    Marking twenty one years of hospitality in Sydney’s most sought after waterfront location, Park Hyatt Sydney will soon reveal a spectacular rebuilt residence, pairing an unrivalled location with an unrivalled hotel. In the most dramatic transformation of Sydney’s harbour frontage, Park Hyatt Sydney has closed its rooms, spa, restaurant and bars for most of 2011 to undergo a complete rebuild.When Park Hyatt Sydney re-opens its doors it will feature 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 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 are 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 twenty one 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 are creating 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 can provide. Custom-designed lighting and new natural tone furnishings and fixtures enhance the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that Park Hyatt Sydney observe.

    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 amongst Sydney’s largest guest rooms.
