Seeking perfection in Sydney
When English novelist James Hilton wrote Lost Horizon in 1933, he couldn’t have dreamed that the idyllic destination he called Shangri-La would become a synonym for perfection and paradise.
Adopting this name for a prestigious worldwide hotel group in the 1970s has proved to be a masterstroke for Shangri-La Hotels.
In its quest for perfection, Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney, has recently refurbished its elite Horizon Club floors that have 360-degree views of the city, water and distant mountains.
The aptly named Horizon Club Lounge, on level 30, has also been refurbished and increased in size. It is Australia’s biggest and most sophisticated club lounge in a five-star hotel, and its 13-metre high windows span four storeys.
The multi-million dollar renovation of the hotel, located at The Rocks, has also increased the size of the Horizon Club rooms.
The interiors have been decorated in pale gold and blue to match and reflect the Sydney Harbour views.
