JACKALOPE

 

Located on a private vineyard in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula’s wine region, Jackalope sets a new benchmark in Australian luxury boutique hotel design and service, offering a new-age approach to staying in the blissful Victorian coastline. 


A personal project of the 30-year of Melbourne based entrepreneur, Louis Li, the hotel guides guests on a sensory journey of art, design and dining experiences, delivering a decadent interplay between the ideal and surreal. 


Conceived in partnership with some of Australia’s preeminent creatives—including architectural firm Carr Design Group and multi-disciplinary studio, Fabio Ongarato Design—Li has produced an icon of contemporary design.“Whether a luxury traveller prefers a scenic destination, food, art, evocative design, or to connect with their surrounds, Jackalope sits at the forefront of emerging and established hotel trends,” saysJackalope’s Group General Manager Tracy Atherton, formerly of Aman Resorts and Hotel Hotel.


Jackalope’s 45 rooms comprise 38 sqm ‘Terrace’ or ‘Vineyard View’ categories through to 85 sqm‘Lairs’. Floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces connect guests to the rural surrounds and bathrooms boast rain showers, double vanities, bath products made exclusively for the hotel by Hunter Lab, rain showers, and the option of deep-soak, black Japanese tubs.

With such an array of local wineries and the iconic peninsular with Portsea and Sorrento a short drive away, Jackalope is like nothing Australia has seen before. A new standard of accommodation has been created promising an experience to remember.
