Pretty Beach House, one of Australia’s most sophisticated yet intimate luxury lodges, has joined the Luxury Lodges of Australia group, further proof that Australia’s era of experiential luxury travel has come of age.
Pretty Beach House is a quintessentially Australian, super sophisticated guesthouse, perched high on the escarpment at Pretty Beach, on the NSW Bouddi Peninsula. Just 100 kilometres north of Sydney, this guesthouse offers a new style of luxury in designer pavilion style accommodation with all-inclusive rates and around the clock butler service.
Pretty Beach House offers just three private pavilions, superb casa linga style dining provided by one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, Stefano Manfredi, and a wealth of guided or self-guided coastal bush walks, beach excursions and water activities.
With easy access from Sydney by car, seaplane, private boat, helicopter or ferry, Pretty Beach House is a coastal bush haven, right on Sydney’s doorstep.
“Pretty Beach House is an outstanding addition to the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection,” said James Baillie, Chair of Luxury Lodges of Australia and owner of globally acclaimed Southern Ocean Lodge.
“The combination of stunning design and service, fantastic attention to detail and all the key luxury standards, combined with the experience of a distinctly Australian coastal bush region, make it a natural fit for this collection of experiential luxury properties.”
Brian Barry, who co-manages the lodge with his wife, Karina, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be part of this new Australian group… the creation of Pretty Beach House has been a highlight in a life in hospitality for Karina and myself."
“Offering our guests an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience is what it is all about for us, and we believe this new partnership will complement all parties involved.”
Luxury Lodges of Australia was formed as a result of the dramatic change in the Australian travel landscape over the past decade, which has seen the emergence of a new breed of exceptional lodges and camps in some of Australia's most beautiful and outstanding regions.
Never before has Australia had a critical mass of experiential luxury properties to appeal to global travellers and adventure seekers.
James Baillie said: “Australia is now, more than ever, one of the most exciting and desirable travel destinations globally. Australia's diversity is unique. No other country in the world has the breadth and depth of experience we have.
“Now, for the first time, in many of our remote regions, this is now offered at the luxe levels expected by experience-seeking luxury travellers.”
