Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS - WRITER “A Home Among the Gum Trees”

In South Yarra, “a lit­tle oa­sis of green next to Mel­bourne with great shop­ping and din­ing,” Alexan­der vis­ited the new United Places, which is “lead­ing the charge in per­son­al­ized ho­tels that make you feel at home but also of­fer lux­ury. The Ur­ban Pent­house suite has a black-stone tub over­look­ing the Royal Botanic Gar­dens. If you’re feel­ing ti­morous you can al­ways lower the blind, to look out but not in.” With in-house restau­rant Matilda, she says, “chef Scott Pick­ett is try­ing to achieve sim­ple, earthy fla­vors al­ways con­nected to the ele­ment of fire.” In­sta­gram: @lindyalexan­der­writer.
