With the surrounding chaos that is life, it can be hard to set aside some quality time with your better half to simply soak in each other’s company or get the sparks flying again.
No special occasion needed, we’ve rounded up some of the best romantic getaways in Western Australia to spoil your significant other and soak in all the romantic feels with candlelit dinners, outdoor baths, and a few rose petals here and there.
Hidden Valley Forest Retreat
Anywhere with an outdoor bathtub is automatically classified as romantic in our books.
This tranquil retreat has five forest chalets spread across a 110-acre property, all with complete privacy and the surroundings of forest greenery, lakes, and orchards. During winter you can cosy up by the crackling fire and listen to the rain on the roof, or simply sit out in the crisp air with a cuppa and take in the pristine countryside.
- Location: Carbunup River

Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef
Waking up with the sun in an eco-luxe safari tent and looking out across the sparkling waters of Ningaloo Reef just screams ‘romantic getaway for two’.
Sal Salis offers views of the untouched outback on one side and one of the world’s greatest coastlines on the other. You’ll feel completely disconnected from reality in your own little slice of natural paradise, with plenty of relaxing or exciting ways to fill your days.
- Location: Yardie Creek Rd, Cape Range National Park

La Forêt Enchantée
A private forest retreat set exclusively on ten acres of private Margaret River waterfront, La Forêt Enchantée is your dream fairytale setting for a romantic weekend away.
The renaissance-inspired garden surrounds will certainly stir up the love, alongside lush greenery, bubbling fountains, and wide verandahs stretching to open sky decks. Two secluded cabins are on offer, both with luxurious furnishings, marble bathrooms, and seductive mood lighting perfect for rose petals, evening meals, and bubbles.
- Location: 5903 Caves Rd, Burnside

Berkeley River Lodge
The ultimate location for complete privacy, this tranquil lodge is only accessible via a private airstrip.
You’ll be wedged between Timor Sea sunrises and Berkeley River sunsets at a Kimberley gem that brings all the lovey feels with a remote luxury lodge experience. The villa accommodation offers unbeatable views and the surroundings make for experiences like river cruises, gorge hikes, and fine dining under the stars.
- Location: Berkeley River

Petit Eco Cabin
Whisk them away to the adults-only retreat that is Petit Eco Cabin.
Not only is the cabin itself visually stunning, but its surrounding lush green bush and nearby lake overlooking the organic vineyard make the backdrop equally picture-perfect. Your bed will look out a waterfall window framing the farm and vineyard views, and you can find a vintage outdoor bath tucked around the corner for a private soak.
- Location: Margaret River

The Swan Valley Retreat
An escape to the lush green vineyards of Swan Valley could be exactly what you and your significant other need for a little one-on-one time.
The Swan Valley Retreat offers a chance to recharge and soak in the serenity, explore glasses of award-winning wine, and indulge in a luxurious day spa with a couples massage to really alleviate the stress. It features just three rooms to maintain seclusion, but we’d recommend going for The Wine Barrell room with your own private outdoor hot tub.
- Location: 79 Irwin St, Henley Brook

Lakeside Spa Apartment
Go back to the honeymoon period at this lakeside escape.
You’ll enjoy lake and vineyard views from a stylish apartment space and unwind in the large spa bath with a provided glass of Bettenays wine and a delightful cheese platter. Breakfast items are also provided so you can make their morning even more magical with a brekky in bed as the golden light floods in.
- Location: Bettenays, Margaret River

Sitting pretty among bushland and vineyards in Margaret River, Cape Lodge will become your very own private country estate.
It’s private, stylish, sophisticated, and also home to a restaurant boasting seasonal dishes and wine straight from their vineyard. You can take on a morning stroll through their private walking trails, spend an evening under the trees stargazing or explore Margaret River and its surrounds in your spare time.
- Location: 3341 Caves Rd, Yallingup

Balingup Heights Hilltop Forest Cottages
Nestled among jarrah and marri trees, six cosy bush cottages welcome you for a private and romantic escape among the scenery.
As the name suggests, they sit high on a hilltop forest overlooking spectacular views, and offer plenty of opportunities to reconnect and spend some quality couple time together. Think a glass of wine by the wood fire, a hand-in-hand walk through the enchanting bush, or a dinner by candlelight.
- Location: 65 Balingup-Nannup Rd, Balingup
- Bookings: balingupheights.com.au
The Grove at Ryan’s Rest
You’ve probably seen the popular Ryan’s Rest pop up on your social media a few times by now, so here’s your sign to book a romantic escape at their property known as The Grove.
It’s an adorable tiny house with a whole heap of rustic charm, sitting on a plot of farmland that overlooks lemon orchards. The real seller though is the stunning wood-fired outdoor bath — we can definitely envision a candlelit soak with a wine glass in hand under the stars here. Romance levels? Off the chart.
- Location: Quinninup
- Bookings: airbnb.com.au
Premier Mill Hotel
When you think romantic getaway, I can safely assume you don’t think of heading out to the Wheatbelt — but Premier Mill Hotel might change all that.
It’s a beautifully restored old mill in the town of Katanning, featuring touches of heritage charm blended with small elements of luxury. Your escape to the country will be done in style at one of its 22 rooms, and the intimate underground bar will serve as a romantic evening starter with mood lighting and a share plate menu.
- Location: Cnr of Clive Street &, Austral Terrace, Katanning
- Bookings: premiermillhotel.com
Discovery Rottnest Island
A trip to Rottnest doesn’t always have to be a family affair.
The slightly newer glamping accommodation of Discovery Rottnest Island provides a perfect two-person tent stay under the stars where you can relax to the sound of washing waves and nature. The island itself offers plenty of opportunities for romance, too, from a stroll along picturesque beaches to bike rides past pink salt lakes or a sunset picnic perched on the dunes.
- Location: Discovery Rottnest Island
- Bookings: discoveryholidayparks.com.au
Esperance Chalet Village
The glistening waters and untouched nature of Esperance already create the perfect setting to get sparks flying, and this chalet village provides a picturesque base camp to call home for a bit.
Charming king shacks and log cabins are ideal for couples seeking some alone time, sprawled across private grounds surrounded by nature with the sound of lapping waves and chirping birds becoming your new morning alarm.
