The two hit it off over their shared design synergy that illuminates from both the outside in, creating places to meet and mingle over daring art pieces and adventurous design.

Innovative design and custom furnishings have been curated with intricate detail from the moment guests step into the hotel, following a staircase of timber river reeds to Welcome, where they will find polished concrete floors and metallic textures, as well as a tower of tropical fruit and an iconic Aussie thong for good measure.

Earth tones, sedimentary layers and frayed edges are found, multilayered with textures of the serpentine river and mixed with vibrant artwork from celebrated Australian artist, Reko Rennie.

Guests can flex their creative muscles to paint their own panna cotta, and indulge in delicious, themed desserts like cherry chocolate profiteroles, Valrhona chocolate mousse tart, pomme verte mousse and Lemon myrtle scones.
