Overview – The Louise
A brilliant place to begin your explorations of the Barossa Valley, The Louise is all about exquisite accommodation and to-die-for epicurean experiences.
Cloistered amid gnarled grapevines and revered vineyards, The Louise is a hilltop hideaway with just fifteen softly lit suites containing plenty of private outdoor space to catch the sun’s rays and to appreciate a glowing red sunset. Each suite is furnished with premium bedding, flat screen TV, generously stocked minibar, deep spa tub and rain shower for two. All open up onto their own balcony, terrace or courtyard, and some even have an outdoor rain shower. At check-in, guests are welcomed with complimentary port, fresh fruit and home baked cookies. A Nespresso machine stocked with coffee capsules and tea bags are provided for an afternoon cuppa, while Wi-Fi keeps you connected to loved ones at home. For that special occasion, staff at The Louise can also arrange (at additional cost) things such as welcome flowers, champagne on arrival or an in-room massage.
Take advantage of the strong relationships staff have nurtured with surrounding vineyards by indulging in a signature tour. The Barossa Valley is home to over 80 cellar doors and over 50 artisan producers, most of whom aren’t open to the public. A typical itinerary could involve stops at one or two boutique winemakers, before a gourmet lunch paired with some of the valley’s best vintages. The tour generally concludes with one or two more private tastings. Other exclusive activities include hat-making, cooking classes and breakfast with kangaroos. No stay is complete without a meal at the highly acclaimed Appellation restaurant. The ever-evolving menu advocates seasonal eating and is tailored nightly to reflect what produce is available from neighbouring farms and orchards. You can even book to ‘Meet the Chef’ on Saturday morning, and join them as they shop for dinner ingredients. Work it all off afterwards at the 24-hour fitness centre or by swimming laps in the infinity pool. The sauna is also open all day.
