I don’t know about you, but these photos from all the way up top at the Shangri-La Hotel keep popping up on my social feeds. And then a friend sent me one telling me to LOOK at how absolutely gorgeous the views are with a wink-wink, nudge-nudge. And I replied with this list of free lookouts over Sydney.
If you want to get a Rapunzel-like shot, you’re first going to need to get yourself a room with a view. And a view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge no less. (Or, get both the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in the shot if you want to up the ante.)
One night at Sydney’s Shangri-La is going to set you back over $350, and that’s in the Deluxe Darling Harbour Room—the hotel’s most popular room type—which won’t get you views of either the famous coathanger or the Opera House sails.
However, upgrade to the Deluxe Sydney Harbour Room and you will enter a luxuriously furnished hotel room with breathtaking panoramic views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and all the harbour happenings.
The cost? For one night you’re looking at almost $500. Just think about the views from those windows, which are the largest windows of any harbourfront hotel. This way you can enjoy the vistas and daydream your life away, imagining what life would be like in a fairytale.
Way up on level 36, the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney does one of the most talked about high teas in the city. With sweeping views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the CBD, you’ll get to savour three tiers of decadent desserts and savoury snacks as you look out and beyond the water.
Tease yourself a little and take a look at the hotel rooms and suites at Sydney’s Shangri-La Hotel.
