Best luxury hotels in Brisbane 2022

Queensland’s capital is a thriving Australian coastal and river city, which also serves as a jumping-off point for visitors planning trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Gold Coast and theme parks. A new city, by European architectural standards, with some old-world areas, the city offers purpose-built hotels designed with cutting-edge comfort and technology and state-of-the-art luxury features. The arts and dining scene is world-class, as is the shopping – and don’t miss GOMA, its world-class art gallery.

The Cali hotel

This 175-room urban lifestyle resort may be all the hotel modern, but it packs plenty of nods to mid-century style. Reserve an 88-foot poolside cabana (which has a glitzy American feel) to dine or sunbathe during the day, champagne in hand. And ask for one of the “pink” rooms for a view of that terrace — all rooms come with Bluetooth speakers, minibars, and blackout curtains, with connecting and accessible spaces available. Enjoy a moussaka or mezze at the Calile’s Greek restaurant, Hellenika, then finish your evening with cocktails at the Lobby Bar.

West Brisbane

Just four years old, this W was the first five-star establishment to arrive in Brisbane City in two decades. Located by the sea in the Central Business District, it lights up its pocket of water, with 312 rooms and suites benefiting from this privileged position. The region’s heritage played a role in the design, adding a sense of place to W’s glamorous staples — like state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins Bluetooth speakers in the bedroom, Netflix, and cocktail minibars. Bold design is found throughout, especially in the indoor pool, where the ceiling and floor reflect a funky zebra pattern. An all-day dining venue is complemented by a clubby bar and the WET Terrace, where barbies are prepared while you swim and sunbathe.
