The chalet was absolutely immaculate when you walk in, and then you look through all the cupboards and realise they have thought of everything - the complimentary nibbles and bubbles were a great touch to the stay. We really enjoyed how quiet and peaceful it was, it truly was an amazing experience.

Absolute bliss! My partner and I have been back many times and have loved every visit. From the serene setting, to the peace and quiet of your own private chalet, Forest Rise is the perfect escape in Margaret River. We plan to return again and again.

Such a peaceful and romantic getaway. Stayed in the Western Rosella and barely saw anyone the entire time we were there! It was interesting not having a check-in, just followed the emailed instructions, key was in the door and walked in! All the little touches are what make this place stand out above similar retreats. Quiet and peaceful, spa with...

As soon as we arrived at the forest rise we instantly felt relaxed. The surroundings at this retreat are just stunning and we felt as though we were the only ones there despite it being a long weekend. I'm sure all of the chalets were full. We stayed in the lodge and it was massive and beautifully designed. We left...

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.
