Park Hyatt Sydney is one of my favourite hotels in the city, having visited on my recent month-long journey around Australia. I love its prime position on the harbour, looking directly across the water to Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The rooftop pool and spa is my favourite feature – it’s the perfect escape after a day of exploring. I recommend taking one of the private day-bed cabanas that line the pool, ordering a refreshing cocktail and watching the gentle activity of the harbour.
All of the Park Hyatt’s guest rooms and 11 specialty suites are generously sized, many with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and private balconies, which make Park Hyatt feel so different to most city hotels, which can often be stifling. The interiors are contemporary, decorated with soft earth tones and the finest features: King beds, luxury linens and amenities, Bose sound systems and marble bathrooms.
The two-bedroom Sydney Suite is worth particular mention, a glamorous, 350sqm space taking up the top floor of the hotel, with a wraparound balcony to enjoy views across the city skyline. The suite includes a sauna, steam room and spa bath, al fresco dining with loungers, indoor dining for 8 people, and 24-hour butler service. For a family looking to experience the city in style, this is absolutely perfect. Get in touch with our specialists to discuss the best room for your stay.
Park Hyatt’s elegant Dining Room provides guests with a fine-dining experience and more stunning harbour views. The in-house sommelier is super and keen to introduce guests to Australia’s finest wines. If you get back to the hotel quite early from a day out exploring, be sure to try the delicious afternoon tea served in The Living Room.
It’s easy to explore the city-centre and nearby beaches from the Park Hyatt – we can arrange privately guided experiences, as well as chauffeurs to ensure ease and flexibility throughout your stay in the city. Within walking distance you have the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The hotel concierge are also wonderful and will happily assist with anything you might need, within the hotel or out discovering the best of Sydney.
Fun Fact: The marble coffee table inside the Sydney Suite is so heavy it had to be craned in before the ceiling was constructed.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
