Hotels, Resorts, Apartments


The Escarpment Group is a unique collection of Luxury Escapes in the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains and offer ideal venues for your next event. The group incorporates 4 luxury brands that are iconic to the Blue Mountains – Lilianfels Resort & Spa, Echoes Boutique Hotel & Restaurant, The Hydro Majestic Hotel and Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges. Each of these established icons is steeped in history and surrounded by dramatic landscapes and breathtaking views that are unique to the Blue Mountains region.

  • The Escarpment Group is independently owned and operated - its investment in the Blue Mountains region beginning in 2004 with Echoes Boutique Hotel and Restaurant.
  • In 2008, The Hydro Majestic was acquired with a view to refurbishing one of the most iconic resorts in Australia and so began an exhaustive chapter of peeling back the layers and adding back the luxe.
  • In 2009, they acquired Lilianfels Resort & Spa and continued to successfully operate it as the premier 5 star property within 90 mins Sydney CBD.
  • More recently in 2013, the group added to its collection Parklands Country Gardens and Lodges with a view of adding to the story of luxury sustainable regional tourism.

Tasked with the job of delivering these unique experiences, Mr. Ralf Bruegger - Group General Manager has assembled a dynamic and experienced operations management team focused on delivering 5 star standard of hospitality. Ralf’s accomplishments and background in food and beverage will help to take these properties to the next level.

To further support its growing profile in the region and meet the operational demands the properties, the Escarpment group has embarked on a joint venture with TAFE Western Sydney Institute to set up the Hotel Management Institute (HMI) in September 2012. Its aim is to provide internationally recognised qualifications for hospitality students and facilitate bespoke training of all Escarpment staff through an accredited program unique to HMI. This will not only provide the Blue Mountains region with increased economic activity and a robust education industry but more importantly an increased pool of trained staff ready to deliver a high standard of hospitality services across its properties.

With so much planning about to unfold at the Hydro Majestic in 2014, The Escarpment group is truly committed to the region and is focused delivering high end tourism on a scale rarely seen in regional NSW. The regional food and wine focus will certainly be the highlight with many more chapters unfolding on what is a very exciting period for Blue Mountains tourism.
