Overview

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, Australia's most environmentally responsible tourist destination, is set amidst the stunning scenery of the rugged Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The unique spa resort is built around a fully restored homestead and nestles within its own private conservation and nature reserve.

Encompassing 40 free-standing luxury suites, each with its own private terrace and swimming pool, Wolgan Valley Resort was built using today's cutting edge technology and yet perfectly echoes the original heritage architecture, allowing it to blend seamlessly with the vastness and dramatic beauty of the Australian bush. Using world-leading conservation measures, the original Homestead has been carefully restored to its former glory.

With six secluded treatment rooms, the Spa at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a haven of tranquillity that will leave you looking and feeling your best.

For those guests keen to maintain their exercise regime while on holiday, there are two outdoor tennis courts onsite, as well as a fully-equipped gymnasium with floor-to-ceiling windows, which present inspiring views of the dramatic Blue Mountains scenery.

Although each guest suite has its own plunge pool, there is also a larger communal pool for all guests to use along with a spa pool, sauna and steamroom.

Please Note: This hotel property may offer both all-inclusive and room-only rates. Please read the rate description information carefully and contact us if you have any questions about what’s included in the room rate.

Location Summary
Just 190 kilometres, or a three hour drive from Sydney in New South Wales, Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is remarkably accessible, yet feels a world away. The Blue Mountain townships are renowned for their quaint antique and curio shops, whilst the area boasts of attractions such as the Zig-zag Railway, cable car, Three Sisters and Jenolan Caves.

The Wolgan Valley is approximately 26 kilometres long, and varies in width from six or seven kilometres at its widest points before it narrows to a bottleneck of just one kilometre where the Wolgan River cuts a deep gorge through the sandstone. Tall, almost vertical cliffs, contrast with the gentle curve of the Valley floor and a private road branches off the Wolgan Road to follow the river through to the property.

Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is located at the Eastern end of the Valley, at the foot of Mount Wolgan and Donkey Mountain (major landmarks at 877 and 995 metres above sea level respectively).

To ensure maximum privacy and seclusion, the resort is for exclusive use of our resident guests only. Outside or day visitors are not permitted.
