Autumn Culinary Retreat Package at Australia's Luxe Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa
Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, an Emirates property and Australia's first luxury conservation-based resort, is celebrating autumn in Australia with the "Autumn Retreat" package for gourmet aficionados.
A member of The Leading Small Hotels of the World, the luxe resort is located within its own 4,000 acre conservation reserve nestled between two national parks. This secluded refuge features 40 individual suites surrounded by private decks, each with its own indoor/outdoor swimming pool. The resort's architecture is designed to be reminiscent of traditional rural Australian homesteads.
The Autumn Retreat package includes an on-site cooking demonstration by a Wolgan Valley chef featuring fresh autumnal produce from the resort's kitchen garden and local suppliers, showcasing uniquely Australian cuisine enhanced by a seasonal, regional and organic food philosophy.
Available now through June 30, 2011 (except Easter weekend), the Autumn Retreat includes two nights' accommodation in one of the resort's luxurious Heritage Suites; gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily; all non-alcoholic and select alcoholic beverages with lunch and dinner; wireless Internet and two outdoor activities per person, per day. Packages start from approximately $1,380 per person based on double occupancy.
Nestled on the edge of the Blue Mountains, a region which has established itself as a "foodie" hotspot, the resort sources quality ingredients and fresh produce daily, courtesy of the surrounding local merchants. Guests can sample products from award-winning vineyards, boutique meat and dairy producers, and a wide range of orchards and herb farms.
