The Sebel Pier One Sydney as unveiled seven of the city’s most spectacular over-water suites.
Perched on-and-over Sydney Harbour, the hotel’s seven new suites have been designed by internationally renowned firm Bates Smart Architects and include four Harbour View Balcony Suites which have direct access to private, expansive balconies with sweeping Sydney Harbour views.
“We’re very excited to be offering such a premium, waterfront product to the local and international market and being so close to the bridge and Opera House, we expect these new suites to sell out well in advance come festival time and New Year’s Eve,” said The Sebel Pier One Sydney’s General Manager, Michael Sheridan.
“The new suites along with their expansive balconies will provide Sydneysiders and international guests with accommodation that offers an incredible sense of history and character, while still providing contemporary style and comfort.
“There is no other suite in the city that resonates ‘Sydney’ as much as the new balcony suites do, and we believe that they will be very popular with visitors who want to really experience Sydney while also enjoying a premier location for business and leisure.”
The largest balcony measures an impressive 40sq meters and juts out over the Pier. All the balcony suites have designer day beds and arm chairs which are positioned to maximise the panoramic views.
Designed for open-plan living, there is a seamless transition from the bedroom to the bathroom in all of the new suites, and all have an abundance of natural light due to the floor-to-ceiling wrap around windows and glass sliding doors. Each of the bathrooms have decadent, deep standalone bath tubs, twin rain showers with side jets, double brass bowl vanities and deluxe amenity kits from Appelles Apothecary.
The stand-out is the Harbour View Balcony Suite at the northern end of the Pier, which features a deep-set bathtub – the feature piece of a bathroom that overlooks the water and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Following in the steps of the Harbour Rocks Hotel – its sister property – ornamental art and designer furnishings have been sourced from around the globe and adorn the spectacular new suites.
All of the new suites feature king size beds, a marble topped wet bar with Nespresso coffee machine, marble topped working desk, two LED flat screen TVs – one of which rises from the bed base, Foxtel, iPod/iPad docking stations and WiFi internet access.
As well as the seven new suites, The Sebel Pier One Sydney has also finished renovating 22 new Waterside King and Heritage King rooms which now takes the hotel’s total room count to 189.
