“There are two luxury room types to choose from at Alure Stanthorpe and what’s great is, there are only three lodgings so there’s no chance of you feeling over-crowded by other guests. In fact, you may not even see them the whole time you’re there!”

“An almost meditative feeling washed over us as we stepped inside the canvas kingdom. You can even spend the afternoon soaking up the soothing scenery from the hot bubbling spa. And you should.”

“For the first night, we looked around the tent in awe of how it was all constructed. Oh yes, and we can’t forget the huge front and back porch complete with a spa and massive grille.”

“It’s definitely for the A-listers and I can imagine Paris Hilton staying here, or Lady Gaga, slumming it in the great outdoors….”

“Located in the heart of the wine region, Alure Villas offers true convenience; you can cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen or head out to one of several restaurant or cafe choices nearby. The split-level villas are spacious and stylish. Full-length windows bring the 20 hectares of untouched bushland in, and a wood fire and in-house entertainment centre make it hard to leave”.

Courier Mail Q Weekend

26 April 2008
“Sophistication has been slowly creeping into the Stanthorpe B & B Market in recent years and this place proves it. Alure is and oasis of luxury for couples who don’t want to skimp on quality in a country escape.  The 20ha property’s two stand alone villas tick all the boxes for indulgence and each has an outdoor heated spa- perfect for stargazing on chilly Granite Belt nights.  And if fussing hosts drive you mad, don’t worry – the only contact here is when your gourmet breakfast basket is delivered.”

Courier Mail Q Weekend

“Not much is missing from this rural haven.  A private hot tub is fitted onto each villa’s outdoor patio, surrounded by the bush and roofed by stars.  A fireplace, leather lounge and flat screen TV take centre stage in the living area.  The comfy king size bed is perched on a raised platform – perfect for drinking in the stunning natural landscape through the floor to ceiling windows.  And unlike many country guesthouses, these have not a hint of pine furniture or lacy doily, only modern soft furnishings and accessories.”

Aura Magazine, The Art of Living

January-February 2008
“We checked into our very own luxury oasis at Alure Boutique Villas, where we enjoyed a cool and windy Stanthorpe night.  Fully self-contained with a state-of-the- art kitchen, these charming little cottages have been built with luxury in mind.  The bedroom is elevated and the large bed is adorned with expensive sheeting.  There is a spa on the private terrace, as well as fireplace and air conditioning.  Every detail has been taken care of, from the white fluffy bathrobes to the extensive DVD library.”
