A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

The Old Clare Hotel
Formerly a pub and a brewery admin building, The Old Clare Hotel, a chic boutique hotel in Chippendale, offers style and three independent restaurants.
Tivoli Villa
Tivoli Villa is described as The Great Gatsby mansion, and it's easy to see why.
Shangri-La
Even purists will find it difficult to fault the Shangri-La. It's one of those hotels that has it all covered.
Pacific Road House
Set among the swaying eucalyptus trees and only a short stroll to the beach, this gorgeous, privately-rented mansion is the epitome of Australian beachside luxu
Quarantine Station
One of Sydney's quirkier stays, but where else can you wake up to the sound of kookaburras, enjoy uninterrupted harbour views and spot native wildlife like fairy penguins and bandicoots meandering outside your suite?
Jonah’s Whale Beach
Perched on its clifftop throne overlooking the dreamy blue vista of the Pacific Ocean, Jonah's is one of Sydney's most exclusive boutique hotels and restaurants.
Observatory
Resplendent with its brocade, gold gilt and 19th-century pomp, the Observatory has a luxuriously old-world style that will send minimalists running for the door.
Potts Point View
The ultimate urban pad, Potts Point View smacks of masculine sophistication.
Darling Point Pad
Want to be the envy of all Sydneysiders? Then stay here. This glamorous, privately-rented penthouse apartment is the one we all dream of owning.
QT Hotel
Feeding off the cosmopolitan buzz of the city's central business district, the colourfully edgy and brand-spankingly new QT is by far of one of the quirkiest, coolest hotels in Sydney.
Ravesi’s
Ravesi's is a little gem of a hotel smack bang on the beachfront of Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach.
Medusa
Near the mischievous red light district of Kings Cross, this grand, three-levelled terrace mansion is home to an elegant boutique hotel named after the beautiful, yet terrifying mythical snake-haired maiden, Medusa.
Pretty Beach House
Around 100-kilometres from Sydney on the Bouddi Peninsula, this private boutique retreat is set in tranquil native bushland and offers round-the-clock private butler service and a no-expenses-spared experience.
Cockatoo Island
Want to stay on an island, nearly all to yourself? Managed by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Cockatoo Island is a ferry ride from Circular Quay.
Fraser Suites
This luxury, five-star serviced apartment hotel is such a well-hidden secret, the most savvy local wouldn't know it - even though it's directly opposite renowne
Sheraton on the Park
Directly fronting the verdant expanse of Hyde Park, the Sheraton is a good choice for travellers with extra luggage room, as it's within ambling distance from Sydney's department stores and the new Westfield shopping mall.
Kirketon
Originally designed by Burley Katon Halliday, this 40-room boutique hotel was acquired by the Eight Hotels group in 2008 who commissioned Edge Design to rework the interiors and conjure up something reminiscent of a Parisian boutique hotel.
