Come for the crazy views overlooking the harbour, but stay for all the most luxurious hotel features — we're talking boojie spa treatments, a sky high restaurant and bar and so much more.

The views from Shangri-La Sydney look as if they have been plucked right out of a Tourism Australia ad. They are crazy perfect.
Look to the left, and you'll see the Harbour Bridge up and close. Roll over in bed and look to your right, and you've got the Opera House just sitting there looking right back at you. It's unbelievable.
And yes, like most places in Sydney, you'll definitely be paying for that view. The Shangri-La isn't what we would call budget friendly, but you get a whole lot for that price tag. It's not hard to see why Shangri-La Sydney is one of the best hotels in the city.
And everything you get is centred around those panoramic harbour views. Each of the 564 rooms gets a different angle of the harbour. The restaurant and bar — appropriately named Altitude — up on level 36, are also made for gawking out at the surrounding Sydney landmarks.
As you'd expect from a 5-star hotel, the Shangri-La Sydney also comes with its very own opulent spa facility. Massages and treatments are based on traditional wellness practices shared by many Asian cultures. Chi, The Spa, also features treatments highlighting Australian healing techniques and botanical ingredients indigenous to the region.
Relax here before heading to the gym, indoor swimming pool, hot whirlpool bath or sundeck. Deep dive into that self-care life.
We could think of worse places to rest your head for a few nights.
