Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley

New South Wales

Get as far away from the city as possible at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. Surrounded by savannah woodland and overlooking the confluence of two river gorges, it’s set amidst 4000 acres of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and prides itself on being Australia’s first conservation-based luxury resort.

The resort centers around a 19th-century farmhouse, while its stand-alone suites are reminiscent of traditional Australian homesteads. Each of the cozy villa-suites features natural décor and comfortable facilities including its own fireplace, a private pool, a relaxing garden of native flora, and a spacious veranda.

The Wolgan Dining Room or Country kitchen serves regional, seasonal, and organic food. The spa offers therapies drawn from techniques around the world, along with a gym, sauna, and steam room.

When you’re tired of relaxing in your own private pool, the beautifully landscaped communal pool is a wonderful place to unwind before sunset cocktails in the lounge or on the veranda.
