Sydney has many destinations to offer and here are five that you really should not miss.
The Pacific Road House
This fashionable house is near Palm Beach in NSW. Just an hour’s drive from the heart of Sydney, this place is a renovation of the ‘50s residence with its cool interiors created from scratch by the legendary decorator – Greg Natale.
Surfers and beach chicks would surely love to check into the three-bedroom, two-bathroom and one media room units. With open-plan living and dining rooms, you sure are going to have fun being sun kissed as you lounge and hold your barbie parties.
The Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa
Located in Blue Mountains, NSW; this is the perfect destination if you are looking to get your country fix. This luxurious eco-retreat is right in the midst of a 4,000-acre wilderness and is just a three-hour drive from Sydney. As soon as you are there, you can dress up as a cowgirl and begin your horseback riding expedition, go mountain biking or just relax in the spa or pool.
The Capella Lodge
This is the closest island to Sydney and is your most elegant escape for lovebirds and tourists. And speaking of birds, there are many avian species here and with a binocular, you and your partner can enjoy the sights and soak up the lagoons and tropical peaks. With the hotel’s infinity pool, terrace bar, spa and stylish suites, all that is left for you to do is to have the ultimate pleasure!
Tonic Boutique Hotel
This is right in the midst of Australia’s laid-back wine belt. Home to just eight rooms and two more in a separate building, stargazing has never been this fun. Pop up a drink or two with your buddies and enjoy your feast on a deck or while dipping in the perky pool.
The Hotel Debrett
With a breathtaking view of New Zealand not far from this hotel, this is a getaway that is just three hours away from Sydney and is a neighbor to the best fashion labels. Think of the most famous NZ labels such as Zambesi, Kate Sylvester and Karen Walker and the fashion shops along High Street, Auckland have them.
Locals just love to shop but then you are not here to just empty your wallets! In the evening, you get to relax in a stylish haven with an in-house kitchen. Get ready to take pictures of yourself lying on one of the ultra bright rugs in the hotel rooms.
