Constantly voted one of the best hotels in the world for food, Cape Lodge can be found amid the famous corduroy landscape of the Margaret River on WA's south-west coast - an hour's flight from Perth. Sitting pretty on the restaurant's veranda which hovers above the property's shimmering lake guests indulge in a mouth-wateringmenu that changes daily and draws inspiration from its local offerings - like Abrolhos scallops with Margaret River Venison carpaccio and seared Tasmanian salmon, sautéed silver beet with saffron beure blanc. Food enthusiasts can now enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse of executive chef Tony Howell and his talented team at work as well as participate in the new range of cooking schools, master classes and gourmet events held throughout the year. These exclusive experiences will nicely compliment your chauffeur-driven tour of the local wineries featuring prominent labels like Vasse Felix and Cullen. Put up your heels in style in a wide choice of luxury gabled accommodation neatly spaced to let you relax and soak up the serene views at leisure. Cream of the crop is the five-bedroom private residence with additional two-bedroom guesthouse and its own gourmet kitchen for hosting private dinner parties.
