Under the watchful eye of the large 175-year-old Sequoia tree from which its name is derived, Sequoia Lodge at Mount Lofty House is more than just a restful escape from the outside world, it’s an entire bucket list experience.
Sitting high in the Adelaide Hills, with unrivalled views of the Piccadilly Valley, the luxury accommodation offers a sense of tranquillity so profound that you’ll begin to lose yourself from the moment you step through the large wooden door and enter the private compound that is Sequoia.
Opening in the Autumn of last year, the 14-suite compound has quickly become Australia’s best luxury lodge and has recently been awarded SA’s Best Luxury Accommodation by the Australian Hotels Association and SA’s Best New Tourism Business at last month’s Tourism Awards 2022.
With more and more travellers choosing a stay-cation option over international travel due to the climate of the times, Adelaideans flocked to the Hills to experience a level of opulence usually reserved for celebrities, now found in their own backyard.
Surrounded by natural artesian spring-fed hot pools and with access to the onsite Gatekeepers Day Spa, Sequoia Lodge, relaxation is at the epitome of every stay at Sequoia and as we step into the busy summer season, a stay at the luxury lodge could be just what is needed to stop and savour the welcome sunshine filled days.
The team at Sequoia have recognised this collective yearning among us and so to accommodate, the Sequoia team has introduced their new all-inclusive package, with three nights for the price of two .
A three night escape to Sequoia could be all you need to feel refreshed and rejuvenated with the beauty of the Hills in summer enough to instantly wash away a busy 2022 and launch a beautiful start to 2023.
Each booking includes breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, including the Estate’s award winning Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, cheese and wine experiences, inclusive access to Sequoia’s selected wine, spirits and cocktail list, a hot pools experience, a guided nature walk through the surrounding conservation park and the chance to see the stars through the lens of the onsite telescope – a vision that once seen, will stay with you for years to come.
When it comes to dining options throughout your stay, you’re spoilt for choice. Mount Lofty Estate is home to the award-winning Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant – a must for any foodie, the glass fronted Sequoia Lounge, and the newest addition of an a la carte restaurant in the form of Martha Hardy’s Kitchen, all with new spring menus consisting of fresh seasonal local produce.
While you may be swept away by the grandeur and indulgence of Sequoia, it’s the attention to detail and bespoke services that make it a cut above the rest. From the Dyson hair dryer and Jurlique bath products to the handmade cookies available in the lodge, every aspect of the Sequoia experience has been designed to ensure guests need not worry about a thing and practice what it means to truly live in the moment.
Just 15 minutes from the city, an escape to Sequoia Lodge is more accessible than you may think and with Spring in the air, there is no better time to treat yourself to an experience you will never forget.
Sequoia has just released a new, all-inclusive package offering a third night for free on any two night booking, so you can get the full experience of the lodge.
Each booking also comes with a $50 spa credit for each person as well as daily a la carte breakfast and lunch.
