St. Jerome’s – The Hotel is set to debut boutique luxury camping accommodation in the Melbourne CBD, on the sprawling rooftop of one of the city’s busiest shopping centres, Melbourne Central.
The hotel is home to 21 spacious canvas bell tents, each fitted out with all the trimmings expected of a luxury hotel, including a queen bed, premium linen by Linen House, split system heating and cooling, a tablet loaded with movies, plus a stocked esky with beer and cider.
Guests can embark on an unparalleled urban experience while enjoying an activity-filled accompanying itinerary, including sweets and tea on arrival, a game of ten-pin bowling next door at Strike, a cocktail at Cocktail Hour, custom Gelato Messina dessert, T2 sleep-time tea delivery, and even guided morning meditation.
Additional onsite amenities include 24-hour reception, a General Store serving as the bar and communal area for campers, nine amenity units with toilets and showers featuring luxurious ASPAR spa products, plus a brand new infrared sauna.
The hotel offers accommodation in three tent types – Luxe(4m x 4m), Luxe Plus (5m x 5m), and its recently unveiled six-metre tent, The Lodge. Its largest and most luxe tent of the troop features a unique oval design and dual centre poles creating two spacious wings, offering enough room for even a couch, plus additional shelving and storage space.
The Lodge tents hail from GlamXperience, a Netherlands-born, Australia-based company specialising in high quality canvas, fully equipped safari tents, bell tents and domes.
