Sapphire Shores Luxury Retreat is a boutique hotel and retreat located on the south-east corner of the bay of Port Phillip on the Mornington Peninsula. It’s a 90 minute drive from Melbourne International Airport. Situated on a hill, it faces west offering views into the bay. Please note: this is an adults only site.
On the outside, this hotel is painted a pale blue and white that evokes the water of the nearby bay. Inside, the suites draw upon a similar pale blue, white and other neutral colours creating serene spaces. Natural wood furniture adds a little contrast. But each day you’ll see a splash of red from the sunset.
This is a small retreat, not a city centre hotel. Instead, the suites benefit from a balcony, double spa bath, air conditioning/heating, Wi-Fi, and a phone charging dock. Coffee and tea are available, as is a port nightcap. A private garden deck is available and the suites have a private entrance.
If you want to dine, then the town of Mornington is a 5 – 10 minute drive up the coast. You can also find beaches there. Or, if you’re looking to stay active, Mount Martha Park is less than a mile away. There are also lots of wineries available to find something delicious to take back.
