Brisbane’s Best Staycation Destination

Hands up if you’re in need of a holiday! Was that a sea of hands we saw? Yep – we thought so!

The last few years have been a challenge (… to say the least) so, it’s about time we treated ourselves! And we’ve got even better news. You can pretty much stay in your own backyard!

Every inch of the Emporium Hotel South Bank brings to life a luxury escape, with the hotel setting the standard as the suburb’s first 5-star accommodation. From the moment the staff greet you in the lobby, you will instantly slip into holiday mode. Say bye bye to domestic duties and hello to staycay-bliss!

There is plenty to do at the Emporium Hotel so we thought we’d make life easier for you and plan an itinerary. After all, who wants to make decisions on their holiday?

First things first – checking into your luxury suite. There are a range of fabulous accommodation options to choose from and no matter which one you choose, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a peaceful retreat.

Once you’re ready to explore, we’d suggest taking the lift to level 21. As soon as the elevator bell “dings” and the doors open, you’ll instantly see why this is one of the major drawcards of staying here! The Terrace Rooftop Bar is a trendy, subtropical oasis with some of the best views in Brisbane. And the drinks? Well, they’re just as jaw-dropping. Make sure you bring your togs because just next door is the Emporium’s infinity pool – aka. “one of the coolest places to hang out in the River City”.

Sunkissed and scrubbed up – you’re ready for dinner! Signature Restaurant shines a light on local produce, whilst pushing culinary boundaries. The restaurant also has its own library but it’s not what you think! ‘The Library” is a curated collection of around 6,000 local and international wines. These unique drops represent more than 400 village wine producers, which Owner, Anthony John has curated over 20 years.

To keep the good times rolling, follow the soft echoes of jazz to the Piano Bar. This fabulous bar is a nod to the golden era of the 1920’s. Think old world glamour with a modern twist. Guests can choose from the extensive beverage range, whilst enjoying the smooth sound of live jazz.

After a delightful dinner and some drinks, it’s time to curl up into your comfy bed and rest your weary head. See you in the morning, sunshine!

As the sun rises, so do the golden pillows of croissants. Belle Epoque is the sweetest little scene straight out of Paris, all that’s missing is the Eifel Tower. The patisserie pays homage to the beauty of French traditions from their delicious food to exceptional quality.

For the rest of the day, why not hire a Poolside Cabana for half the day? Inclusive of your hire is a freshly sliced fruit platter, charcuterie board, a Terrace tasting platter for two, pitcher of mocktail, two cocktails, unlimited still or sparkling water and sunscreen. Sounds like the perfect afternoon to us!

Sadly, all good things do come to an end but we’re sure it won’t be long until you return for another luxury escape! Head to Emporium Hotel South Bank to book your Brisbane break at!
