The Prince settles in to its second decade still a leading force – merging cutting-edge glamour with laid back luxe feel. When you enter the lobby you see a bluestone reception desk floating in front of an impressive Dale Frank painting. Spot light vases, designer couches and an original Le Chaise by Charles and Ray Eames, serve as visual and functional pieces within the space. Yet the rooms offer warmth and texture, are flooded with natural light and are set with an eclectic mix of furniture, lighting and objects and as hair and body products they have the world renowned Australian company, Aesop.
