If you are looking to get away from the city and rejuvenate, then Jackalope Hotel Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia is the perfect luxurious retreat to consider. Located in Merrick North, it is roughly an one-hour drive away from Melbourne. The 5-star boutique hotel is quietly situated on a magnificent vineyard in the world-renowned Mornington Peninsula wine region.
Jackalope Hotel incorporated a lot of chic and artistic elements into its design. Right outside the front door, you will find an eye-catching Jackalope art installation by Emily Floyd and UAP. Overlooking the rolling vineyard, the hotel is housed inside a contemporary black metal-clad architecture with a dramatic saw-cut roof.
Led by local studio Carr, the interior draws heavy inspiration from the mysterious alchemy and textual art. The jet-black walls, futuristic lighting, and bold objects all come together to create this eclectic and avant-garde aesthetic.
The 45 spacious rooms and suites of Jackalope Hotel are designed with a monochromatic black and white palette alongside some wooden touches. The styling of the rooms is a lot more toned down in order to present a more calming and soothing feel.
On the inside, you will find meticulous bespoke furnishing, sumptuous bedding, a large private terrace, heated flooring, a double rain shower, Tom Dixon toiletries, a lounge area with a TV, a Bose speaker, and complimentary internet access. Some rooms also feature a deep-soak Japanese stone bath, perfect for unwinding and rejuvenating.
