Crown Sydney has opened its luxury hotel Crown Towers and restaurant line-up including a’Mare, Woodcut, Nobu and Yoshii’s Omakase.

Located in the Barangaroo district of central Sydney, the ‘six star’ 349-room property was designed by Britain’s Chris Wilkinson.

Claiming to be Australia’s ‘most luxurious’ hotel, it is 275m in height and features amenities such as a free observation deck at 250 metres, an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court, fitness centre as well as spa facilities for the guests.

Dubbed Crown Spa Sydney, the spa facility includes terraces for yoga and meditation, relaxation rooms, vitality pools, experience showers, and infrared saunas.

The interior of each room is said to be designed to offer a sophisticated, modern backdrop that captures the essence of the hotel’s harbourside setting.

Speaking on the launch, Crown Sydney’s CEO Peter Crinis said: “Crown Towers and the restaurant and bar line-up will be a unique addition to Barangaroo’s already thriving food scene, as well as provide Sydney with a world-class hotel that will allow the city to compete with other major global tourism hubs.”

Led by chef Ross Lusted and Sunny Lusted, Crown Towers’ Woodcut restaurant will feature Australian cuisine and cooking with wood, charcoal and steam.

a’Mare will offer classic Italian fine dining to the guests, while chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Nobu will feature a mix of Nobu classics and new dishes by Harold Hurtada.

Restaurant Silks will bring traditional Cantonese cuisine to Crown Sydney while Yoshii’s Omakase will provide the guests with a twelve-seat fine dining room and ten-course Japanese Omakase.

Other restaurants that have opened in Crown Sydney include Teahouse, TWR, Epicurean, and 88 Noodle.

In April this year, Crown Group opened its new Skye Suites hotel in Green Square, Sydney, following a surge in demand for longer-term stays amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
