SLOW STAYS

The official edit of the world’s best slow and sustainable accommodation

Your property + Slow Stays
= The Perfect Alignment

Congratulations on creating such a beautiful space. You’ve certainly caught our eyes.

At Life Unhurried, we’re passionate about delivering truly show-stopping slow and sustainable accommodation options to the lives of more people in Australia and around the world. With our Slow Stays Directory you can now amplify your property into the hearts and minds of more conscious travellers looking for a place to slow down and find true connection. 

Showcasing a collection of unique accommodation from across the country, each property listed has been run through the ‘Slow Stays Scale’ to ensure it offers not only a stylish spot to sleep but serious substance. Since properties need to satisfy a combination of criteria, and are reviewed by a team of discerning editors, not algorithms, it ensures you become a part of a highly desirable collective.

We know that now more than ever, Australians are looking for unique places to stay in their own backyard but they want to ensure they’re treading lightly on the planet at the same time. Major booking sites might be convenient but what we’ve found is travellers really want a trusted, curated collection of truly special places over an endless sea of choices.

We believe a holistic approach is the key to life, so we certainly haven’t built the directory in isolation of our entire Life Unhurried ethos. We are dedicated to showcasing positive conversations about slow living, sustainability and creating space for what matters most. We only promote businesses with integrity and content that we personally align with.

That’s where you come in.
