The resort will offer 100 Chalets incorporating 300 rooms, offering luxury accommodation within a lake or Australian bush setting. A Wellness Centre with Mineral Bathing, Day Spa and indoor swimming pool, offers the ultimate in pampering and relaxation. Resort guests, as well as day visitors will be able to dine in the on site restaurant and cafe, which will showcase the region’s local produce and wines. Larger groups are catered for with a 400 person reception centre suitable for celebrations such as weddings, as well as business events and conferences.
