1 Spread over 35 floors, SOF­I­TEL SYD­NEY Dar­ling Har­bour (left) has a splashy mar­itime de­sign by ar­chi­tect Richard Fran­cis-Jones, 590 mod­ernist rooms with wa­ter views, and myr­iad din­ing op­tions, in­clud­ing a French-themed restau­rant and Cham­pagne bar. A lounge on the fourth floor, com­plete with in­fin­ity pool and cock­tail bar, lends the precinct a fash­ion­able new en­ergy. Even the ho­tel’s gym has riv­et­ing views of the Syd­ney sky­line. sof­i­tel­syd­ney­dar­ling­har­bour.com.au

2 HO­TEL INDIGO Bali (above) is a new 289-room ho­tel in Seminyak with ex­otic land­scap­ing, graphic mu­rals and elab­o­rate carv­ings. Stan­dard guest rooms are stylish, but vil­las tempt with pri­vate pools and mar­ble bath­rooms. The prop­erty has seven din­ing op­tions, in­clud­ing a beach­front bar of­fer­ing tapas and tunes. Vi­brant fur­nish­ings sug­gest Philippe Starck – if he had spent a year in­tern­ing with tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese crafts­men. seminyak.hotelindigo.com
