Hotel Sorrento unveils its stunning transformation into a world-class luxury resort destination. With the introduction of a 30-meter pool, 13 exquisite Sunset Suites, and a tranquil day spa, Hotel Sorrento on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula is set to captivate guests with its refined elegance and unparalleled amenities.

The 13 new Sunset Suites, thoughtfully designed with guest experience in mind, epitomize luxury and tranquility. Inspired by the natural surroundings, these suites feature raw materials like limestone, travertine, and timber. Expansive windows offer breathtaking views of the lush landscape, creating a sense of harmony with nature. Each suite is adorned with custom-designed Jardan furniture, providing a minimalist ambiance that encourages relaxation. Hunter Lab amenities and a private outdoor terrace with a freestanding marble bath complete the luxurious experience, providing the perfect sanctuary to unwind and embrace serenity.

Hotel Sorrento has stocked each suite with exclusive plush robes and towels made by Melbourne-based Hommey, ensuring guests’ comfort and indulgence. The minibar is filled with delightful options, including seltzers, St Andrew’s Strapper Lager, Aix Rosè, Paringa Estate Pinot Noir, and Louis Roederer champagne.

To start the day on a delicious note, breakfast is included, offering healthy options such as coconut chia pudding, chili scrambled eggs, and egg and bacon rolls.

Hotel Sorrento collaborated closely with the Pitt family, Six Degrees Architecture, and Jack Merlo Landscapes to bring this contemporary oasis to life.

Mark Healy, Director of Six Degrees, shared, “The design embraces a clean and simple elegance, leaving guests to relax in a world-class wellness and day spa facility and to create fun poolside memories.”

Overlooking Port Phillip Bay, the 30-meter lap pool is nestled amidst lush greenery and beautiful olive trees. Designed by Jack Merlo Landscapes, the travertine terrace and custom-made Sorrento sun lounges by Grazia offer a calming oasis away from the bustling energy of Sorrento’s main street. Guests can indulge in the poolside menu, which features delectable dishes like kingfish ceviche, salt and vinegar zucchini chips with dashi yoghurt, and poached prawn club sandwiches. An array of beverages, including espresso martinis, strawberry daiquiri slushies, Victorian wines and beers, and iced tea, complete the poolside experience.

Just a few steps away from the pool terrace, guests will discover Marlo Spa, an oasis of rejuvenation. Sorrento locals Marlo Johnston and her team have curated a bespoke treatment menu that caters to all guests’ needs. From soothing massages grounded in Ayurvedic principles to rejuvenating fire and ice therapies, the spa utilizes a range of high-quality products, including The Beauty Chef, Biodroga, and Meeka.

The newly introduced Sunset Suites start at $550 per night and complement Hotel Sorrento’s existing collection of recently refurbished rooms. Whether guests choose the Pool Terrace rooms with their travertine and timber floors and stunning views, the Classic rooms in the original limestone building with balconies overlooking the bay and town, or the On the Hill studios with their relaxed luxury, gas log fireplaces, and private balconies, every room offers ample space to unwind and rejuvenate.
