On the ground, W.A.’s 2018 Chef of the Year, Jed Gerrad, will be heading the opening of Hearth. n 2016, Jed launched the Como Hotels’ Wildflower restaurant, another staple in Perth’s fine cuisine scene.

All aspects of the hotel are weaved together to pay homage to Western Australia, on entry guests will be greeted by over 10,000 pieces of hand-picked sandstone from the Kimberley.

Ritz Perth’s General Manager Dario Orsini said: “This place is packed with homages to what Western Australia has to offer to world.”

“Everything that you will taste, see, feel and touch here in Western Australia,” Dario added.
