For the second year in a row, the ultra-luxurious Hotel Clicquot has taken over the stunning Sunshine Beach in Noosa. The re-emergence of the ultra-luxury installation not only heralds the beginning of summer but also confirms our sneaking suspicions that drinking Champagne by the pool is a near-unrivalled pastime. From the moment your Clicquot-branded Telsa picks you up to whisk you off to the airport, it’s officially time to enter holiday mode. The Hotel Clicquot offers a unique experience where guests can enjoy the ‘solaire’ lifestyle of the rich and famous. Guests will be welcomed for two or three unforgettable nights full of relaxation, adventure, gourmet food and free-flowing Clicquot from the Reims-based icon.
The Hotel Clicquot debuted in Byron Bay in 2021, before successfully relocating to Noosa last year where it looks to have found its annual home. Appearing like a mirage on a hot summer’s day, this transient hotel takes over a state-of-the-art architectural wonder that sits beachside on the edge of Noosa National Park. The signature Clicquot yellow design touches throughout the hotel are indicative of the attention to detail offered to every element from the hyper-local menus and eco-friendly solar-powered rooms to the 24-hour butler service and my favourite, the ‘Click for Clicquot’ rotary phone in the bedroom.
Following last year’s popularity, Clicquot has extended this year’s offering from two nights to three along with a substantial price increase. The two-night package is $10,000 whilst the three-night package commands $15,000 per couple (an increase from the two-night $7,000 per couple 2022 price tag).
Hotel Clicquot is all about the pleasure of living in the moment and knowing you have nowhere to be other than relaxing poolside under a Clicquot umbrella, having a dip in the magnesium-enriched pool, lying on the massage table or recharging in the sauna. With a private chef at your beck and call, you will be treated to poolside breakfasts, and endless drinks thanks to Bar Clicquot, a private bartender serving up complimentary Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Rose and Rich.
The highlight of the stay is the exceptional culinary adventures curated by the Maison. This year, Peter Gilmore (Quay, Bennelong), Martin Benn (e Sepia, Society) and Sergio Perera (Chris Hemsworth’s private chef) form the Culinary Tour de Force. This an extremely rare opportunity to sit next to these highly lauded chefs and chat through their innovative creations. Sustainable practices and fresh produce from the Noosa region are at the heart of these culinary adventures. The menus are complemented by La Grande Dame vintages that the resident Sommelier talks you through.
To keep you busy between all the fine dining, Hotel Clicquot has an adventure for you, whether you’re in the mood for action or just want some downtime. They offer everything from sunrise yoga to surfing lessons to private river cruises, or if you want something a little bit more chill, there’s even a cinema screening the classics like Casablanca and Roman Holiday.
Hotel Clicquot will welcome guests from 13 to 28 October, inclusive of airport transfers, meals and activities. The three-night package commands $15,000 per couple. This year booked up well in advance – make sure to keep an eye out for it next year! To discover more and check into paradise, visit the link below.
