10 Things to Try When Staying at Imagine Lighthouse

Feb 22, 2021


Melbourne city is open and thriving.

For a city where experience is paramount and creativity is forever unrivalled, there’s no denying the passion and purpose of our people. Where visitors stay to discover their heart is simply whole in Melbourne, the revival of indulgent nights away and city staycations are readily welcomed by the team at Imagine Hotels & Resorts.

Whether you’re dining out or exploring the CBD, Imagine Lighthouse hotel offers luxury, elegance and all the essentials for a home away from home. With custom made bedding accompanied by unparalleled views of Melbourne’s city skyline, guests are welcomed to revel in a night of well-deserved freedom.

Stay a night or stay a week, Imagine Hotels & Resorts really don’t mind. We want you back and bragging, boosting the economy we all fell in love with and decided to never leave. 


Below are 10 things to try and 10 ways to maximise your summer stay in the CBD:

1.    Visit Laksa House directly opposite the hotel

You must make time for a meal at Elizabeth St’s Laksa House. We have rated it in the top 3 Laksa locations across Melbourne. (we recommend the Vegetarian Laksa).

2.    Visit the indoor pool and wear the brightest swimwear you own

Because colour forever boosts positivity and makes for a stunning photo opportunity.

3.    Unwind and Relax at the onsite sauna.

Switch off work stresses, and switch on holiday mode.

4.    Call ahead and upgrade to a Sky Apartment

With panoramic views of Melbourne’s CBD, fall asleep to glistening city lights and wake up to a sunrise like never before.

5.    Visit a hidden dessert bar – Hong Kong Boi.

Just a two-minute walk from Imagine Lighthouse, dessert deprived visitors can explore cobblestone backstreets to truly work for their reward. Hong Kong Boi provides combinations of gelato and milk tea, within a Hong Kong inspired ‘egg waffle.’

6.    Test your flag knowledge within Queen Victoria Market’s indoor space

With a flag from each country, see how many you can name out loud! Just five minutes across the road, visit Queen Victoria’s indoor market section and look up!

7.    Try a Ferguson Plarre donut.

Located within Queen Victoria Market, Ferguson Plarre attracts a line up well worth the wait.

8.    Decorate your Apartment with freshly cut local flowers

Queen Victoria Market is on your literal doorstep and features one of Melbourne’s favourite florists. Located just across the road, Joe Leuzzi’s Flower Shop is iconic, and guaranteed to ‘brighten your home, and your day.’

9.    Photograph yourself against the lobby’s multiple mirrors

Our modern mirrored interior makes for a very instragrammable, visual treat.

10.    Workout with us! Visit Imagine Lighthouse’s extensive gym

Start your day with energy and power by visiting the large gym on our facilities level. The space also features an outdoor area for cooling down or extensive exercise.
