Luxury Holidays At United Places Botanic Garden

Taking the idea of a boutique hotel to another level, the United Places Botanic Garden is a real hidden gem, tucked away in leafy South Yarra and surrounded by elegant Art Deco architecture, achingly cool cafes, and designer boutiques. Eschewing the idea of a traditional city hotel, this 12-suite hotel offers an intimate and service-driven stay with personal butlers, glorious dining, and lavish interiors that invite you to linger for a while and soak up the energy of South Yarra. The spacious suites face the Royal Botanic Gardens or the Melbourne skyline and feature separate living and dining spaces, oversized balconies, and the rooms also combine Italian pieces with locally made furniture for a contemporary and modern feel. Overseen by renowned chef Scott Pickett, dining comes courtesy of Matilda 159, where local produce creates a fire-fuelled menu prepared over coals and open flames. In-suite dining from Matilda 159 is also available, as is a neighbourhood all day dining menu. Speak to your personal butler about private and tailor-made wellness experiences, which are available exclusively to all guests and let them share their knowledge of Melbourne’s must-see, off the radar highlights. Although, with so much to discover on the doorstep, you may not wander very far at all.
