After more than three years’ work, Como The Treasury and the surrounding State Buildings precinct opened last week, jolting to life a once-derelict corner of the CBD.
Spanning three historic buildings, the four-storey hotel is a study in understated elegance. Designed by influential Perth-born, Singapore-based architect Kerry Hill, known for his work with Aman resorts, The Treasury’s 48 guestrooms feature a muted palette, freestanding baths and twin travertine basins. With an average floor space of 70 square metres, some with balconies, they’re among the biggest hotel rooms in the country. Bespoke fixtures feature throughout the property, from bauble light fittings designed by Flynn Talbot to the hotel’s custom-made Eucalypt crockery.
There’s also a signature Como Shambhala day spa, a 20-metre indoor pool, a gym, and two dining spaces: ground-floor Post is open for all-day dining, while the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Wildflower, is due to open in mid-November. The hotel’s executive chef is WA-born Jed Gerrard, formerly of Tetsuya’s and more recently Black by Ezard in Sydney.
Rooms at the new hotel start from $595.
