Stay Here: The Ritz-Carlton, Perth

In The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, Western Australia's beachy capital finally gets a luxury hotel that's as beautiful and understated as the city itself

What’s the Deal?

Perth, Western Australia’s sunny beach-blessed capital, has long been crying out for more standout international hotels. But in The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, which opened late last year and heralds the brand’s arrival in Australia, it’s got a five-star high-rise to be proud of. Located in the new-ish riverside CBD development of Elizabeth Quay, the hotel is a celebration of Western Australia, boasting a lobby reminiscent of the state’s dramatic gorges, indigenous art and furniture shaped from its southern forests. It’s both beautiful and understated, which pretty much sums up the city.

Why stay?

No room in town immerses you in central Perth’s skyline, expansive park-surrounded river and generous greenery quite like these at The Ritz-Carlton, Perth.

Don’t miss

Hearth, the flagship restaurant helmed by Jed Gerrard. A pairing of the city’s hottest chef with Western Australia’s exceptional produce, seafood and wine? That’s just as good as it sounds.
