When you vacation at breathtaking Australia you may be tempted to reserve an economy hotel with dorm-style rooms and cramped beds. After your day in the Outback watching fresh water crocodiles, or diving the Great Barrier Reef, perhaps it would be exquisite to rest your weary body in one of the luxury hotels in Sydney Australia.

Coming in at number 5 on our list is the ever-fashionable Shangri-La. With a stunning view of Sydney Harbour, this hotel rates 17.5 out of 20 possible points from its customers. The decor in this 563 room hotel is striking in its Eastern-inspired airiness, and service is priority one. On the 36th floor, the Blu Horizon Bar and the Altitude Restaurant share a striking view of both the harbour and the city. The Shangri-La hosts the Alysium Spa and Health Club which include a superlative hair salon, fitness center, and Roman-style pool.

Number 4 on our list is The Observatory Hotel. Hidden away on a quiet street in the Rocks district in Sydney, this is one of Sydney’s most intimate and stylish hotels. Here opulent, spacious bedrooms offer the Regency style. Modern conveniences such as the TV, CD player and safe are concealed inside cabinets and armoires. Marble is lavished throughout the bathrooms, with sport heated towel racks and oversize bath tubs. Slippers and an umbrella are even thoughtfully provided. The Observatory’s amenities include a 20 -meter heated pool, gym, tennis court, and day spa, and children and small pets are welcome.

The Blue Sydney, also rated 18, is number 3 with its incredible views of the marina, the Harbour, and city. Situated on the wharf in Woolloomooloo, the Blue’s rooms are unique in that the roomy beds are out of the way in lofts, leaving plenty of room in the living quarters. The ambiance is richly colored and deeply textured, standing in stark opposition to the minimalist decor in a number of other establishments. An elegant Italian restaurant is one of several dining options, and the locals come to the Blue for their bar. With so much at hand, there’s no reason to head for dry land.

Counting down to number 2, the Medusa Hotel is a stylish 18th century converted Victorian townhouse located in Sydney’s boutique district. While traditional Victorian on the exterior, inside this hotel is all modern, all art. Bright, brilliant and bold, the rooms boast large beds and marble baths. Vibrant and spectacular, the Medusa attracts young and innovative visitors. While it has no bar or restaurant, never fear – Darlinghurst is home to countless shops, restaurants, and other establishments.

With amenities like Egyptian cotton sheets, fresh flowers and massage services, The Establishment Hotel tops our list at number 1, with a customer rating of 19 out of 20. This place offers well-dressed lodging in a convenient location, and its bars and restaurants are a magnet for the city’s most dazzling nightlife. This hotel just might be perfect. You can choose a room decor of either markedly Japanese, black and white with vivid slashes of color, or soft European tones. The beds are quite large and very sumptuous. The hotel’s three nightclubs host long lines on any given night – which are bypassed by hotel guests, and you’ll dine in high spirits at the Establishment’s three high class restaurants.

The Park Hyatt Sydney did not make the top 5 list, not because it is not worthy – it’s customers simply did not participate in the rating. We would be remiss, however if we did not discuss what is arguably one of the most extraordinary hotels in Australia. Looking across Sydney Cove, the elegant hotel housed within this understated facade is truly impressive. Soothing, classic European colors grace spacious rooms with sumptuous beds. Remote controls operate not only the television but the drapes – prompting a startling view of the ocean. A 24 hour butler is available to provide for your every need, and you’ll dine exquisitely in their world-class restaurant.

So, you’re traveling to the bottom side of the world – wonders about and are waiting for you to discover them. It’s conceivable that just any hotel room could be saved for just any vacation – this might be the time to live in the lap of luxury.
