Experience elevated luxury overlooking Brisbane River and watch the vibrant city lights from the rooftop infinity pool with a five-star stay at Emporium Hotel South Bank. Undeniably luxurious, with accolades including Australia’s Leading Boutique Hotel at the 2020 World Travel Awards and a Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice 2020 badge, this urban retreat delivers 'wow' factor from the moment you arrive. From the huge ‘E’ on the front of the building and the Instagram-worthy Terrace Rooftop Bar to a glistening 23m infinity pool adorned by lush palm trees and panoramic skyline views, this hotel is set to impress. High-end facilities include the award-winning Signature restaurant — a sophisticated space serving local, seasonal produce and an impeccably curated, 6,000-strong wine collection. Step off the streets of South Bank right onto a Parisian promenade at Belle Époque, a pastry café inspired by French finesse, then while away the evening in 1920s glamour with a stiff drink and smooth jazz at Piano Bar.
Tranquil ambience and breathtaking views don’t even begin to cover the beauty inside every luxurious suite. Stylish and spacious, with each detail and handcrafted touch creating a sensory symphony bound to leave a lasting impression, suites boast the latest in-room automation, entertainment technology and premium amenities to create a one-of-a-kind urban sanctuary
