Gulf travellers ‘focus on Sydney shopping’
Dubai, August 19, 2010
Middle East travellers who visit Sydney are taking more and more time out of their holiday to focus on the best places to shop in Sydney, said a statement.
Sydney has a fantastic array of shopping centres and boutique venues for every kind of spender, said the statement from Park Hotels, a leading hospitality brand.
From the opulent Opera House to Covent Garden and bustling Darling Harbour, international visitors come to Australia’s capital for the hottest fashions, art and photography, home furnishings and Australian-made souvenirs, it added.
Around 5.3 million visitors arrived in the country up to March 31 -- an increase of 3 per cent on the same period as last year, with 50 per cent being repeat holidaymakers.
Park Hyatt Sydney, located between the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, is intimate and residential in style, and reflects the beautiful Australian landscape in its architecture, design and art, the statement said.
According to latest accounts, this luxury hotel will undergo a multi-million dollar renovation in the near future, according to Park Hyatt.
The renovation will include a substantial revitalisation of the property and is expected to include the addition of three luxury rooftop suites and a complete redesign of the hotel’s guest rooms, architectural fixtures and finishes, custom designed contemporary lighting, new furniture and unique artwork by renowned Australian artists.
The hotel’s new interiors will offer a natural feel with rich layers of chocolate, cream and beige hues.
In addition to the complete makeover of accommodation, the hotel’s restaurants and bars, private dining rooms, day spa and recreational facilities will also be enhanced to reinforce Park Hyatt Sydney’s position as one of Australia’s premier hotels.
“We look forward to proceeding with our proposed renovation as this transformation will provide for an enhanced guest experience and a new benchmark in luxury,” said Park Hyatt Sydney’s general manager, Andrew Mensforth.
Park Hyatt Sydney’s proposed renovation plan has been scheduled to coincide with the hotel’s winter period to minimise disruption to guests, he added. – TradeArabia News Service
