Yallingup Luxury Retreat, Yallingup $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:This complex of five villaseach with two suitesis more a self-contained retreat than a full-service hotel. The larger suite in each villa has a dining area, a living room, and a well-equipped kitchen, while the smaller suite has a compact kitchenette and a generously proportioned whirlpool tub. The emphasis throughout is on comfort and luxury, as epitomized by the crazed profusion of cushions in the master bedroom, which sports an almost absurdly high four-poster bed. A chef can be booked in advance, and beauty treatments and picnic baskets are available upon request, but you are otherwise on your own. A large formal garden and beautiful eucalyptus meadow beckon beyond the glass lounge doors; come sundown, wildlife goes bouncing by.2005 Hot List
