Health & Fitness
The hotel's Timeless Spa offers an exclusive selection of treatments and specialist techniques using the 100% natural, chemical-free Sodashi range of products. The outcome is an enhancement of wellness, relaxation and healing. For those guests keen to maintain their exercise regime while on holiday, there is a fully-equipped gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and plunge pool.
If you're a lover of the outdoors and nature, you'll revel in the area's breathtaking natural scenery, enjoying a number of outdoor pursuits, such as horse-riding, nature walks, wildlife safaris and opportunities to participate in playing a part in conserving the flora and fauna of Wolgan Valley, if you so wish. There are a plethora of additional activities* that can be arranged by the resort (at an additional charge), such as fly-fishing, photography expeditions, painting instruction, guided walks, regional food and wine tours, guided mountain-biking trips and 4x4 tours to explore the Blue Mountains. For a very special, unique experience, do reserve your place on the Guided Glow Worm Walk, which covers the topics of nature and history. Walk through rainforest en route to an old town which was more or less abandoned by 1930. Travel along the Old Coach Road and head into the disused railway tunnel to be met by millions of fireflies (glow worms) illuminating its dark recesses - a spectacular sight.
If you prefer to chill out back at the lodge, there are a number of spaces at the resort that are conducive to doing just that. Relax by the pool, curl up by the fire with a glass of red wine, a platter of cheeses from the resort's cheese room and the latest bestseller in hand, or enjoy a treatment at the resort's Timeless Spa.
*Two selected on-site activities (per night stay) are included in the rate. Guests can choose from the signature Wolgan Wildlife Drive, Nocturnal Drive, Aboriginal interpretive tours, Colonial tours, nature walks, and horse-riding experiences.
