Historic Sydney hotel Pier One Sydney Harbour has officially completed its five-year transformation journey, unveiling the final stage of its $15 million redesign last week.
The final piece of the puzzle was the refurbishment of all 189 rooms and suites in the harbourside property.
The venue celebrated the milestone in style, with a lavish suite party attended by industry and special guests.
Guests arrived on board the Seven Star super yacht, enjoying a scenic harbour cruise with Perrier-Jouët and canapés from Pier One’s hatted restaurant The Gantry.
Pier One general manager Kim Mahaffy welcomed guests and invited them to explore the brand new suites and the experiential activities within.
Each of the waterside suites offered a different experience, such as a Perrier-Jouët and Hunter Lab sensory Champagne experience, prawns on a hibachi grill with The Gantry’s head chef Thom Gorringe and a bathtub filled with oysters that were shucked on demand.
As they roamed the suites, guests got a first look at the revamped accommodation which boasts a neutral colour palette and takes inspiration from the property’s maritime influence.
Room highlights include a premium mini-bar featuring Aussie tipples such as Archie Rose gin, Nespresso coffee machines, an open-design wardrobe and skincare products by Melbourne-based Hunter Lab.
Speaking on the renovations, Mahaffy said the hotel is thrilled to invite guests to experience the transformed guest rooms.
“We are Sydney’s most historic and pre-eminent lifestyle hotel, with a luxurious, yet accessible offering for guests looking for a distinctively Sydney experience right on Sydney Harbour,” she said.
