A year after the inaugural Hotel Clicquot popped up in Byron Bay, Veuve Clicquot has swooped up the coast to take the label’s luxurious, $3,500-a-night accommodation experience up to Sunshine Beach, Queensland – right on the fringe of Noosa. Considering the success of the Byron Bay iteration, Hotel Clicquot Noosa is looking like another easy sell-out for the French Champagne house, which has propped the specially designed hotel up in a coastal location for a grand total of just ten days.
Of course, the design of this hotel is aggressively coloured in the instantly recognisable white and yellow strips so emblematic of the historic Maison. It just so happens to be the ideal reflection of summer as well, which should help keep those La Niña-induced blues at bay while you’re maxing and relaxing for two nights curated by the label. Going beyond just high-end accommodation with a full package of activities, gourmet food and the three primary expressions of Veuve Clicquot – Yellow Label, Rose and Rich.
There are two packages being offered to anyone who wants to spend some time at Hotel Clicquot Noosa. The first is the standard $7,000 package which nets you two nights for two people with a series of guest chefs, your own sommelier and both airport and local transfers taken care of by a Tesla.
Each guest also gets a one-hour spa treatment while each night ends with a different gourmet dining experience. On the first night, you’ll get a chef’s table experience around a fire pit with locally caught seafood. On the second, Byron Bay chef David Moyle will helm a “garden gastronomy” degustation menu paired with La Grande Dame vintages to cap your experience at Hotel Clicquot Noosa.
Throughout the stay, there is a large array of typical Noosa experiences to chew through. Think sunrise yoga, surfing lessons, private river cruises or, closer to home, sessions at the in-house cinema.
The second package is a bit of a step-up. At $8,000 for two nights, you’ll get all the above in addition to a cruise along Noosa River on a kitted-out mahogany speedboat – dubbed the Clicquot Dreamboat – ending in a bespoke picnic flowing with Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé.
If you’ve got money to burn and spending two nights being pampered by Veuve Clicquot sounds good to you then note that Hotel Clicquot is only available for bookings between November 3rd and November 13th of 2022. The first allocation of dates seems to have already been booked out but the official website has opened expressions of interest for when more dates become available.
