Australia’s most luxurious ski lodge opens this season
Boutique ski lodge, Astra Lodge has unveiled its fresh and luxurious new look at Falls Creek Victoria.
Setting a new standard in the Australian ski industry, the newly renovated ski-in ski-out lodge recently took out the title of Australia’s Best Boutique Ski Lodge 2016 at the World Ski Awards in Kitzbьhel, Austria.
Located in the heart of Falls Creek Village, just a short, private over-snow ride away from village parking, the family-owned lodge boasts a fine dining Italian restaurant with premium wine cellar, heated magnesium mineral pool, a new state-of-the-art ski and boot drying room, panoramic mountain views, and stylish interiors featuring natural materials such as locally sourced leather, timber and stone, reflecting a European alpine look.
Rooms are luxuriously furnished with furnishings that have been hand-sourced from around the world, and are complete with stunning alpine views.
There is also a day spa, tending to weary skiers with a range of massages, physiotherapy treatments, and wet and dry saunas. Gentlemen guests will especially enjoy relaxing with a dram of whisky, or a hot towel shave, while ladies will be pampered with fresh blow dries as they sip on a glass of champagne.
Charming and intimate, the lodge has maintained its cosy, family-friendly environment, whilst also offering world-class service and a personalised experience delivered by thoughtful and friendly staff.
“We love to see all guests relaxed and comfortable, we take customer service very seriously, beginning before they even arrive, and it’s our privilege to have such a beautiful venue to host our guests within,” Astra Lodge general manager Tom Simpson says.
The team also includes hatted chef Emma Handley, who ensures the restaurant focuses on the best locally sourced and seasonal produce with pasta made in-house daily, and world-renowned Skimetric director Adalbert Leibetseder, who offers a personalised ski program and boot fittings exclusively at Astra Lodge during the Australian ski season.
Astra Lodge will open 10 June for the 2017 Australian ski season.
