The Ritz-Carlton has announced the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Perth in the capital city of Western Australia.

The opening of the hotel marks Ritz-Carlton’s 100th property and the luxury brand’s return to Australia.

The new luxury hotel is part of the landmark development at Elizabeth Quay, overlooking the Swan River and Kings Park.

The hotel said the design of the luxury new property draws inspiration from the natural beauty of Western Australia, and features a palette of earth tones, as well as “the use of luxurious natural materials”. For example, the 13-metre high ceilings and a chandelier in the lobby echo the cascading waters of the Karijini gorges in the state’s Pilbara region.

The hotel offers 205 guestrooms, including 19 suites. The accommodation features views of either the city skyline or the Swan River, Frette bedlinens, and toiletries by British luxury brand Aspery.
