(MENAFN Press) Park Hyatt Sydney Re-Opens Following Extensive Transformation
Dubai, United Arab Emirates (15 March, 2012) - Marking 22 years of hospitality in Sydney's most sought after waterfront location, Park Hyatt Sydney has revealed a spectacular rebuilt residence, pairing an unrivalled location with an unrivalled hotel.
To dramatically transform Sydney's harbour front, Park Hyatt Sydney closed its rooms, spa, restaurant and bars for most of 2011 to undergo a complete rebuild.
Park Hyatt Sydney now features three rooftop suites built on a new fourth level. This new level boasts just shy of 360-degree views spanning Sydney's iconic Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and includes the city's largest suite, the Sydney Suite at 350 square meters, offering the most discerning guest Sydney's absolute finest.
Importantly Park Hyatt Sydney honours its heritage by ensuring original Sydney Sandstone and local woods were incorporated in the rebuild. The hotel has commissioned a number of Australian artists including sculptors, painters and photographers for artworks designed especially for the new hotel. The 21 years that Park Hyatt Sydney have called their Circular Quay pier home is respected and celebrated throughout the hotels' redesign.
Australian hotel design firm, BARstudio, has created a new intimate and stylish interior, featuring an art gallery of interior pieces, including artefacts, books and artworks on the bedroom shelves and walls in all 155 bedrooms, and unique items throughout the hotel. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto spacious private balconies for most guestrooms, which no other accommodation in Sydney provides. Custom-designed lighting and new natural tone furnishings and fixtures enhance the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that Park Hyatt Sydney observes.
The multi-million dollar renovation includes a total reconfiguration of the low rise serpentine designed building, introducing a new and larger day spa, restaurant, bars, private dining rooms, enhanced and larger conference facilities, gymnasium and recreational spaces in addition to Sydney's largest guest rooms.
The new restaurant, The Dining Room, is led by Australian born chef, Andrew McKee, who brings with him a fundamental appreciation of the premium quality of Australian produce.
Offering guests his authentically inspired cuisine, sourced from specialty local farmers and fisherman, his meals can be enjoyed while relishing the clean air and sunshine from one of the guest room balconies or open dining areas, making a uniquely Australian experience.
Park Hyatt Sydney's general manager, Andrew Mensforth, stated, "Park Hyatt Sydney has completed the rebuild of this fine property, and we are delighted to announce we have reopened. Having undertaken a total rebuild, with only the external walls remaining, we look forward to showcasing the new hotel to our discerning local and international guests".
