Capella Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to open a new luxury hotel in Sydney, Australia in March next year.
Capella Sydney will be the brand’s first hotel in the country. It will be the transformation of a historic Department of Education Building into a luxury hotel.
The hotel will be taking over an entire city block, encircled by Loftus, Bridge and Young streets.
It will include 192 spacious guest rooms and suites ranging in size from 50m2 to 245m2.
The guest rooms feature high ceilings and spacious bathrooms, with double vanities, rain shower and separate deep-soaking bathtub.
Capella Sydney will also have a 20m swimming pool, Auriga Spa, a fitness centre, and yoga platform.
The hotel will include multiple food and beverage offerings, like Brasserie 1930s and McRae Bar, along with six meeting and conference rooms for groups of 10-80 people, on the ground floor.
It will be situated in close proximity to the city’s commercial, arts and cultural districts.
Capella Hotel Group president Cristiano Rinaldi said: “We’re looking forward to breathing new life into Sydney’s historical Department of Education Building together with Pontiac Land Group.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to establish our presence in Australia, introduce Capella’s craft of hospitality and continue our growth beyond Asia.”
The company already has properties in Ubud, Hainan, Bangkok, Hanoi, Singapore, and Shanghai.
In July this year, Capella Hotels and Resorts unveiled plans to open Capella Kyoto in Miyagawa-chō district, Japan in mid-2025.
The four-storey hotel will have 92 rooms, Japanese garden courtyard along with many dining options.
