Reimagining an icon of the St Kilda foreshore, our interiors at the Prince of Wales honour the heritage, colour and carefree vigour of the seaside locale.

The historic Deco building’s boundless character informs a series of gracefully curated spaces, thrumming with contemporary Melburnian chic. 

Carefully planned rooms envelop you in comfort, exuding the relaxed ease of beachside apartments. Wrapped in pastel dado-lined walls, each is filled with local furniture and lighting pieces, showcasing our diverse artesian makers to the hotel’s international guests. 

Visitors may lounge on handmade oak chairs by HR McCarthy, or generous armchairs by Jardan, or park their coffee atop a blush concrete table by Nood Co. Adorned with brass pendants by ISM Objects and a photography series by Kate Ballis, environments are both intimate and distinct, dynamic and luxe. An experience of luxurious ease, drawing the best of its surroundings within.

Parents, children and guests can enjoy separate spaces to live, work and relax, in a home centred on purposeful connection. The positioning of robust living spaces both indoors and out invite organic social interaction throughout the property.
