Be immersed in the most luxurious high tea experience at the Park Hyatt. Floor to ceiling windows allow you stunning harbour views all the way across to the Sydney Opera House. The room is bathed in natural light, with plush chairs pulled up to tables set with fine bone china, champagne flutes and fresh flowers.

Primus Hotel Sydney

From entering the Art Deco atrium until taking the very last bite of your indulgent feast, you are taken on a journey of luxurious and exotic 1930s glamour at the Primus Hotel. Teas range from Moroccan Mint to an African Solstice. The selection of hedonistic cocktails isn’t modest either; A wise choice is the 1939 Absolut citron, lychee and cassis, named after the year the building was established. What is unique is the pumpkin tart, popcorn mousse and rhubarb jam that will have you scraping the bottom of the jar.

Tucked away on vibrant Sussex St in Sydney’s Darling Harbour precinct is the Hyatt Regency. Its restaurant – Sailmaker – is named so to reflect the area’s sail-making history since the 1800s.

The Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, lies in a surprisingly secluded corner of Sydney’s CBD, all the quieter on the weekends, yet is only a stone’s throw from the breathtaking scenes of the harbour bridge and opera house, and near the botanical gardens, which are perfect for a stroll-around if you’re needing to build an appetite.

There are lots of things that Shangri-La Sydney can boast about, but its view from the Blu Bar on Level 36 would have to be one of the most impressive. It’s also no surprise that there’s an equally impressive intimate High Tea way up in the sky now too.

Serving ribbon sandwiches, light and fluffy scones and dainty petit fours on a three-tiered stand, the detailed assortments are a delight to the eyes as they are to nibble.
