Landmark Hotel’s $30-Million Facelift
The Langham, Sydney will be closing its doors from 24 July until December this year to commence its highly anticipated $30-million refurbishment. The planned changes will see the hotel transform into Sydney’s most exclusive harbourside address. Prestigious GA Design are behind the new look, which upon completion will boast a refreshed lobby, dining areas, guestrooms and residential-style ballroom with an aesthetic blending sophistication and timeless elegance with custom-made furnishings and treatments. Signature Langham luxuries such as the Chuan Spa and Palm Court will be also introduced.
The 96-room residence features the largest guestrooms in Sydney, and from its central Kent Street address, guests can enjoy sweeping western harbourside views, and a tranquil yet convenient location in proximity to some of the city’s most iconic destinations.
The new Lobby will feature a stunning floor of Calacatta marble with a simple Art Deco-inspired design and a large central reception desk of gold leaf crackled porcelain. The space will also be extended and the existing staircase removed, flooding the area with natural light, creating the grandest of entrances.
Palm Court (famed as the birthplace of the traditional Afternoon Tea experience) will also be welcomed by The Langham, Sydney. It will see Sydneysiders offered an exclusive Afternoon Tea experience – ‘Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood’. The space will be adorned by shades of teal and citrus golds, evoking a sense of English heritage in an elegant yet striking environment bathed in natural light.
Headed up by recent acquisition, Chef de Cuisine Daniel Rudolph (formerly of est.), Kent Street Kitchen will deliver a unique and one-of-a-kind, contemporary fine-dining experience. It will also be flexible in design and layout to allow for intimate private dining functions.
The Langham, Sydney’s Day Spa will now be transformed into a Chuan Spa; a Langham signature, delivering a reinvigorated spa experience. The spa’s philosophy is as old as time itself, centred on the foundations of Traditional Chinese. The all-inclusive offering provides a holistic approach to health, fitness and wellness, with a fully-equipped Health Club, Jacuzzi and steam rooms. The Langham, Sydney’s renowned 20m indoor pool, complete with pale stone columns and a star-dappled sky ceiling will remain, completing the ultimate oasis of quiet calm.
