Unless you’re a wine connoisseur familiar with Chardonnay varietals, the Margaret River region of southwestern Australia may be something of a mystery to you. Here’s a quick update: slightly inland from the Indian Ocean, the vineyard-surrounded town is located about three hours’ drive from Perth. The recently renovated Cape Lodge is one of a few grand estates in the area. Boasting an award-winning restaurant, its own lake and vineyard, as well as easy proximity to beaches, a cave-filled national park, and, of course, all the viticultural attractions a wine lover could desire, the Lodge is a peaceful retreat far from, well, pretty much everything.
The ten newly constructed “super luxury” suites are roomy, sparely furnished spaces, some featuring jacuzzi baths. Despite the finer amenities (wireless internet, high-quality linens, CD players) of the suites, some find the lodge’s original rooms are cozier and warmer. And then on the other hand there’s the ultra-plush Vineyard Residence, a three-acre property fit for a family — that is, if your family likes gazebos and marble bathrooms, high vaulted ceilings and elegant hardwood, not to mention a separate guest house and a helicopter handing pad.
It’s probably no surprise that the Cape Lodge’s wine cellar is top-notch — the culinary dimension is central to the Cape experience, centered around a brand-new lakeside restaurant, serving fresh local seafood and the finest Western Australian produce. Touring is an option, with the choice between the hotel’s Bentley and Rolls; or just hide away, and make use of that gazebo.
