For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Curate a bespoke private adventure at these ‘next level’ Australian escapes

Abercrombie & Kent’s incredible new luxury Australia travel packages allow you to have it all.

At a time when exclusivity, privacy, seclusion and space are arguably travel’s greatest luxuries, Abercrombie & Kent has put together a portfolio of next-level luxury Australia travel adventures.

Yes, the accommodation is always off the charts. But what takes these stays to new heights are the unimaginable add-ons that are only achievable thanks to Abercrombie & Kent’s little black book of connections. And decades of experience crafting bespoke itineraries.

Private chefs, bucket-list destinations, helicopter tours and fine dining all feature. Rather than determining a strict schedule, these luxury Australia travel packages allow you to pick and mix your own exquisite adventure.

These are the luxury hideaways on A&K’s Exclusive Stays list.

Next-level luxury Australia travel

Small luxury hotels such as Emirates Wolgan Valley and One Ki Kangaroo Island feature heavily as do private villas in destinations such as Port Douglas and Smiths Beach WA.

Abercrombie & Kent PR & Communications Manager, Serena Mitchell said the experiences included in the Exclusive Stays packages were just as exquisite as the accommodation.

“Customisation is the essence of luxury,” Mitchell said. “With A&K’s exclusive stays, it’s easier than ever to create your own private holiday bubble.

“You choose the exclusive villa, and we take care of the rest. That might be a meal prepared by a hatted chef. Perhaps a helicopter tour to forage for your lunch.

“Or even a string quartet brought in to serenade you as the sun sets.”

Southern calling: Luxury accommodation South Australia

Kangaroo Island accommodation always offers a distinct sense of place, framing this postcard-perfect paradise off the South Australian Coast. Case in point, ONE KI. This far-flung eco-retreat offers you sand the moment you step out your front door. And your footprints will likely be the only ones.

At ONE Ki you will have the view, the water and the waves to enjoy in seclusion. Well, with nine of your closest friends and family members, and perhaps a private chef and sommelier. Snorkel with dolphins and eagle rays, gaze at the bedazzlement of the Milky Way. Then sip bespoke cocktails made with the island’s own KI Spirits and Ligurian honey.

And then there’s day two: chauffeur to meet sea lions, anyone?

No expense spared: Luxury accommodation NSW

From NSW to WA and SA, this country has its fair share of blissful villas and retreats. Perhaps none quite as dreamy as Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, surrounded by World Heritage wilderness in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney. Each of the 40 one- to three-bedroom villas here comes with a private pool and fireplace. And quite possibly the best beds you will ever sleep in.

Chef James Viles (ex-three-hatted Biota in Bowral) prepares dishes almost too pretty to eat. Wolgan Valley has formal dining rooms in which to enjoy multi-course meals. But we recommend calling on Abercrombie & Kent to organise a horse ride through national parkland followed by a gourmet picnic with bottles of Krug champagne. Or the resort’s own gin…

And then there’s the award-winning spa. As a result, you won’t want to leave. We don’t blame you,

West coast wonders: Luxury accommodation WA

The Margaret River region of Western Australia deserves its reputation as one of the world’s greatest wine destinations. It’s made even better when you can enjoy behind-the-scenes tastings with winemakers and gourmet picnic hampers during the day. And then in the evening, be lulled to sleep by Indian Ocean waves from the comfort of Smiths Beach Resort.

The intimate retreat with one- to four-room villas is all about pared-back luxury, designed to bring the outdoors in: the sand dunes, fiery WA sunsets and dramatic scenery of  Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The only time you’ll see another person is in the pool or applauded restaurant. How does Shark Bay whiting or Abrolhos Island scallops sound?
