The Darling, Sydney’s newest hotel, will breathe new life into Sydney when it opens in October 2011,  on the edge of Sydney harbour.

The boutique accommodation will boast panoramic views of the city skyline, Harbour Bridge and out to the Blue Mountains and included 171 stylish rooms and suites, with the top floors dedicated to the ultimate in luxury, featuring two bedroom penthouse suites. The suites, uniquely designed by renowned LA designer, Lawrence Lee, feature floor-to-ceiling Sydney harbour views, bespoke furniture, fireplaces, media rooms, butler service and a private VIP arrival.

Sydney’s newest hotel, The Darling will open in October this year.

The Darling is a key feature in the $860 million refurbishment and extension of The Star, transforming it into a one-of-a-kind entertainment destination and a strong addition to Sydney’s overall leisure landscape. The entire complex will be re-orientated to face Darling Harbour, plus will introduce over 20 new bars, cafes and restaurants, a shopping area and a fully refurbished casino when it re-opens towards the end of the year.

The Darling has been designed as a stand-alone hotel, built in addition to the existing hotel and apartments, The Darling will bring the total rooms and suites at The Star to over 650 across three towers. 

“Our philosophy of The Darling is to take every aspect, whether it is a water glass or a coat hanger, and pay close attention to its form and function. From the coloured, soft coat hangers, to the hand-made drinking glasses in guest rooms. From the Egyptian cotton thread count bed sheets to the quality of the mattresses,” said new hotel general manager, Drew Schlesinger,

A day spa with 16 private rooms is set to deliver pampering with an extensive array of Asian and European inspired treatments.  

The hotel will also be home to a contemporary Japanese restaurant called Sokyo, from Chase Kojima, formerly with Nobu restaurants.  

A sophisticated new retail area will feature some of the leading luxury brands and will be conveniently located between the hotel, refurbished casino, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Reservations for The Darling will start from August 2011. The Star will open its new bars, restaurants and retail collection from September whilst The Darling opens in late October 2011.
