Top Five Loves
Rest & Relax

Devoted to Archibald Prize winning painter Dr John Olsen, The Olsen offers five star luxury accommodation with an aesthetic far removed from your standard one size fits all hotel. Its architecture is vaguely inspired by Olsen’s work, particularly his linear pieces. The Olsen has fast become a leader (and an award-winning one at that) among Australian hoteliers; little wonder it has become a hotspot for fashion shoots and glamorous private parties over its rather short lifespan. The hotel is at least in part responsible for the reinvigoration of the northside of Chapel Street, acting as a home base to explore countless cafes, restaurants and upscale boutiques in the surrounds. Don’t forget to have a dip in their showcase piece – a gloriously inviting glass-bottomed pool – (just don’t forget your own bottoms lest you want to give Chapel Street shoppers a rude shock.)

 

Bloom’s flagship store is full of botanically derived, often organic beauty treats for skin. Their makeover menu extends from a 15 minute quick fix on your lunchbreak to spending hours learning all the tricks of the trade.

 

Hidden away down a lane and behind a gate, the opulent multi-level former residence that is now Y Salon is worth seeking out when serious pampering is in order. The team here have decades of experience in taming tresses and perfecting pouts.

 

In a prime position on the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road, The Como appears to be your typically beautiful modern hotel. But surprises await. May we suggest a stay in a suite with a Japanese garden? Or how about taking advantage of their movies and martinis package? And do make sure you figure out what the mysterious ‘Como duck’ is all about.

 

As part of the Art Series Hotel group – along with the aforementioned Olsen – The Cullen takes as its muse the contemporary Australian artist Adam Cullen. His vivid works bring this boutique hotel to life.
