Blissful bubbles: Melbourne hotels with in-room hot tubs

With it's buzzing nightlife, colourful culture and exciting foodie scene, Melbourne is always a top spot for a weekend break.

There are plenty of fabulous hotels in the city, but when you’re looking to make your city escape a luxurious occasion to remember, nothing beats an in-room Jacuzzi.

Flit to a fancy Fitzroy Gardens hotel and soak with your special someone in a deep jetted tub. Overlook the Yarra River from a glamorous suite in Southbank, or settle into a secluded spa room in the city’s leafy south. Melbourne boasts a bounty of hotels with private hot tubs, so cast your eyes over six of our favourites and make those wistful daydreams a blissful, bubbly reality.

Downtown digs with all the luxe extras

If you think the location of Treasury on Collinis impressive, wait until you see the rooms. This CBD hotel’s bursting with elegantly finished spaces, though it’s the Heritage King Loft Apartment that really dazzles. From the split-level loft-style design to decadent amenities like unlimited Netflix and a private spa bath, this spacious apartment’s got everything you need for an indulgent weekend in Melbourne.

Wake in the soft folds of your king bed and use your fully equipped kitchenette to prepare a satiating breakfast. If you prefer not to cook, migrate to the hotel’s restaurant and load up on fluffy pancakes, flaky pastries or bacon and eggs. You’re a stone’s throw from Federation Square, so you can check out the precinct’s key hotspots – like the Aboriginal-run Koorie Heritage Trust – before a stroll along the Yarra.

Make sure you’re back at the hotel to catch a complimentary drink in the Treasured Guest Lounge – a daily treat, available between 4 and 6 p.m. As night falls, settle into your tranquil room for a long and lazy soak in your private hot tub followed by movies and snacks from the mini-fridge.

Riverside retreat with a double spa bath built for couples

Check into The Langham, and you might just think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Bag a One-Bedroom Suite and you can get your pampering game on right in-room – simply slip into your 2-person spa bath and enjoy a romantic soak with your special someone.

You’re right on the Southbank Promenade here, an ideal spot for sunlit strolls along the river. Drop by leafy King’s Domain Gardens for some quiet time beneath the shady trees, or take a slow cruise to see the city from a different perspective. On your return to the hotel, stop in at Melba Restaurant to share a plate of fresh oysters and king prawns before tucking into tandoori-spiced swordfish or grass-fed sirloin from the grill.

With incredible views over Melbourne’s skyline, sundowner drinks in your room are a must. Call room service and order a bottle of champagne, then pop the cork and toast your indulgent getaway as you watch the stars come out over the city.

High-end spa hotel with an in-suite fireplace and Jacuzzi

Parliament Place is a fittingly highbrow address for the five-star Park Hyatt Melbourne. Overlooking Fitzroy Gardens, the suites here are swathed in plush fabrics and come with comforts like Nespresso machines and Bose Bluetooth speakers. Kick back in the Ambassador Suite next to the cosy fireplace, with a handy kitchenette and blissfully bubbling spa bath at your disposal.

After unwinding in your own Jacuzzi, take your pampering to the next level with a treatment or two in the hotel’s Park Club Health and Day Spa. Follow a tailored massage with a coffee and kelp contour wrap, and you’ll be properly refreshed for an afternoon out on the town.

As for fine dining worthy of a city break, the hotel’s got heaps of gastronomic delights. Seek out The Lounge for a sophisticated high tea of finger sandwiches and sugar-laced petit fours. After dark, slip away to art deco-inspired radii Restaurant & Bar for pork loin with rainbow beets, or a cheese board accompanied by muscatels and smoky Shiraz.

Sumptuous spa suites in Melbourne’s leafy south

A whisper away from the Royal Botanic Gardens, the five-star Royce Hotel is a quirky art deco dream. Blending old-world charm, edgy architecture and modern interiors, this St Kilda Road spot’s a heart stealer. Plus, a one-bedroom Premier Spa Suite comes with panoramic skyline views and a deep-soaking spa bath ready to envelop you in a mountain of bubbles.

Order an in-room massage to make the most of your relaxation time, or venture out to explore the local area on foot. The National Gallery of Victoria is a 20-minute walk away, while Albert Park Lake (15 minutes south) is a great spot for sailing and soaking up the sun.

Building off Melbourne’s reputation as a foodie destination, the hotel’s got two lavish eateries of its own. Tuck into an avo-loaded macro bowl over weekend brunch at Dish, or treat your sweet tooth to caramelised brioche French toast. Later on, happy hour drinks in The Amberoom will whet your appetite for a mouthwatering dinner of spaghettini with chilli tiger prawns and blue swimmer crab.

Glitz, glamour and a private Jacuzzi suite in Melbourne's CBD

If Melbourne’s CBD is a treasure chest of fun finds, the Stamford Plaza Melbourne is one seriously shiny gem. High up on the top floor, the hotel’s Presidential Suite wraps guests in refined luxury. You’ll have a fully equipped kitchen and separate dining space with seating for six, as well as vast windows that showcase Melbourne’s glittering skyline. Works of art cover the silk walls, and one of the marble bathrooms (did we mention there are two?) has a swoon-worthy spa bath.

The hotel is at the ‘Paris end’ of Little Collins Street, so expect a bit of glam in your surroundings – think designer storefronts, cool coffee shops and hipster drinking dens. You’re a 17-minute walk from Melbourne Museum, where you’ll find the innovative Forest Gallery and a 20-minute walk from the kaleidoscopic stalls of Queen Victoria Market.

If you’d prefer to stay and play at the hotel, spend some time splashing in the pool before working up a sweat in the well-equipped fitness and wellness centre. At the relaxed dining room, Harry’s Restaurant, you can feast on Singaporean fish curry or slow-braised lamb shank followed by a slice of chocolate gianduja dessert.
