One of Manly’s most recognised beachside landmarks has completed an exhaustive two-year renovation to reveal a sparkling $30m makeover. Manly Pacific offers the best views over Manly Beach and front row seats to all the action in the beachside suburb. Its new and improved features include 213 redesigned rooms, a rooftop pool and bar and a sundeck with an infrared sauna. Complete with sunny interiors and light palettes, the hotel pays homage to the local community and culture. Interestingly, a signature fragrance derived from local botanicals will also waft through the hotel’s spaces giving it a unique Australian touch.
The hotel allows guests the opportunity to experience the very best of Sydney’s coastal lifestyle. Drawing on the natural landscapes of the Northern Beaches, expect light-filled rooms, soft and nuetral palletes, pale bleached woods, and travertine stone accents that reflect the sand.
New lodgings include nine ocean-facing, two-bedroom Coastal Suites customised to help you relax and rejuavenate. On offer are natural stone bathrooms and fresh foliage along with a customisable ‘wellness menu’ that features a Peloton bike and classes, yoga mat, Leif skincare and LaGaia face-masks.
Also available are 12 one-bedroom Sun Lounger rooms which feature ocean views and deck chairs on a private 100sqm terrace.
New food and dining features include an elegant new bar called 55 North with an inventive cocktail menu and more options for ocean gazing. In addition, guests can dine at two excellent restaurants with Japanese fusion from Tokyo Joe, and a coastal menu from Bistro Manly by Executive Chef Ryan Dawson with all the French flair. The Lilly Pilly Pop VIP welcome cocktail uses native Lilly Pilly Manly Spirits gin which is sourced from the edible pink flowers on the coastal dunes of the Northern Beaches headland and topped with a smoke bubble.
Keen to take in the views from above? Head to the nook bar at the rooftop pool and get boujee with caviar, champagne, seafood nibbles and all the views.
“We’re showcasing Manly’s creative community throughout the hotel, from displaying the works of local photographers to heroising local produce on our plates and featuring artisan craft pieces throughout the property,” General Manager Dylan Cole said.
