If you need a lavish long weekend escape, look no further than a cheeky stay at The InterContinental Perth City Centre where you’ll be surrounded by vibrant restaurants and bars right in the heart of Perth’s bustling King Street City Precinct.

The InterContinental name has become synonymous with the ultimate five-star luxury and service, so whether you’re looking to explore the endless wonders of the city or simply take some time to rewind and recharge, there is a range of fabulous dining options that will have you feeling completely spoilt, pampered and recharged.

Here are some of the ways to make the most of your luxe Perth long weekend.

Live The Suite Life

To get that instant luxury feeling, we can't go past living it up in a soft robe at an uber-luxe hotel like The InterContinental Perth City Centre. In the suites at this hotel, you'll have access to 24-hour room service, sleep on the comfiest beds and have some of the city's best dining experiences at your fingertips. The hardest part of your stay will be selecting which one of the incredible rooms to snooze in. The interiors have been designed by renowned architecture firm, Woods Bagot—so you know you're in for a treat. Kick back on the window chaise lounge,  enjoy the hotel's opulent Byredo bathroom amenities and soak up the stunning artwork by local artists—all without leaving your hotel suite.

Drink And Dine Out

Looking to find out the hottest spots around Perth City for a tipple? You’re in luck. The hotel is located right in the heart of the CBD, meaning there’s an endless slew of both causal and luxe dining experiences on offer within a few minutes walk. Grab yourself a drink from moody Wolf Lane bar or vibrant Cheeky Sparrow both hidden in a secret laneway surrounded by fabulous local street art both around the corner before heading to iconic character-filled heritage-listed Royal Hotel for a meal or go full fine dining down by the river with a tantalising degustation at Balthazar

Stay In

If you’re looking to stay in, the hotel boasts three fabulous restaurants and bars within the building—Heno & Rey the colourful, vibrant and deliciously authentic love note to Spanish cuisine and culture sitting pretty looking out to the passersby of glamorous King Street, Ascua the refined dining experience where celebrated Director of Restaurants & Bars, Andrew McGie, brings theatrical wood-fired, Spanish cooking methods to life and last but not least, the gorgeous Loft Lounge and Bar that sits pretty up on the terrace overlooking Hay Street, with tonnes of very grammable cocktails and small bites to enjoy. 

Treat Yourself

If you’re keen to see a piece of WA culture, the charming His Majesty’s Theatre is right next door and has a constant string of wonderful events and shows for you to enjoy before popping into their bar for a nightcap. And if you simply want to recharge those tired batteries, you’ve got Bodhi or Endota Spa not far away for full body treatments that will leave you soaring.

So what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present to book yourself in for a dreamy stay at InterContinental Perth City Centre, so secure yourself a booking pronto and start planning your next divine culture-filled Perth escape.
