Australia has many luxurious honeymoon destinations that are world class, but how often does one come up that allows you to experience the tranquillity of the Mighty Murray River? Right here in the beautiful Riverland, The Frames Luxury Accommodation does just that.
In our experience, people want the following when it comes to the perfect honeymoon destination:
- An atmosphere that allows romance to blossom
- Dining that delights your gastronomic senses
- A little bit of luxury to stretch out and relax
- Privacy for together time
- Tranquillity for some peace and quiet
- Some local sites to explore
Having been in tourism for as long as we have, these six elements are essentials for most people looking for the ideal honeymoon destination in Australia. The next decision comes down to the location – where to go to have all this?
A honeymoon destination surrounded by Australian native flora and fauna
The Frames retreats are set high up on a cliff top overlooking the Murray River with no expense spared. The moment you enter the retreat, you can remove your shoes and hide away for the entire experience, or you can add some local romantic adventure, more about this below.
An atmosphere that allows romance to blossom
Each retreat has nothing spared when it comes to a totally luxurious experience that will delight all your senses and create the relaxation needed for romance to thrive.
And you are surrounded by the sounds and smells of the Murray River, abundant in birdlife and native Australiana – koalas, emus and kangaroos.
Dining that resonates to your epicurean receptors
We are known for exquisite dishes prepared by local five-star gourmet chefs using the best local produce from our very own Riverland, the food bowl region of South Australia. For a completely secluded and private honeymoon experience, we bring gourmet three course meals right to your door, all you need to do is heat them up.
Or, you can have a private chef prepare and serve meals for you inside your retreat. Either way, the food is sensational if we may say so ourselves (as do our visitors!).
Luxury to stretch out and relax
Whether you are inside or outdoors, you have everything you need around you for a beautifully indulgent experience - from sunken spas and infra-red saunas to private outdoor areas with hydrotherapy spas and heated pools.
You can stretch out and relax on leather lounges, sun recliners, and a king size electric titling bed so that you can prop yourself up for your morning coffee as you talk about the day ahead of you.
Privacy and tranquility for together time
The Frames Retreats are built for total privacy, curving their way out like rainbow serpents toward the edge of the cliff so that they overlook the Murray. The balcony has sun lounges where you can relax and gaze down the length of the river, taking in tranquil mornings or spectacular sunsets.
The private outdoor area has state of the art BBQ facilities. We can bring pre-prepared BBQ provisions that are ready to cook, and you can enjoy the best of what the Australian outdoors is all about – the tranquil river sounds, birdlife and the smell of pure Australian nature.
Some local sight-seeing
If you want to venture out and explore the local area, there are some ideal activities for couples seeking the ideal honeymoon destination.
The Gondola Ride at Sunset - take a romantic river cruise at sunset in our restored 100-year-old classic wooden boat. With champagne and a platter of divine food to enjoy together, you’ll want to tell your friends about this perfectly romantic honeymoon destination right here in South Australia.
For just a little more adventure, the Wetland and Wildlife Cruise will take you into parts of the Murray River that are often unseen unless you’re a local. You will enjoy this exclusive tour in our very comfy dinghy, stopping for a gourmet lunch on the banks of the river.
The Flavour Safari is another of our signature tours ideally for foodies, introducing you to the epicurean delights of the Riverland. Our air-conditioned vehicle will take you to local growers, brewers and winemakers and includes lunch at the 23rd Distillery.
