Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is Australia’s first conservation-led luxury resort. It sits lightly on its 7,000 acre conservancy, a place of haunting beauty where ancient ranges frame the sublime 26km-long Wolgan Valley.
The original Homestead has been carefully restored by local craftsmen to exude a real sense of colonial times. It features unique spaces in which to enjoy quiet moments with a good book or a drink, or catch up on the events of the day with friends in a luxurious picturesque setting.
Forty free-standing luxury villas (each with their own private terrace and swimming pool) have been constructed using cutting-edge technology and carbon-zero initiatives, but fashioned to echo the original heritage and blend seamlessly with the beauty of the terrain.
Personal service is paramount at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley and Field Guides are always on hand to inspire guests on how best to indulge in the truly great outdoors.
The elegant One&Only Spa features six double treatment rooms, each with its own Japanese-style soaking tub to complete the experience.
Visitors to Sydney are always amazed when they make the drive into the Blue Mountains region – Australia’s most accessible World Heritage listed wilderness. It covers over one million hectares and features some of the most breathtaking vistas in Australia, an inspiring mix of rainforest, blue-hazed valleys, golden sandstone escarpments, eucalypt forest, canyons and windswept heathlands.
As well as natural beauty, the Blue Mountains is home to some of the country’s most charming towns and villages, offering authentic eco-tourism experiences, unique Australian boutique shopping and interactive nature and wildlife educational experiences. The area is also a wonderful environment for rejuvenation and health and well-being experiences.
During your stay, your breakfast, lunch and dinner, non-alcoholic beverages and a select range of local wine and beer with meals are included in the tariff. You can also take advantage of two on-site nature-based activities per day from the scheduled complimentary list (as defined by the resort and subject to change without notice).
