Peppers was established in 1984 when Peppers Guest House opened in the Hunter Valley, NSW. At the time, the short break market was still in its infancy but the concept of a contemporary style guesthouse offering relaxation in luxury surrounds was an instant success.

The Peppers Retreats Resorts Hotels

Twenty-two years later, Peppers Retreats, Resorts & Hotels now offers a collection of nineteen indulgent escapes throughout regional Australia and New Zealand and is expanding steadily as demand for luxurious breaks rises.

In March 2005, Peppers Retreats and Resorts was acquired by Finance, tourism and property management group MFS Limited (ASX: MFS). MFS Tourism was then created to manage a series of tourism assets.

In August 2005, MFS Limited created the Stella Resorts Group which provides access to an extensive range of over 100 resorts, retreats, hotels and apartments throughout Australia and New Zealand’s most sought after destinations.

Ranging from self-contained apartments to luxurious resorts and retreats, accommodation spans all major visitor destinations, including Mount Hotham and Falls Creek in Victoria, Tasmania, the Gold Coast, the Daintree rainforest of Tropical North Queensland, and Queenstown, New Zealand.

Offering a selection of exclusive resorts, Stella Resorts Group brands include Bale, Peppers Retreats Resorts & Hotels, Mantra Resorts Hotels and Apartments, BreakFree Hotels Resorts and Apartments and the ski resorts of Mount Hotham and Falls Creek.

The Peppers Collection

Within the collection there exists three distinct styles of property – retreat, resort and hotel. Experiences range from luxury outback cattle stations, intimate vineyard retreats, tropical rainforest lodges, mountain resorts, golfing getaways, grand country estates, to exotic islands. All are within easy reach of a capital city or major town.

Each Peppers property has its own distinctive style and charm; the location is instrumental in defining the property’s character. This is enhanced by Peppers décor, which places a strong emphasis on featuring the natural environment in the design.
