A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

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
Grace Hotel
One of the city's best examples of pre-war architecture, The Grace hotel was once an office block that was requisitioned during the Second World War for use as allied headquarters.
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.
Star City
An easy stroll from central Sydney, there's really only one place to go if you want to burn some cash on roulette, baccarat or blackjack, and that's Star City -
Sebel Pier One
With its waterfront location and uninterrupted harbour views, scarcely a weekend goes by when the Sebel isn't hosting a wedding.
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.
Sofitel
The beds at Sofitel are famous, and quite rightly so.
Hughenden
A go-to for literary lovers or travellers wanting to stay somewhere that's more like a home, this stately Victorian mansion has worn many hats in its time.
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.
Quay Grand Suites
Comfortably treading the line between luxury hotel and serviced apartment, the Quay Grand Suites occupy a prime slice of Sydney real estate adjacent to the infamous so-called 'Toaster' building.
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.
Establishment
Easily one of Sydney's hippest addresses, every visiting celebrity, fashionista and designer worth their salt has shacked up in one of Establishment's minimalistic-cool suites,
Hilton
Bells at Killcare
Nestled in beautifully landscaped gardens and bushland, Bells is chic, coastal retreat around an hour or so from Sydney (or 20 minutes by ferry from Palm Beach).
