Sweet news from the Melbourne CBD: honeybees have taken residence on the highest floor of the Park Hyatt this summer. The 100,000+ orphaned bees, rescued from residential areas of the community, have been rehomed to the rooftop rotunda and are free to forage the acres of gardens and parks which surround the hotel.
It’s a win-win for the Park Hyatt’s culinary team who use the local, sustainable honey for the daily breakfast buffet in radii restaurant and in-room dining.
“We strongly believe in sustainability, being environmentally responsible and using locally sourced ingredients and we look forward to offering guests inventive new dishes featuring our very own home-harvested honey,” says Executive Chef Mark Sainsbury.
