Romantic Getaways in South Australia

When craving some alone time with your special someone, these are your go-to romantic getaways in South Australia

Mayfair Hotel - Adelaide

World-class wine regions to a dramatic coastline to Australia’s outback, South Australia’s stunning landscape sets the scene for a romantic getaway. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a honeymoon or you’re simply in need of some couple only time; there are plenty of stays that you and your special someone can escape to. Here is our edit of the ten most romantic getaways in South Australia. 

Ode to The Orchard - Elisa Herdman

Ode to the Orchard, Adelaide Hills
This rustically chic cottage hails back to the 1890s (one of the first in the region), beautifully restored and achingly romantic. Surrounded by the Adelaide Hills wine region and overlooking an old apple orchard, the two-bedroom cottage is like stepping back in time. Sip wine in front of a cosy wood fire and cook hearty meals on a vintage wood-fired Aga (stove). But nothing quite beats the outdoor clawfoot bath that overlooks the hills. This unique country experience has become the jewel of romantic getaways in South Australia.

Adelaide Hills

Camel House

Camel Beach House, Eyre Peninsula
Set aside more than just a weekend for this getaway. It may be seven-hours from Adelaide, but the drive is well worth it. Located on 250-acres of oceanfront heritage property, Camel Beach House is an eco-off-grid experience with nothing but absolute privacy. Completely self-contained with a wood fire, this beautifully designed house was made to weather the wild Southern Ocean. From the comfort of your bed or the expansive deck, watch migrating whales, pods of dolphins and stunning sunsets. Bliss.

Mayfair Hotel - Adelaide
The Louise, Barossa Valley

One of South Australia’s most romantic getaways, The Louise is a Barossa Valley winery that fuses quality food, good wine and beautiful accommodation. You will be sure to earn a few extra brownie points when booking a stay here, especially with their secluded suites, picturesque surrounds, fine-dining restaurant Appellation, and cellar door. The best way to experience The Louise is by taking a stroll to the vineyards before retiring to your suite of pure luxe.

Playford Hotel Adelaide

Pavilions at Lenswood, Adelaide Hills
An easy 30-minute drive from downtown Adelaide, Pavilions at Lenswood, is Adelaide Hills’ response to a stylishly luxe romantic getaway. The two, one-bedroom self-contained pavilions are designed as the ultimate couple’s retreat. Each comes with an open woodfire, kitchen, freestanding bathtub and king-size bed, all of which overlooks the gardens and valley. The Swiss chalet-style pavilion (Ruhe) has a Japanese cedar hot tub. The other pavilion (Merak), is styled after a modern Italian Alps warehouse and has a four-person spa and deck overlooking the dam. Either way, you’re in for a treat.

Arkaba Lodge - Flinders Ranges

Arkaba, Flinders Ranges
The dramatic landscape of the Flinders Ranges sets the scene for a romantic getaway in South Australia that neither of you will soon forget. Just over five-hours from Adelaide, Arkaba Homestead is not only a wildlife sanctuary but an impressive place to stay. There are five private guestrooms on the property, four of which are in the 1850’s homestead, and each come with their own unique, bush-luxe appeal. Hosted dinners made with local produce and a cosy fire to warm by. Spot galahs, kangaroos and emus from the veranda and take in the breathtaking landscape.

Wilpena Road, Flinders Ranges

Cambourne - Seppeltsfield

Cambourne, Seppeltsfield
For a truly exclusive experience in the Barossa Valley, a stay at Cambourne Boutique Accommodation is a must for any romantic getaway in South Australia. Set upon 25 acres of premium Shiraz vineyard, the property dates to the 1840s, with the original cottage serving as the accommodation. Although this rustic-chic property comfortably sleeps six people across the cottage’s three spacious suites, it is equally set up for an intimate stay for two. Boasting beautiful views of the vines, enjoy the day exploring the Barossa and then come back to Cambourne for sunset drinks on the veranda.

799 Seppeltsfield Road, Seppeltsfield

Hotel California Road
Hotel California Road at Inkwell Wines, McLaren Vale

One of the more unique stays in the McLaren Vale wine region, this luxury micro-hotel is an adults-only escape amongst the vines. Although it’s made from 20 recycled shipping containers on a working vineyard and winery, this off-grid accommodation doesn’t skimp on the romance factor. Three luxury private king suites, each boasting a private deck, soaking tub with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the vines, floating king bed and all the mod cons you could dream of. If you’re feeling social, the cellar door’s literally steps away, and the common outdoor deck and courtyard is the perfect spot for sundowners.

A winning combo for any romantic getaway in South Australia.
