    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed by our friendly staff before heading off to your suite where you can enjoy a plate of petit fours. The River Suite features a king-sized bed, antique furnishings for an opulent setting, a private marble bathroom and with a traditional claw foot bath, stunning views of the grounds to the distant hills and of course, all of the modern conveniences you’d come to expect such as a TV, DVD and broadband are included to aid relaxation.

    The textures, colours and lighting within your suite are subdued and sumptuous, setting a mood of refinement and pure indulgence. A daily newspaper and turn down service are the cherry on top.

    In the evening, enjoy a 3 course, a la carte dinner for two (beverages are not included) in Eleonore's; an elegant restaurant filled with period décor and an award winning, modern European menu.

    The following morning, you’ll wake before dawn in eager anticipation of your hot air balloon flight. Our staff will call you 30 minutes before you are to be picked up from Hotel Reception. On the morning, your pilot will provide you with a short briefing and you will be transported to the launch site, where you can assist with the balloon set up. Before long, it’ll be time for take-off as you gradually and gently float over the Yarra Valley in a beautiful hot air balloon.

    Your flight will last for approximately one hour before you land in a friendly farmer’s paddock! After packing away the balloon, you head back to Sweetwater Cafe where you can celebrate your fabulous morning over a delicious sparkling wine breakfast.
