SEQUOIA is an intimate luxury lodge, nestled in the highlands of the glorious Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Designed as a private sanctuary with many exclusive amenities and bespoke onsite and personalised offsite activities, SEQUOIA will take you by the hand, sweep you off your feet, and will do everything to make this the trip of your lifetime.
SEQUOIA’s open-plan suites boast panoramic valley views from the sunken lounge, bedroom, and bathroom. Each suite has a large balcony with an expansive daybed, a gas fireplace, a ceiling fan, a hidden TV, a large bathtub with views over the valley, and a wonderful wellness shower. The suites are fully automated offering different mood and time of day settings. Included in your stay are daily breakfast, the minibar, and nightly turndown service.
Part of SEQUOIA’s philosophy is to connect you with the land and its people through a range of intimate and curated onsite experiences that are included in your stay. As part of these daily and seasonally changing experiences listen to ancient dreamtime stories, savour and learn from artisan producers, enjoy a complimentary yoga session or join a guided tour of the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden. There are endless wonderful memories to be made.
SEQUOIA guests have exclusive use of the lodge’s lounge which features multiple fireplaces, comfortable sunken lounges, 180° views across the valley, and a panoramic sun deck. Within the lodge grounds, there are artesian spring-fed hot pools, an infinity pool and a wildlife enclosure. A tennis court and several walking trails can be accessed from the adjacent estate grounds.
The neighbouring Mount Lofty Estate is home to Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, one of Australia’s most acclaimed fine-dining restaurants. For a more casual setting, head to the repeatedly awarded Waterhouse Cocktail Lounge and Champagne Bar where you will be served the state’s finest wines, spirits, craft beers, cocktails, and a charcuterie platter with local delicatessen. And if you are after a little more privacy, choose from the delicious and hearty 24h in-room dining menu which can also be served at the lodge’s lounge.
Located in a beautiful, historical cottage, Gate Keeper’s Day Spa offers a wide range of relaxing, rejuvenating and energising treatments. The day spa is run in partnership with internationally acclaimed local beauty and skincare line Jurlique which grows some of its organic ingredients in the day spa’s cottage garden and the rest at their own farm only fifteen minutes away.
Whether you are visiting from within or from outside of Australia, SEQUOIA can arrange a lodge exclusive pick-up and drop-off shuttle from the Adelaide Airport and metropolitan area. All offsite experiences can also be booked as chauffeured packages, however, if you choose to bring your own car or hire one, SEQUOIA provides plenty of free onsite guest car parking.
SEQUOIA is a story of bespoke and heartfelt service, a tale of connection and resurgence. It includes chapters of great delight, indulgence, and excitement, but also peace and freedom. You may choose to just stay in, to experience all aspects of the lodge’s connection with its surrounds, and to enjoy one of its curated onsite experiences. Or maybe you decide to venture out, to take unbeaten tracks, do the things you only dreamt of doing and meet the people behind the scenes.
