Empire Retreat and Spa

save place
Fashionable farmhouse

Like all great empires, this one grew from solid foundations. The old stone and timber farmhouse at the heart of Empire Retreat and Spa, a boutique hideaway in Margaret River, was once the owner's family home. Today, the Empire has expanded to include a handful of modern-rustic rooms and a signature day spa. If you'd prefer wine to mud wraps, an onsite vineyard showcases the region's stars, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. There's a subtle eastern flavour throughout, with water features, artfully placed Buddha statues, ramrod-straight bamboo groves and antique Asian furniture.

Slink into Empire Spa for a seductive range of treatments, including a three-hour Opulence session that will have you scrubbed, rubbed and soaked into submission.
