Arriving hand in hand with the new accommodation is the new Curlewis Clubhouse. Commanding in both scope and ambience, no detail or expense has been spared in bringing The Bellarine’s newest and most dynamic destination to life.

Inside and out, charisma abounds this elegant space. Offering an utter slice of paradise to explore, here guests can embrace spectacular views spanning fairways, greens and bay; meander past the “Warhol Wall” boasting six limited edition, signed prints by world-renowned American artist Andy Warhol; or immerse themselves in chill mojo on the grand veranda or sun-drenched East Terrace.

A luxury hub no doubt, it’s here that you find Claribeaux. This new signature restaurant will delight with its’ creative structural form and culinary options – French influence, contemporary fusion and a keen focus on sustainable local produce. Think oysters, confit salmon, Portarlington mussels, smoked eel, steak frites and charred Bellarine double rib lamb cutlets, just to name a few. Desserts? Think wind berry creme brulee, cherry calfoutis and a coconut and passionfruit mille fuille. Magnifique!

Alongside the spectacular views spanning the fairways and greens of Curlewis Golf Club, the restaurant is levelled up with an impressive local and international beverage list, guaranteeing a state of blissful indecision. What’s more, it’s a local gem where everyone is welcome, so you don’t need to be a guest to indulge.

You’ll also find Ivor’s Spike Bar for a more intimate, relaxed occasion. Named after Ivor Chappell, an all-round living Curlewis legend, here you’ll find breakfast bites, signature goodies for lunch, good beer on tap, relaxed vibes, sunset snacks, and a bar open until late. Kick back with six beer taps and a wine list that touches all bases and original cocktail creations as well as subtle plays on old classics. Cosy up inside or relax out on the north-facing deck.

Of course, there’s also well-loved The Range @ Curlewis with all-day dining, and in-room dining available.

For those looking for a true staycation experience, the new space also offers pretty fancy packages, pairing accommodation, golf and dining that will have you feeling a million bucks in no time at all.

Whether you’re heading to the region for business or pleasure, or you’re a local just wanting to level-up your weekend, make sure you optimise your stay here with some of the best views going and everything you could possibly need to make your stay a blast.
