Start your day to remember at the Savoy Hotel
It is a part of human nature to seek out experiences that we feel will exhilarate and move us. We do this because we hope that this wonderful feeling will be burned into our memory so that we can not only share it with friends and family, but relive it in our own minds for years to come.
How do you make a perfect day to remember?
The best way to start is to wake up relaxed, comfortable and refreshed after enjoying a great night’s sleep. This is how you will start your day if you’ve booked a Superior A Room or Family Room at the Savoy Hotel at Double Bay. Or if there is just the two of you, escaping for a romantic getaway, just imagine waking up in one of the Executive Balcony Rooms. What a view!
The next question is what’s for breakfast? A complete continental breakfast is available from the Savoy Hotel, which is excellent value, or you can venture out into the “cafe Society” of Double Bay. With Nutrition Australia advising that the benefits of a good breakfast include improved concentration, increased metabolism and higher energy levels, this is an enjoyable step you won’t want to miss.
A natural highlight of any stay at Double Bay, would be to take advantage of our beautiful Sydney Harbour. I would highly recommend the short ferry ride to Circular Quay to begin this wonderful experience. From here it is only a leisurely stroll down to some of Sydney’s truly iconic sites. They include, the Sydney Opera House, the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you are feeling truly adventurous you may even want to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Circular Quay is also a mecca for shopping enthusiasts with choices ranging from contemporary and Australian art, wonderful wines, craft creations and of course, iconic Australian Opals.
From Circular Quay, the entire harbour opens up to you, but at only twelve minutes away, Taronga Zoo is a prime destination. If you are looking for great value, then you need to look no further than the Taronga Zoo and Ferry Pass with Sky Safari. This offer includes a two day Hop On Hop Off ferry ticket which gives you travel between Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Watsons Bay, Luna Park, Manly and Taronga Zoo. Simply Grab your ticket online, climb onto the ferry at Circular Quay and enjoy the wonderful sights of our majestic Sydney Harbour as you make your way to the Zoo.
Entry to Taronga Zoo is part of the deal so get ready to meet over 4,000 of our animal friends. The Zoo is located on an elevated piece of land next to the Harbour. This affords the visitor the most amazing views of Sydney Harbour and all of its uniquely Australian icons. With the large number of animal species represented at the Zoo visitors will have the chance to view asian elephants, Sumatran tigers, chimpanzees, giraffes, sun bears, gorillas and let’s not forget those adorable meerkats. Once you’ve used up all of your energy on foot, climb aboard the Sky Safari Cable Car, which is included in your ticket, to explore the animal habitats from above. This ticket also includes extras like the daily live shows and talks by the zoo keepers. What great value.
As the day winds down and the evening approaches, it’s time to catch the ferry back to Double Bay to choose that perfect restaurant and to explore the wonderful night life. The choices for restaurant food in Double Bay will leave you breathless. It is a truly multicultural selection with Mediterranean, Asian, Italian, Malaysian, Indian, French, Japanese, Contemporary Australian and good old fashioned Pub food available. A good way to wind down after dinner is for a Cocktail at Mrs Sippy’s or to enjoy the late night house groove at the local night spots.
How do we complete our day to remember? The same wonderful way that it started, at the comfortable, luxurious Savoy Hotel. Here we enjoy a relaxing bath or shower to wind down before settling in for the night.
