Oakwood has opened its first Australian property with the Oakwood Premier, located in Southbank, Melbourne. Pioneering the concept of Serviced Apartments for over 50 years now, Oakwood operates more than 80 properties globally, Melbourne being the 10th location for Oakwood Premier. This property is nothing like what the city currently offers, striking a nice balance between classic and contemporary design features. The impeccable facilities and thriving dining areas both have exquisite 360-degree views of Melbourne, overlooking Albert Park, Port Phillip Bay, the CBD and Williamstown with each room bundling together luxury and comfort.
Catering primarily to executives and business travellers, guests will have access to innovative tech and communication devices in their rooms along with a newly launched room service feature for added convenience. In addition to this, Oakwood Premier Melbourne will showcase art installations and a waterfall feature in and around the property, which pays homage to key Melbourne landmarks. Ultimately, Oakwood Premier Melbourne is set to transform what consumers traditionally know to be included in standard serviced apartment stays, catering to travellers of all ages and it is nothing short of impressive.
“The 4 year-long development is over and we are very excited to welcome guests to Australia’s first Oakwood Premier here in Melbourne,” says Andrew Donadel, General Manager, Oakwood Premier Melbourne. “The location of Oakwood Premier Melbourne is so central; guests will have all of what Melbourne has to offer at their very doorstep. The features throughout the property are outstanding, catering to business travellers who will be in town for a while and need a home away from home as well as leisure guests who may be visiting for a staycation or stopping by Melbourne briefly. The property exudes luxury and has been designed to pamper guests from the moment they arrive. With everything that has happened over the past two years, we’ve gone above and beyond to ensure that guests can enjoy a safe and stress-free stay with us. We are proud that we can now offer Oakwood Premier’s exemplary service in Australia and look forward to seeing guests walk through the grand lobby doors.”
The40-storey building will be one of the tallest, single purposely built developments in the Southern Hemisphere, showcasing 392 hotel rooms and serviced apartments and a sky bar with 360-degree views of the city. Staying true to Oakwood’s offering, this hotel caters to guests of all needs. 132 of the rooms have been designed as hotel rooms for transient guests on short stays and the remaining 260 serviced apartments are made up of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites for mid to long-term guests that range from 35 to 85 square metres in size.
Oakwood Premier Melbourne will also have an all-day dining restaurant called Fifth, a premium bar in the lobby, state of the
art indoor/outdoor fitness centre, three private meeting rooms, two large multipurpose function areas, a co-working space
and a lounge and games centre fitted with modern entertainment for those looking to play some snooker or video games.
Guests will also be able to relax and watch Melbourne thrive at either of the two outdoor lounge green oases on levels 5 and 6.
Oakwood Melbourne Premier is a 4-minute walk to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, a 13-minute walk to the
South Melbourne Market and only a 20-minute walk to Marvel Stadium for those attending the footy or concerts.
