Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa | NSW | Australia


Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa is a renowned haven of relaxation in the Blue Mountains, Australia. This five star Orient-Express hotel is housed in a historic country house set amidst two acres of manicured gardens.

A 2 hour drive from Sydney, the Country’s Gateway, Lilianfels Blue Mountains is regarded as an unforgettable experience and has quickly established a reputation as Australia’s finest boutique ‘getaway’.

Lilianfels sits adjacent to the Three Sisters which are located in the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains National Park. The Three Sisters symbolise the stature and pride of the Blue Mountains – towering escarpments, wide, deep blue-hazed valleys, incomparable views and impenetrable depths- they are awe-inspiring.

The historic home ‘Lilianfels’, built in 1889, has been transformed to its original splendour and now houses the award-winning restaurant, Darley’s named after the original owner. Set in two acres of English-style gardens, the adjoining 86 room Country House, opened in 1992, has been designed in line with the architecture of the heritage home, offering all the facilities and comforts of a world class retreat.


At Lilianfels, you can be yourself whilst enjoying all the creature comforts of an exclusive luxury retreat. From the crispest sheets and fluffiest towels to the individually decorated guest rooms, no detail has been overlooked.

Sink into an extra deep bath and luxuriate in a moisturising milk treatment. The marble bathrooms offer separate bath and shower, while each room features views over the English style gardens, or the majestic views of Echo Point’s vast mountains and plunging valleys.

Decorated in lush fabrics including organza and silk, the 85 boutique rooms are themed in lavish pink, green or lilac. The sumptuous floral designs bring the outdoors in, inviting you to curl up and wile away the hours.
