We stayed at Forest Rise Eco Retreat after a trip camping across the Nullarbor. It was an amazing experience and to say that we enjoyed the beautiful spa after our journey is an understatement. It was magic. The setting was so peaceful and relaxing. The bikes were also terrific as we cycled to the lake for afternoon drinks. Leaving the...

Forest Rise Eco Retreat was an excellent choice for a few days rest and relaxation. We did not see another person except when we went to the gazebo at the lake. Loved listening to the sounds of the bush. It was a great detox from the rat race. The accommodation was warm and very comfortable. There was definitely nothing missing.

Secluded, centrally located and well kept, we have visited this property on numerous occasions and have been pleased with our experience each visit. All the units are distributed throughout the entirety of the property in such a way that you feel like you are the only guests present at any given time. Would highly recommend.

We stayed for 6 nights in March, 2016 on our first ever trip to the region. After this stay, I doubt that we will ever stay anywhere else. The accommodations were top notch and full of helpful things. Like when we showed up there was fresh local bread and a few treats in the fridge waiting for us (including a...

Always out doing themselves. The local product samples were a nice touch on what is an already perfect place. The total privacy and serenity keeps us coming back and the Lodge takes on a different character at different times of the year, 7 visits and we are still hanging out to get back to rekindle and revitalise.

Stayed 3 nights the week before Easter. Fabulous quiet spot to really relax and get away from it all. Completely private and so quiet and peaceful. Rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. Central to Margaret River, Yallingup and Dunsborough, so endless options for day trips. Will definitely be back and stay longer next...

We have just spent two nights at Forest Rise and are already planning a return visit, this place is wonderful. You drive through peaceful woods to your individual luxury chalet set deep within the trees so you can't see any neighbouring chalets. The no check in policy means you don't have to see anyone if you don't want to making...

We stayed at the Sacred Kingfisher and loved it. They have equipped the very private and secluded chalet with everything we needed and even the things we forgot! Arriving in early evening to wonderful forest sounds coming from outside and inside (thanks to the cd of forest creatures playing). Our worries about having to rush out to the grocery market...

Lovely, peaceful quiet location. We loved the fridge full of local products, and nespresso machine. The chalet was clean and a good distance from other chalets. Perfect location for a quiet getaway, close to wineries etc
