Floor-to-ceiling windows GALORE at the newly-reopened Park Hyatt Sydney

Luxe travelers to the Land Down Under were dealt a blow when the iconic Park Hyatt Sydney closed its doors almost a year ago for an Extreme Hotel Makeover. After being stripped and redesigned nearly from scratch, the hotel is set to open later this year and promises to be more extravagant than ever. With all of the major nips and tucks it's received, you'd swear it doesn't look a day over its 21-years.

Views of Sydney Harbor and the Opera House catch the limelight with the new design, with floor-to-ceiling windows installed seemingly everywhere the builders could squeeze them into the property. Maximizing on the scenery, an entirely new floor is being constructed for three new rooftop suites, all of which will have said expansive windows opening onto private balconies that overlook the Harbor.

The sprawling suites get a double-dose of opulence with twice the number of butlers serving guests and "restaurant-style, hand-carried in-room dining." Begone, oh-so-passé roll cart!

Meanwhile, nods to the local culture and environment are peppered throughout the property, with locally-sourced timber used as the base of its green-friendly design (energy-efficient lighting, water-saving devices, etc.). You can't gut and rebuild a hotel in this day and age without going the eco-chic route, after all.

Self-proclaimed as a destination for "discerning, affluent individuals," it definitely seems like the Park Hyatt Sydney has opted for lavishness to the nth degree. Go big, or go home. The hotel went big, with many a mammoth window to match.

So far, we don't have a concrete opening date nor any room rates but this is essentially a brand-new Park Hyatt in THE most desirable location in all of Sydney so you best be prepared to spend.
