Mt Rael Retreat
High on a hill near Healesville, this luxury gourmet escape has unsurpassed views of the entire Yarra Valley. There are six suites featuring contemporary designs, all individually furnished and varying in price according to size and fixtures. Four suites along the balcony have panoramic views, while two in garden settings enjoy treetop scenes. The indulgent Sharman corner suite boasts a luxurious spa and king-size bed with possibly the best views of the valley, and comes with sparkling wine and chocolates. Breakfast is served in the in-house restaurant, 3777, and is worth lingering over. The retreat has a friendly relaxed atmosphere and is well placed for exploring the region’s wineries.
