The 12 Most Popular Brisbane Hotels with In-Room Spa Baths

Most travellers are hard-pressed turning down an in-room spa bath, especially when it looks fit for Cleopatra or Julius Caesar. Often the scene of a romantic night complete with champagne and strawberries, spa baths add a touch of opulence to any Brisbane holiday.

Considered somewhat of a rare luxury, in-room spa baths, or Jacuzzis, are still quite difficult to find, even in big cities such as Brisbane. Many of our 26 million-plus Australian visitors each year, however, are looking for that exact amenity. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of the 12 most popular Brisbane hotels with spa baths, along with some tips for a romantic date in the city.

When visiting Brisbane, don’t let the night end with dinner. Instead, cosy up with bubbles, chocolate and a special someone by choosing a hotel with the best spa amenities.

Brisbane’s Top Romantic Activities

It may not be the most obvious choice for a romantic getaway, but Brisbane can still fan the flames with secluded spots, candle-lit restaurants, and fun activities. Here are the five best excursions for a romantic day or night.

1. Mt Coot-tha at Night

If there’s a view of Brisbane that can’t be matched, it’s the one from the top of Mt Coot-tha. This iconic Brissy landmark is a short drive, or a two-hour walk for those active couples, uphill until the famous lookout with a cafe, restaurant and grassy area for throwing down a picnic blanket.

Pack a basket full of wine, cheese and chocolate, and head up to the lookout around sunset. Visitors can settle in and watch the city flicker to life while cosying up to their loved ones. Splurge on a table at Summit Restaurant & Bar or save those dollars for an ice cream from the cafe.

2. Kayaking, Rock Climbing and a Steak Dinner

It may sound more like a boys’ weekend, but for active couples the Riverlife facilities at Kangaroo Point provide the perfect day out for bonding and adventure. A range of activities are available during the day such as abseiling and climbing Kangaroo Point Cliffs, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking the river, and Segway tours along the riverside boardwalks.

A 90-minute kayak excursion coupled with a romantic dinner under a marquee by the water gives visitors one of Brisbane’s most superb vacation combinations. Expect buckets of fresh king prawns on Friday and a traditional Aussie barbeque on Saturday, along with chilled beer, wine and soft drinks.

3. Love among the Clouds

If visitors have time and a little more money, they can forget about dinner and a movie and instead take to the sky in a hot-air balloon or scenic helicopter flight. Both are available just outside of the city and can show a whole new world of offshore islands, city skyscrapers and breathless countryside.

Wake up early for the City and Country Balloon Flight and a champagne breakfast for unforgettable scenery from Brisbane all the way to the scenic rim; certainly a worthwhile venture. Visitors might even find time to say those four life-changing words while they’re up there.

4. Meet the Locals

Take a leisurely ferry ride down the Brisbane River to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where friendly koalas, chirping native birds, dingoes, platypuses and even Tasmanian devils greet guests. One of Australia’s more interactive animal environments, Lone Pine presents opportunities to get up close to many of its animals.

Take a couple’s shot with a cuddly koala, feed kangaroos in an open park, stand close to huge emus and watch birds of prey perform incredible aerial feats. Visitors walk away with plenty of memories and a greater appreciation for Australian wildlife.

5. Market Delights

Boundary Street, in West End, also welcomes its share of excellent markets each month. The most prominent are the Boundary Street Markets where visitors will find hundreds of local growers, artists, and designers selling unique and beloved products.
