At this five-star Gold Coast retreat, exquisite architecture combines with a luxurious fitout and world-class location to offer an exclusive getaway.
An unbeatable location Ruffles Lodge is tucked away in the magnificent Gold Coast hinterland. Positioned midway between the coast and the mountains, and with theme parks, bushwalks and quaint villages close by, it offers guests the best of all worlds.
New additions This sublime setting provided the perfect canvas for Allen Jack+Cottier’s renovation. In 2008, AJ+C’s Brisbane office completed the design of three new, secluded villas for the retreat, along with the day spa and office/reception facilities. A new house for the owners was also built, in keeping with the other buildings’ relaxed mood and style.
Ruffles today The lodge boasts myriad lavish offerings, including fine dining, venue facilities for weddings and conferences, and that indulgent day spa. Guest accommodation takes the form of villas, tree houses and rooms in the lodge itself.
