Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort, Blue Mountains
Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa is the first Australian project for Emirates and the first outside of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located adjacent to the greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa is a world-class conservation-based resort bordered by two National Parks. Inspired by the acclaimed Dubai-based Al Maha Resort and Spa. Spread out at the foot of towering sandstone cliffs, the Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa occupies just two per cent of the 4,000 acres it sits in, so the feeling of space and serenity is omnipresent.
“The combination of the quintessential Australian location, the application of ecological and sustainable guidelines, the opportunity for our guests to participate in wildlife spotting, stargazing, 4WD tours and mountain biking, plus the highest level accommodation is unique.” Joost Heymeijer - General Manager
Whilst international guests expect this high level, the high-end Australian city market will be delighted when they discover Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa as a hideaway or weekend retreat and a venue for corporate training and weddings.
