With its allegedly laid-back culture and epic landscapes, Australia makes a brilliant vacation destination. Deciding to pay the price of luxury and book a five-star resort can only add a plus of distinction and glamor to an otherwise enchanting experience. As for where are the top luxury resorts in Australia located, that’s an easy answer: everywhere! The great advantage of deciding to book a luxury holiday in Australia is that you can experience almost every type of environment you can think of, from the sophistication of a modern metropolis to a secluded island or even a cattle farm. So here are a few handpicked Australian luxury resorts to take a closer look at:

Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa

Australia’s Blue Mountains create the perfect setting for this classy spa resort, offering 40 private suites and  all-inclusive packages. The suites are equipped with all modern utilities, including Wi-Fi and an Ipod, and their huge windows allow you to stare for hours at the surrounding scenery, squinting for wildlife. Each suite has its own pool, while the dining room, bar, main pool, and spa and sports facilities are located in the main lodge.

Gaia Retreat and Spa

In case the name of Australia’s astonishing Byron Bay doesn’t ring a bell, then the name Olivia Newton-John certainly does. The famous actress turned resort owner seems to have invested in this premiere resort with one single thought in her mind: have you pampered. Thus, expect a wonderful location and an exquisite decorum; plus the Gaia resort offers spa therapy, yoga classes, walks, and everything that can take your mind off things and get you closer to Nirvana.

Empire Retreat and Spa

The surroundings of Perth can be quite beautiful, and the Empire Retreat and Spa upon Margaret River will prove me right. The resort combines the authentic charm of a wine-land  farmhouse with the minimalism of Asian architecture. This is a cozy and affordable family resort, operating on a self-catering basis, but with a free gourmet breakfast served to your room.

Saphire

Tasmania’s vast wilderness areas offer both the promise of adventure and the intimacy that any luxury seeker longs for. At Saphire, an ultra-modern boutique resort on the sores of Freycinet Peninsula, you’ll be able to combine your guilty pleasures (as gourmet food and sunset hot tub sessions) with your call for the great outdoors. The region happens to offer some of the best hiking trails in Tasmania, and with the hotel’s world class spa, you’ll never suffer from sore feet.
