Sydney’s newest luxury hotel, Capella Sydney has released the first official internal images of what guests can expect for this highly-anticipated opening. This week, Capella confirmed the 192-room and suite property would open in March 2023, as flagged first by LATTE two months ago.
Capella Sydney has taken up residence within the Department of Education building in Sydney’s Sandstone Precinct. The heritage-listed icon will welcome guests inside its walls for the very first time, setting a global benchmark for luxury accommodation, cuisine and cultural immersion. Embedding visitors in the beating heart of the city’s commercial, cultural and hospitality precinct. Expansion into the neighbouring heritage-listed Department of Lands is expected at a later date.
Capella Sydney celebrates the Australian panorama through its interiors, location and experiences. Spanning eight levels, there will also be three ground-level food and beverage outlets, with spaces throughout the hotel unfurling to reveal commissioned and collected artworks, sophisticated furnishings and intriguing objet d’art.
“Capella Sydney is not just an ode to the city and Sydneysiders, it’s an open invitation for discerning travellers from all around the world to visit Australia and experience the magic of this place we call home,” said Marc von Arnim, Capella Sydney’s General Manager.
“The Capella brand is synonymous with luxury, excellence in the craft of hospitality and cultural immersion. Capella Sydney takes this to the next level through unparalleled heritage work, architecture and interior design, state-of-the-art wellness facilities and transformative guest experiences that go above and beyond the expected, underscored by world-class accommodation and dining,” von Arnim said.
Rooms and suites are light-filled and will average at 55 square metres in dimension, showcasing walnuts, natural stones and deluxe textiles alongside standalone tubs, custom Italian Frette linen and Haeckels amenities. At 235 square-metres, the largest offering within the portfolio is the signature Capella Suite. Located on the ninth floor, its layered interiors celebrate a landmark building steeped in history, where exquisite design allows guests to relax while embracing every indulgent detail.
Capella Sydney will open for online reservations from mid-December 2022.
