Manly Pacific M Gallery's new look has been unveiled after two years of refurbishment.
The standout hotel in one of Sydney's favourite beachside suburbs has undergone a $30 million transformation.
Behind the refreshed façade are 213 redesigned rooms including The Infinity Residence and nine ocean-facing Coastal Suites.
Hotel facilities include a rooftop pool and bar, a sundeck with an infrared sauna, 55 North - a new lobby bar - and a conference and events floor.
Across each of its eight floors, the hotel has been reimagined by leading Australian designers Coco Republic - with many rooms having views of the ocean through Manly's signature Norfolk pines.
The Infimity Residence is 177 sqm suite with underfloor heating (not normally needed in balmy Manly), a fireplace, a kitchenette, an en suite bathroom with black free-standing stone bathtub, and a living and dining room opening up to a private terrace with ocean views.
Think OTT here, with guests welcomed with a beach towel personalised with their initials, customised pillows, fine linens, freshly cut flowers, LaGaia beauty products and their own Beach Butler, on call throughout their stay.
Good news for wine lovers: the mini-bar comes with two Vintec wine fridges that boast the likes of Roederer Cristal Brut and Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay, as well as a premium range of whisky, spirits, coffee and chocolate from local providores.
For those wishing to entertain a few well-heeled friends, the Beach Butler can arrange for a mixologist to serve cocktails.
The nine ocean-facing, two-bedroom, two-bathroom Coastal Suites sound similarly ultra luxe.
55 North bar is joined by Japanese fusion restaurant Tokyo Joe and a French-accented coastal menu from Bistro Manly.
“We're showcasing Manly's creative community throughout the hotel, from displaying the works of local photographers to heroising (a new word to me) local produce on our plates and featuring artisan craft pieces throughout the property,” says general manager Dylan Cole.
