You don’t have to drive far from Adelaide to escape to somewhere truly private and romantic. Just 20 minutes from the city centre, you’ll find the award-winning Sticky Rice Villas — three gorgeous self-contained villas in Stirling that provides couples a quiet, relaxing & romantic experience.

Situated in the Adelaide Hills, these Asian-inspired villas make for a great jumping-off point for exploring the renowned cellar doors, restaurants and boutiques of the region. They also provide an ideal base for discovering the best of nature, with both Mount Lofty Botanic Garden and Cleland National Park being only 10 minutes away. And, because the villas are located behind Sticky Rice Cooking School, you can also participate in hands-on Asian, Moroccan, and Spanish cooking classes.

Of course if relaxation is your priority, the three eco-friendly villas (which utilise solar energy and waste water systems) are designed to provide a tranquil and romantic retreat. Each individually styled villa — taking inspiration from Zen, Balinese and Japanese luxury — is enclosed within a private walled courtyard. Floor-to-ceiling windows open to lovely views of the gardens. Designer lighting and contemporary amenities add to the romantic feel. And services of a personal chef may be arranged during your stay.

Bali Villa

Indulge in Indonesian-inspired luxury at this villa that features a palette of warm red, glittering gold and natural wood. Inside, you’ll find a giant timber daybed and a top-of-the-line Jag kitchen. The bedroom is fitted with a sumptuous king sized bed, while its ensuite boasts an overhead rain shower and stone bath with fountain wall spout. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to a sun-drenched courtyard with a Bali hut and fire pit, and a private rear deck.

Yoko Villa

Modern Japanese styling characterises this villa, with low-slung sofas in the living area and a low-platform king sized bed in the bedroom. Shoji screen doors and block-out blinds offer much privacy during slumbers. The bathroom features a deep Japanese bathtub and dual overhead rain shower. And in the Jag kitchen, you can prepare delicious meals to enjoy at the seating area under a Japanese Tea house in the private walled courtyard.

Zen Villa

A calming and uplifting ambiance welcomes you inside the Manager’s Suite. Dressed in white from top to bottom, the villa is accentuated with black leather sofas, chairs, pillows, and decor. The 3.5-metre  island bench in the Jag kitchen makes for a superb gathering place indoors, while the barbecue area in the private courtyard is the perfect spot for lounging under the sun or the stars. The bedroom, with a stand-alone bathtub, can be configured as a king or twin according to your needs and the indoor shower is tucked under the branches of mature pine trees.
