Fancy are the ways of the rich would be an understement if you were to set your eyes on The Saints and Bale, two of the coolest ski lodges in the world and rightly so. The fact that skiing is a pet game of the moneyed is known to everyone. So it doesn’t come as a surprise to see them owning and not renting a swank chalet in the peaks, which has given rise to several stunning alpine villages around the world full of luxury architecturally designed dwellings. Australia is home to three such luxury resorts – Mount Buller, Falls Creek and Mount Hotham – where luxury apartments boast the superior design and services of a world-class hotel. The latest development is The Saints at all three of the above resorts, the latest venture for Zacamoco, the developers of Huski in Falls Creek. The Saints luxury apartments feature hot tubs and heated outdoor entertaining areas.
Other city-like indulgence services include a Turkish style hammam, sauna, massage, in room dining and 24 hour reception. Prices start from $316,835 for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment, $400,871 for a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartments and $446,561 for a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartments. Mount Hotham has always been considered a skier’s mountain, offering the best fall-line skiing in Australia and boasts the nation’s only alpine airport. Designed for those select few who aim the highest, Bale will comprise 41 ‘sky homes’ together with a bar, restaurant and cafe, mountain view pool and day spa, all housed in a modernist indoor/outdoor structure located in the heart of Hotham village, offering the ultimate ski in / ski out experience. The one, two, three and five-bedroom sky homes, priced from $1.14 million to $5.7 million for the penthouse (which is already sold), set new property price benchmarks in the snowfields. Buyers have come from around Australia, Europe and the United States. Looking at these ski lodges I would definitely wanna reside in them even if I am not close to the ‘s’ of skiing.
