Fodor's Review

Set high on a hill in manicured gardens, six private villas, three tree houses, and an executive lodge suite with an expansive separate living room have views to the Gold Coast beaches and high-rises as well as the surrounding bushland. The tree houses have their own plunge pools; the spacious spa villas and executive lodge suite boast fireplaces, hot tubs, plasma TVs, and complementary high-speed Internet. Owners John and Jan Nicholls create a warm, comfortable environment, while award-winning onsite restaurant Vue175 sates the senses with its three-course a-la-carte dinners (A$75) in the lodge's view-rich, sleekly refurbished dining room. Between meals, melt the hours away at Ruffles' tranquil day spa.
