The hotel offers a range of room packages, including the "Aboriginal Immersion", which comes with accommodation and breakfast for two, as well as a "memorable journey through dance, music, and art" at the Koomurri Aboriginal Centre and Gallery. Rates for this package start at $373US per night.
Lilianfels actually joined Starwood with adjacent Echoes Resort, a 14-room boutique hotel where each of the rooms offers uninterrupted views over the national park. Rates at Echoes for a getaway weekend in July including two nights' accommodation, breakfast, and one three-course dinner start at a steep $650USD, with no change or cancellation.
In a funny coincidence, the Observatory Hotel will be Langham's second property in Australia, the other being the Langham Melbourne. That property used to be the Sheraton Towers Southgate, part of Starwood's Luxury Collection, which Lilianfels now calls home. How small the hotel world really is!
