Hotel Facilities - Information
Ruffles Lodge is the perfect retreat offering from a beautiful setting for romantic weekends to executive retreats and weddings.
The main building is an extension of the Queenslander style with large veranda, stone walls, high ceilings and beautiful timbers. The use of aged timbers re-milled from 100-year-old wharves along the Brisbane river, add to the charm. The dining and lounge area is an ideal place for meeting before dinner. The large covered terrace also provides another place for dining during the warmer months and the poolside gazebo with its wood-fired oven is yet another great place for dinner or breakfast with views east across rambling hills to the ocean. The "garden gazebo", situated on a raised knoll with views in all directions and the sun all day, is an ideal place to relax with a book, enjoy a coffee or a complimentary drink from the fridge.
Ruffles Lodge has been built on 50 acres with 3 acres of garden and parklands, bush and forest of the Gold Coast HInterland as our neighbors. Special attention has been paid to walks, whether it is the 1km track
that surrounds the lodge or the extensive network of trails that extend
for miles into the bush and forest surrounding the property.
The tranquility and peace a beautiful garden instills is enhanced by the birds and animals that native plants and shrubs encourage. This is only enhanced by the inclusion of several water features, making it both a relaxing and inspiring place for executive retreats and other important occasions. For the golfing enthusiast there is a "par 3" golf hole with bunker, putting and chipping areas. It makes for a very special private place from the moment you enter the security gate and drive the 1km to the lodge.
Located in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland, Ruffles Lodge is sure to please with its tranquil atmosphere and beautiful secenery. Reserve your luxury accommodation with Ruffles Lodge today.
Garden Villas are separate to the main lodge with Villa 1 and 2 each separated by a porch and Villa 3 stands alone. All have 180 degree views across the rural land of the Gold Coast Hinterland, to the Broadwater and ocean beyond. The Coomera River meanders from behind hills to the south into the foreground where it joins the Broadwater. The high-rise buildings of Surfers Paradise can clearly be seen to the south and at dusk the skyline becomes a panorama of lights.
Chums' Spa Villas
"Chums" is the only two storey accommodation at Ruffles and was originally designed as an area for our friends, hence the name, but has now been upgraded to guest accommodation and is affectionately known as "Chums' Up" and "Down". Chums Up has a large deck area with a day bed and has filtered views to the coast and valley to the north. The outlook over the large gardens is pleasant and gives a feeling of peace. To maximize the outlook from Chums Down we have included sliding glass doors and patios on both sides.
Our new luxury Executive Suite situated at the northern end of the Lodge with spectacular views from the living room to the coast and a northerly aspect across the valley from the spacious bedroom. This would surely rate high amongst the best accommodation available on the Gold Coast or Brisbane. The overall size of the suite, excluding the surrounding deck is 86 sq.metres. The suite also has it's own private garden.
The bedroom has a King size bed, walk-in dressing room with ample areas for suitcases; TV, large deck with comfortable outdoor furniture and the beautifully appointed bathroom has a spa bath.
The Treehouse Pool Villas
These three new Villas are situated 200 metres from the main Lodge and are built into the side of the hill, "pole house" style. There are breathtaking views from the plunge pool and two decks.
Attached to each Villa is undercover parking and a place for the golf buggy, which can be used to move between the Villa and the Lodge. The bedroom is on a mezzanine level, two steps below is the living area leading to the deck and pool areas. The bathroom with its free-standing Spa bath also has spectacular views. Every effort has been taken with the selection of quality linen and L?Occitane toiletries.
