Earlier this year I surprised Hubby with a trip to Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa – the first resort Emirates (as in the airline) has built outside of Dubai. Hubby and I were celebrating five years of marriage and ten years of togetherness so I wanted to stay somewhere fancy and a bit posh!
Working in the tourism industry has its perks sometimes so off we went for a two night stay at this five star resort. A leisurely three hour drive from Sydney (or 3 weeks on your skateboard) and we arrived at our destination.
OMG! This place is seriously swanky. There are 40 individual villas scattered over 4,000 acres of wildlife rich land. After being escorted to our villa, we open the door to one of the most beautifully decorated room I’ve ever seen; plush rugs, leather reading chair, vintage chess board, bookcase galore and bi-fold doors leading to our very own lap pool. The villa’s timeless style and elegance automatically transforms you into a princess!
This leads me to the bed – the softest bed I’VE EVER SLEPT ON. (I can easily understand why rich peeps would buy it as a souvenir upon checking out of the resort). The four poster bed overlooks the doubled sided sandstone fireplace and to the side are the most magnificent valley views.
The dressing room? I’m going to replicate the walk in robe into my future dream home one day. It’s AH-MAZ-ING!
The bathroom you ask? Shut the front door!!! Twin vanities, separate shower and bath, and indulgent Babor bathroom products to rub on your body!
The meals are inclusive in the room rate and we were treated to breakfast in the Wolgan Dining Room and 5 course dinners next to the fireplace. A light lunch was served in the Country Kitchen each day. Shiraz never tasted so good!
Did I mention the Cheese Room? This was hubby’s favorite after dinner activity. A wine and cheese specialist is available after dinner to assist you in choosing a suitable tasting platter and wine selection to enjoy by the fireplace.
And…… last but not least, a princess on her bike!
