A Time to Learn…

May 26, 2020 Hotel News No Comments

Despite the shock of our global sudden ‘stop’, one of the silver linings for many, has been the change of pace of work life, providing an opportunity to do the things that have been on the list forever “but I have been too busy”.Many of our trusted trade and media partners are talking about the luxury of time and headspace to learn while in lockdown!

In response to this, we have updated our assets, media and training materials to share with you.

Luxury Lodges of Australia is a trusted central source of information: from practical information on where and what the lodges are, but especially what guests will do there (some 250+ experiences); what really is Australia’s unique style of experiential luxury; and show why the lodges will seduce, inspire and nurture guests.

While there is still so much uncertainty across many parts of the world, in Australia, we are seeing the first signs that we will be able to return to work, to interact, to travel, and for the lodges, to do what they do so well, look after guests. In short, bookings are open for most lodges.

Lodge Reopening Plans

This link is a central point of reference for dates as the lodges plan to reopen to receive guests.
The process of reopening will happen over a period of time, from as early as June 2020, but for some, several months down the track, due to seasonal and air access complexity.

But bookings are up and running now
