While grand and extravagant suites at hotels such as the Park Hyatt, Hilton, InterContinental, Shangri-La, Westin and Sheraton may be the choice for international dignitaries visiting Sydney, the hip set are turning to city’s best-kept secret, the Diamant for its stunning penthouse.
The view from the Diamant penthouse
Located atop the Diamant Hotel Sydney in Kings Cross, the Burley Katon Halliday-designed penthouse comes complete with two outdoor entertaining balconies with amazing views of the Harbour and city, a huge gourmet kitchen, dining and living room, powder room, ensuite with spa bath in the master bedroom and two guest rooms featuring private bathrooms.
Ideal for visiting A-listers, celebrities and those looking to host a private dinner party for up to twelve guests, the space also features luxury furnishings, state of the art entertainment systems complete with speaker controls in every room and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The best selling point for the room, perhaps, is the price tag. This space, which is arguably in the top half-dozen Sydney hotel rooms, is priced from $1700 per night.
Eight Hotels Australia CEO Paul Fischmann said the Diamant Hotel Sydney’s penthouse was truly a jewel in the crown for the locally-owned chain.
“We are pleased to have the Diamant Penthouse in our collection,” he said. “This landmark space caters to guests demanding exceptional quality of space and service, and showcases our commitment to delivering the sophisticated travelling and living experience.”
Also available for private events and product launches, the penthouse is undoubtedly the most exciting addition to Sydney’s accommodation scene since the opening of the hotel itself a couple of years ago.
