The ivy Penthouse Hotel Suites, located above the pool deck and surrounded by lush tropical planting, demonstrate limitless living. The unusual opportunity to discount privacy concerns liberated the spatial planning. The suites comprise of a sunken lounge pit and custom bar, an enormous open bedroom, luxurious bathroom, service kitchen and, of course, an open fire place. In this seductive environment, the best of architecture, interiors, art, furniture and objects are showcased with a restrained, ageless excess over a luscious mixture of raw and refined palettes. Finishes are deliberately masculine and external in nature, sensitive to the Sydney climate.
