December 2019 will see the first guests welcomed to the Adelaide Hills’ new ultra-luxury sister lodge, Sequoia, with Accor today releasing the first renderings inside the property.

Located in the Adelaide Hills adjacent to the award-winning Mount Lofty House, the $15 million, six-star lodge overlooks the Piccadilly Valley and will be managed by owner-operator business partners David Horbelt and Malcolm Bean.

Each of the 14 dual-level guest rooms will be 75 square metres in size and offer 180-degree views over the valley. A sunken lounge room will feature a stone-clad gas fireplace. Bathrooms will be highly spacious, with a rainfall shower, double vanities and premium amenities.

The property has been named after three giant Californian redwood trees planted by the original owner.

Guests will have access to a private club lounge, manicured gardens, sun deck and heated infinity swimming pool. The nearby three-hatted Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, Arthur Waterhouse Lounge and Stables Day Spa will also be open to guests of Sequoia.

A separate entrance to that utilised by Mount Lofty House guests has been added in an effort to appeal to VIP guests.

A variety of behind-the-scenes experiences not available to the general public have been put together for Sequoia guests, including private winery tours, encounters with local wildlife and exclusive access to premium local brands and attractions.
