Karina and Brian Barry, the visionary owners of Bells at Killcare, are proud to introduce a new era of luxury nature escapes with the launch of The Lodges at Bells at Killcare.
Nestled within the serene coastal embrace of Bouddi National Park on the NSW Central Coast, these four exquisite lodges are destined to redefine the art of relaxation in harmony with nature.
Designed to seamlessly blend into the coastal angophora canopy, these tri-level lodges are situated in a place where five waterways converge, creating an ambience that rejuvenates the body, soul, and spirit.
On the ground level of each lodge, you’ll find two bedrooms beautifully integrated with the lush bushland surroundings, adorned in serene foliage tones and stone accents.
With underfloor heating, a rejuvenating indoor rain-shower and a freestanding bath, relaxation is paramount.
Step outside to your private pool, heated to a heavenly 24 degrees all year round, where you can unwind on a double daybed and refresh in your outdoor rain room.
A poolside barbecue and alfresco dining area provide the perfect connection to the natural bushland setting.
Moving to the second level, you’ll discover a well-appointed space for entertaining and relaxation. A fully equipped contemporary kitchen leads to an open-plan dining and living area with a large-screen television, a lavishly stocked bar and larder, and a fireplace for intimate evenings. This level opens onto a wraparound terrace, where you can watch majestic white-breasted sea eagles soar.
The third level, the Sunset Deck, offers sweeping views of Bouddi National Park, Broken Bay, Palm Beach, the Hawkesbury River and the distant city Sydney skyline.
This Mediterranean-style upper sundeck is the perfect place to indulge in your welcome cocktail.
Low-impact wilderness walks from your lodge will lead you through towering Eucalypt forests, past ancient rock formations along dramatic coastal boardwalks and down to hidden gems, like Maitland Bay and Putty Beach.
The seclusion you seek is made all the more effortless by having five-star resort facilities and concierge service readily at hand. Wander over to Bells’ renowned onsite restaurant, The Wild Flower Bar and Dining, featuring seasonal dishes inspired by the produce grown and harvested in the Bells kitchen gardens.
Menus showcase as many local NSW producers, suppliers, winemakers and growers as possible. Locally harvested seafood includes freshly shucked oysters and crayfish caught off nearby MacMasters Beach.
Sample from the restaurant’s excellent wine list, which has been named Best Regional Wine List several times over for its impressive cellar and collection of both local and international wines. The wine list has been awarded 3 wine glasses for the last 14 years, in the Australian Wine List Of The Year Awards.
To soothe your soul, guests of The Lodges may visit Bells Day Spa, right at your doorstep, where you can experience the restorative power of massage, facials and body treatment rituals combined with native flora botanicals.
At every moment, a stay at The Lodges, will connect you with the wild heart of nature, while enveloped in luxury and comfort, leaving with your spirit lifted.
Now open for bookings from 1 February 2024.
