Guests of eco-luxury brand 1 Hotels will enjoy many perks available to permanent residents when its maiden property opens within the riverfront Seafarers complex in Melbourne in 2022, the company has revealed today.

The collection of apartments fronting the city’s Yarra River – by development brand Riverlee – will comprise 280 guest rooms and 129 serviced apartments, backed by a range of hotel-style amenities also available to owners and permanent residents including wellness centre with day spa facilities and treatments, fitness centre, swimming pool and sauna.

The complex will feature a number of food and beverage options, a lobby lounge bar, health centre, ground-floor retail and dining options as well as Seafarers Rest – a 3,500sqm waterfront public park. A private lounge, library, dining rooms and 500sqm rooftop terrace will also be open to short-stay guests.

Seafarers will front Melbourne’s Yarra River and is due to open in 2022.

Riverlee Development Director, David Lee, said 1 Hotel Melbourne would be the last waterfront opportunity in the Melbourne CBD and would be a brand unlike anything Melbourne had seen before.

“It seemed only fitting to partner with a hotel brand that values sustainability with the utmost importance – a brand that inspires residences, hotel guests, and visitors to live better by using less and as a developer, inspires us to deliver something that is not only sympathetic to the history of the site but supports long term ecological balance.”

Residents will have access to a variety of exclusive extra perks on an a la carte basis including private catering, personal shopping services, botanical care, pet services, dry cleaning, pharmacy and in-room dining. The building will feature a 24-hour concierge, bellman services, in-house personal training, massage services and beauty treatments. Priority hotel reservations, special rates, room upgrades and reciprocal signing benefits at 1 Hotels’ global property network will also be on the table for residents.

The 1 Hotels brand is the brainchild of Barry Sternlicht, who also created the W Hotels brand now owned and operated by Marriott International.

Seafarers Residences and 1 Hotel Melbourne is scheduled to open in 2022.
