The lat­est news in lux­ury at home and abroad, in­side Sof­i­tel Syd­ney Dar­ling Har­bour, cel­e­brat­ing a life in travel, the first fully au­ton­o­mous drone, Princess Grace Suite in Monaco, cus­tomise an IWC time­piece, win a Mia Fratino Deluxe Travel Wrap, villa life at The St. Regis Bali, Do­mini­can Repub­lic’s new re­sort hideaway

Syd­ney’s first new-build in­ter­na­tional five-star ho­tel of the 21st-cen­tury tow­ers over the buzz of Dar­ling Har­bour. The views take in the tourist hive be­low, as well as stretch­ing to the sky­scrapers of the CBD, the flour­ish­ing precinct of Baranga­roo and be­yond to where fer­ries ply the har­bour wa­ters. The 500-mil­lion-dol­lar Sof­i­tel Syd­ney Dar­ling Har­bour opened with much fan­fare in Oc­to­ber. The lo­ca­tion could not be more cen­tral, whether you’re a leisure trav­eller soak­ing up the Syd­ney sights or a busi­ness trav­eller at­tend­ing a con­fer­ence next door at the In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

The 590-room ho­tel is im­bued with Sof­i­tel’s sig­na­ture French art de vivre, from the wel­com­ing ‘Bon­jour’ to the well-stocked Cham­pagne Bar. Le Ri­vage Pool Bar, be­side the fourth-floor infinity pool and SoFit fit­ness cen­tre, brings the so­phis­ti­ca­tion of a Côte d’Azur beach club to Syd­ney, while ex­ec­u­tive chef Matt Coates reimag­ines French clas­sics with an Aus­tralian edge at Ate­lier by Sof­i­tel. The de­con­structed bouil­l­abaisse, in par­tic­u­lar, is a culi­nary tie to Sof­i­tel Syd­ney Dar­ling Har­bour’s “cul­tur­ally linked” French city, Mar­seille. An el­e­vated lounge pro­vides a re­treat for Club Mil­lésime guests on the 35th floor. The suites have a home-away-from-home feel, with the sig­na­ture Sof­i­tel MyBed guar­an­tee­ing a good night’s sleep. sof­i­tel­syd­ney­dar­ling­har­bour.com.au
