Heading across the ditch? A sleek new hotel has just opened in the heart of Sydney

Capella Hotels and Resorts, known for its luxurious properties around the world, has just opened its first Australian address, Capella Sydney. Located in Sydney’s historic Sandstone Precinct, and originally designed by architect George McRae in the early 1900s, the heritage-listed Department of Education building has been meticulously restored and reimagined, now featuring 192 guestrooms and suites, three spectacular food and beverage outlets, a sumptuous spa and wellbeing centre and a 20-metre heated indoor pool.

Inside the Capella Sydney, an exquisite collection of artworks, curated furnishings and intriguing objets d’art collide to cultivate a sense of contemporary sophistication, while clever use of materials and a strategic harnessing of natural light give the hotel a warmth that would make anyone feel immediately at home.

The rooms are beautifully appointed with deluxe textiles, custom Italian Frette linen, standalone tubs and exclusive Haeckels amenities, with the crown jewel being the 235-square-metre Capella Suite on the ninth floor. Given the hotel’s enviable location only a short walk from the iconic Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the recently-unveiled Quay Quarter Lanes precinct, alongside the range of immersive experiences it offers guests who want to see Sydney in a whole new way, Capella Sydney is the epitome of luxury and cultural connection, and is just what the City has been missing.
