MASSIVE REFURB HAS THAT MANLY FEEL
AFTER TWO years of renovations and a price tag of $30 million, one of this country’s most famous beachfront hotels has a fresh new look.
Manly Pacific in Sydney features a refreshed façade, 213 redesigned rooms, including The Infinity Residence and nine ocean-facing coastal suites.
There’s also a rooftop pool and bar, a sundeck with an infrared sauna, 55 North – an eclectic new lobby bar – and a conference and events floor.
Across each of its eight floors, the hotel has been reimagined by Australian designers Coco Republic to reflect coastal living, with rooms bathed in natural light and expansive views of the ocean through Manly’s Norfolk pines.
A signature fragrance derived from Australian botanicals local to the North Head flows throughout the hotel’s spaces.
Encouraging guests to connect with the surrounding community, Manly Pacific wants all visitors to discover the local area’s rich surfing history, its thriving arts scene and boutique shopping.
“We’re showcasing Manly’s creative community throughout the hotel, from displaying the works of local photographers to heroising local produce on our plates and featuring artisan craft pieces throughout the property,” said Dylan Cole, General Manager.
“At every touch point, we’ve considered the extra level of detail guests now expect from a great hotel experience, with a key focus on sustainability initiatives, such as smarter energy-saving room controls to electric car charging stations.
“We’ve brought a new level of sophistication to Manly without losing the quintessential way of life of the Northern Beaches, from its laid-back lifestyle and strong connection to the sea and wellbeing.”
