Capella Hotels and Resorts was named 2nd Best Hotel Brand in the world in the Travel + Leisure ‘World’s Best Awards’ in both 2021 and 2020 and consists of properties located in Singapore (read our review here), Ubud, Bangkok, Hanoi, Shanghai and Hainan. Capella Sydney will be the first hotel in the Australian market and will be followed by exciting destinations such as Japan, Maldives and South Korea in 2025.
The Department of Education building in Sydney’s Sandstone Precinct is officially opening as Capella Sydney
on 15th March 2023. Originally designed by architect George McRae in the early 1900s, the building has been meticulously restored and reimagined by Pontiac Land in collaboration with Make Architects. Capella Sydney is the first Australian property in the Capella Hotels and Resorts portfolio and is now accepting reservations.
The luxury hotel includes 192 guestrooms and suites, anchored by three ground-level food and beverage outlets: Aperture, Brasserie 1930 and McRae Bar. These publicly accessible hospitality spaces are filled with commissioned and collected artworks, sophisticated furnishings and intriguing objet d’art, all within footsteps of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and recently unveiled Quay Quarter Lanes precinct.

Representing the epitome of luxury, the beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites are replete with deluxe textiles, standalone tubs, custom Italian Frette linen and exclusive Haeckels amenities.
Staying in-house at Capella Sydney opens the doors to an exclusive world of luxury and cultural connection. The Living Room, a signature space of all Capella properties, provides a sophisticated gathering place where guests can partake in daily Capella Rituals and immerse themselves in local culture amid a thoughtful collection of artefacts. On level six, guests are invited to indulge in rejuvenating treatments at Auriga Spa, or swim in the 20-metre heated indoor pool, designed to provide the ultimate wellness experience in the heart of the city.
“Capella Sydney is not just an ode to the city and Sydneysiders, it’s an open invitation for discerning travellers from all around the world to visit Australia and experience the magic of this place we call home,” said Marc von Arnim, Capella Sydney’s General Manager. “The Capella brand is synonymous with luxury, excellence in the craft of hospitality and cultural immersion. Capella Sydney takes this to the next level through unparalleled experiences that go above and beyond the expected, underscored by world-class accommodation and dining.”
