About United Places
A luxurious place of understated exclusivity, United Places Botanical Gardens brings together 12 spacious suites. A reimagining of the boutique hotel offering, it’s made for discerning individuals who appreciate a connection to local creativity, knowledge and excellence. United Places combines exceptional contemporary design with effortless comfort and authentic craftsmanship.
Dedicated to making each guest’s stay unique, we offer the highest possible level of service and amenity. A bespoke sanctuary providing a feeling of comfort, warmth and security, United Places Botanical Gardens is for those who aspire to the highest ideals of sensibility and aesthetic distinction.
The hotel experience begins with striking architecture. A place where minimalist, textured planes give way to light-filled interiors and a sculpted sense of space. To pass through the secluded gateway – opposite Melbourne’s renowned Royal Botanic Gardens – is to enter a place of sophistication and generous hospitality. Personalising your stay, a butler, on call around the clock, welcomes you.
At street level, Matilda – a wood-fired restaurant created by leading chef Scott Pickett – provides a place of warmth and community. Guests also receive priority bookings in the restaurant or may select in-room dining. With the table set by the butler, and your choice of champagne, wine and food, this is a full restaurant experience in the privacy of your suite.
In our bountifully proportioned suites, you will appreciate the exceptional design and the tactile qualities of the finest furnishings and finishes. Here, richly textured velvet curtains shroud the bedrooms in a sense of revelation while floor-to-ceiling windows frame rustling trees or the dramatic city skyline. It’s your private haven amid a bustling city.
Situated in the centre of South Yarra, opposite the lush parklands of the Royal Botanic Gardens, United Places Botanic Gardens is part of a vibrant community of hospitality, craftsmanship and inspiration. Bringing you the best of this, United Places is a collaboration with exceptional creatives across a range of disciplines.
It begins with the fundamentals – architecture and interiors by leading multidisciplinary practice Carr Design Group, with concept and brand narrative from designers Projects of Imagination. And it’s perfected by the finishing touches – like bathroom products by Le Labo and organic Turkish cotton throws by Loom Towels. Every touch point is curated for quality and distinction.
Our partnership with chef Scott Pickett and his newest restaurant, Matilda, is built on shared ideals of authenticity, community and locally sourced quality. Like Scott, we aspire to support the talented makers and producers around us. Beyond our doors though, Melbourne is a city of incredible restaurants – and South Yarra is a food lover’s paradise, replete with established classics and surprising new bars.
Whatever your interests, to take on Melbourne like a local, just ask your butler for a personalised recommendation.
