Nestled high up in the Blue Mountains above Kingston, Strawberry Hill is simplicity and luxury combined. Each cottage is unique and rests in its own spot on the hillside with a balcony that allows you to drink in the stunning surroundings. The resort comprises of a lovely wood-panelled bar from which to enjoy a selection of delicious cocktails, and a restaurant on the veranda where you can savour the lights of Kingston far below, mingled with candles and starlight above.
