A beachside retreat that comes with unlimited champagne on tap
Veuve Clicquot isn’t just about bubbly. The French champagne savants are entering new territory in the form of a five-star accommodation. The brand recently unveiled its new beachside hotel pop-up in Noosa, Australia, set to open this autumn.
The temporary luxe accommodation has only five suites, each of which offers roughly 45 square metres of space. All the rooms have a private balcony draped with Clicquot-themed table and chairs. When you arrive at the pop-up after being chauffeured in a private Tesla transfer, you’ll receive a welcome pack with a swag bag of Veuve Clicquot beach-ready essentials: a beach tote and towel to take to the nearby Sunshine Beach, as well as a solaire notebook to help remember your getaway.
Outside of your room, you can socialise in the Clicquot-themed lounge for a game of pool and stop by the fully stocked champagne bar. When you’re feeling peckish, you’ll be able to order from a menu you create with the help of a personal chef. If you were to—God forbid—run out of bubbly, don’t fret—there is a special phone for a 24-hour, on-demand concierge to deliver complimentary Veuve Clicquot to your room door.
Guests can also take advantage of a full gym, complimentary yoga and surf lessons with—what else—Veuve Clicquot surfboards. You can also catch a movie in the private screening room or book a treatment at the on-site spa, if you’re in need of a little rejuvenation.
“Hotel Clicquot Noosa is the ultimate place to live the Veuve Clicquot life. From the moment you step over the threshold of Hotel Clicquot, you enter a world of luxury with a Clicquot yellow twist,” Nicola Ho, a Veuve Clicquot executive, wrote via email to Robb Report. “From a simple glass of Clicquot while taking in the panoramic ocean views to sunrise surfing on Clicquot surfboards and a vintage speed boat picnic journey, life is never ordinary at Hotel Clicquot. It’s a ‘solaire’ experience filled with sunshine, luxury and, of course, exceptional champagne.”
The pop-up hotel will only be open for short time, from 3 to 13 November. However, there is some hope that the glitzy pop-up will make an international tour. The maison told Robb Report that there are discussions about opening the pop-up in other countries, though no definite plans have been made yet.
Interested travellers will have to wait a little longer before booking. While the Veuve Clicquot website says the hotel is currently sold out, there will be an additional drop of rooms sometime this week, according the brand. Rates start at AU$7,000 (S$6,500) for a two-night package for two. Guests can also pay an additional AU$1,000 (S$933) to add on a vintage speed boat tour and a private picnic.
