Have we found Australia’s most exclusive hotel? This is a hip hotel where you are the only guest!
Here's a hotel which was designed for rock stars, a retreat for international visitors involved in the arts and music and well-heeled wannabes. The unassuming façade gives no indication that this was once an old, suburban terrace. It is now a single suite hotel and recording studio and that's exclusive.
The suite has its own plunge pool, sundeck and fully-equipped gym. A glass wall with cascading water separates the suite from moogbar, a very trendy cocktail bar. Guests can lay down a few tracks in the private recording studio or program their own digital compilation which can be enjoyed everywhere, even in the pool, thanks to underwater speakers.
The suite has rotating plasma television screens, his-and-hers bathrooms, retro lights and a giant, red Edra Flap sofa.
The master bedroom occupies one side of the mezzanine floor and the other side is dominated by an enormous Lavasca bath made from crushed almonds set in resin.
Pride of place goes to the plunge pool. For those wanting an aquatic workout, it is fitted with powerful jets. There is a poolside screen, separate spa for chilling out or enjoying a late night party. Twenty-four-hour butler service is available, as is a personal assistant, masseuse, personal trainer, record producer and chauffeured Jaguar XJR 100.
The restaurant and bar have been overseen by chef Mark Best, one of few to have been awarded three hats in The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2004. The food philosophy is based on creativity and experimentation. The menu constantly evolves and already there is a return clientele. Tapas and bar snacks are available to accompany fine wines and delicious cocktails.
mooghotel costs $990 a night. City Bliss Weekend packages cost $1990 and includes 3 nights accommodation (for the price of 2 nights) for 2 people, luxury transfers in the mooghotel’s Jaguar XJR100, and gourmet continental breakfasts each morning, & dinner for 2 at ‘moog wine + food’, champagne on arrival. Recording studio is extra but they offer studio/suite deals upon request. Music producer available on request.
