Six Senses Burnham Beeches

This 1930s heritage-listed mansion and 22-hectare estate will be transformed into a gastronomic and wellness retreat


Time Out says

The historic Burnham Beeches estate, located in Melbourne’s tranquil Dandenong Ranges, is set to be restored to its former art-deco glory by luxury hotel, resort and spa group Six Senses.

The mansion will feature a welcome lounge and terrace, library bar and plant-covered rooftop retreat, with the design of each space nodding back to the 1930s charm of the original property. The Six Senses Spa on the lower ground will be framed by views of the lush gardens outside and house a boutique, tea lounge, treatment rooms, gym, hydro area and sauna.

Take your choice from a variety of guest rooms, each with individual layouts and their own rustic-luxe character, spread over the mansion’s three main wings. The Hilltop Retreat – a  separate two-bedroom cottage with an interconnecting one-bedroom suite – offers a private getaway, while nearby eco-friendly glamping tents provide an alternative to staying in the main house. 

The property is also accessible to non-guests. While the kids are entertained by the tactile nature playground, adults can roam the Village Square and indulge in a variety of rustic hospitality options aptly named the Hearth, the Barn, Steak House, the Baker, Brew House and Providore.

An on-site farm garden will provide fruit and vegetables for the estate’s restaurants, while the herb garden will be used in workshops at the Alchemy Bar as well as in spa treatments. A series of walking trails will weave through the site, connecting the history of Burnham Beeches with neighbouring Sherbrooke Forest and Sir Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens.

Six Senses Burnham Beeches is set to open in mid-2025.
