Just off the bustling St Georges Mall precinct, Gorgeous George is a boutique hotel that’s as, er, gorgeous as it says it is.
One of 300 privately owned hotels worldwide in the Design Hotels stable, it’s no surprise that incredible design is around every corner, but it’s the sumptuous furnishings, attentive service, and vibey sixth-floor rooftop that elevates this stylish spot to the next level.
Housed in an exquisite heritage building that has since been carefully renovated, the hotel has been stylishly decorated, with the works of some of the city’s hottest design talents adding artistic flair. Artists Lucie de Moyencourt, David Krynauw, and David Brits are just some of the local designers whose work is on display at GG.
The 32 beautifully decorated rooms deliciously blend plush Victorian-style furniture with chic lighting and hand-painted wall art – creating the perfect haven to rest your head after a night of decadence at Gigi – the hotel’s rooftop bar and restaurant.
It’s here where the “Hello, Gorgeous!” welcome from the friendly hostess as you enter tees you up for an evening of fun – which includes a Leighton Rathbone-mixed cocktail on arrival, a three-course meal from chef Guy Bennett’s delectable menu, and wine – all against a backdrop of eyewateringly stunning cityscapes.
Gigi’s stylish interiors spill onto a terracotta-tiled pool deck, the ideal place to enjoy starters of tuna tataki; gazpacho or spicy lamb ribs, followed by risotto with greens; duck-leg confit or slow-braised beef flat rib. Whether you opt for churros; chocolate fondant or the baked cheesecake, you won’t have far to walk to before your head is on the pillow of your sumptuous suite.
Sounds like heaven…
