vibe hotels giveaway

Win a nights accommodation for two, plus something to take home that isn't a mini bottle of shampoo.

Staying in a hotel should be an experience. We're not saying you should raid the mini-bar, jump on the beds and play music loud enough for the whole floor to hear ? just that it should be more than a place to crash at night. Our friends at Vibe Hotels agree. While they would probably prefer it if you didn't jump on the beds (or at least if you removed your shoes before doing so), they do believe that the essence of a good hotel is stylish rooms, delicious food and an atmosphere that allows guests to absorb the true character of the destination.

To convince us of their dedication to this philosophy, Vibe Hotels is offering one lucky reader the chance to win overnight accommodation for two adults. You can choose to stay the night in any Vibe hotel around Australia and relish in buffet breakfast for two at Curve Cafe. They'll also throw in a copy of the Vibe CD: The Chillout Suite, featuring tunes from artists including Mark Ronson, Florence & The Machine and Hot Chip, alongside homegrown favourites such as Angus & Julia Stone, Washington and Sparkadia; just so you have something to take home with you besides single-use bottles of shampoo. To win, email us at giveaways@oystermag.com and tell us: Which of the Vibe CD track titles (below) best describes a holiday you've been on, and why?

Entries will be drawn July 8 and the winner will be notified via email.
