Backed by the vineyards of the Mornington Peninsula wine region, the Jackalope Hotel offsets its rustic landscape with a whimsical scheme. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a 20-foot sculpture of the hotel’s mythical mascot by Emily Floyd. This art-driven motif is continued throughout the space with curated pieces and installations from artists and designers known around the world. Custom tile, rain showers, and Japanese baths accompany the 46 dens. While contemporary in design, each room features floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces to welcome in views of the surround fields. A pair of restaurants offer two unique dining experiences — an alchemy-inspired joint where you can dine under a 10,000-lamp Jan Flook chandelier or wine bar serving the local produce in the atmosphere it was created.
