The Langham, Melbourne
You'll struggle to find a better luxury hotel in the city — these guys do absolutely everything to the highest standards.

If you're looking for one of the top pools with a view, then it has to be The Langham's. From atop one of Melbourne's best hotels, you have uninterrupted views across the Yarra River, over Flinders Street Station and the rest of Melbourne's cityscape. Swim a few laps, laze on the balcony and have the staff attend to your every need. It's pure cosmopolitan luxury.
The Langham is also home to one of Melbourne's best spas. The massage menu heroes traditional Chinese techniques, while multi-treatment options combine things like body wraps, plumping facials and mud masks.
You can even take their online quiz to determine which of their five core elements you resonate most with, which can then be applied to your Chuan treatment. Our element is wood, in case you were asking.
But it isn't all about the pool and spa. Each of the 387 rooms are old-school opulent and offer up a range of views – our pick being over the river, of course. And if you're looking to go all out, try one of their balcony suites — then you'll discover what true luxury really looks like.
And lastly, no stay at The Langham is complete without feasting at Melba, their all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant.
