Sydney’s new hotel opens

The Darling Hotel and Spa Sydney, highlighted by AERBT in July 2011, will officially open its doors on Friday 28 October.  The 171-room boutique property is the first 5-star new hotel to be built in the city since the 2000 Olympic Games.  It is a key element in the £500m refurbishment and extension of The Star complex, inland from the Harbour Bridge, transforming it into a one-of-a-kind entertainment destination and a strong addition to Sydney’s overall leisure landscape.

Outstanding features of the property are the top floors dedicated to the ultimate in luxury, featuring two-bedroom penthouse suites.  The suites, uniquely designed by renowned LA designer, Lawrence Lee, feature floor-to-ceiling Sydney harbour views, bespoke furniture, fireplaces, media rooms, butler service and a private VIP arrival.  There are also nine “Stellar” suites and eight “Adored” suites, the entry via a private foyer which opens onto a spacious living room with stunning views and flows through to an intimate dining area.  Doors lead to a king-size bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, a fully appointed marble bathroom and a separate powder room for guests.  

The hotel also has a Spa with 16 private rooms and a Japanese restaurant Sokyo. www.thedarling.com.au
