Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Blue Mountains, Australia
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is Australia’s first luxury conservation-based resort.
A scenic two and a half hour drive from Sydney, Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is located on Australia’s Great Dividing Range between two national parks and borders the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The resort forms the centrepiece for unique experiences and insights into Australia’s wildlife, history and cultural heritage.
Occupying just two per cent of a 4,000-acre conservancy reserve, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley combines the expectations of the high-end traveller with a commitment to broader social, ecological and environmental sustainability. Heralding a new era of luxury travel in the country, the resort actively protects its surrounding habitat and indigenous wildlife species while delivering the first-class standards and quality expected from luxury resorts.
This secluded resort features 40 individual suites surrounded by wide, private verandas, each with its own indoor/outdoor swimming pool, separate living and bedroom areas, separate walk-in wardrobe, luxurious ensuite bathroom and double-sided fireplace. Its architecture is progressive but classic, reminiscent of traditional rural Australian homesteads.
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is the only resort in recent history to receive permission to be built adjacent to a World Heritage Area.
