The luxurious Ritz-Carlton is opening in Melbourne next year. Set on Lonsdale Street in the heart of the city, this grand hotel will soar 80 storeys above the CBD.

This elegant hotel will feature heart-stopping views, luxury accommodation, signature dining experiences, holistic wellness spaces and a dreamy infinity pool. The lobby will sit on Level 80, offering a dramatic introduction to the hotel above 257 stylish rooms and suites. There will also be meeting and event facilities and services.
The Ritz-Carlton will be distinctly Melbourne, designed with materials inspired by the city’s unique stories. Discover works by local artists, go on hyper-local culinary adventures, admire unique Melbourne décor and relax with a regionally-inspired spa journey.
The guest rooms and suites will be the perfect urban retreat. Take a moment to relax and admire sweeping panoramic views of the city. The rooms will also feature custom leather and velvet furniture, and marble bathrooms with double vanities, rain showers and oversized bathtubs.
The culinary team will be led by Executive Chef Michael Greenlaw and Culinary Adviser Mark Best. Greenlaw has 15 years of experience under his belt, and has worked at Michelin-starred and hatted restaurants, including Bibendum in London, Gilt in New York and Vue de Monde in Melbourne.

“Our vision for the dining experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne is driven by a quest for the unusual, the hard-to-find and the hyper-seasonal,” said Greenlaw. This journey will shape the way they source their produce, influence their menus and inspire the culinary experience for diners.
