In terms of Sydney accommodation, it’s hard to rival the Park Hyatt. Found on the city’s famous harbour, it commands views of the sweeping white curves of the Opera House and that famous steel bridge. You’ll also have the sandstone heritage of the Rocks District on your doorstep along with waterside walks that lead through botanic gardens. Taking advantage of it all, the hotel even puts on daily activities that include fitness sessions, yoga classes and morning jogs.
And, keeping a low profile, the hotel does little to impact on the urban beauty of its setting. Indeed, its rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows open onto private balconies to make the most of those stunning views. Looking the other way, marble en suites and original paintings impart a palpable commitment to style as a private butler service delivers the morning papers.
Dining is equally considered, with the hotel’s restaurant famed for its degustation menus. Over multiple courses, guests are treated to modern French menus formed from fresh, regionally sourced produce. It’s all complemented by sommelier-paired choices that showcase only the finest of Australian wines. For something more relaxed, head to The Living Room where you can enjoy a range of gourmet light bites right on the waterside. And, if you’re feeling indulgent, opt for the champagne afternoon tea.
To accompany it all, there’s an excellent range of facilities. Of which, the rooftop pool is a real highlight, offering superb sun-terrace views over the harbour. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym and an excellent spa; the Aboriginal clay treatments are a real highlight.
