How To Plan The Perfect Luxury Getaway to Sydney, Australia


We all need to take a break once in a while. After all, we work most of our lives, day in and day out. We’re entitled to take some time off, so you should take some every year. A trip away is the perfect thing to do when you need to recharge your batteries. You’ll return to your occupation refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle the work again. 

And a luxury escape can be the perfect way to unwind, as pampering yourself will do wonders for your body, mind and spirit. Splashing out on such a trip could be just what the doctor ordered. Sure, it will cost a bit, but life is short and holidays are precious, so why not invest in a good time? This helpful article will share how you can plan the perfect luxury Sydney getaway. Read on to discover more…

Book Your Luxury Accommodation in Advance

It’s always worth booking well in advance if you’re looking for luxury, and what’s more luxurious than the stunning Park Hyatt Sydney? Booking in advance saves you that last minute panic of attempting to land some great accommodation, only to find that everywhere is booked out. This tends to happen during holiday periods, so if you’re planning your getaway during such a period, definitely book a few months ahead. This way, you’re not left disappointed. A luxury hotel is also the perfect accommodation for an opulent adventure. You’ll feel pampered and preened as you relax in your suite. The staff will bend over backwards to accommodate you, and you’ll feel like royalty.

Hire a Limousine to Get Around

Want to experience Sydney in true style? Why not hire a limousine to get around the city? This is the most luxurious way of getting from A to B and sure beats dealing with taxis or Uber’s all day long. You can lounge in the back as your chauffeur worries about the traffic and getting you to your destinations. Sip some drinks, flick through your phone, take a few selfies and enjoy the ride – in style. 

See the Opera

Another luxurious activity you can partake in is to see an opera show at the Sydney Opera House. This unmistakable landmark hosts various opera events throughout the year, so check out their website to see what is coming up during your trip. Book some tickets and make a night of it – get dressed or dolled up and indulge in some culture. And, don’t worry if opera isn’t your thing,  mainstream rock acts sometimes play at the Opera House, so you might be able to catch a big-name band there during your stay.

Indulge in a Day Spa

One way to plan for a fancy trip to Sydney is to book a session at a day spa ahead of time. There are quite a few in Sydney, so you’re spoiled for choice. You can book a spa bath, facial, manicure, pedicure and top it off with a massage. If you’re heading on your trip with a partner or friends, this can be an excellent way to bond on your trip, as you all get pampered from head to toe. 

Experience Fine Dining

Sydney has several fine dining establishments that you can book into, and you’ll want to do this ahead of time, as they are often booked out weeks, if not months, in advance. Pair your meal with an expensive bottle of wine or bubbly; you’ll feel amazing as you sample delicious foods and delectable desserts.

Take a Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

You can book a sunrise hot air balloon ride outside of Sydney in either the Hunter Valley or Camden. You’ll be aloft just before sunrise and pass over the verdant countryside and gorgeous valleys. You’ll enjoy some snacks on the flight, and some packages offer a gourmet breakfast with some bubbles after the flight. 

Enjoy Drinks at a High-End Cocktail Bar

Our final tip is a fun one! Why not plan for a night out at one of Sydney’s finest Cocktail Bars? There are a few to choose from, with each providing a range of delicious mixed drinks. You might want to select an evening where you have nothing planned for the next day because if you overindulge, you’ll need at least the morning to recover. Maybe pack some panadol, too.


In this helpful article, we’ve detailed how you can plan the perfect luxury Sydney getaway. You’ll visit the iconic city in true style by following these tips. Don’t forget to book a five-star hotel, as you’ll need a home base for the trip. Also, this is by no means an exhaustive list; there are many other luxury activities you can do in Sydney. Why not get Googling and find a few more to really make the most of your time there?
