Wonderfully over-the-top sums up this Melbourne landmark, from the lobby, with its glorious excess of marble and gilding, to the massive crystal chandeliers in the Crystal Club, a VIP lounge reserved for guests of the luxe penthouse villas. The suites are similarly all about excess: huge walk-in closets and lavish marble contribute to the high-life feeling. Most rooms have spectacular views of the city (others overlook the river or the bay), and there are plenty of other diversions outside of the room, including a lobby ringed with luxury designer stores; world-class restaurants, such as Nobu and Rockpool; and a luxurious and tranquil day spa.
Aficionados of five-star properties will love the Langham, with its riverfront location and air of quiet luxury. Set beside the Yarra River on the famous Southbank Promenade, the Langham is a quick walk from the designer shops on Collins Street. All 388 guest rooms have views, the best of which are of the river (“Southbank View” rooms), some with balconies or terraces. Accommodations feature handmade furnishings and marble bathrooms with whirlpool baths. The hotel’s Asian-inspired Chuan Spa is a holistic wellness sanctuary and there is a 49-foot pool, fully equipped fitness center and health club on site.
