The Weekly Covet: A Secluded Villa Nestled Remotely in the Blue Mountains of Australia

The sole Wolgan Villa at the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley offers a tranquil escape from the world.

Adventures and plush accommodations await guests at the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, set against a dramatic backdrop of unspoiled wilderness, waterfalls, and scenic cliffs of the Blue Mountains in Australia. On this private wildlife reserve, guests can embark on an ultra-luxe escape in their own lofty villas, where they can experience the wonders of nature at its fullest.

The One&Only Wolgan Valley is located two-and-a-half hours away from Sydney.

The 7,000-acre conservation retreat is situated between two stunning national parks—the Wollemi National Park and the Gardens of Stone National Park. It also sits on the Greater Blue Mountains province, which is listed as a World Heritage region. If you don’t find a scenic drive appealing, there’s also the option of a helicopter drop-off.

Of its 40 free-standing villas, there is only one three-bedroom Wolgan Villa, the most lavish of them all.

More a lodge than a villa, the 410-square-meter property features panoramic views of the Wolgan Valley.

The bathrooms come equipped with a skylight shower, bath, and double vanity.

The separate walk-in closet is another welcome feature.

The more than spacious living area includes a double-sided fireplace.

There’s also a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen.

Every villa comes with its own private pool and expansive verandas.

Guests of One&Only Wolgan Valley can encounter the outdoors via horseback ride.

Explore the neighboring hills and creeks on a trusty steed.

Families or adventure-seekers mustn’t pass on the opportunity of going on a wildlife safari or a nocturnal tour.

There’s an abundance of flora and fauna to be discovered outside the villa walls.


For every weekend of the month of July, you can catch the Yulefest celebration.

This time of the year in the Blue Mountains tides in all the magic of wintertime and the merriments that come with it. Gather around a warm fire and partake in a traditional Christmas feast or a cheese and wine tasting prepared by the resort.
