Towering Achievement

Crown Towers Perth, Perth, Australia • YWS

The most luxurious accommodations at the new Crown Towers Perth will set you back a bit.
    
“You’re looking at about $20,000 to stay at the top villa,” Crown Ltd. CEO Barry Felstead says of the lavish six-star hotel tower, on track for a December opening.
    
Crown Towers aspires to be not just the finest hotel in Perth, but the tallest in the city and the most opulent in Australia. The $568 million, 25-story structure will add 500 new rooms to the complex, for a total of 1,200.
    
Amenities will include a new VIP gaming hall, a full-service spa, a business center and convention complex, and abundant retail and dining options. The latter will include internationally renowned brands such as Nobu, Silks, Bistro Guillaume, Rockpool and Epicurean.
    
YWS Design, which is the lead building designer of Crown Towers Perth, is leading more than 20 design and consulting firms in delivering this world class integrated resort. The look is truly luxe. The tower’s architectural aesthetic is one of contemporary elegance. It all starts at the dramatic podium. Arriving guests are greeted by a series of seven-meter-high glass wall panels and stone columns. The distinctive aesthetic continues in the lobby, where an atrium, skylights and expanses of glass bring in abundant light and picturesque views.
    
A multi-tiered pool area will be a relaxing retreat for guests, who can enjoy luxury cabanas and a cocktail bar surrounding a circular infinity pool. Large outdoor patios and cantilevered roofs will offer shade and protection.
    
With event spaces such as the Great Lawn and the palatial Crown Ballroom, Crown Towers Perth “will surpass even the most seasoned traveler’s expectations,” according to a statement from Crown.
    
Felstead goes a step further, saying the hotel tower overlooking the Swan River will be “the best hotel in Australia, there is no doubt.
    
“It will be absolutely magnificent.”
