Sequoia Lodge Adelaide Hills is an intimate retreat located on the side of Mount Lofty, above the world-famous wine region of Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.
This private retreat is part of the Mount Lofty Estate which means you can use all the facilities from the fine dining restaurant, day spa, cocktail lounge, and champagne bar.
A glass of local pinot noir can be sampled at Hardy’s Veranda restaurant named after its founder Arthur Hardy. As you overlook the valley below the experience promises to take you on “the best culinary journeys of your life”. You can enjoy a seasonally changing menu, following the ‘valley to veranda’ concept – one of the reasons it now ranks among the top 10 restaurants in Australia.
During your stay at Sequoia Lodge Adelaide Hills you can walk in the shadow of the great Californian Redwoods (sequoias) planted by Hardy more than 100 years ago. This adults-only property is the ultimate private sanctuary for those seeking peace and tranquillity. During your stay relax in spring-fed hot pools, connect with nature, and listen to authentic dreamtime stories.
Choose to stay in one of Sequoia’s open-plan suites which have breath-taking views of the valley which is not only home to four world-class wine regions but also the largest surviving koala population. Enjoy this vista from the daybed on your spacious balcony and at night you can cosy up in front of the gas fireplace after taking a wellness shower.
As the estate is connected to the local ancient natural spring waters that run deep down in the mountain this water feeds every tap. You can also bathe in the artesian spring-fed hot pool or infinity pool overlooking on the valley rim.
Join a guided tour of the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, visit the Cleeland Koala Experience, and round off your day gazing at the clear night sky through Sequoia’s telescope.
