Check Out Victoria’s Newest Boutique Hotel

Wow.

As many Melburnites can attest, if you’re looking to get out of the city for a few days, there’s really nothing like the Mornington Peninsula. Now, amid the region’s world-renowned wine region, a brand new luxury hotel is opening its doors.

Jackalope is a meticulously conceived boutique hotel set on one of the Peninsula’s most pristine vineyards. Set to open in early 2017, the hotel will comprise of 46 luxe rooms, a 30-metre infinity pool, art commissions and installations, destination dining and an on-property winery and cellar door, because of course. With a conceptual approach to art, design and dining, there’s no doubt Jackalope will redefine your definition of a regional hotel.

Seriously, just look at this place.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and private minimally-styled terraces connect you with Jackalope’s rural surrounds, while king-sized beds and designer goods provide luxury with a capital ‘L’.

Once they’ve had their fill of the Peninsula Hot Springs, guests will be able to get a spa experience right here on site with rain showers, double vanities, custom-made bath products and even deep-soak Japanese baths. Wowee.

The hotel also offers immersive wine and culinary experiences. At their fine dining restaurant Doot Doot Doot you’ll get a decadent insight into local flavours, while their cellar door and food store Red Hare celebrates its winemaking roots, serving up the very best of the Peninsula’s wine and food scene, all with blissful views to boot.

Keep your eyes firmly planted on Jackalope’s website for an opening date – safe to say it will make for a pretty unforgettable weekend getaway.
