Located right on the edge of the Jamison Valley in the Blue Mountains town of Leura, the Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains is a luxury hotel which is perfectly situated and equipped as an ideal romantic getaway. With oversized rooms and suites, and packed with facilities, the Fairmont underwent a major renovation in 2012 emerging as one of the region’s best hotel resorts in a setting of dramatic canyons and valleys, sheer escarpments and lush rainforests.

The Accommodation:

There are 222 rooms at the Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains, and each one has a view of one kind or another. The accommodations on the southern side look out over the spectacular Jamison Valley while the rooms on the northern side of the resort face the forest around Leura and the adjoining Leura Golf Club. There is an impressive lineup of different categories of accommodation ranging from Standard Rooms which come with a king bed, two singles or two queens and are located on levels one or two, all the way up to a collection of suites, some of which were added in June 2015. The Dalai Lama Suite is one, with two balconies overlooking the resort grounds and the Jamison Valley, and featuring an expansive lounge room with a gas fireplace, and a large bedroom. There are also Pet Rooms with a king bed for you, and a pet bed for your furry friend, located on the ground floor.

Where We Stayed:

Our home for the night was a Deluxe Room; they occupy the top floor of the resort, and have a private balcony from which to enjoy the views, or a luxury spa bath in which to wallow after a day exploring the mountains. The room was spacious at 45 square metres in size, and design features included high chalet ceilings, light hardwood and a colour palette of red, brown and beige. Besides a king sized bed, a large easy chair with a foot stool and a desk, amenities included an LCD TV with Foxtel, a mini bar with tea and coffee making facilities, and luxury Appelles bathroom products.

What Else Is There:

The Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains has four main venues including Jamison’s Restaurant which is a buffet style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eucalypt is a fine dining restaurant serving modern Australian cuisine, while the Sublime Lounge serves light refreshments of coffee, tea and cake along with an indulgent high tea on the weekends, and also serves tapas in the evening with an extensive local and international champagne and wine list.
