Another high-end hotel is set to open in a showpiece waterfront development in the capital of Western Australia on 15 November with the arrival of the Ritz-Carlton Perth in the Elizabeth Quay precinct on the edge of the city’s central business district.
The property has 205 guestrooms including 18 suites led by the 277sq m Ritz-Carlton Suite with outdoor balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Guests staying in premium rooms can relax in the Ritz-Carlton Club on the sixth floor, with facilities including a concierge, food and an outdoor al fresco area overlooking the Swan River.
Business guests will have the use of more than 2,000sq m of meeting and event spaces, including the signature 550sq m Elizabeth Quay Ballroom with natural light and views of the city skyline.
Hotel residents and visitors alike will have a choice of two restaurants, so far unnamed, with food and drink menus under the command of what the hotel calls “a celebrated local executive chef”.
Other facilities include a rooftop bar for cocktails and snacks and the Ritz-Carlton Spa, featuring an outdoor heated infinity pool, four treatment rooms, saunas, a private yoga studio and two outdoor heated vitality pools with massage jets.

Unlike most waterfront developments (replacing old run-down commercial areas) this one was built over beautiful parklands leading down to the ferry point for south Perth (my daily commute in the 70s).Shame really.
