Park Hyatt review: Hotel offer insane room deal for Vivid 2024

It’s undoubtedly one of the most magical times of the year to visit Sydney, even if you’ll be trading balmy summer nights for your favorite woolly hat.

Vivid 2024 has well and truly begun, with a series of mega light installations, music performances, food festivals and experiences on offer every night for the next two weeks.

The festival, which runs until June 15, will take place at various locations across Sydney, including Haymarket and Ultimo, Darling Harbour, the CBD (Pitt Street), Barangaroo, Walsh Bay, Circular Quay and the Royal Botanical Gardens.

But for a truly unparalleled view of what is arguably the best seat (or bed) in the city, there’s only one place to be for the perfect vantage point this winter.

Without even having to leave their room, guests at the luxurious Park Hyatt hotel can relax and unwind in their bathrobes (yes, please) while sipping champagne from their balcony, all while taking in the magic of Vivid as the light show unfolds against the backdrop of most iconic monuments of the city.

But you don’t have much time, as guests literally have until mid-June to enjoy one of the city’s most luxurious two-night stays.

The Vivid at the Park stay package, offered by the hotel for the duration of Vivid, includes a two-night stay in a select room (depending on the package chosen), complete with full breakfast for up to two guests per day at The Dining Room (which has uninterrupted views both day and night).

Guests will also appreciate the convenience of valet parking (because let’s face it, finding a space on the street during Vivid is not an option).

Additionally, guests will receive a generous $350 dining voucher, redeemable once per stay, to be consumed at any of the hotel’s dining options.

When you step out of the comfort of your 5-star room, you won’t be disappointed with a late-night dinner at James Viles’ Dining Room.

During Vivid, guests will enjoy delicious dishes inspired by the color, creativity and energy of Vivid with its prix fixe menu priced at $125 per person. Some of the highlights on the menu include the lightly cured kingfish with cultured cream, pomelo and green cavatelli or the O’Connor fillet with dug up mushrooms and kampot pepper sauce.

But be sure to leave room for dessert, which has been dubbed the “creative pinnacle” of the hotel’s menu.

The Komontu 80% Valrhona chocolate pudding with warm chocolate mousse was an absolute favourite, for many. But guests can’t go past the Crimson Spin, a visual masterpiece on a plate that embraces Vivid’s “Humanity” theme. Dessert involves Leonardo da Vinci’s helicopter drawings and Damien Hirst’s spin paintings.

It’s truly a dessert to hold in your hand, with flavors to match.

Located between the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Park Hyatt’s location is perhaps the best location possible during the event.

Stroll along the waterfront Light Walk, just steps from the hotel lobby. Or witness the harbor transform into a dynamic canvas, as the historic Customs House and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia come to life.

This year, the sails of the Sydney Opera House will be transformed each evening by a projected fabric tapestry for 2023 Archibald Prize winner Julia Gutman’s retelling of the myth of Narcissus, creating a truly unique spectacle.

But the stay isn’t cheap: with packages starting at $1,280 per night in one of the hotel’s King rooms with a 2-night minimum stay.
