On arrival to this exceptional facility set in 50 acres of eucalypt forest which is less than an hour drive from the Gold Coast beaches, we were given the tour of this magnificent escape.

Set in fabulous serenity, Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa offers five-star service, fine dining and first class leisure facilities.  Encompassing eight beautifully appointed villas and one exclusive executive suite, with all embracing the natural environment of rain forest natural timber and warm interiors, each have exceptional views towards the coast.

Ruffles Day Spa is located onsite and offers a full range of soul soothing spa treatments including botanical and organic facials, deluxe pedicures and manicures, revitalizing body scrubs, detoxifying body wraps and a full range of therapeutic and relaxation massages.

After being pampered by the fabulous therapists at the Day Spa, we enjoyed a fine dining experience with fantastic food and wine. 

I had a very relaxing and tranquil experience.  All that can be done is relax and enjoy your surroundings and after competing in this year’s Gold Coast Half Marathon, it was just the ticket.
