As well as the 25% off savings, the resort is running a Memorable Moment competition, where people are invited to share their most treasured photo or story from time spent at Fairmont Resort MGallery over the past 25 years. The winner will receive a helicopter flight landing at the resort, flying over the wondrous Blue Mountains National Park, luxury overnight accommodation in a suite at the resort, dinner in Eucalypt restaurant, high tea for two in Sublime Lounge, breakfast, a Segway tour, a Spa Sublime treatment and luxury Blue Mountains Limousine transfers back to Sydney.
Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism chairman Randall Walker congratulated the Fairmont on the impressive milestone: “The Fairmont resort is our largest capacity accommodation asset for leisure and business guests and it has been a delight to watch it return to its rightful award-winning position under the ownership of Dr Jerry Schwartz and management by the Accor team.
“Congratulations also to Dr Schwartz for not only investing significantly in a $10 million refurbishment of the Fairmont but supporting many community initiatives.’’
“Therefore, I encourage Fairmont visitors past and present to celebrate the resort’s 25th birthday by sharing their treasured memories and returning to the resort to experience new and exciting developments there and throughout the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region.’’
The original Fairmont Resort was launched in 1988 and was the first major upscale hotel in the Blue Mountains. For almost two decades the resort was a favourite destination for luxurious holidays, family escapes, leading edge residential conferencing and destination weddings. A multi award-winning hotel with a peerless location overlooking the Jamison Valley, the Fairmont attracted guests from all over the world seeking refined accommodation in the heart of this World Heritage Area.
After completing a $10 million refurbishment in 2012 which saw the sprawling 210-room resort brought into line with the demands of the savvy traveller, the Fairmont has been restored to its former glory and is a beacon for those looking for a romantic weekend away and families looking for space to run wild.
The resort boasts two restaurants, a lounge and bar, two sprawling swimming pools, one heated and one outdoor plus spa, fully equipped gymnasium, day spa treatment room, kids’ Magic Kingdom games rooms, tennis and squash courts, a games room, the Fairmont Express life-size replica toy train carrying guests around the resort as well as access to onsite bushwalking activities. Fairmont Resort MGallery has come a long way since 1988 and invites guests to share in its 25th anniversary milestone.
