Lilianfels a Luxury Collection Resort
Positioned on a bluff in southeast Australia’s Blue Mountains National Park, Lilianfels is a country house built in 1889 that has been converted into an 85-room resort and spa, set on two acres of English-style gardens. The proper British aesthetic continues inside: guest rooms, many with gorgeous views of the Jamison Valley, are filled with overstuffed furniture and antique floral prints. In the cream-toned lounge, you can hang out by the fireplace and take in an equally panoramic view while enjoying a steaming cup of jasmine tea, fresh scones, and homemade jam.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
