’Sleep suites’: New wellness trend hits Brisbane’s rental market


Dual temperature sheets, magnesium cream, and cutting-edge sleep companion technology.

These are just some of the items on the menu for a good night’s shut-eye at the new ‘wellness suites’ in one of Brisbane’s newest residential towers.

While the sleep tourism trend is becoming more common in luxury hotels, local developer, Cavcorp, is bringing sleep-focused innovation to the city’s rental market, with the release of a number of dedicated ‘sleep suites’ in its Luminare development in Newstead.

It was after a recent stay at New York’s famous Equinox Hotel that Cavcorp founder and managing director Damien Cavallucci decided to introduce the innovative trend to his wellness-focused empire.

Eight two and three bedroom suites on level two of Luminare have now been released to the market for long-term lease at rates ranging from $1400 and $2200 a week.

Mr Cavallucci said the new suites were aimed at wellness-focused corporate executives and interstate and international tenants looking for a Brisbane base.

“We’ve found a unique spot to be in where we are offering hotel-style apartment living for people who are migrating or working up here for six or 12 months,” Mr Cavallucci said.

“At the moment, there’s nothing like this in Brisbane. There’s nowhere here for successful people who want amenity that feels like a hotel.

“We saw a gap in the market for quality rentals with designer furniture and wellness features, not just on the rooftop, but actually in the apartments.”

The suites’ features include double-glazed acoustic and tinted windows, temperature regulated sheets, electric block-out curtains, dimmable mood lighting, 5-star hotel Ultra Plush mattresses, electromagnetic frequency (EMF) sleep switches, sleep packs including magnesium powder and cream, and custom built-in bedheads with control switches.

Travertine bathrooms have been designed with multi-jet showers to provide hydrotherapy benefits such as muscle relaxation and increased circulation, while heated flooring and towel rails help to reduce humidity.

As part of the lease, tenants will also be given a ‘wellness membership’ to Total Fusion Platinum just across the piazza, allowing access to its recovery rooftop amenities such as a cold plunge, dry and infrared saunas, a steam room, a snow cave, an altitude training chamber, a salt cave, a 25m magnesium pool and a recovery zone.

The suites are fully furnished by Jardan and Grazia & Co and feature artwork by Dina Broadhurst.

The kitchens feature leathered quartzite breakfast bars, integrated VZUG appliances, and Nespresso coffee machines.

Tenants can also expect custom rugs, work-from-home spaces, and smart televisions.

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker stayed at the Calile Hotel during his recent stint in Brisbane with the band, but would drive to Total Fusion Platinum to use the wellness facilities there in between shows.

“Travis would just give me a call and swing by and jump in the cryo (cryotherapy chamber) in the morning to wake him up,” Mr Cavallucci said.

But he said having wellness facilities in the one apartment and Total Fusion Platinum’s amenities literally next door would be much easier for guests like Mr Barker in future.

“We’re just trying to give everyone the opportunity to have the best sleep ever, and have it in a format which is really quick and easy.”
