Just got back from a quick pre Christmas break with my family and discovered heaven! Why I have I not been to Wolgan Valley Spa and Resort before?
This bush paradise lies just three hours from Sydney, just on the other side of the Blue Mountains, nestled in the beautiful Wolgan Valley. The setting for the Wolgan Valley Spa and Resort is stunning. Rugged mountains rise up on three sides. So, too, are the villas, food, spa treatments and service. Sometimes bush holidays can be a bit on the rugged side. This is pure luxury.
Aside from the seven-course meals each evening, served in a beautifully designed Lodge, and delicious lunches at the Country Kitchen café, there are lots of activities. Horse trekking, bush safaris – the estate has over 1500 kangaroos – creek walks, and mountain biking. The estate is amazing to explore. Then there is the spa, where I did most of my exploration! (I highly recommend the hot stone massage with Judith.)
With no mobile service – though there is wireless – it is the perfect place to getaway from it all and totally relax. Sydney is so close, but it might as well be a million miles away. I've not been to a better hotel in Australia. Wolgan Valley is a great spot to take the kids - and even better for a romantic get away.
