Langham Sydney Lobby

The Langham, Sydney has re-opened its doors this week (Dec 2) after a AUD$30 million grand transformation.

World class design firm, GA Design, has worked direct from London with luxury building experts, ICMG and The Langham Executive Team, to ensure every construction accent is enthralled in perfection.

“GA’s vision, in conjunction with The Langham global brand power, is set to create a new addition to the Australian luxury sector that will transcend the market,” said The Langham, Sydney General Manager, Sonia Lefevre.

Langham Sydney Guestroom

Langham Hospitality Group purchased The Langham, Sydney [previously The Observatory Hotel] in 2012 from Orient Express and rebranded in the same year with great success. The executive team allocated two years to carefully appraise the Sydney space before confirming redevelopment plans in 2014.

“No expense has been spared in creating this elegant harbourside retreat for our guests,” she said.

“This is a truly international product, designed to offer Sydney an asset that doesn’t currently exist in terms of opulence, elegance and luxury.”

This acclaimed project will see internationally designed spaces paired with eclectic interior furnishings and every corner of this magnificent hotel has been given a grand treatment. Each light switch, fitting, fixture, chandelier, every piece of marble is being replaced with a more superior product.

Hand curated art by Sotheby’s, Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood, an immersive fine dining concept at Sydney’s newest offering, Kent Street Kitchen, an exclusive new day spa, five brand-new, lavish event spaces for the glitterati of the city to enjoy, plus Sydney’s largest lead-in guestrooms with Langham’s signature terraces and balconies, is just a taste of the modern luxury to follow.

“The Langham, Sydney hasn’t just undergone a refurbishment. This is a grand transformation,” Lefevre said.

Rates at The Langham, Sydney start from AUD$635 per night.
