During a weekend in which I had successfully managed to take my mind off work, Lipault – one of France’s leading luggage brands ¬– whisked me away to the sumptuously furnished Crown Metropol Perth, where the city skyline looks infinitely better from the guest rooms.
Needless to say, I brought along my go-to tote, Lipault’s Lady Plume Weekend bag, in the most gorgeous duck blue shade, and by a stroke of luck it color coordinated with all my packed outfits.
Of course the first thing I did upon arrival was to check into the room, and check out the world-class pool. Lipault made no rookie error in ensuring my stay was as comfortable as it should be, and most pleasant it certainly was.
For the record, I did watch the sundown situation across Swan River from my deep soaking bathtub, and have come to the conclusion that Western Australia boasts some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world. Surely you can’t deny the rich tableau of colors that come with each evening.
My getaway with Lipault was excellently topped off with a classic relaxation massage at Crown’s ISIKA spa, where I was booked into an opulent riverside couple’s suite with views of the Perth city skyline. Not to say that I paid no attention to the marvelous rubdown, but watching the close of day in its entire indigo tinge glory, made for a truly enchanting sight.
A weekend escape is never complete without a fine meal, and Lipault seemed to read my mind – a Black Truffle Winter Menu at the plush 1907 Restaurant was the perfect way to cap off the day. Infused with the exquisite Manjimup Black Truffles, the degustation was as heartwarming as I expected it to be, and more. A wonderful, wonderful encounter.
