Upon walking in, between the bright colours and fun vibes, you instantly feel relaxed. Yes, just like you would if you were on an actual holiday.

The folks behind Hotel Delilah are building a two-bedroom unit that’ll be available to rent on Airbnb.

Hotel Delilah was founded by Ryan Boudah (Nightowl and previously Brooklynn), Executive Chef Marcus Monteiro (previously Brassaii also partner at Melrose on Adelaide), designer Damon Snider (Type-D Living), and Joshua Seaton (SMG, Nightowl, and previously Brooklynn).

This is the groups first endeavour in the hospitality industry. “Opening a restaurant is not a glamorous thing but doing it with partners you love with a common passion for hospitality is what makes it all worth it!” says Joshua Seaton exclusively to StyleDemocracy.

The menu is broken up into three categories: Munchies, Roll One Up, and Pack A Bowl.
