United Places Botanic Gardens
Occupying an ultra-modern glass building that looks like a trendy block of flats, United Places Botanic Gardens’ 12 rooms radiate inner-city cool, with oak floors, polished concrete and luxe-leather furniture. Generous balconies make the most of the leafy surrounds, with views of the tumbling lawns of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in swanky South Yarra. The property also prides itself on collaborating with local artisanal producers, with bespoke Szilvassy ceramics filling the kitchenette cupboards, organic cotton Loom towels lining the bathroom and whisky by Sullivans Cove Distillery populating the minibar. Guests also receive a complimentary breakfast delivered to their room from the wood-fired ovens of Matilda 159 Domain downstairs.
