Sydney Harbour & the Best Views!

by iflores on March 6, 2017

If you are flying to Australia then there’s a darn good chance you will be spending at least one night in Sydney. So why not do it in style?!

One of Sydney’s best located five-star hotels, the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, has unveiled its new executive club, Lounge 32, designed to meet growing demand from both leisure and business guests for a home-away-from-home experience when traveling.

Located on level 32 of the iconic hotel, Lounge 32 is an exclusive retreat with a luxurious yet homely look and feel, with residential style offerings such as a central open-plan kitchen with open bar, self-service fridges stocked with Australian wines and gourmet, healthy homemade-style dishes.

The new venue also features plush armchairs and velvet lounges, designer homewares, a luxurious naturally lit meeting room, and sweeping views of Sydney city and harbor, best enjoyed from soft leather banquettes tucked into each bay window. Four Seasons Hotel Sydney worked with award-winning Australian interior designer Miriam Fanning of Mim Design to conceptualize the luxury lounge, with interiors inspired by the hotel’s history and harbor-side location. The color palate takes cues from Sydney Harbour, with inky blues, brushed brass, and creams and dove greys of the Sydney Opera House. Lounge 32 is completed by striking contemporary Australian artworks, including life-size paper sculptures of cockatoos by Sydney artist Anna-Wili Highfield and aerial Australian landscapes by Melbourne photographer Brooke Holm.

Lounge 32 is reserved for guests booked in a Club Room or Club Suite on the top floors at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, with exclusive privileges including complimentary buffet breakfast with eggs cooked to order by personal chefs, all-day refreshments, evening gourmet can.

Have a great day,
