More luxury seekers head to Mountain Whispers Katoomba


Mountain Whispers has enjoyed a whopping 20% growth in bookings this quarter when compared to the same time last year.

Owner Lorraine Allanson says the growth followed the recent relaunch of the newly designed website which offers visitors a better online experience and look and feel that more accurately reflect the products on offer.

Pleased with the performance of the site, Allanson also attributes the spike in bookings at her portoflio of four luxury properties to strong visitor interests to the Blue Mountains.

"The Blue Mountains is the top tourist destination in NSW, with stable year on year visitor growth. And for what it's known for – its rich heritage, unique landscape and romantic atmosphere, overnight visitors often seek out luxury accommodation and pamper packages to complete their ideal Blue Mountains experience," says Lorraine.

"What Mountain Whispers offers is the full luxury indulgence package that not only includes total privacy and exclusive use of the properties, personalised in-house services and decadent extras, but even more importantly, great value for money," she says. "These are the things our guests look for when they come to the Blue Mountains.

"Although the properties can welcome between four and six guests, couples who book their stay at a property will enjoy the entire place to themselves for the duration of their stay," she adds. "And while couple bookings remain strong, we are seeing more and more group bookings come through, especially groups of girlfriends and bridal parties."

Lorraine believes the new website along with the attention to detail, value-added extras and personalised services will see bookings continue to grow steadily.

Rooms start from $300 per couple, per night and include exclusive use of the property, a bottle of boutique wine from Orange, hand-crafted chocolates by award winning Josophan's of Leura, a gourmet breakfast and fresh flowers. Additional guests per property pay $75 per person.
