    The first luxury Fullerton Hotel outside Singapore will open in Sydney on 18th of October 2019.

    The Fullerton Hotel Sydney can be found at No. 1 Martin Place, right in the heart of Sydney, and this five-star hotel will offer the very best in accommodation and service. There are two accommodation options guests can choose from: the first is in the historic former General Post Office building, while the second, can be found in the high-rise Tower wing.

    Martin Place is a cultural hub in Sydney, with fine dining, exclusive bars and high-end shopping. Less than 15 minutes from the hotel, guests can experience some of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, including the Opera House and the historic Rocks area.

    This stylishly designed hotel is sure to inspire your next visit to sunny Sydney.

    Loving the Langham

    The Langham Hotel group is known for not only pampering guests but also pooches, with doggy menus and divine pink velvet pillows available at many of its properties. The brand will be opening in the Gold Coast’s much-anticipated Jewel development next year, making it the first absolute beachfront resort development on the region in more than thirty years, and prompting suggestions that the Langham’s signature pink roses be replaced with pink gladioli and butlers be on hand to apply spray tans.

    More news on the Langham front is the Curtis Bay project on the Great Barrier Reef, which is slated to open in 2022 with 58 villas and 12 wilderness tents.  One billion dollars will be put into hotels in Tokyo’s Roppongi district (complete with rooftop onsen) and San Francisco (a Renzo Piano-designed glass tower to be opened in 2023). Jakarta will host a new Langham next year, right next door to the Stock Exchange, and closer to home, we are looking forward to the opening of the Sydney Langham’s Kitchens on Kent on August 26 and a new tower wing at Auckland’s Cordis hotel in 2021. Book that doggy pedi and facial because luxury awaits (and hopefully your best friend can come along too).
