Showcasing edgy art and architecture, this Down Under escape isn't for the faint of heart.
The art of luxury lodging is scaled to new heights at the MONA Pavilions. As part of the edgy Museum of Old and New Art complex (containing works by Damien Hirst and Jean-Michel Basquiat), this unique property features eight distinctive, angular pavilions that are cantilevered over the Derwent River. Named after famous Australian artists and architects, the sleek Zen setting offers unparalleled access to the Moorilla winery, which shares the grounds of the hotel. This boutique winery focuses on sustainable, organic practices and guests can sample vintages at the on-site wine bar — or take a bottle back to their room and store it in their personal wine fridge. As if a museum on your doorstep isn't enough, MONA also has a cinema, live music and a small brewery.
