which accommodation for romantic getaway?

i'm planning a surprise weekend away for our anniversary in august and am really unsure about which accommodation to go for.... i've read all the reviews but they all seem to be good... so does anyone have any opinions or suggestions?

think i have narrowed it down to Yallingup luxury retreat [is it worth the extra?], merribrook retreat, gilgara retreat....

thank u :)

I do really like Llewellin's but their spa room is already booked and i wanted one with a spa or at least a bath...

any more thoughts on the other 3 in my question? is it worth paying the extra for yallingup luxury retreat or merribrook?

Dozens of options. Depends on what you want for location and if you want to be secluded or at a retreat with all the extras. Luxury accom. can extend to over $1000 per night. Location can be absolute beachfront, secluded in forest etc.

My preference is for seclusion but thats just me (us)

If all reviews are good for your short list you probably cant go wrong with whichever choice you make. I doubt anyone will answer that has stayed at ALL 3 and can give a informed comparison.

I also doubt that someone would have stayed at all three...more hoping to hear from someone who had stayed at any of them for further opinions...

Thanks for the other suggestions too...

Hi jordiness... I've stayed at Bunker Bay Resort / Caves Hotel at Yallingup/ & Smiths Resort.

IMO: I love Yallingup - its the best part of the Margaret River Region. So .. I would be looking into a hotel that suits your budget.

Just to add to the confusion, I highly recommend Windance Estate in Yallingup.
