A Unique Luxury Guest House Fit for an Emperor

The first and only private Chinese imperial style holiday retreat in Australia.

Experience the culture and traditions of China within your own private holiday retreat perched high on picturesque Mount Dandenong. Enjoy commanding panoramic city and bay views, and be amazed at the glow of twinkling lights at night. Furnished with traditional antique imperial furniture, this retreat offers a unique getaway that will immerse you in a traditional cultural experience.

Located in Kalorama, this exquisite bed & breakfast brings a rare opportunity to step into a beautiful culture over 5000 years old.

The retreat is comprised of an Emperor, Empress and Concubine suites and is surrounded by a unique and beautiful Chinese garden.

Come to discover, relax, and rejuvenate... and pamper yourself like an Emperor!

Step through the front door and enter another world of culture as you walk along the elegant corridor that leads the main lounge. You will be impressed by the set of Chinese lanterns, the traditional monk's sofa, the antique 1896 Steinway grand piano, and the traditional Chinese instrument Guzheng (zither).

The elegant hand-carved dining table can accommodate 10 people, and the marble log fire will keep you warm & cosy on the coldest night. To furnish your experience with every detail, a pair of decorative wall display units are filled with ornate traditional vases and authentic period items. There is a flat screen TV provided, complete with hundreds of satellite channels for you to enjoy.

Picture this,

Stroll at your leisure through the wonderful authentic gardens that surround the property, which not only provide you with eye-catching beauty but the privacy you expect from such a venue.

Enjoy waterfalls, as you wander across ornate bridges. Pay a visit to the water Buddha, or unwind with a delicious private breakfast at your own Chinese pavilion, all the while being guarded by your very own Terracotta soldiers.

High above the crowds,

Kalorama is a quaint little town near the summit of Mt. Dandenong. The nearby lookout offers expansive vistas across the Dandenong ranges.

A short walk away is a boutique art gallery, and the relaxed atmosphere of the nearby Cafe.

Whilst the region offers an array of food choices, don't forget to sample a local Devonshire Tea, as no trip to the Dandenong's is the same without it!


Enjoy the Australian outdoor with Sherbrooke forest and the Mt Dandenong Sky high Summit close by or simply enjoy a leisure bush walking at the doorstep. The retreat is also close to Olinda with its famous shops and Cafes and restaurants.
