Elysia Health Retreat

Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia

data, awards, description

Elysia Health Retreat is a world-class resort curving around a natural hilltop site, in perfect balance with its magnificent setting.

Ever-changing views Against its rugged Hunter Valley backdrop, Elysia nestles into the natural curve of a hill, enjoying beautiful views of the Brokenback Mountain Range. Following the changing light of the day, the villas’ panorama of mountains, vineyards and farmlands continually changes.

Inspired by the villages of Asia Treatment rooms face the hill to create a sense of community reminiscent of Asian villages. Merging with the land rather than imposing a new form, the resort village respects the landscape on which it sits.

Luxury spa facilities Elysia houses tennis courts, a gymnasium, pools, a sauna and spa, yoga and pilates studios, physiotherapy and treatment rooms, a restaurant, boutique and theatrette. An example of truly striking leisure architecture, the 74 villas and lodges, as well as the resort’s facilities, are finished to the highest standards of quality and comfort.
