The Langham Sydney
One of the earliest patches of land colonized by Europeans, the maze like streets of The Rocks is a fascinating mixture of archaeological interest, art galleries, picturesque cafes, craft shops, historic pubs and public housing. Against this backdrop, The Langham Sydney brings traditional hospitality with aplomb: think mahogany furniture, swathes of rich prints and marbled bathrooms. The heritage style carries through into The Globe Bar & Brasserie, which serves up one of Sydney’s best-known high teas, complete with scones and delicate finger sandwiches. The 20m indoor pool ranks amongst the city’s most impressive, with its beachy murals and LED spangled ceiling, and the Babor facial treatments at the adjacent Day Spa are simply divine.
