Think legendary high tea, a transformational day spa and a famous chocolate fountain overlooking the glittering city lights.  

There are few finer places to soak up the culture, cocktails and cuisine of Melbourne’s cosmopolitan Southbank than The Langham, Melbourne. Don’t just take our word for it: it was named one of the top 10 hotels in Australia and New Zealand in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2023. Boasting a long list of luxe facilities, including three onsite dining experiences, the restorative Chuan Spa and a high-sky Club Lounge, the hotel is the ultimate five-star stay in the beating heart of Melbourne.  

1. The 24th floor Club Lounge is the height of luxury

Each personalised journey begins with a lifestyle questionnaire, ensuring your treatment is tailored to you.  

3. It's got the perfect Southbank location

No matter the time of year, Southbank encapsulates Melbourne’s extraordinary spirit. In the warmth of summer, street performers show off their tricks, while winter invites cosy moments with a local brew in a nearby cafe. Located in the heart of Melbourne’s art and cultural district, The Langham couldn’t be any closer to the action thanks to its prime position on the banks of the Yarra River, with its pool, rooms and more all commanding views over Southbank. Whizz up to  Melbourne Skydeck, the Southern Hemisphere's highest observation deck, or stroll across Princes Bridge to the city centre, where cobblestone laneways, hidden boutiques and some of Australia’s finest dining awaits. 

4. Its buffet and afternoon tea are legendary 

Indulge in some of the world's finest afternoon tea at he Langham Melbourne - Luxury Escapes

The Langham’s Melba Restaurant is not your usual hotel eatery. It serves unbeatable riverside views and a dream line-up of international cuisines from its open kitchen, with a sushi station, Chinese dumplings, homemade pastas and Australian seafood, as well as a popular Indian station where naan is made to order. But the restaurant’s main event is undoubtedly its famous couverture chocolate fountain, where everything from marshmallows to fruits get a dunking. If this sounds like your idea of heaven, its afternoon tea is a must. This quintessential experience is inspired by The Langham, London’s century-long legacy, with fluffy scones with cream and preserves, pillow-soft pastries and classic finger sandwiches, all washed down local sparkling and aromatic tea.  

5. There's a suite designed by Melbourne illustrator Kerrie Hess 

The jewel in the crown of the hotel’s luxury accommodation, The Residence by Kerrie Hess pulls out all the stops with a slice of Paris in the heart of Melbourne: think pastel pinks, peonies and custom artwork by Australia’s most celebrated fashion illustrator. With access to The Langham Club, a spacious lounge and dining area for up to six guests, two dreamy king bedrooms and marble bathrooms, this blush-hued suite is the epitome of luxury. Take your stay next-level with the Designer Indulgence package, where personalised designer pajamas, a bottle of rosé, custom Koko Black chocolates, fresh flowers and two 60-minute spa treatments are just the beginning.
