A luxury stay in Sydney awaits you at Shangri-La Sydney. You'll be within steps of The Big Dig Archaeology Education Centre and within a short 5-minute stroll of Circular Quay. Highlights at this hotel include a full-service spa, a restaurant, and an indoor swimming pool.

A day of pampering at CHI, THE SPA can include deep-tissue massages, detox wraps, and body wraps along with access to the sauna and spa tub. The restaurant, Altitude Restaurant, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Blu Bar on 36 is the hotel's own cocktail bar.

Towering over sensational Sydney Harbour, Shangri-La Sydney in the historic Rocks district has extraordinary views of the city's iconic landmarks through huge floor-to-ceiling windows.

Book up a proper pampering at Shangri-La Sydney’s spa in a splendidly serene atmosphere and with a host of holistic treatments.

We chose this hotel for convenience to the bridge climb and a little bit of luxury and it was perfect. The room was very comfortable and the staff were lovely. The dining exceeded expectations, definitely recommend breakfast, dinner and high-tea.
