Icon Central Halls Gap offers central, yet secluded nature-based luxury spa accommodation for couples and is just minutes' walk to cafes & restaurants and popular nature walks in the Grampians, including the Pinnacle Walk.
Spend a morning cycling around the little village or hiking in the national park and enjoy the peace, tranquillity and beauty of the rugged mountain ranges. Afterwards, unwind in the master suite's sauna then sink back into the huge oval spa as you watch over Halls Gap valley kangaroos and wildlife.
In the afternoon, catch up on some extra work or attend that unavoidable conference call from the fully equipped study, and in the evening choose between a long, romantic dinner in one of Halls Gap's finest restaurants, or stay in and make use of the built-in pizza oven in the private courtyard. Enjoy the open wood fire long into the night as you sip on award-winning local wines and graze on the highest-quality local produce, all thoughtfully selected and provided by your hosts prior to your arrival.
