Where to stay in the Adelaide Hills

Sticky Rice Villas, Stirling

The Sticky Rice Villas are located behind the Sticky Rice Cooking School – and both get rave reviews.

You don’t have to be a student at the school to book a villa, but it certainly seems to add to the experience: what’s not to like about a day of learning to cook Asian-style cuisine then polishing off your creations with paired wines before tumbling into bed?

The three villas are small sensations of Asian style (informed by Balinese and Japanese aesthetics and furnishings) with indulgences like private courtyards, deep standalone baths and state of the art kitchens.

The complex won an architectural award in 2013 and has hosted a number of top chefs, including Tetsuya. It’s located about a kilometer from the centre of Stirling.

Rooms from: $310

Ideal for: Couples, gourmands, fun-lovers.

Not good if: You don’t like rice.
