Escape to Wyong
Sydney life seems to burn us all out, and gets us caught up in the crazy rat race and seems to be a mundane routine week in and week out. Escape the vicious cycle and head to the Mercure Hotel in Wyong, one hour and one world away from Sydney.
Located on the Central Coast in Wyong, approximately 99.6km from Sydney or 1hour and 25 minutes from Sydney CBD in a peaceful location surrounded by nature in every sense. Away from the loud, noisy city life of Sydney to the transition of a tranquil open air of Wyong. You can find yourself putting your mind at ease instantly with the sound of a relaxing country town feel of this resort.
Staying at the Mercure Kooindah Waters Golf & Spa resort here in Wyong, it's a great resort that has much to offer their guests. Waking up to the sound of quietness, the sound of nothing rather than the sound of your annoying daily alarm that usually awakes you from a deep slumber during your working week. Waking up in this peaceful environment is a reason to come here alone.
The first thing you want to do when you wake up is take a look outside your window and gaze at the green nature you are surrounded by. Wishing you could exchange your alarm clock for this instead? Well, this is why people come here. Amazingly, this is just the beginning, you haven't even started the day yet.
This place has a lot to offer as a relaxing resort, you have a range of facilities to choose from that will have you organising your day to get the most out of it. From tennis courts to a golf course, a gym (for those who still want to keep active and break a sweat while away), not to forget the one thing that you know kids love that will keep them going for hours, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. However, for those wishing to simply relax and do nothing, the resort will keep you just as happy as everyone else as you can just be lazy around the pool, or stay indoors & watch TV or head to the restaurant that's part of the hotel and have a few drinks there. The bar has an outdoor and indoor area with gorgeous views of the resort that will have you relaxed for hours.
With the choice of having to cook in your kitchen or trying the chefs' flavours at Karinya's Restaurant & Wine Bar inside the hotel, you won't have to worry. The hotel offers you a buffet breakfast for an additional cost which covers an extensive selection of breakfast choices. Muesli, toast, freshly cooked hot food to fruits just to name a few and your standard hot and cold beverages. For the dinner time, you will get lost with their selection of dishes on the menu. If you are a meat lover and wish to try something different, I personally recommend the "Shawarma". It is the shoulder lamb, so succulent, tender and cooked with flavours that will have your eyes rolling. It comes with grilled eggplant, couscous, pomegranate & an amazing sauce that just has an incredible effect in your mouth. This dish is highly impressive and very delicious, I even chose to stop at this meal and skipped dessert because I didn't want the flavours in my mouth to get washed away.
Hotel prices are very friendly to your wallet for what they have to offer as a resort, with rooms starting from as little as $200 per night (excluding food). Wyong truly has much to offer as an escape for families, couples or even a group of friends that are just looking for some time out to chill.
