understatement. Driving down the dirt road on a pitch black night with torrential rain was a bit dicey but when the 'tent' pulled into the path of my headlights we knew we were home. We walked through the door to rose petals, ethanol eco fire and tea candles set amongst the luxurious furnishings of our 'tent' and the first thing my fiancee wanted to do was take photos (much to my mirth :-) ) to show people how beautiful it was. The spa outside is massive and kept to a nice 38C and is totally private, in the open air allowing some star gazing in style. On our first night we took up the offer of a private chef for the night which wasn't cheap but was well worth it with 6 courses of 5 star food (the spatchcock and the duck spring rolls were our favourites). If you want to cook yourself, the kitchen is fully decked out with quality scanpan and the coffee machine is a Delonghi which makes our home coffee machine jealous! The morning hampers for breakfast are great; if you get up early enough take your breakfast out on the front deck and watch the wallabies before they skip off into the brush for the day (and if you're in the mood for a hearty breakfast do the hot breakfast hamper - all local produce, and you can't go past the fresh eggs and sausages!). The attention to detail (L'Occitane products, fully stocked fridge) and the warmth from Marion and Ruth (they even made the trip down to the tent with a bandaid when my fiancee talked about a blister from her new shoes) makes this our new favourite home away from home. Can't wait until our anniversary next year. Side note: Don't be scared off by the price, it's well worth the little extra!

We love special occasions and proposals are the ultimate in specialness! After all the planning it really came together beautifully. The tent looks divine with the scattered rose petals and tealight candles. We truly enjoy looking after our guests and it was wonderful to see you making the most of the crisp morning out on the front deck watching the kangaroos! :)

Bring on your anniversary!

My husband and I are so happy we chose Alure to celebrate our one year anniversary!! When we first walked into the luxury safari tent we were blown away! Not only was it absolutely gorgeous, but it was so clean and well presented! It was all the little touches that really made our stay, such as the freshly prepared breakfast hamper & the jacuzzi under the stars. The location was so peaceful and beautiful. To top it all off, the hosts are so kind and so helpful. I cannot say enough good things about Alure. We will definately be going back!!
