The Star resort in Sydney announces major refurbishment programme

The Star Sydney, an entertainment complex offering luxury accommodation, restaurants, spa facilities, a retail operation and a casino is upgrading rooms at the Astral Tower and Residences hotel, in an AUS$130m refurbishment.

The refurbishment of rooms and suites at the Astral Tower and Residences will complement The Star’s existing domestic and international luxury offering and is set for completion in mid-2016. 

John Autelitano, general manager of hotels at The Star Sydney said: "The Star Sydney is a pinnacle tourism destination in Australia and a significant contributor to the visitor economy, welcoming over 11 million visitors each year. The enhanced rooms, suites, and business facilities will ensure our competitiveness and attract visitors to the city of Sydney."

Astral Tower is being repositioned to target Generation X and experienced business travellers. With a five star offering, elegant rooms and high-end suites, a state-of-the-art club lounge, new meeting rooms and business centre, the hotel will be relaunched in 2016. It will remain operational throughout the refurbishment.

The Darling at The Star has also just completed an upgrade of its spa with the addition of a mosaic aromatherapy heated steam room with a salt water Jacuzzi, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility.
