Q. What’s the difference between the Satin (aka Private) Spa Bower, the Double King Bedroom Bower and the Premium Spa Bower ?

A. The details of each type of Bower we offer are as below:

1.Premium Spa Bower, which has a deep double spa, log fire and king size bed (such as flat screen TV mounted on a swivelling wall mount to allow viewing from lounge or bedroom, reverse cycle air con, separate double shower from the spa & piped music to the spa room, etc.) The king beds in the Premium Bowers are a pillow top’ type and some guests find they are a little soft.

2. Re-furbished Satin Private Spa Bower has the same deep double spa, log fire and king size bed as before, but with the addition of under-floor heating in the bathroom and loo, as well as a separate shower recess with Italian stone tiles alongside the double spa bath. We’ve also installed reverse cycle air con & piped music to the spa room. The kitchen has also been completely updated with new fixtures and appliances. These king beds are a firmer type than those in the Premium Bower [above] and some guests prefer that.

3. Double King bedroom Bower is essentially the same as a re-furbiished Satin Private Spa Bower except that it has a second king bedroom with a king size bed which can be split into to 2 x single beds, if required.

What are the differences between each type of Bower ?


We offer  two types [see below] of  “Bowers”  [plus our new Bambino American Airstream travel trailer] designed for couples. They offer similar levels of luxury accommodation, but details of each type  are as below:

If a spa bath isn’t on your list of “must haves”, the Bambino also offers exceptional privacy and luxury in a smaller space, but with a great outdoor area for relaxing in the sun or under the stars at night.

Are there many 4wd Tracks and Trails near The Bower ?


According to our local eco-guide, “Some of the nicest forest driving can be found not far from the Bower in an area called the Deua River National Park – the park consists of fire trails and creek crossings. I would suggest you check out Diamond Creek Falls and Donalds Creek Gorge, [both will show up on a google search].

The other pla4wd Bowerce is the Tuross River Valley, head south from the Bower to the town of Bodalla and then turn right towards the town of Eurobodalla, here you will find a lovely valley with river crossings and a famous waterfall called Tuross Falls.

What cooking facilities will I have in my Bower ?

What cooking facilities will I have in my Bower ?

Each Bower is designed to be completely self contained with its own private kitchen, equipped with refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher plus a BBQ on the timber deck. Therefore you’re welcome to self cater, plus we can alsromantic-getaways-ultimate-private-bower-launch (37)-1400o order in a range of ‘ready to cook’ BBQ hampers, as an additional option.

We also offer a selection of romance packages and picnic hampers, should you prefer. The ‘bowers’ are designed with a full kitchen so guests can self cater … the hamper options are just an extra service that some people [who don’t want to or can’t cook] like to take advantage of.

If you’re pressed for time, there’s an excellent IGA with quality meat and local produce (plus easy parking etc.) about 2kms away from us at Tomakin.

Do you cater for guest’s pets ?



The Bower is designated a ‘wildlife refuge’ and our management plan specifies that we cannot accept guests pets on the property.

However, as animal lovers ourselves, we can recommend some excellent local pet boarding houses and even pet friendly accommodation that may be better suited to you and your best friend[s].


Do you cater for children ?

For those who want to spend some quality time together with a romantic escape for two.  The Bower is designed for couples [to have a break from the kids] and therefore is not suitable for children. Enjoy an escape that caters to all your wants and needs in a child-free environment – perfect for parents and non-parents alike.

Some of the feedback from guests has been;

  • “Dear Sue & Mark , Thanks for everything !!! Your Bower has made a special place in our memories. The birds, possums & frogs made the serenity even more special. The fireplace & seclusion was fantastic. This was the absolute best way to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We missed the kids … but rediscovered us as a couple. Thanks again.” Robyn & Rob
  • “For couples looking to reconnect in an intimate and tranquil setting”.
  • “This is the perfect romantic sanctuary, an ideal setting to pamper the one you love and to be pampered. It’s like a dream that no-one would ever want to wake up from”. Kath & Neil
  • “An adults-only boutique resort offering the ultimate in romance and spellbinding sunset walks”
  • Both celebrating 60 years old and 39 years of marriage. The Black Bower has been sublime. Relaxing, enjoyable and passionate. The luxury, privacy, bush and birds. All made for an idyllic setting in which to re-kindle our romance. Thanks for all the nice touches”. Jan & Jeff

Over the years, our guests [and even those who have kids of their own] have said to us “The Bower is a place for us to escape from the kids, and everybody else’s kids’.

We can however”, recommend some excellent kid friendly alternative accommodation options. We can even recommend a local babysitter who can give you ‘child-free’ nights [at least] while you’re staying at The Bower.  We guarantee they’ll be no screaming babies or over-energetic toddlers to spoil your style – the Bower is for over-16s only.

However, for infants, [in arms], we appreciate it’s a bit difficult to separate them from their Mum’s so as long as they have their own portable cot/bassinette and other required equipment etc. we are quite happy to give Mums with a babe in arms a break at The Bower.

More feedback from guests has been;

  • “This haven of seclusion offers the ultimate in romance”.
  • “Intimate and stylish, this award-winning and owner-managed resort is a romantic hideaway”.
