Breathtaking new Ritz-Carlton Melbourne open for business (and leisure)

2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for luxury hotel lovers and Marriott Bonvoy loyalists, with the new Ritz-Carlton Melbourne delivering an elevated stay in every way.

Melburnians can now get a taste of six-star opulence upon entering the newly-opened Ritz-Carlton Melbourne’s 80th-floor lobby doors.

That’s right, guests will begin their stay by journeying 80 floors up on a high-speed elevator. Destination: check-in with views over Melbourne’s Yarra River.

Redefining luxury on the East Coast, Melbourne’s latest luxury hotel listing marks the second Ritz-Carlton property in the country, with Perth home to Australia’s only other Ritz-Carlton hotel.

What to expect

Located on Lonsdale Street, the Ritz-Carlton Melbourne blends the vibrant city heart with everything we can expect from this long-esteemed brand.

Guests will likely want to lengthen the check-in process, with the hotel’s sky lobby making for more of an enriching experience than anything else.

The Ritz-Carlton’s 80 storeys will house 257 elegant rooms and suites – many of which are set to feature similarly awe-inspiring rooms.

In terms of kicking back outside the rooms, holistic wellness spaces on offer include a fitness centre, yoga studio and six treatment rooms, where regionally inspired spa journeys are on the menu.

A stunning Mediterranean-esque indoor infinity pool also promises sheer relaxation during all of Melbourne’s many weather moods.

In terms of elite spaces, a Club-level room or suite booking grants access to the 79th floor Ritz-Carlton Club (when available), where personalised service awaits.

As far as dining goes, the hotel reflects Melbourne’s epicurean obsessions perfectly, without compromising quality for choice.

The signature restaurant, Atria, features hyper-seasonal, innovative, inspiring dishes by Executive Chef Michael Greenlaw’s creative and progressive menu concepts, developed in partnership with Culinary Advisor Mark Best.

Located on the same level, Cameo is an intimate, sophisticated cocktail bar set high over the city, while the Ritz-Carlton Lobby Lounge offers the perfect setting for guests to enjoy coffee, casual luncheons and relaxed dinners.

other than that we can expect to be graced by a signature restaurant and intimate library-style bar: think date night in London.
