Perth is your archetypal bustling city, but tiptoe beyond the boundaries of the Central Business District and you’ll find a refreshing change of pace. Right on the city’s doorstep are charming chalets and boutique rooms set in the natural playground of the Perth Hills. Picture easing into a bubble-filled spa bath or greeting romance-filled days with breakfast in bed.
Venture a little farther and you’ll stumble across the coastal gems of Mandurah and Bunbury before hitting the staggering scenery of Margaret River – and with it, luxury eco cottages and pristine lodges set in rolling vineyards. That means sipping complimentary port wines on starlit patios, jumping into heated swimming pools and savouring gourmet bites at award-winning hotel restaurants. You could be spending Sunday with an in-room couples massage or a private, candlelit dinner prepared by your personal chef. To help you choose, we’ve put together some of our favourite accommodation options from the wider Perth region to tempt you and your loved one away from the city and into a romance novella.
