Arnica Views derives its name from two sources; Arnica Montana, an amazing herb known for it's mind and body healing properties and the stunning views the property boasts of the Melbourne City Skyline and surrounds.
Located on the summit of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, less than an hour's drive from Melbourne and away from the noise of the main road, Arnica Views is set amidst two acres of magnificent 80 year old English gardens, offering splendour throughout every season.
Arnica Views is one of the few extraordinary places where timeless elegance and sophisticated style are vibrantly alive. Quite different from a hotel, Arnica Views offers boutique style accommodation with magnificently appointed private retreats, exceptional service and true comfort that is perfect all year around for special occasions and to escape the everyday.
Cooinda means happy place and guests will see why soon after they arrive. From the fountain in the front garden, up the sweeping staircase and past beautiful bedrooms, they will reach the stunning upper level with city views and breathtaking sunsets.
Cooinda is set on 1000m2 of gardens and is located in the heart of Olinda. Stroll to great English Taverns, beautiful restaurants, cafes and quaint shops. Then walk or take a short drive into Sassafras Village with more fabulous shops and cafes.
Visit some of the magnificent gardens such as the Rhododendron and Alfred Nichols Gardens and historical icons such as William Rickets Sanctuary. For lovers of world class wine and produce, the Yarra Valley region is any easy drive. Guests can ‘cook up a storm’ in the large kitchen or just enjoy (their recently purchased!) wine and cheese on the balcony whilst watching the sunset.
