Last month, Patrick Fox from Reis & James Travel Associates enjoyed a three-day stint in the Blue Mountains, where he stayed at Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa.
A weekend at Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and rejuvenate. One of the Luxury Lodges of Australia, the resort is situated within a 4,000-acre nature reserve in the middle of the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains in NSW, and as such offers 360 degree views of stunning countryside and a wide range of outdoor activities.
Highlights included hiking to a glow worm tunnel in the Wollemi National Park, horse riding around the picturesque nature reserve (all skill levels are catered for), mountain bike riding, and a night wildlife safari. Luxuries such as your own private lap pool, mountain bikes, gourmet meals and outdoor activities are all included in your package.
The rooms themselves are magnificent. With federation-style designs, indoor/outdoor pool (depending on your mood), the latest entertainment and internet technologies, and breathtaking views of the valley, the accommodation masterfully combines state-of-the-art luxury with environmental conservation.
The Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is just three hours drive from Sydney, yet while you’re there it’s as if you’re in another world. I highly recommend this destination to couples who are looking for the perfect weekend getaway.
