Five new hotel openings in Australia in 2021 and 2022
Australia’s infrastructure boom is continuing with thousands of new five-star hotel rooms being added across major Australian destinations in the next two years.
When the Ritz-Carlton Melbourne opens in the heart of the city in mid-2021, it will be the tallest hotel in Australia, with “sky” hotel check-in located on level 79 and 263 luxury rooms with panoramic views of Melbourne. A day spa, restaurants and bars and a 500-seat ballroom will also be part of the property’s offering.
The launch of the Ritz-Carlton Melbourne follows the return of the Ritz-Carlton brand to Australia with the Ritz-Carlton Perth opening on Australia’s west coast in 2019.
The Langham will open its third Australian hotel in late 2021, within AUD $1 billion three tower complex, The Jewel. Alongside 169 rooms, the hotel will feature a spa, restaurants and bars, a sky terrace and a selection of meeting and event spaces, including a 7,534 sq. ft ballroom, capable of hosting 800 people standing.
The largest W Hotel in the world is expected to open in Australia in 2022, with the 593-room W Sydney set to debut in new development the Ribbon, a spectacular new addition to Sydney’s skyline in Darling Harbour, close to International Convention Centre Sydney and incentive offerings in the centre of Sydney.
