Accor opens its latest luxury hotel in Melbourne

Accor has opened the doors of its newest luxury Melbourne hotel – Shadow Play by Peppers– in the city’s vibrant Southbank arts and entertainment district.

Developed by luxury property developer Jonathan Hallinan of BPM and echoing Melbourne’s sophistication, the 46-storey landmark hotel features an exquisite selection of spacious one and two bedroom apartments with full kitchen and laundry facilities and floor to ceiling windows for lashings of natural light and incredible city or bayside views.

In-room minibars are stocked with locally sourced produce and, for the ultimate indulgence, guests can stay in a Two Bedroom Corner Apartment which comes complete with a private outdoor winter garden.

Avant-garde design elements feature throughout the property, breaking tradition and routine hotel design with a cohesive collection of contrasts – light and dark, formal and informal, and seductive dark statement pieces contrasting with white stone and timber.

On arrival, guests are welcomed to the hotel in a beautifully appointed lobby on the ground floor, which flows into Edwin Wine Bar & Cellar.

This brand new venue is positioned to be one of Melbourne’s finest food and wine experiences with its seasonally curated menu and extensive wine list, with distinct Victorian flavour, meticulously selected by the Edwin Wine Bar & Cellar’s sommelier.

Shadow Play by Peppers also boasts an array of unique guest spaces including a heated pool, gymnasium, sauna and steam room, and an enclosed garden space on the 46th floor, complete with a freestanding fireplace, a lavish guest lounge and library with an adjoining patio, and commanding bayside views.

Nestled in the heart of the city and within walking distance to the Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne Arts Centre, the National Gallery of Victoria, Crown Casino, the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, and the city’s finest shopping and dining precincts, Shadow Play by Peppers offers a stylish urban retreat for leisure and business travellers.

“We’re excited visitors to Southbank can now experience Peppers’ unique style and acclaimed hospitality. Shadow Play by Peppers has added a new level of sophistication and luxury to Melbourne’s accommodation offering, which caters perfectly to an increasingly selective global market that is looking for quality, location and facilities of a world-class caliber,” Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath said.

Shadow Play by Peppers is the brand’s second Melbourne property. The first, Peppers Docklands, opened in January 2016.
