Visiting 100 of the world’s most luxurious boutique hotels in 20 countries, it’s safe to say Lancemore Group CEO Julian Clark had a lot of inspiration. Taking the best bits from each, he has today opened Larmont Sydney, a 5-star boutique hotel in Potts Point.
The first CBD property for the family-owned company, the hotel seamlessly brings together European luxury with Scandinavian simplicity. Fancy a mini-bar stocked with Dom Perignon? What about a choice of luxe spa products to pamper yourself in-room? Or even a private balcony for your fur baby to sunbathe in solitude? Larmont Sydney has it all. “We wanted to create a hotel that draws on the best features of hotels around the world to bring together foodies, wellness enthusiasts and design conscious guests alike,” explains Julian. “Our ethos of true generosity is evidenced by integrated luxury, technology and genuine hospitality.”
Designed by global architecture firm HASSEL, the boutique hotel features 103 rooms and suites across seven floors, with harbour and city views. “Our guests have pretty great homes to live in when they’re not travelling,” says Julian. “So with every choice we asked ourselves ‘is this better than what I can get at home?’”
Luxury finishes include marble benchtops, leather bedheads, freestanding baths and separate rain showers; combined with must-have technology like Apple TV and Bose Sound Touch. When it comes to food, guests can order from local restaurants via Deliveroo and UberEats or dine in the adjoining restaurant, The Hyde. Best yet, they can enjoy happy hour with a complimentary first drink and canapés.
