The brand new Sequoia Lodge will whisk you away to a place where luxury meets secluded nature.

There aren’t many places where you fall asleep to panoramic views of millions of stars in the sky and wake to a fiery sunrise over the Adelaide Hills, perched up above the clouds… bliss!

With each suite offering incredible views of the Mount Lofty Ranges, a cosy fireplace and relaxing bathtub, there are few reasons why you’d want to leave your room — until you hear about all of the experiences included in your stay, that is!

If you choose, you can spend a whole afternoon sipping the complimentary sparkling wine, enjoying a cheese platter with produce sourced from the surrounding local regions and catching glimpses of our Australian wildlife from the comfort of your private balcony.

There’s also an extensive range of onsite experiences that are included as part of your stay, and your personal host will help you plan your full Sequoia journey however you please.

If you want to take it slow, begin your day with a sunrise yoga session or relax with a yummy, freshly-squeezed juice or coffee in the private on-site hot pools overlooking the Piccadilly Valley. The artesian hot pools are fed by the mountain’s natural springs, which run beneath the grounds of Sequoia and are heated up to 40 degrees. Your host will help you book in a private time slot for this unforgettable experience — we loved it so much that we had a second booking arranged for the following morning, too!

If you feel like stretching your legs, you can join the morning guided nature walk along the Heysen Trail or go for a wander along the many trails that you can access directly from the lodge. We highly recommend following it up with a dip in the heated infinity pool afterwards!

When it comes to food and wine, you’re truly spoilt for choice. There are fine dining options on your doorstep at Hardy’s Verandah — we indulged in the seven-course degustation dinner and wine pairing menu and almost had to be rolled back to our room. Alternatively, you can venture out to one of the many nearby wineries or restaurants in the Adelaide Hills.

Treat yourself or a loved one — Sequoia is all kinds of special!
