This secluded oasis is one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Most Extraordinary places to stay, and for good reason. Located in the beautiful landscapes of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, 203 miles from the capital Hobart, each rustic cabin is surrounded by verdant forests, soaring mountain ranges and sparkling lakes, only adding to the resort’s charm.
You’ll be sure to marvel at the scenes around you as you slowly wander along the wooden boardwalks from your cabin to the main lodge, spotting curious wildlife on the way. The main lodge is delightful, and home to sumptuous restaurants and cosy bars, all fit with welcoming log fires and excellent Tasmanian fare. As for the cabins, they’re certainly charming, offering homely furniture and lovely views of the National Park.
We love the Waldheim Alpine Spa, which offers a unique spa experience for its guests. The holistic treatments are influenced by its naturally beautiful surroundings, offering the perfect backdrop as you revitalise and relax with a massage or facial. The Sanctuary is truly spectacular, with unbeatable views of forest and lakes from the steam room, hot tub and plunge pool. You’ll be sure to feel like royalty here.
Nestled right on the edge of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this beautiful lodge’s location offers breath-taking walking trails, amazing birds, plants and alpine forests, and a truly tranquil ambience. Hikers will love the trails leading through forests and mountain ranges, whilst an exploration to Dove Lake offers unforgettable views.
