Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a conservation-based retreat that combines absolute luxury and seclusion with a quintessentially Australian bush experience. Located a scenic 2.5 hours’ drive (190kms) from Sydney in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the resort is nestled between two national parks and set within its own 7,000-acre, carbon-neutral conservation and wildlife reserve. All resort accommodation and amenities have been designed using cutting-edge technology and innovative conservation measures whilst perfectly echoing the heritage architecture of the original Homestead located on the property.
This ultra-luxury resort occupies just two per cent of the total land area and features 40 elegantly appointed, free-standing accommodation suites reminiscent of the Federation period, each with its own swimming pool, double-sided fireplace and private verandah with stunning views of the Wolgan Valley and rugged sandstone escarpments.
The Main Homestead features several dining settings, including the magnificent Wolgan Dining Room with panoramic valley views; The Country Kitchen, a providore-style casual restaurant serving lunch and lighter meals; the Valley Bar & Terrace; a walk-in wine cellar with over 150 carefully selected wines and an assortment of local cheeses; and the Creekside Room, a private dining room for special events.
Offering the ultimate in spa luxury and relaxation is the One&Only Spa – a tranquil retreat that features an extensive range of exquisite treatments designed to revitalise mind, body and soul. The spa incorporates Australia’s own Sodashi skin care products, which are 100% natural and chemical-free.
The resort’s unique blend of native wildlife, breathtaking landscapes and Australian history can be explored through a range of activities that include wildlife safaris, nature walks, heritage tours, mountain biking and horseback riding. In an effort to help preserve and protect the resort’s natural surroundings, guests may also take part in conservation work alongside expert field guides.
