I was contacted recently by a couple from the UK wanting to be married here on the stunning Bellarine. As it is a very special trip and occasion, they asked me to scout around to find some extra special accommodation and three fabulous providers immediately sprung to mind.
ocean grove chalet
Ocean Grove Chalet recently opened its’ doors and offers state-of-the-art rooms, suites and penthouses with views of The Southern Ocean. It’s within a short walk of Ocean Grove’s main drag with its’ funky cafes and restaurants and boasts a stunning heated indoor pool.
You’ll appreciate their attention to detail and beautiful finishes.
Wendy and the Ocean Grove Chalet crew have thought of everything you might need so visit their website and give them a call to discuss your options.
The Nest is a ten minute drive down the road from Ocean Grove Chalet and offers luxury accommodation on Marcus Hill in three beautifully and carefully-designed pods. Whilst you and your loved one are sharing a vino in your private outdoor spa, you will either be amazed at the incredible night-sky with its’ vivid display, or you could be watching ships and tankers track the coast and enter that volatile waterway known as The Rip, on their way up Port Phillip Bay to the Melbourne docks.
You’ll adore everything Angela and Nash have incorporated into these amazing pods so check out their website for availability and contact them soon as there are only three which are consistently booked.
Lon Retreat is a family-owned and run business, located in the sleepy coastal town of Point Lonsdale. If you are after a space where you can completely unwind and get away from it all with 5-star treatment, then this is for you. Take advantage of the on-site Lon Spa for that extra special indulgence and immerse yourself in the health benefits of the mineral water sourced heated pool. The family has thought of everything including a private shuttle service to some of the best restaurants in the region. Lon Retreat is a working farm and is the only accredited 5-star accommodation on The Bellarine.
There are seven rooms with different configurations so contact Claire to discuss what’s perfect for you.
