A conservation-based resort and spa, opening in October 2009. Comprising 40 free-standing suites and a main homestead with a range of luxury facilities, including the Timeless Spa, Wolgan Valley takes eco luxury to a new level.

Located adjacent to the greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area, bordered by two national parks, Wolgan Valley is set within its own private conservation and wildlife reserve.

Based on Emirates Hotels and Resorts’ acclaimed Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa in Dubai, the group’s first luxury conservation-based resort outside of the Emirates incorporates as many ecologically sustainable design initiatives as possible, from heat exchange technology and solar panels (the resort boasts over 100 solar-energy units), to the locally sourced materials used in construction and decoration of this idyllic rural escape.

Take a guided four-wheel drive or safari to see the wallabies and wallaroo that roam freely, or for those that crave something a little less taxing, simply take in the nature from the comfort of your own private poolside deck or from the treatment table at the spa. The sumptuous Federation-style suites boast all the home comforts one needs for a nature break with a difference.
