6 FEBRUARY 2019 – Crown Group’s two five-star urban resorts SKYE Hotel Suites – one in Parramatta and one in Sydney, celebrate Chinese New Year with a surprise gift for selected customers. Guests will be welcomed on arrival with eye-catching Chinese theme decorations in shades of gold and red, as well as some delicious fortune cookies. Complimentary minibar will be offered for those who book direct, while the very lucky few will be provided red envelopes with a surprise luxury gift inside to bring home for this auspicious New Year – from Marc Jacobs perfume to scented candles.

According to the Chinese Zodiac calendar, February 5 2019 marks the start of the Year of the Pig. To celebrate this auspicious year, SKYE Hotel Suites offers domestic and international travellers a chance to enjoy the festival spirit with Chinese themed celebration to make their New Year experience at SKYE Hotel Suites memorable.

Crown Group Director of Hotels and Suites Wayne Taranto said, “We want to create a special welcome for all guests in the New Year, whilst staying in our luxurious-designed apartment hotel. A sense of belonging and celebration and a welcoming atmosphere just like they would enjoy staying at home, in their home country, welcomed by families.

“We endeavour to make every single guest’s journey at SKYE Suites enjoyable and memorable. The first and last impression is incredibly important to us.”

Guests who book via will receive complimentary mini during their stay, available at SKYE Hotel Suites Parramatta and Sydney. Random guests will receive red envelopes with a surprise luxury gift inside – Marc Jacobs perfume or a luxe scented candle.

Crown Group’s first boutique serviced apartment SKYE Hotel Suites Parramatta opened in August 2017. Situated within the multi-award winning mixed-use development V by Crown Group building, it has 72 luxury studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom suites with bespoke furnishings and fittings. Each features Kevin Murphy toiletries, pre-stocked mini-bar, the unique ability to choose your own mattress firmness on each side of the bed, keyless entry and ‘virtual concierge’ tablets in every suite to access all hotel services.

V by Crown Group itself is an iconic Sydney landmark. Designed by Allen Jack + Cottier and Koichi Takada Architects, the striking tower houses a diverse mix of 514 residence apartments and hotel suites along with architecturally designed indoor and outdoor spaces. All hotel guests will have access to the building’s luxurious five-start urban resort-style facilities including 25m outdoor swimming pool, gym, expansive foyer, conference rooms, vibrant alfresco dining, retail piazza and Nick and Nora’s rooftop bar.

The second SKYE Suites opened in Sydney in November 2018 and has 73 luxury serviced apartments.

SKYE Suites Sydney also offers a luxury five-star resort experience in the heart of the city featuring an ice cave-themed lobby, dreamy indoor swimming pool and excellent gym, situated within the 25-story residential apartment tower Arc by Crown Group designed by globally renowned architect Koichi Takada.

Each superior-sized apartment features timeless interior finishes, complete with DeLonghi appliances, Vittoria coffee machines and Kevin Murphy toiletries and haircare products. There is complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as laundry facilities, well-stocked mini bars and a bespoke bedding firmness menu.

“Both SKYE Suites are conveniently located in the heart of the cities of Parramatta and Sydney, just minutes from the best Sydney could offer – everything is on our doorstep,” said Mr Taranto.

“With SKYE Suites, we are redefining the boundaries of the five-star luxury hotel experience, with the seamless combination of excellent atmosphere of an urban resort, the convenience and comfort of an apartment and the amenities of a hotel; we are also creating a sense of belonging, a shared community – we want to make sure every single guest is valued and welcomed here.”

Crown Group will launch the third SKYE Hotel Suites in Green Square later this year which has already attracted great attention around the world.
