Summertime Stays At Solar Springs Retreat
We were all a little curious when it was announced Solar Springs Retreat, on the edge of Morton National Park in Bundanoon, would be undergoing a transformation of its very own in 2019, re-emerging as a boutique hotel.
Re-creating such a well-known and much loved venue was bound to be a long and intricate process, and while a few more T’s get crossed and some extra I’s are dotted, it seemed a shame that such a unique space sit idle for so long. So Solar Springs is being offered up as a group rental venue for short term stays in January and February with building works due to get underway in March.
So, if you're planning a family reunion, a corporate retreat, a 40th... this could be just what you were looking for. Have a read about some of the best things about staying at Solar Springs Retreat:
It’s a Southern Highlands institution
Solar Springs has been operating for over 35 years in The Highlands and is well-known locally and beyond for providing a haven for people wanting to take some time out from their busy lives to relax, rejuvenate, and nourish themselves. A place of healing and calm, Solar Springs Retreat has been an oasis of tranquillity for thousands of grateful guests.
You’re a three minute walk from the bustling village of Bundanoon
A beautiful country village full of character and friendly locals, fabulous cafes and quaint stores, Bundanoon’s main road is a stone’s throw away from Solar Springs. If you have a strong throwing arm on you, you could possibly hit the Bundanoon Hotel across the train tracks, currently undergoing a transformation of its own – pop in for some wood fired pizza and live music.
Accommodation solution for large groups attending destination events in The Highlands
It’s no secret the Southern Highlands is a destination event favourite – weddings, special occasions, engagement parties, hen’s parties, big birthday celebrations, reunions. It’s the perfect place to gather thanks to its proximity to Canberra and Sydney. Solar Springs Retreat can house large groups from 20 – 48 for a short term stay. From $105 per person per night, guests can use the amazing facilities including the indoor pool, steam room, sauna and spa….hellloooo! There is also a fully equipped gym or if you fancy getting bendy, the yoga classroom. You can access the kitchen, a large dining room seats up to 50 and there are three lounges for relaxing, reading or shooting the breeze with your pals.
It's super easy to get your fix of nature
Solar Springs Retreat is on the edge of Morton National Park, a wonderful natural space known for it’s breathtaking views and bushwalks. If you like to get back to nature on two wheels, the Wingello State Forest with some fab mountain biking tracks is a 10 minute drive away. Or if your idea of getting back to nature involves hitting some balls around a fairway with a stick, the Sylvan Glen Golf Course in Wingello is not too far away. And of course the gardens of Solar Springs are a delight to wander around at any time of the year - so peaceful and tranquil.
