Luxury by the sea: Inside the newly-opened InterContinental Sorrento

IHG has introduced a luxury seaside vacation resort in Victoria’s popular tourist hotspot of Sorrento on the Mornington Pensinsula.

InterContinental Sorrento Mornington Peninsula normally takes centre stage at The Continental – an 1875 heritage internet site that has been transformed into a present day food, beverage and wellness vacation spot.

The lodge, which opened on August 1, joins IHG’s developing Luxury and Life style Collection.

“We are in a person of the most thrilling periods of growth and transformation across our Luxury and Way of living portfolio,” said IHG Managing Director, Australasia and Pacific, Matthew Tripolone.

“The opening of InterContinental Sorrento Mornington Peninsula is fantastic milestone in our vision to provide the InterContinental Existence to the world’s most sought-soon after destinations, and we have no doubt that the brand name-new activities will provide a unforgettable keep for both of those locals and intercontinental visitors alike.”

Made by Woods Bagot as a modernised coastal retreat, the home celebrates the Victorian and Deco eras of the neighborhood region with primary elements very carefully restored, and old images of Mornington Peninsula seaside get-togethers from the 19th and 20th century among the the intensive art collection.  

There are 108 rooms and suites throughout the initial limestone making and in a recently created wing that feature non-public outside terraces, and penthouses will be introduced later in the calendar year.

The house also functions a visitor-only pool deck, 24-hour Health and fitness Centre, two eating places – like seafood restaurant Audrey’s by acclaimed Melbourne chef Scott Pickett – a beer backyard, front bar, and speakeasy location.

The restored Grand Ballroom will be used for private occasions, and the resort spa, Aurora Spa and Bathhouse, will open up later this year within a thermal bathhouse and wellness centre.

“Sorrento’s heritage as a place to escape to has been reimagined with a really serious dash of glamour and an array of methods to unwind, rejoice and retreat, but we can’t wait around to welcome our friends from both equally close to and much with our service,” stated InterContinental Sorrento Mornington Peninsula Basic Manager, Adam McDonald.
