New Luxury Hotels in Australia and New Zealand

Introducing two new luxury hotels that have opened their doors in Australia and New Zealand in recent weeks. From Sydney’s sparkling harbour to New Zealand’s spectacular Southern Alps, a chic new city stay and a stunning private villa add to some of the hottest new luxury hotel openings for 2020:

Crown Sydney, Sydney – Australia

A new level of luxury has arrived in Sydney! Towering over the new Barangaroo precinct, the city’s tallest hotel, Crown Sydney has taken its place on the city skyline offering 349 spacious and indulgent guest rooms (including 20 luxury villas and two premium Ultra-Luxe villas); each one appointed with every modern comfort and designed to showcase the city through floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

In signature Crown-style, the new luxury hotel is complemented by a resort-style pool and sun terraces with panoramic views, tennis court, decadent day spa, boutique shopping and a collection of signature restaurants (including NOBU Sydney, Woodcut, a’Mare and more!).


Mt Isthmus, near Wanaka – New Zealand South Island

New Zealand’s newest luxury lodgings have opened their doors to welcome the most indulged of guests in spectacular surrounds and perfect privacy.

Sitting on a 7,000 acre South Island station, enjoying uninterrupted Lake Hawea views, all-new super-luxe Mt Isthmus by the Lindis Group is an exceptional, sole-use, full-service, 4 suite private villa is inspired by its equally impressive surrounds. Architectural mastery, superlative interiors, exceptional service and breathtaking nature await.


These spectacular properties join a line up of new luxury hotels across our regions including a raft of new luxury hotels in Auckland and stunning new private cruising options for a luxury holiday afloat.
