Louis T, a Singapore-based hotel management company opened the Quay Perth hotel, an 80-room boutique property overlooking Elizabeth Quay and the Swan River in Western Australia. The structure houses guest rooms, public areas, an all-day sidewalk eatery and an urbane rooftop bar and kitchen, surrounded by the city’s idyllic ambience.
A multi-million-dollar revamp of the former New Esplanade Hotel introduces an engaging concept of co-living, co-working and co-playing for locals and hotel guests, all in one destination.
A walk through Quay Perth’s design
Inspired by Western Australia’s natural landscape and Perth’s unruffled vibe, Quay Perth’s design palette is earthy and uses natural local materials like Victorian Ash wood. Converted to an entirely modern and Australian-styled space, the hotel resulted from the collaboration of leading architects, Nicola Gibson and Daniel Bailey and renowned interior designer, Malvina Stone.
Surrounded by the waterfront’s spectacular views, the appeal of the interiors begins with the entrance, a spacious lobby which connects with the sidewalk eatery.
The property’s 80 guestrooms boast a laid-back yet a fancy setup with large windows and ample hints of natural timber, where the sleek bathrooms feature slate grey tiles and rain showers and the bedrooms offer plush beds and linens, coffee and tea service, in-room safes, Smart TV, bar fridge and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Guests have the option to choose from a range of rooms like the Esplanade Studio rooms, Quay-facing rooms, entry level rooms, Perth Essential and Perth Loft rooms; each room enjoying distinct views of the waterfront, the skyline and the treescape.
Quay Perth’s culinary spree
Guests can indulge in a culinary experience at the HQ Bar & Kitchen, a chic open-air bar located on the 10th floor, which offers locally made wines and craft beers. The Chinese-inspired menu lists bar bites, bao buns, platters and mains from farms to the seas.
A spacious outdoor terrace leads into the hotel, connected by Community at Quay, the property’s all-day sidewalk eatery, which is a cozy café, displaying Victorian ash battens and sophisticated booth seating organised on soft polished concrete floors. Inside its floor-to-ceiling windows, tranquillity comes easy with a premium menu featuring pastries from Maison St. Honore, handcrafted savouries, salads, organic juices and smoothies, with a wide selection of wines, beers and ciders.
Co-Working at Quay Perth
Comprising a range of experiences, Quay Perth also provides a 24/7 co-working space on level nine, overlooking the Swan River. The spot encompasses two meeting rooms for five to ten people, ten individual offices, eight window desks boasting a floor-to-ceiling vista of Elizabeth Quay and an extension of communal work desks for hotel guests and locals to work and connect. Amenities like private phone booths, printing and scanning and more such services can be availed.
