9 South Australian Bathtubs You’ll Want to Take a Dip In

It may be too cold for a dip in the pool, but winter is the perfect time to luxuriate in a bathtub with a glass (or bottle!) of wine – and we’re not talking about your regular run-of-the-mill hotel bathtubs.

Instagram is swarming with photos of glamorous bathers in envy-inducing tubs and we’ve managed to track down nine divine bathtubs to cosy up in this winter. And the best part? They’re all on Aussie soil, so you can leave your passport at home.

Cliff House at Lifetime Private Retreats, Kangaroo Island

Do bathtubs really get much better than this? This jaw-dropping scene on Kangaroo Island is just one of many luxuries in the Cliff House at Lifetime Private Retreats. Soak up sweeping coastal views and try to spot some local dolphins in your own private heated spa while the property’s catering team prepare dinner. Bliss.

Shadow Creek, McLaren Vale

Overlooking McLaren Vale’s rows of vines, Shadow Creek is a luxurious hideaway where guests can slip into a deep-soak tub and enjoy beautiful views. Dry off after a relaxing bath with a warm seat by the double fireplace that opens into both the living and bedroom.

Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island

The seemingly endless landscape that surrounds Kangaroo Island’s famous Southern Ocean Lodge provides an idyllic backdrop for a five-star soak. With floor-to-ceiling windows, you will feel like you’re immersed in the rugged wilderness while getting to enjoy all the indulgences you would expect of such a luxe property.
