A fresh facelift for Utopia’s old chalet

After almost a year of working with specialist architects, planning with heritage experts and securing both council and Government approvals, we are thrilled to announce that Utopia’s beloved old chalet will be undergoing a much needed restoration and gorgeous renovation in July this year.

Work will begin in mid-July to enclose Utopia’s current front terrace into the main dining room, making our already gorgeous restaurant even more spectacular. In effect, we will be moving the existing front doors and windows forward, creating a more open, usable and spacious ‘indoor/outdoor’ feel all year round while still retaining all of the chalet’s cosy charm and unique heritage features.

Utopia’s beautiful heritage features such as lead lighting, rich parquetry flooring, soaring art nouveau ceilings, exposed stonework and crystal chandeliers will be carefully restored and retained. The entire main dining room will enjoy a fresh coat of paint, while the newly enclosed frontage will boast luxurious spotted gum flooring, a comfy ‘coffee bar’ and bi-fold glass windows and walls – allowing us to open the building right up to bring our beautiful gully gardens ‘inside’. The new front windows and entrance doors will also create a neat, clean and beautiful facade for the chalet.

Our refreshed dining room will include a fold-away glass wall to divide the space into two areas and create privacy, allowing us to continue hosting small and exclusive events in the main restaurant as well as romantic wedding ceremonies in the area formerly used as the terrace. The ten outdoor umbrella tables along the front and side of Utopia will be slightly adjusted to allow for more mingling and moving space, perfect for both daytime al fresco dining as well as pre-dinner drinks and canapés for our evening events.

As part of the improvements, our kitchen team will be spoiled with a host of much-needed new equipment, while the kiosk is also being re-fitted to feature a brand new fresh juice and smoothie bar.

To allow the changes to take place as quickly and smoothly as possible, Utopia will be closed for renovations from Tuesday the 15th of July until Friday the 1st of August. Thanks to careful scheduling, these closures and changes will not affect our existing wedding, event or meal bookings in any way.

To find out more about the exciting changed planned at Utopia, please feel free to contact our owners Kelly or Justin on 8379 2488, or email Otherwise keep an eye on our website and Facebook page to see progress photos…and pop in soon to enjoy the chalet’s spectacular makeover!
