A new 20-villa luxury lodge and wellness centre is being built at The Lane Vineyard and we couldn’t be more excited. Set to open in 2023, the lodge will undoubtedly become an iconic travel destination for the Adelaide Hills and South Australia.
The Hahndorf-based luxury lodge has been designed to encourage visitors to “Linger Longer” and stay overnight in a region that has traditionally hosted day travellers.
The project has been in development for more than 24 months, ensuring the final design and guest experience complement the current offering of The Lane Vineyard and accommodation demand for the Adelaide Hills.
Hahndorf is one of the most popular day trip destinations in South Australia. Luxury Lodge Group, the SA developers of the project, intends to capture a highly motivated traveller and have them spend more time in the region.
“Working closely with the innovative and passionate team at The Lane to design a holistic extension of their current high-end offering has been integral to our process,” said Project spokesperson and Director of Hotellerie Consultancy, Sonia Lefevre.
“We are thrilled to be bringing this landmark luxury accommodation and wellness destination to one of the most stunning wine regions in the world.”
The accommodation villas have been consciously designed to nestle within the southwestern corner of the site, providing views that embody the magical tapestry of the Adelaide Hills.
“Sustainability has been a key driver since the project’s inception,” said Development designer and Director of Intro Architecture, Damien Ellis.
“The objective of the construction methodology and servicing and operation of the development, is to deliver a luxurious accommodation experience, which is enhanced through the adoption of contemporary environmentally sustainable design.”
Surrounded by highly prized vineyards just 3 kilometres from the historic village of Hahndorf and a scenic 25-minute drive from the Adelaide CBD, The Lane is home to an acclaimed contemporary restaurant and tasting room with uninterrupted views over the estate.
Offering bespoke personal tastings, food-matched wine flights and a unique Provenance dining menu – guests can immerse themselves in a host of sensory food and wine experiences nestled amongst the vineyards and ancient gum trees of the estate, all of which is just a leisurely stroll for guests staying at the lodge.
“The Lane has been the iconic Adelaide Hills destination for those seeking the ultimate in winery experiences for almost two decades, from our breath-taking estate views, award winning wines and world class restaurant,” said The Lane Vineyard CEO Jared Stringer.
“We could think of nothing better to complement our bespoke offering than providing our guests the ultimate in luxury accommodation, right here, in the heart of our Hahndorf estate.”
Guests staying at the Lane Lodge will be offered an array of unique experiences including bushwalking, winemaker masterclasses, wine blending, cooking classes, trout fishing and helicopter tours.
The day spa will be designed and operated by a world class operator showcasing the latest holistic experiences founded on specialised rituals and curated treatment plans to seamlessly restore mind and body.
