Big Sky Retreats launches Altitude I, Australia’s first commercial property with high altitude sleep technology.
No longer restricted to elite athletes, medical clinics or dramatic peaks and alpine ridges, the high-altitude experience can now be enjoyed by everyday travellers with the launch of Big Sky Retreat’s Altitude I villa, Australia’s first commercial property with simulated altitude sleep technology.
Centrally located in the scenic town of Bright, Victoria, Big Sky’s Altitude I villa is the latest luxury base camp without the summit.Using Box Altitude technology in the two-bedroom villa, guests are treated to a simulated high-altitude sleeping environment that fills the room with filtered hypoxic air or a lower concentration of oxygen. Controlled by smart sensors via a smart phone app or iPad, this cutting-edge technology is one of the fastest and easiest ways to give you increased fitness, energy levels and cognitive threshold, all while you sleep.
Ensuring safety and efficiency, each room’s oxygen concentration level is moderated depending on what stage of sleep each individual is at. Guests will get out of bed every morning feeling like they’re on top of the world – and they practically will be.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing altitude travel-inspired accommodation to the Australian market. This technology is amazing and not just for elite athletes anymore – sleeping at altitude is regarded among athletes and sports scientists as delivering physical benefits by simply increasing the delivery of oxygen through the blood. We want to take that science and offer it to the everyday traveller, significantly improving their lifestyle while on vacation,” says Founder of Big Sky Retreats, Paul Absalom.
“Other than atop a mountain, where else can you sleep while losing weight, improving your fitness, increasing energy levels and enjoying a boost in general health and wellbeing?”
Ex-professional cyclist and Founder of the Box Altitude technology, Rico Rogers, agrees there’s no better place to condition you for the peaks or a high-altitude staycation.
“We have worked with and supply some of the best athletes and coaches in the world with this technology. Now everybody has the opportunity to experience the big thing in sport science that everyone’s doing but no one is talking about due to its incredible benefits and advantages. Hopefully now the secret is out.”
Developed with sky-high comfort in mind, Altitude I features a fully equipped kitchen, two perfectly appointed bedrooms with the highest quality beds and linen, wardrobes and a designer bathroom with underfloor heating, a private fitness and activity space complete with Everest boxing, Star Trac spin bike yoga equipment, plush furnishings and luxury Alchemist amenities; the perfect place to charge your batteries.
Guests can go one step further during their stay with a range of tailored local experiences, including personal workouts and yoga sessions, in-house chefs and retreat massages.
There’s nothing like the feeling of crisp, alpine air in your lungs and with Altitude I, you never have to go without.
