Food dreams - dining on the edge

It feels like the edge of the world but actually you're just sitting in the dining room of Peppers Ruffles Lodge  & Spa which is perched on the edge of the Gold Coast Hinterland. This is gourmet travel at its best.

It's one of those places where you really can't help sinking into the beautifully comfy beds and relaxing at the dining table over a well cooked meal.

They have a rejuvenating weekend of yoga, day spa pampering and gourmet dining experiences coming up on 26-28 October. The two-day ‘Finding Balance for Healthy Living’ event  is designed to help guests achieve a balance between a healthy lifestyle and a busy life, plus embark on  a Gourmet Food Trail discovery of fine local food and wine.

Priced from $744.50* per couple per night, the event package includes two nights accommodation in a Garden or Chums Spa Villa, a fresh fruit basket on arrival, full breakfast daily for two people, a three-course candlelit dinner at Ruffles Restaurant on one evening, a 60 minute full body relaxation or deep release massage for two people at Ruffles Day Spa and an assortment of mind, body and soul experiences on Sunday 28 October.  I've been to the spa - it's gorgeous!

There's also yoga sessions, a degustation lunch and champagne and canap├ęs at the retreat’s poolside gazebo when you arrive.

Ruffles Restaurant recently won the ‘Restaurant in a Hotel / Motel / Resort’ category for the Gold Coast at the 2012 Savour Australia™ Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence – Queensland.

For those who can’t make the weekend event, Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa has a Gourmet Food Trail Package
