After more than five years and $15 million, Pier One Sydney Harbour Hotel has unveiled the full refurbishment of all its rooms and suites.
The project was overseen by architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer who are experienced in working with historic, heritage buildings. The 1912-building has been revamped throughout its 189 guest rooms.
At a lavish launch event, guests arrived in five-star style onboard super-yacht Seven Star, after cruising Sydney harbour and sipping on Perrier-Jouët and canapés from Pier One’s hatted restaurant The Gantry.
We were invited to mingle throughout the bridge-facing suites of the property where bathtubs of all sorts of delicacies were on offer – including a tub of oysters shucked by a very patient staff member; a tub of more Perrier-Jouët champagne; desserts; and from one of the suite’s decks, fresh seafood was prepared by The Gantry head chef Thom Gorringe on a hibachi grill.
Archie Rose Distillers have curated a new cocktail menu at Bar One. At the event, the premium spirits company offered guests a mix-your-own-adventure spritz experience, alongside Australian-made Hunter Lab, Pier One’s new skincare partner, who created uniquely scented skincare products for guest to leave with. In the rooms, signature scents for guests have been specially formulated for the hotel.
Rooms also feature Nespresso coffee machines, an open-design wardrobe, brass fittings, compartments for all accoutrements and Dyson Supersonic hairdryers.
Bathroom amenities will include a curated range of Melbourne-based natural skincare products from Hunter Lab, featuring signature scents specially formulated for Pier One.
Renovated rooms and suites are available to book here, with rates starting at $349.
