Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney, Australia
Upper level living.
Under intense time pressures the Pure team achieved the completion of the $8 million refurbishment of the Horizon Club Rooms and Lounge at Sydney’s majestic Shangri-La Hotel.
It was, to the say the least, a complex project. Pure managed multiple overseas supply contracts, a joinery contractor that subsequently went broke, and a complicated staging process that maximised the rooms available in order to maintain the hotel’s revenue stream.
The refurbishment of the upper VIP levels comprised 89 rooms and common areas over 6 levels as well as the Horizon Club Lounge.
The Shangri-La Hotel Sydney’s vice president and general manager, Michael Cottan, said the re-launch would take service and accommodation for discerning travelers to the next level.
“The demand for our Horizon Club facilities has been overwhelming and, with our new Horizon Club floor, more guests are able to experience the higher standard of accommodation that the Horizon Club offers, as well as the acclaimed personalised service, special privileges and amenities,” he said.
The new rooms will be among the biggest hotel rooms available in Sydney. The largest one offers a vast 242 square metres of living and entertaining space with two bedrooms, an executive study room, private dining room, a personal butler and a grand piano.
The Horizon Club Lounge is a four-storey atrium, which takes in sweeping views across Sydney Harbour to the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
