The Denman Hotel & Spa, Thredbo's premier luxury boutique hotel, has launched the first all-inclusive luxury ski & spa package for this coming Thredbo ski season, valid from 11 June 2010.
Offering everything that skiing enthusiasts could want both on and off the mountain, this special two-night weekend escape features accommodation in king-bedded balcony rooms with views over the mountain, Saturday night gourmet dining in The Terrace Restaurant, with its reputation as Thredbo's finest, spa treatments in The Denman's Thalgo Day Spa, the only full day spa in Thredbo, as well as two-day Kosciuszko Thredbo lift tickets.
Ed Denny, the proprietor of The Denman Hotel & Spa, states: "With today's busy lifestyles the discerning traveller is looking for a quality, hassle-free experience. Our objective is to make it easy in organising their ultimate Australian ski weekend. Just book and head to the 'Snowys' for two full days of indulgence. We take care of nearly everything that guests will need".
The Denman Hotel & Spa has teamed up with Larry Adler, Australia's leading ski and outdoor equipment specialists, whereby guests select their desired ski equipment, such as Executive skis, boards, boots and even ski clothing, either online or at one of their stores in Sydney prior to departure, and it will all be awaiting their arrival at the Hotel.
What's more, there are further options to assist skiers in making the journey to Thredbo and the Snowy Mountains even easier. Optional add-ons with either Aeropelican or the Hyatt Hotel Canberra are available. For those that want to fly from Sydney Aeropelican commences air services from Sydney to Cooma this June. Alternatively The Denman guests can make it a luxury three-night long weekend, breaking their journey either to or from the Snow, and staying for a night at Canberra's most luxurious five-star hotel.
"Today's luxury traveller is looking for the personalised attention that only small properties like The Denman can offer", Ed Denny comments. "Our aim is to ensure that guest expectations are exceeded, not just met. This new package is recognition that there is a growing market of skiers seeking a totally indulgent weekend", says Ed. To this end, every guest who books this Snowy Mountains Luxury Ski & Spa Weekend Escape receives a bottle of ready chilled Vueve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne on arrival.
