After an absence of over a decade, Perth and The Towers at Elizabeth Quay are to be the site of the anticipated return of the Ritz-Carlton brand to Australian shores, with construction having begun this year.
Sitting proudly as the centrepiece of this unique, prominent foreshore location, the proposed Ritz-Carlton will offer guests a new luxury destination experience in Western Australia, attracting visitors from across the globe. Its commanding waterfront position features a sweeping view over the Swan River, and the nearby attractions of Kings Park and the Botanical Garden.
The proposed Ritz-Carlton hotel at Elizabeth Quay will feature 204 luxury hotel suites accompanied by a wide range of venues and recreational amenities. Guests will enjoy the hotel’s array of amenities including The Ritz-Carlton Spa offering indulgent signature treatments and tailored spa experiences, vitality pools and treatment rooms, fitness centre, roof bar and lounge, pool, whirl pool, restaurant, meeting rooms, pre-function foyer with gallery looking down to entrance foyer, junior ballroom, main ballroom, and club lounge. The podium rooftop bar will be accessible to the general public and will be a prime vantage point over the quayside.
Adding to the lavish accommodation and services enjoyed by guests who stay at the hotel, will be the wide range of venues within the hotel – a grand ballroom and function rooms – making Elizabeth Quay ‘the’ place for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, important industry conferences, exhibitions, launches and gala events.
The development of the Ritz-Carlton at Elizabeth Quay will be the first of a new roll-out of the luxury hotel brand in Australia, with properties expected to debut in Melbourne in 2020 and Brisbane in 2021.
James Doolan, Vice President Hotel Development at Ritz-Carlton’s parent company, Marriott International Inc, said the group is delighted at today’s ground-breaking for construction of the Ritz-Carlton Perth.
“This is another hugely significant step towards the long-awaited return of Ritz-Carlton in Australia,” he said. “Far East Consortium and its expert consultants have conceived and designed a world-class project at Elizabeth Quay. It will become a landmark destination for Western Australia.”
The Ritz-Carlton hotel rooms will be all-suite, with the smallest rooms double the size of a standard hotel room. The glamorous restaurants, ballrooms and spa treatment facilities will rival any hotel in the world.
