There is a room with a view, and then
there is a luxury chalet snuggled in the
snowfields of the Thredbo Valley.
If you told anyone you are heading here
for a holiday, no doubt they would turn
green with envy. If you are looking for a
destination where things are not done by
halves -- especially when it comes to spoiling
those who visit -- Lake Crackenback Resort
cannot be surpassed.
Why not try this on for size? Picture-
perfect mountain views, four-and-a-half
star chalets complete with open fireplaces
and enormous spa baths with impressive
views to the surrounding alpine wilderness.
The mountain view chalets are privy to
tremendous mountain vistas; as well as
quality furnishings, spacious interiors and
classic features to keep you snug during the
With an unspoiled grace and charm, this
ultimate indulgence feels a world away but is
surprisingly only two hours from Canberra.
The natural beauty of the area first
captured the attention of a pioneer to the
Snowy Mountains, Nugget Pendergast,
who made his home only metres up-stream
to where the resort currently sits. Pendergast
claimed his grandfather was the man from
Snowy River, and became a local legend and
a recluse who simply relished in the beauty
of the Snowy Mountains and Bullocks Flat
area, now known as Lake Crackenback.
And why wouldn't he make this stunning
area his abode?
Upon entering the area, one cannot help
but release all tension while inhaling the
crisp alpine air. Sorry bustling city life, I'll be
living here from now on.
This glorious escape positively embraces
winter and is designed to soothe the
soul with a long list of stress-relieving,
rejuvenating and downright deluxe activities
and services at hand.
The day spa is one of many such
delights, offering an assortment of dreamy
treatments and massages. Surrounded by
the beauty of the wilderness, The Spa at
Lake Crackenback encourages total luxury
through natural purity. You will no doubt
have a difficult time deciding on how best to
nurture your mind and body with an array of
packages and treatments, including the top
of the line Royal 24-carot gold facial.
Gold is the most powerful anti-aging
component known, and the regenerative
properties of the 24-carot gold infused
products in this deluxe facial will result
in your skin feeling smooth, supple and
superbly moisturised. Your experienced
therapist will lavish your skin, and make you
feel like royalty.
Once you have reached total relaxation,
it's time to treat your tummy to a selection
of scrumptious delights at the waterfront
Cuisine Bar and Restaurant.
Start the day off with a buffet breakfast
fit for a queen as you sit enjoying the lake's
glimmering reflection through the floor-to-
ceiling windows. Wake up to a fresh start
