The Best Romantic Getaways in the Adelaide Hills

Discover this delightful romantic retreat near Adelaide

Where's the best place for a romantic getaway in South Australia?

The Adelaide Hills has some wonderful scenery and accommodation, perfect for every occasion. The beautiful environment and atmosphere is great for cultivating a sense of calm and relaxation.

Venture further out and you'll find historic Murray River towns such as Murray Bridge, Tailem Bend and Mannum.

Mannum is a historic town on the west bank of the Murray River, an idyllic place just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide. Here, you can meander gently up the river on a historic paddle steamer before kicking back at one of the many pubs perched on the riverbank.

Of course, the best romantic getaway in the Adelaide Hills is at Riverview Rise Retreats!

And we've just been awarded a Traveller Review Award for 2023! recognise that we consistently exceed travellers' expectations in our accommodation and service.

Stay in natural country surroundings in South Australia

The best romantic couples getaway near Adelaide!

Riverview Rise Retreats is the only luxury accommodation where your satisfaction is GUARANTEED. The Retreats have been purpose built for rest and relaxation.

There are just three architecturally refined villas nestled into our escarpment on the Murray River, providing a truly unique, boutique retreat experience.

Designed by the owner, movie set designer and artist Michael Chorney, the primary motivation was to create a modern, luxurious destination for couples only.

Absolute privacy is achieved by the positioning and landscaping of the buildings. It is possible to stay for several days, and never see another human, either through the picture frame windows or on the surrounding grounds.

Unlike other accommodation facilities, we specialise in one-of-a-kind experiences with exceptional service tailored around your needs.

Stay for a few days and enjoy time together, have lazy sleep-ins and delicious food, linger over dinner, taste and try more at a relaxing pace. There's no need to rush home!

Luxury accommodation when visiting SA

For people visiting South Australia from interstate, or for international tourists, Mannum is a perfect location to use as a hub from which to tour the best food, wine, wildlife and scenery destinations around Adelaide. There are many great places to visit and things to do.

Experience the good life on the river and do some bird watching along the Murray River, the world's fourth largest river system.

Besides our luxury accommodation, we have ready-made packages for anniversary celebrations, wedding nights and other special occasions. Our aim is to exceed your expectations in quality and service.

For your enjoyment, we have a late 2pm check-out so that you can relax for longer.
