Perhaps you’re aching to shake off the stress in a place that allows your mind to begin harmonising with your body once again; perhaps you and your partner are searching for a romantic escape, or there’s a very special date in the calendar that wants to be celebrated surrounded by serene beauty in style and luxury.

The newly opened Bella’s at the Cottage Garden Studio and Amani Luxury Eco-Lodge are designed for couples, small groups, wellness retreats and workshops – a welcome addition to Belle Escapes’ portfolio of luxury holiday properties on the Central Coast.


AMANI LUXURY ECO-LODGE

Amani Lodge is a luxury retreat designed in absolute harmony with the surrounding environment; nestled within 20 acres of natural bushland, everything has been meticulously considered to relax the mind yet spoil the senses. The lodge is a luminous expression of innovative Australian design blended with sumptuous style and superb craftsmanship – it merges striking forms with the artful play of light and dimension to create a magical experience of unexpected discovery and beauty.

The interiors are sensational, with the warmth of imported stone matched by reclaimed vintage beams from Balmain’s wharfs, a striking tallowwood staircase and artworks sourced from around the globe. The strong, organic forms of the Lodge are perfectly balanced by the highly tactile interior design and its seamless connection to the surrounding bushland.

It’s perfectly set up for two couples with a grand, open-plan living space anchored by a state-of-the-art kitchen, a vast, wood-burning fireplace and lavish ensuite bedrooms in separate wings for absolute privacy. Soaring ceilings are fitted with solar-powered skylights that welcome abundant natural light and greenery into this enchanting space; built among the tree canopy, the main living hub is cool and breezy in summer months and cosy throughout the winter.

If you’ve never experienced a traditional Kol Kol wood-fired hot tub, you’re in for treat: relax your body and mind before enjoying a cocktail and dinner on the expansive decks or pull right up to the fire pit for an evening of laughter under the stars.

The Lodge takes privacy and tranquillity to a new level. Cocoon yourself in raw organic cottons and all the luxurious inclusions one would expect in such a remarkable property. Amani Lodge invites you to switch off and get back to nature, intentionally dismissing the need for internet or television cables. Far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet only moments from some of the most desirable beaches and locales the Central Coast has to offer, Amani Luxury Eco Lodge is elegance redefined.

BELLA’S AT THE COTTAGE GARDEN STUDIO

Bella’s creates a truly unforgettable experience the moment you step over its threshold; your cares drop away, and you’re immediately enveloped by the richly textured interiors and a beautifully modern aesthetic.

Set on five gorgeous acres featuring gardens created by renowned landscape and garden designer Michael Cooke, the cottage dates back more than 100 years and has been brilliantly reimagined as a Hamptons-style home. Bella’s Cottage is ideal for two or three couples with room to spare.

Inside the front door, guests will be struck by the abundance of natural light and the Instagram-worthy interior design. Glimpses of the countryside seem to appear from every angle, with French doors blurring the distinction between indoors and out.

The interior of the home effortlessly combines modern design with heritage elements for a seamless take on rural style; there are three luxurious bedrooms, two designer bathrooms and a superb collection of alfresco spaces, including the wraparound verandah with a deep daybed plus a sunlit deck on the upper level. The upstairs bedrooms have fireplaces and are fully stocked with timber for cooler months – both bedrooms are beautifully furnished, as are the Travertine bathrooms, where you’ll find luxury body wash, scrubs and shampoo.

The kitchen is also newly renovated and equipped with Smeg appliances and an eclectic mix of vintage crockery and designer pieces. Other notable features of Bella’s include ducted climate control, surround sound that’s Bluetooth connected, D&G expresso machine, a mature vegetable garden, barbecue facilities and an indoor/outdoor breakfast bar.

Bella’s Cottage feels like another world entirely, yet it’s no more than a five-minute drive from Terrigal’s stunning beachfront, 10 minutes to Erina Fair and only 90 minutes from Sydney’s CBD.
