The new 140-bedroom InterContinental Sydney Double Bay hotel has opened its doors to guests, boasting a selection of high-end retail offerings on the ground floor and an upcoming Trumps Spa.
Developer and owner Royal Hotels Australia and designer Bates Smart Architects transformed the former, delapidated Ritz Carlton property (where INXS frontman Michael Hutchence famously died in 1997) into an intimate bayside sanctuary, which InterContinental claims is the only five-star luxury hotel outside of Sydney’s central business district.
Trumps Spa will feature five treatment rooms, a sauna, steamroom and a shower or hairdressing salon. There will also be a spray tan room, while a VIP room will be on offer for guests seeking extra privacy.
The opening date for this facility has not yet been confirmed. Manel Daetz, from architecture firm Henry Corbett & Co, is the spa’s consulting designer.
Services at the spa will include a range of body treatments, massages, facials, waxing, eyelash extensions and makeup application. Full hairdressing services will also be available.
The hotel itself features a number of dining options – including a fully-separate kosher kitchen – a rooftop pool and lounge with private cabanas (pictured at top) and a 495-person capacity ballroom.
Trump Spas are a subsidiary of the Trump (as in ‘The Donald’) Hotel Collection. No detail is overlooked and no expense spared in creating a personalised experience that continually raises the bar on the five-star luxury travel experience.
