The refurbishment of the Vines Resort in Western Australia’s Swan Valley is now complete.
The resort celebrated, which 25 years in 2014, has unveiled the full makeover of its 91 rooms and 12 suites including new modern bathrooms, furniture, soft furnishings, beds and manchester.
Inspired by the golfing greens and natural bushland that surrounds the resort, the palette is soothing greens, neutrals and splashes of blues and green. Interior designers, Oldfield Knott of Perth, have maintained the peace of the countryside inside the guest room.
The rooms feature pod coffee machines, (with real fresh milk) following research that showed guests favoured them, along with free in-room WiFi (very high speed available at extra cost), free in-house movies on demand, and selected Foxtel channels for couch potatoes.
Novotel Vines Swan Valley Resort general manager Mike Stanton said, “The bathrooms that we built 25 years ago have survived this era very well, because they were designed in the fashion of the Victorian era, with freestanding vanities so they never actually dated design-wise.
“The rooms have received soft furnishing upgrades over the years, but the time was right to upgrade the hardware including bathrooms, and to add some luxury modern day touches, to the rooms which at between 32-60 sq metres are considered over-sized guest rooms,” he said.
Features in the new bathrooms include rain showers, back-lit LED mirrors with demist, under bench night light, and an illuminated and magnifying shaving/make up mirror.
In the rooms, a MediaHub offers an all-in-one audio/video connectivity panel that enables guests to easily and simply connect a wide range of consumer electronics devices to a HDTV. This active connectivity panel provides hassle-free connectivity for laptops, digital/video cameras, Blu-ray™ or DVD players and game consoles to HDTVs. The automatic switching functionality provides ease of use, while the USB port adds a convenient way to charge portable electronics
Muscat’s Restaurant has also received a facelift, and has launched a new winter menu, featuring local produce, Swan Valley wines and craft beers.
The conference facilities and the lobby and public and breakout spaces, have also been upgraded, and the addition of the Keishi Day Spa in January 2014 completes the resort’s transformation.
All bookings taken for stays from June 30 onwards will be accommodated in a new room.
