Hunter Valley: Escape and Pamper at Chateaux Élan
Situated within the prestigious grounds of The Vintage near Pokolbin, Chateaux Élan is an all-encompassing luxury resort in the heart of the Hunter Valley. Not only does this incredible oasis offer something for everyone, but with its understated elegance, super comfortable, private villas and tranquil setting within easy proximity to all the locality has to offer, it makes the perfect year-round base for a romantic or family holiday in the Hunter Valley. So much so that some clever visitors have made it a repeat holiday base and taken to renting a home on the grounds or even buying a parcel of land at The Vintage and building their own permanent bit of paradise.
The facilities are abundant but to cut a long story short, you cannot pass up a visit to the incredible The Spa at Chateaux Élan, which has some 20 treatment rooms with every pamper for him and her imaginable, including a Hydrolounge, Reflection Lounge, Detox Room, couples and spa suites, Vichy remedial rooms and specialised aromatherapy soak baths imported direct from Italy.
Our recommendations within the grounds:
For him – a round of golf on the state-of-the-art, 18-hole championship golf course designed by none other than the golfing legend Greg Norman.
For her – a Vichy Thermal Mineral Glow, Sea Mud Therapy treatment and facial using the beautiful Thalgo and Appelles skin care ranges.
For the littlies – they get the pick of play areas, a pool, tennis court and kids’ driving range in full view of kangaroos lazily grazing nearby.
After 5:00 pm you can join other families for lawn games, hit the bar for happy hour and live entertainment, kick back and enjoy dinner at The Legends Grill or grab a rug and enjoy a picnic for Movies Under the Stars on the Fairway Lawn.
