Perth’s Five Star Apartments

by James Lush

If you are looking for a luxury vacation in a place known for its laid-back lifestyle where the days are always sunny and the air is always clean, then it is about time that you visited Perth.

Perth is a beautiful clean city, surrounded on all sides with nature’s visual charms. Whether you love the beach (Perth beaches are considered the best in the world!), the hills (lots of gorgeous green unique Australian trees and plants) or the picturesque Swan River, meandering all the way to the ocean, Perth does NOT disappoint.

Once you get to Perth, you’ll need somewhere to stay, and we recommend you consider a Five Star apartment for that extra special touch of luxury. The following are among the city’s leading luxury five-star apartments that you may want to consider:

1. Sunset Suites : With attention to detail and generous spaces, Sunset Suites offers 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartment accommodation in the beautiful beach suburb of Cottesloe, or 1 bedroom apartments and 3 bedroom villa accommodation in popular Fremantle. Sunset Suites provides short term self catering apartment accommodation with a focus on relaxed luxury and classic elegance for the business traveller and discerning holiday maker alike. A delightful alternative to a Perth hotel.

2. Hidden Valley : Something a little bit different is Hidden Valley, located just 30 mins from Perth in the hills suburb of Pickering Brook. Hidden Valley is an “Eco Spa Lodges and Day Spa” offering luxury apartment accommodation in a private Jarrah forest. Perfect for weekend escapes or for day spa treatments, Hidden Valley is ideal for romantic mid week escapes, a honeymoon or simply spoiling yourself with some quality time alone. Their accommodation features a king size bed, fully equipped kitchen, a wood burning fire, reverse cycle air conditioning, etc. On each private veranda is your very own jacuzzi, table setting and gas BBQ, to ensure you are ready for any situation. Hidden Valley has been written up in many popular magazines as one of Australia’s top 6 Day Spas, so why not experience its luxury yourself.

3. Stratton CBD Apartments : The new Stratton CBD apartments are situated in Murray St, right in the heart of Perth. The location is great with just a short stroll to Hay St Mall, Shafto Lane and the new Perth Convention Centre. In addition, the famous His Majesty’s Theatre (heritage listed) is just around the corner and there are HEAPS of cafes and restaurants nearby (in Northbridge as well as the CBD). Stratton CBD offers an air of subdued luxury together with residential tranquility. Naturally, it includes all the guest facilities you’d expect, such as a heated pool, gymnasium, spa & sauna, as well as giving guests a choice between a standard and Platinum 2 bedroom apartment. Get into the city at Stratton CBD and enjoy the luxury accommodation it offers, along with the delights of Perth.

4. Seashells Scarborough : Located near beautiful Scarborough Beach, on WA’s Sunset Coast, Seashells Serviced Apartments is only 15 mins drive from the Perth CBD, and less than 100 m from the beach. The spectacular views out over the Indian Ocean make this a great spot for your luxury vacation to Perth. Each self-contained apartment has a large balcony or courtyard for you to enjoy the view, and the property has 2 heated swimming pools as well as the obligatory spa, sauna and gym. Enjoy the beach life in style at Seashells Scarborough – you won’t be sorry!

5. Mantra on Murray : Mantra on Murray (previously the Pacific International) offers comfort and style in Perth’s CBD, at 305 Murray St. With 190 spacious fully equipped apartments, and meeting facilities for up to 200, as well as being close to all the major attractions of the Perth CBD, it’s perfect for visitors to our fair city wanting somewhere central and stylish to stay. They even have a foreign exchange desk for international travellers wanting to convert their money into Australian currency. Relax in Bin 305 – their licensed wine bar and cafe and wind down from a hard day’s holidaying in Perth. Check out the Mantra – you won’t be disappointed.

If you can’t find a quality vacation apartment amongst the above 5 delights, you’re just not trying. So now, in the words of Lara Bingle “So, where the bl**dy hell are you?” Perth awaits!
