Magnificently transformed by the late Kerry Hill - the Perth-born architect with an international pedigree – COMO The Treasury has breathed new life into a clutch of historic state buildings in the very heart of Perth. These at one time housed the Lands and Titles offices, the Treasury and the General Post Office - now beautifully converted into a contemporary and luxurious retreat. Original dormer windows flood the rooms with light, which, together with a neutral colour palette and custom blonde wood furnishings, create a feeling of serenity.
The food offering is equally considered, from the rooftop Wildflower which has a farmer-and-forager-driven menu of dishes based around the six seasons of the indigenous Noongar calendar, to the Italian Post restaurant - set in what was once the franking room of the General Post Office. Finally, as you would expect from the COMO group, the spa and wellness offering at the Treasury is an undeniable highlight. Holistic treatments are carried out in an ambient setting (one-time vault of the state buildings which held Perth’s titles and deeds), which now also houses the hotel’s 20-metre heated swimming pool.
