Full accommodation information

Located less than 20 minutes from the bright city lights of Adelaide, Sequoia Lodge offers an intimate holiday that’s far removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This adult-only hotel combines curated experiences with individually designed programmes to create a truly unique escape. With a focus on wellness and nature, it’s ideal for those looking for a private sanctuary.

Although designed for complete and utter relaxation, the lodge has quick access to the city should you want to explore the local nightlife following a day of head-to-toe pampering. Not only that, but there are five distinct wine regions in the nearby vicinity – including Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Southern Australia is blessed with world-class wine, so plan to spend an afternoon sampling the best flavours the country has to offer.

During the evening, indulge in a four-course meal at Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant – a 3 Chef Hat-awarded establishment renowned for its multi-award-winning wine selection. Located at Mount Lofty House, you’ll enjoy private dining with a panoramic view of the gorgeous Piccadilly Valley.

For more breathtaking views, return to your Sequoia Suite and marvel at the lush greenery surrounding the lodge while immersed in your sunken lounge, bedroom and bathroom. Then unwind, relax and get comfortable at the Gatekeepers Spa. Whether it be the Signature Spa Ritual, Indulgence Experience or Sensory Spa Escape, you’ll be treated to a holistic, rejuvenating journey from start to finish.

Included with your stay are a range of complimentary Signature Experiences. Gather at sunset to learn about the Sequoia story or become one with your inner self during private yoga sessions. To complete your dream vacation, add a private off-site tour to the mix. Meet Australia’s native koalas at Cleland Wildlife Park or coast around Adelaide Hills in style with a luxury driving experience.

On top of this, you also have access to the amenities of Sequoia Lodge’s sister property Mount Lofty House and 30-acre Mount Lofty Estate – adding to the benefits of this already luxurious experience.


As the hotel curates unique experiences for adults over the age of 18 only, you can expect everything during your stay to be tailored perfectly to your liking. There are tours around the five wine regions, immersive driving experiences of Adelaide Hills and luxury fine dining to whet your appetite. As such, it is situated away from busy city life in order to provide a true private escape.

Gourmet Getaways and Wineries

An evening of fine dining at Hardy's Verandah Restaurant completes a dream day full of indulgence. The seasonally changing menu includes four and seven-course meals with delightful dishes for the perfect Gourmet Getaway. Then, spend the next day travelling to Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley wine regions for an incredible wine tasting tour.


Ready to tie the knot and enjoy married life to the fullest? Then start it off right with a romantic trip to sunny Adelaide where you’ll celebrate your love on an unforgettable travel experience. Adelaide Hills provides a picture-perfect backdrop for you to unwind and relax in with your significant other. It’s a much-needed luxury break of intimacy and connection every couple deserves to experience.

Any stay at Sequoia Lodge is incomplete without its amazing activities. On one day, you could be exploring the Heysen Trail from Mount Lofty Botanic Garden to The Big Rocking Horse and back. Then, on the next, you may find yourself immersed in the Mount Lofty House Cellar where you’ll discover South Australia’s most iconic wines.

In the evenings, you can gaze up at the night sky and locate unique constellations using Sequoia’s private telescope. Learn about the Sequoia story at sunset during a lodge welcome, focus on your core during morning yoga for a well-being boost and sample the region’s delicious artisan food. Then, for a relaxing end to the day, take a dip in the artesian hot pool overlooking the valley beyond.

Beyond the hotel, you can go on a private behind the scenes tour of R.M. Williams’ workshop. Here, you’ll learn the intriguing process each pair of RM’s handcrafted leather boots go through. Cleland Wildlife Park offer their incredibly in-depth and enjoyable koala experience while Barossa Valley is home to some of South Australia’s finest wines – which you can sample during a day tour.
