At the foot of Mount Wolgan, in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains and surrounded by national parks, this resort looks down a valley of rippling grasslands, bounding with quizzical kangaroos, bordered by towering escarpments, and illuminated every evening by spectacular sunsets. Now consider this: it’s also the first carbon-neutral hotel in the world, devoted to delivering luxury to its guests at no cost to the environment. Forty freestanding suites, each with its own private pool, blend beautifully with the landscape; and the homestead, all timber and stunning artworks, incorporates magnificent kitchens, to cater to discerning palates. We’ve got to say, this is one to watch and is only going to get better. More info: Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort
