Sit­u­ated in pic­turesque Mer­ri­jig, a two-and-a-halfhour drive from Mel­bourne and a short 30-minute drive from the pris­tine snow-cov­ered Mt Buller ski re­sort, the new-look Sebel Pin­na­cle Val­ley Re­sort pays homage to Euro­pean Alpine style. “Mt Buller has more than 300 hectares of ski­able ter­rain. “With the runs rang­ing from the wide be­gin­ner’s slopes to the chal­lenge of black runs like Chamois and the back of Sum­mit, suit­able for all skiers,” Dun­can said. “And with 22 lifts, Mt Buller has the largest lift net­work in Vic­to­ria, in­clud­ing 13 chair­lifts.” Dun­can out­lined that the re­cent $4 mil­lion make- over has seen this the Ac­cor Va­ca­tion Club’s Sebel Pin­na­cle Val­ley Re­sort morph from the much-loved Grand Mer­cure Pin­na­cle Val­ley into a wel­com­ing and lux­u­ri­ous Alpine Re­sort. “Guests will be en­chanted with the re­vamped re­cep­tion and Peaks restau­rant and bar with its mod­ern Ty­rolean feel,” he said. “The blue­stone fea­ture fire­places, rich choco­late Ch­ester lounges, raw tim­ber fur­nish­ings and luxe cus­tom-made car­pet add to the wel­com­ing warmth and Alpine charm. “The re­vamped suites and chalets of­fer a new stan­dard for alpine lux­ury. “You can choose from stu­dio rooms, one-bed­room suites or two bed­room chalets all with sep­a­rate lounge, din­ing and kitchen fa­cil­i­ties,” Dun­can said. “A mix of warm tim­ber floors and sump­tu­ous car­pets cover the floors while soft fur­nish­ings in sil­ver, grey and red adds an el­e­gance to the wellap­pointed space. “The Sebel prides it­self on its ex­cep­tional ser­vice and our highly-trained staff of­fer per­sonal ser­vice that is sec­ond to none.” Dun­can and his staff in­vite guests to en­joy a cock­tail in the bar or a de­li­cious cof­fee while loung­ing on the comfy couches in the atrium when their ski­ing day is done. “Or why not warm your aching mus­cles in the spa or sauna,” he sug­gests.
