Highs & Lows

  • These world-class suites are built around Brae restaurant and you must eat at the restaurant if you are staying. After an incredible lunch, rather than driving home, skipping over to a luxury suite is the perfect way to finish off the day.

  • A hot bath overlooking a rainy paddock on a wintery day. Bliss.

  • The suites are powered by solar energy and rainwater is harvested and there is a worm farm biological waste-treatment system.

  • Since you are in such an isolated location, Brae delivers a dinner plate and breakfast in the morning to your door. You don’t have to leave your room. Pure pampering.

  • No one is on site overnight in case anything happens or you lock yourself out of your room without a phone.
