Rediscover romance as you relax the body, refresh the mind and rejuvenate the soul. Arnica Views is the most exclusive retreat at the very HEIGHT of Melbourne, located on the summit of Mt Dandenong and less than an hour's drive from Melbourne. Just strolling distance from the Skyhigh Restaurant and Observatory, Arnica Views is located in a tranquil setting and away from the noise of the main road. The property boasts stunning views of the Melbourne city skyline and is set amongst two glorious acres of 80 year old English gardens.
Arnica Views is one of the few extraordinary places where timeless elegance and sophisticated style are vibrantly alive. Quite different from a hotel, Arnica Views offer boutique style accommodation with beautifully appointed private suites, exceptional service and true comfort that is perfect all year round for special occasions or as an escape from busy lives. Guests arrive to a suite filled with the ambience of soft lighting, relaxing music, the aroma of soothing essential oils, cosy and warm in the cooler months and refreshingly cool in the warmer months.

A generous English breakfast hamper is included for each day of stay (with free range eggs, bacon and and baked beans) along with locally baked bread, cereals, yoghurt and fruit, jams, juice, brewed coffee and a selection of herbal and black teas.
