If you happen to have a spare $47,000 or your last name is Kardashian, let me introduce you to the most extravagant hotel package I’ve ever laid my eyes on: A Tale of Two Cities by The Langham, Melbourne and The Langham, Sydney.
Complete with almost a week of luxury accommodation, private jets, helicopters, seaplanes, indulgent dinners and a lot of Champagne, the package has been aptly described as “extraordinary, deliberately over-the-top” by The Langham team themselves.
The outrageously impressive package has launched to celebrate The Langham, London’s 156th anniversary, which sees Langham hotels across the world creating special, indulgent packages for the occasion.
Blending the best of Sydney and Melbourne, the package includes three nights’ accommodation in the Chairman’s Suite at The Langham, Melbourne and three nights in The Observatory Suite at The Langham, Sydney, with a private jet flight to transport you between.
But it doesn’t stop there.
In Melbourne, the VIP guests will be transported to the hotel in a private boat with a Champagne in hand, then they’ll enjoy a helicopter flight to the Great Ocean Road including lunch on the Bellarine Peninsula, dinner at Vue de Monde, another boat cruise and a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Melbourne Theatre Company.
During their stay they’ll also enjoy fresh flowers and fruit, personalised designer pyjamas, Veuve Clicquot rosé Champagne, daily Champagne breakfast in bed, Champagne and caviar at Aria Bar & Lounge, an intimate dinner for two in The Chairman’s Suite and Flavours of Langham gifts to take home.
That’s a lot of Champagne.
Then it’s off to Sydney where they’ll experience a scenic seaplane flight to Pittwater for lunch at Jonah’s restaurant, a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb experience, a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Hunter Valley and a four-hour tour of Sydney in the hotel’s new pink taxi.
Of course, they’ll also be treated to Laurent Perrier Champagne, fresh flowers and fruit, daily breakfast in bed with a glass of Champagne, cocktails at The Observatory Bar, afternoon tea in The Observatory Suite, plus personalised take-home gifts.
The Champagne-fuelled six-night experience is available for $47,118 and includes a $2,000 donation to UNICEF to help fund COVID vaccinations to those in need.
So Kim Kardashian, if you’re reading this, I’m available to be your plus one.
And for those looking for a more low-key getaway, both The Langham, Melbourne and The Langham, Sydney have released a series of packages including wellness retreats, gourmet foodie escapes and pet-friendly stays, from a more fathomable $280 per night.
