Sleep amongst Botanics
We've pulled together a new ‘Meet the Creatives’ collaboration with Bonnie and Neil, the popular Australian design team, for a sophisticated and spirited summertime experience
Our team have worked with Bonnie and Neil and the Hunted Yard to create an enchanting in-room display that allows guest to experience a blossoming, sensory experience that welcomes in the festive summer spirit. Guests can stay in this enchanting room throughout summer with a package that also includes full breakfast, Archie Rose Summer Cocktails and a take-away gift of luxurious botanically-based items from Australian natural skincare brand Biology.

Bonnie and Neil ‘take over‘ a West Hotel room, creating a lush, immersive experience utilising a curated selection of their hand-crafted botanical motif items. An explosion of colour and panache, it will include a mix of artwork, furniture pieces, cushions, throws and other room accents.
As part of the vibrant, highly photogenic display, an oversized floral arbour will suspend above the bed and cascade down the headboard – guests will literally ‘sleep amongst
the botanics’. The floral creation has been created by floral stylists, The Hunted Yard, a dramatic centrepiece that adds the final botanical finesse to the room.
Guests will have the opportunity to ‘shop the look’ for all Bonnie and Neil items, with an exclusive West Hotel incentive code offered for any summer purchases that tickle their fancy as part of the botanical activation.
As final sensory touches, the room takeover will gift guests with luxurious, botanically-based items from Australian natural skincare brand, Biology. A diffuser will be provided in each room, should guests like to excite their smell with a light, summer-fresh natural scent from Air Aroma.
West Hotel is extending its summer spirit throughout the hotel. Complementing the botanical room-takeover, the hotel’s Solander Dining and Bar is offering a ‘Summer of Gin’ bar menu alongside its full menu. This special bar menu has been inspired by Sydney distiller, Archie Rose’s summer gin blends. Guests can choose from two new gin-based cocktails and a selection of gin-infused bar snack menu items – a casual option for those wanting a cocktail and bite to eat, before exploring nearby Barangaroo during balmy Sydney nights.
The ‘Sleep Amongst Botanics’ accommodation package is available to guests over the summer holiday period, from December 2018 to mid-January 2019. Priced from $332 per night, the package includes:
Overnight accommodation for two in the Bonnie and Neil-styled Banksia Deluxe Room
Full breakfast at Solander Dining for two
Two ‘Summer of Gin’ Archie Rose cocktails and bar snack menu items at Solander Dining
