Discover a new "adults only" retreat in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is a beautiful region just north of Brisbane - and one of the first spots I aim to visit once travel in Australia returns to normal. 

A new luxury cabin billed as an "adults only escape" is bringing a touch of Scandinavian-style design to the region with the opening of Scandi at Maleny - the region's latest luxury boutique accommodation, located just 12 minutes out of Maleny township.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom modular cabin offers views across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland's volcanic landscape and valleys..

Owners Pete Coorey and Dee Montalva say their primary focus for Scandi at Maleny was sustainability, and they have taken great care to minimize their environmental footprint.

“Scandi is a modular build, and this alone makes our cabin more sustainable from the get go,” Dee explained.

Scandi was trucked to the site in four separate pieces, before being placed in its final position on an elevated escarpment that offers uninterrupted views of the valley below.

Visitors can expect a stocked pantry with local products. 

The cabin operates off rainwater only and has a self-recycling septic system with the treated water used to maintain the gardens.

In the bathroom, guests will find local products from Maleny-based natural beauty company Mukti, as well as reusable make up wipes. 

“Every item in the cabin was considered in regards to where it was made and where it came from, favouring local products and suppliers where possible with extra points for environmentally friendly aware brands,” Dee said.

Inside the cabin Dee's background as a wedding stylist is evident, with Scandinavian-inspired styling throughout.

Features of the property include an indoor fireplace for chilly hinterland nights, fully equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue.

Dee said the couple's goal was to create a space where guests can enjoy the cabin as if it were their own home.

“We want our cabin to be a place for guests to disconnect so they can reconnect, to sleep deeply with no alarms, and to have uninterrupted conversations with their favourite person.

“We want them to forget about the to-do lists and schedules, and simply be in the moment."

Prices for Scandi at Maleny start from $500 per night, with a two-night minimum stay.
