Where sustainability meets luxury:
Meet the eco sister studios

At Ravensbourne Escape we’re lucky enough to share a border with the Ravensbourne National Park. Home to a unique blend of wet eucalypts and rich, remnant rainforest, our surrounding forests support a huge variety of wildlife.

Our unique location provides stunning natural views, the sound of birdsong and frequent visits from native animals, but it also comes with responsibility. Our accommodation has an important role to play in supporting our local environment and ensuring that it’s protected for years to come.

Serenity and Tranquillity

Back in 2017, we invested in a new range of sustainable, luxury studios. We wanted to create accommodation that included all the creature comforts, without costing the earth, so we dreamed up a design that was low carbon footprint, low energy usage and completely sustainable.

In 2018, after a year of construction, we unveiled our very first eco sister studios – Serenity and Tranquillity. Both studios feature an outdoor spa, scenic breakfast nook, cosy log fire, wrap-around windows and spacious balcony overlooking stunning forest and valley views. Energy efficient and eco-friendly, our eco sister studios are the perfect place to reconnect with nature.

Sustainability meets luxury

These low-impact, luxury studios capture the unique beauty of our location, while blending into the surrounding landscape. Minimal maintenance and minimal energy consumption, our eco sister studios are constructed of recycled and zero-carbon footprint materials.

Their eco-design includes:

  • Weathertex® eco-friendly hardwood and wax composite cladding
  • Trex® recycled plastic and reclaimed timber composite decking
  • Gravity sewerage system (no electricity)
  • Chlorine-free Ozone spa
  • LED lighting
  • Outdoor furniture made from recycled PET bottles
  • Instant electric hot water
  • Solar panels

To Affinity and beyond

To our delight, our guests loved our luxury studios as much as we did. Since their release, each studio has amassed hundreds of 5-star reviews and are booked out most weekends. In 2019, Tranquillity won a Queensland Tourism Award for Best Self-Contained Accommodation.

After such an overwhelming response, we set about growing our luxury studio family. With the help of local builder Design Master Homes, we made refinements to our original designs and this year we released our third sister studio – Affinity.

Affinity’s design features a larger balcony, larger spa and the latest Cera Facade cladding from Modinex made from concrete and fibre cement. This provides better thermal and sound insulation, as well as being zero maintenance, carbon-neutral and 100% fire resistant. 

Together our three eco sister studios, along with our eight other luxury houses have seen us make the Best of Queensland Experiences list three years running. Now we are setting our sights on the future, with plans to introduce two more eco studios in the coming years.
