After an incredible redevelopment process at the end of 2014, The Langham, Sydney is officially revealing what Australia’s newest and most exclusive five star hotel looks like post its multi-million dollar redesign.

The internationally designed five-star The Langham hotel which has long been a secret haven for A-Listers, supermodels and royalty, is now completely transformed as the newest hotel under the Hong Kong based Langham Hospitality Group’s portfolio.

Langham Hospitality Group purchased The Langham, Sydney (previously The Observatory Hotel) in 2012 from Orient Express and rebranded in the same year before confirming redesign plans in 2014. This anticipated redevelopment was executed in four short months – one of the country’s slickest, fastest hotel development projects to date.

GA Design out of London played a critical part in designing every detail including every room, structure, interior fit out and each piece of furniture inside the hotel. From the gold and white shellac finish on the reception desk, to the multi-million dollar spa redesign, to the expansive marble fireplaces in each public space, to each chair, table, coffee table, bed head, chandelier, handmade rug, interior fit out and lamp shade.


The Rooms

Comprising of 98 lavish rooms and suites, The Langham, Sydney embodies modern luxury and lavish elegance. From the stunning Grand Langham room – the largest standard room in Sydney, to the two or three bedroom Residence Suite with private chefs kitchenette, to the opulent riches of The Observatory Suite, every room boasts impeccable design, quality finishes and attention to detail.

Each room features ornate design pieces; from Vogue hard cover books, to silver Wedgwood bedside clocks and Kate Spade designer pieces.

The Restaurants

Social Sydney isn’t forgotten with new lifestyle market additions.

Palm Court hosts an opulent tea room overlooking the Western Harbour through Parisian style shutters, serving Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood.

From late afternoon onwards, Palm Court Bar treats Sydney-siders to gastronomic cocktails and jazz with some of Europe’s finest mixologists behind the bar.

Soon to be launched is the Private Butler Tennis Afternoons on the hotel’s city-scape tennis court. Then, you can finish in your tennis whites with cucumber sandwiches and Pimms & Lemonade.

Kent Street Kitchen led by Chef de Cuisine, Daniel Rudolph [formerly of est. and Guy Savoy Paris] is serving a European chic menu and features one of Sydney’s most beautiful Chef’s Table’s – a three metre white marble table in the middle of an open Chef’s kitchen.

The Spa

One of Sydney’s most famous spa facilities, The Day Spa, located at the hotel has received a multi-million dollar re-design of its own.

The famous star dazzled pool, recently voted Sydney’s #1 Hotel Pool by Wotif travellers, remains intact, being the only element of the hotel that was not changed.
