Sequoia Lodge

Reconnect and Discover at Sequoia

Sequoia Lodge

Stay, revive and rejuvenate at Sequoia.

Escape to the Hills for a boutique two-night wellness retreat at the luxurious Sequoia Lodge.

With an itinerary of uniquely curated wellness experiences, this is an experience to truly restore.

Nestled into the side of Mount Lofty, surrounded by pristine nature and abundant wildlife, is the sophisticated adult-only Sequoia Lodge.

With deep soaking tubs, sunken lounges and an expansive deck looking out over spectacular views, Sequoia is the intersection between nature and luxury.

Offering an unparalleled journey of discovery centred on the region’s iconic food and wine, wellness, history and landscape, Sequoia connects guests to the story, nature, characters and produce of our region by opening doors to experiences that others can’t.

In this wellness retreat developed exclusively for Wellness Wander, you are invited to be nurtured by nature over three days. The package includes two nights accommodation with daily breakfast, access to nature and curated wellness experiences.

Retreat Itinerary

Your journey of connection and discovery begins as you pass through the Sequoia gate. Notice how time slows as you enter and how your focus changes as you gaze over the uninterrupted view of the Piccadilly Valley.

Upon arrival, you will begin by relaxing in an artesian spring-fed hot pool to rejuvenate your body and mind and soak in the benefits of naturally flowing spring water. Afterwards, gather on the valley rim at sunset for our lodge welcome where you are introduced to the fascinating stories of our region — from South Australia’s local icons to the boutique and extraordinary.

The following morning take part in morning yoga, a transformative pathway to a stronger body and calmer mind. This session is a bespoke experience of movement designed for beginners and advanced yogis alike that will allow you to take a break from the everyday stresses of life, connect with your surroundings and tune in to the sounds of wildlife around you.

Then join us on a 90-minute guided nature walk and trek along the renowned Heysen Trail. Stroll through Cleland Conservation Park amongst South Australian blue gums, local flora and fauna, and even koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, cockatoos and kookaburras.

You will then be organised a fresh and vibrant vegan picnic in the botanic gardens.

Leave the weight of daily life behind in the afternoon as you retreat into the historic walls of Gatekeeper’s Day Spa. You will be treated to a holistic 90-minute spa treatment that offers relaxing rituals, rejuvenation and gentle beauty treatment that honours your body’s individual needs and acknowledges where you are in your life’s journey.

Enjoy dinner at your leisure in our 3 hat Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, at Sequoia Lodge or in “Marthas Hardys Kitchen”. Before going to bed, enjoy our special tea, created to help you enjoy a wonderful rest.

After a blissful night’s sleep, your discovery journey will conclude with a second session in the spring-fed hot pools.

Truly unwind while discovering the South Australia you never knew existed
