An art-filled boutique retreat on South Yarra’s chic Chapel Street

Property reviewed by Sarah Gamboni on Friday, December 9, 2016

A living legend of the Australian art world, Dr John Olsen has lent both his name and his vivid large-scale canvases to this boutique retreat on Chapel Street. The South Yarra home of the Art Series Hotel Group, The Olsen promises a contemporary stay in the middle of Melbourne’s fashion and foodie hub. Along with Olsen’s whimsical landscapes, this 224-room hotel is decked out with soothing neutral tones (all the better to showcase Olsen’s vibrant brushstrokes) and modern guestrooms with handy kitchenettes.

In fact, these chic studios and apartments are so well-endowed that The Olsen is home to a number of long-term and permanent guests. And who could blame them for staying? With a gym, 24-hour concierge, day spa, hair salon and sparkling glass-sided pool perched above Chapel Street, The Olsen offers all the luxury accoutrements you could ask for.

The famed restaurants and bars of South Yarra are all on your doorstep, including The Olsen’s on-site restaurant, Spoonbill, and an edgy ground-floor bar called Two Wrongs. Venture a little further south and you’ll be greeted by a slew of award-winning eateries, as well as scores of cool clothing boutiques and high-street stores.

For sporty pursuits, borrow one of the hotel’s Kronan bicycles to hit the Capital City Trail, a 30-kilometre cycling path that loops around the Melbourne CBD. After a day spent pedaling or putting your credit card through its paces, relax with a pampering session in the Norbu day spa, swim a few laps in that showstopping swimming pool, or wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and dial up room service. By now, you’ll be entertaining your own ideas of moving in for good…
