InterContinental Sydney Double Bay Opens!

Earmarked as one of the most exclusive properties in Australia, the InterContinental Sydney Double Bay is the only luxury hotel outside Sydney’s CBD. Offering intimate glamour and privacy, guests and visitors to the hotel will be provided with an entirely unique and unrivaled experience. Acquired and refurbished by Royal Hotels Australia, the multi-million dollar development of InterContinental Sydney Double Bay epitomises luxury and elegance and is pivotal to the resurgence of the esteemed Double Bay area.

The hotel offers world-class accommodation, unique event spaces, stunning views of Double Bay village and Bay, unparalleled service and an abundance of dedicated amenities. The elegance of its facilities and the personalisation of service will prove popular with the high-calibre of clientele for which the bayside address is renowned.

Upon entering InterContinental Sydney Double Bay by its original marble reception, guests and
visitors will be wowed by the stunning architecture and interior of the hotel, characterised by a
blend of contemporary design and beautifully-reinstated features, including Italian white marble
and grey-green marble fireplace. Each of the 140 guestrooms and suites is exquisitely furnished, with most opening out onto European fashioned balconies. The hotel’s original Grand Ballroom has been restored and will undoubtedly be the venue of choice for Sydney’s premium weddings and events, with a capacity to host up to 495 guests cocktail-style.

For smaller-scale events and conferences there are an additional six spaces, all of which feature
state-of-the-art technology and design. In addition to its breath-taking décor, the hotel’s prime location offers guests some of Sydney’s best views. Situated in the tranquil suburb of Double Bay, just 13 kilometres from the airport and five kilometres from the CBD, there are magnificent views of the Bay, the village, the hotel’s provincial French courtyard and Sydney’s magnificent harbour. Arguably the best vista is enjoyed from the hotel’s dramatic new addition, the rooftop infinity pool, featuring a private bar and lounge area with cabanas; a perfect retreat for those looking to relax on holiday or after a long day of work.

The ultimate venue to enjoy a delicious cocktail, InterContinental Sydney Double Bay’s Stillery
concept gin bar is anticipated to be one of the city’s hottest new haunts. Overlooking the Double Bay village, guests and Sydney locals will sink into luxurious leather sofas while sipping on their favourite cocktail, chosen from a wide array of unique and rare bottles of the spirit. When it comes to dining the options at InterContinental Sydney Double Bay are plentiful. The pinnacle is Stockroom - headed up by Executive Chef, Julien Pouteau – a destination restaurant using seasonal, market-fresh produce prepared using techniques such as curing, smoking, pickling and cooking with a robata grill.

Guests can also enjoy culinary delights in the hotel’s exclusive Club InterContinental lounge and
spacious French provincial courtyard, landscaped with original stone, a collection of evergreen
trees and a manicured fragrant garden. Additional dining options can be found on the ground floor retail precinct of the building, including Henley’s Wholefoods, contemporary Japanese offering, Sake Restaurant & Bar, and a restaurant and bar concept by local hospitality outfit, The Group. Also on this floor is 24-hour gym Snap Fitness with dedicated personal trainers and a wellness centre.
