“We both have really busy lives and between our businesses and the family, there’s very little time for each other. When we can find the time — or make the time — to get away from it all, we want luxury, privacy and a special sort of seclusion. We’ve been all around Australia and while we’ve stayed at some fabulous places, we couldn’t find exactly what we had in mind. So we decided to create it — with The Frames.” Rick and Cathy Edmonds
It’s only once you enter your own private retreat and close the gate behind you, that you’ll begin to appreciate the seclusion you’ll enjoy throughout your stay.
There are three unique self-contained retreats to choose from, each with their own sense of style and theme — contemporary, moody or nature — and stunning artwork throughout. Because one of the many defining characteristics of The Frames is the original artwork, specially created by Garry Duncan, to reflect the influences that created The Frames.
For many, particularly frequent travellers, one of the definitions of true luxury accommodation is size. Each of the retreats of The Frames is spacious, open and light, resulting in a real sense of space, and peace.
Besides the layout of the living areas, it’s the attention to detail, everywhere you look, that delivers true luxury living. For instance, the large king-size electric beds which include a tilt function and massage options. You’ll find electric blinds, Smart TV in the lounge room and bedrooms, full kitchen facilities with high-end appliances and a fridge filled with delicious local produce. And of course, each retreat is air conditioned and heated throughout and offers free broadband Wi-Fi.
All three retreats have stunningly beautiful bathrooms specially designed for pampering in mind. Each bathroom has double-headed showers with spa jets, but that’s where the similarities end…
Pastiche has a sunken spa-bath with built-in water feature, an infra-red sauna and a shower overlooking the river.
Montage offers an outdoor spa and deep bath, sauna, and rain shower.
Meanwhile, in the 2 bedroom retreat, Collage, both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms that are identical and separated by a large indoor wet area featuring a 6-person indoor hydra-therapy spa with Smart TV.
Each retreat has a secluded balcony out the front, overlooking the Murray River. At the side, you have your own secluded outdoor area with outdoor kitchen and state-of-the-art BBQ. The spa plus your very own private heated pool with water features and underwater mood lighting help create the sense of a luxury resort with only one difference — the ultimate in privacy — because you won’t see a soul.
