The Most Luxurious Places to Stay in Sydney

19 Jun The Most Luxurious Places to Stay in Sydney


Generally, after a long day of business meetings and sightseeing, most people want just to put their heads on the pillows and rest. Some of those people prefer spending their time in simple and standard hotels, and some love resting in hotels that offer comfort and luxury at the same time.

If you like spending your time in hotels that go above and beyond with their customer service, and you like being surrounded by extravagant and cool art, then luxury hotels are certainly the right choice for you. Sure, they might be somewhat pricey, but good things are rarely cheap.

Let’s take a look at some of the most impressive luxury hotels in Sydney and see what they offer.

The Darling

When it comes to luxury hotels, The Darling is a crown jewel even though it’s fairly new. After all, The Darling is Sydney’s first and only luxury hotel to receive the prestigious Forbes five-star rating, and that’s saying something.


The Darling offers its guests a chance to live like famous rock stars, even for a day. It does everything right by combining an award-winning spa, excellent water views, and luxurious rooms. It’s bold but discreet, extravagant but not kitschy, and playful and sophisticated at the same time.

Rooms in this hotel are high tech and high end, and you can just imagine someone like James Bond spending his time there before going on a mission.

The Langham

The Langham recently underwent a $30 million upgrade, and it’s looking better than ever, but that’s not the most important thing about this hotel. The Langham offers services such as a private lift, private bar, and a paparazzi protected space. People who value their privacy above anything else should definitely give The Langham a chance.

This hotel also offers a butler service, which is to be expected when you’re splashing $3000 or $5000 for a night at a hotel, but their butlers go above and beyond. They’ll unpack your bags, get you everything that you need, and they’ll even organise your shopping and your meetings with friends.



Contemporary Hotels

If you’re very busy, and you don’t mind spending a couple of dollars more in order to relax like a king without anyone bothering you, then Contemporary Hotels has something for you. The truth is, places such as The Langham are all about privacy, but if you really want to hide far away from prying eyes, renting a luxury accommodation in Byron Bay is probably a better idea. Once Byron Bay was a hippy hangout, but now it’s a playground for the rich and famous.

Spoil your body and your mind in a luxurious villa and relax completely while listening to the sounds of the ocean waves or spend your time wandering through the private landscaped grounds. Release your inner bohemian by spending your vacation in one of the extravagant villas equipped with everything that even a movie star needs on the coast.


Medusa Hotel

This hotel is located in Sydney’s city centre and offers easy access to bars and nightclubs, which makes it perfect for those who want to see Sydney at night. It has spacious, colourful bedrooms, and theatrical interiors which might seem somewhat eccentric and theatrical to some people, but that doesn’t mean that you should avoid this hotel.


The greatest thing about this hotel is that it’s a grown-up type of place and it’s not family friendly. The downside of The Medusa is that it doesn’t serve food, but there are a couple of gourmet restaurants around it.

Sir Stamford


Sir Stamford is located on Macquarie Street, in a part of town known for upmarket hotels. The rooms in this hotel are classy and elegant, and the bar is dark and moody. If you’re fascinated by film noir, and you want to spend your vacation in a hotel where service is polished to perfection, Sir Stamford offers that, and much more. You’ll also have access to a fitness centre, sauna, and outdoor pool.

    What?!?!? The butlers will unpack your bags? Now that is some high-quality service. I would love to check out The Langham just to take photos of the $30 million upgrade. The space is simply breathtaking!

    These sound absolutely amazing! I am never exceptionally comfortable in luxury places just because that isn’t me… However, I could get used to being pampered! I don’t even have to unpack myself? I can get down with the adult-only idea of Medusa Hotel.

    Normally I am a budget backpacker but I still love a bit of luxury every now and again. Sydney is definitely the city to splurge in and I would love to stay at one of these, especially The Darling.

    I usually stay with friends and family in city but if the Langham is anything like the one in London, I’m in!
