Whether you’re a millennial seeking a bespoke travel experience or a Chinese tourist looking to immerse yourself in an authentic local lifestyle, we are all spending less on material things and more on participation.
Taronga Zoo has just developed one of the world’s leading attractions to meet the increasing appetite for authentic experiences with the opening of the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga.
This new offering demonstrates a committed organisation who “walks the talk” by developing a unique hospitality experience that wows the guest while truly supporting its own environmental and sustainability values.
Guests who come to a stay a night at the retreat will leave with greater respect for nature and the environment. However, this won’t come at the expense of substandard hospitality experience. There is very little to fault, with well-designed spaces that have valued detail in the design that echos the natural location. The menu has been developed with sustainable sourcing in mind and restaurants are only accessible to in-house guests at this stage.
Rooms are packaged with a sanctuary tour, dinner at Me-Gal restaurant, a daybreak walk, buffet breakfast, morning tour and complimentary access to Taronga Zoo Sydney. This complete package ensures guests receive the full treatment.
The rooms are well designed, with most taking advantage of those unbeatable views of Sydney Habour. Many services and amenities in the room have been developed with sustainability in mind, with design elements mimicking nature and bush-like themes.
Within the hotel grounds, there are several animal enclosures that guests have exclusive access to, which are also part of the zoo night tour. The educational walks and tours compliment your stay and let you sample unique experiences.
The real success here is how an organisation has been able to keep a focus on the core details of design, food quality and service while supporting a solid education and conservation agenda. This is truly quality experience.
However, there are only 68 rooms so get in quick here before the masses catch on!
