Skye Suites Hotel Network Is Also Listed In 2020 Sydney’s Best Hotels In Luxuryhotelsguide.com Version
Jakarta, 14 July 2020 – A significant achievement achieved by Skye Suites hotel chain, which was founded by an Indonesian-born entrepreneur in Sydney.
Skye Suites Sydney is currently successfully ranked 35 out of 204 star-rated hotels in the city of Sydney according to Tripadvisor
This achievement was achieved in less than 2 years since it opened in October 2018.
Skye Suites Sydney’s current position also exceeds Shangri La (63) and Swissotel Sydney (37) ranks on Tripadvisor.
“This is a very encouraging result for all of us, bearing in mind that the Skye Suites brand is still relatively new, but has won public trust in the city of Sydney,” said Crown Group CEO, Iwan Sunito
“Maybe what sets us apart from other hotels is the stay that we offer our guests”
“Starting with artistic exterior and interior design, swimming pool and lobby inspired by ice caves, stunning roof top and spacious rooms from 43 m2 to 80 m2 with SMEG appliances and Vittoria” added Iwan
“There are also ‘virtual concierge’ tablets in each suite for guests to access hotel services”
Skye Suites Sydney and Skye Suites Parramatta also made it to the 2020 Best Hotels version of the Luxury Hotels Guide with an average rating of 8.9 or Excellence category.
Both hotels have earned accolades at the HM Awards two years running, for Best Serviced Apartment Property and Best Tech Hotel.
The SKYE SUITES brand first launched in August 2017 with the opening of the stunning SKYE Suites Parramatta, part of a mixed-use residential, retail and hotel development, V by Crown Group.
The second SKYE Suites opened in October 2018 as part of the stunning Arc by Crown Group residential tower at 300 Kent St. This luxe and inviting enclave in the heart of the city was also designed by Koichi Takada Architects whose “ice cave” themed lobby and lap pool have become one of Sydney’s most Instagrammed spaces.
“Our hotel chain’s performance has also exceeded our previous expectations”
“Revenue and occupancy doubled in May vs April and is now above 60% on weekends in June”
“A result that should be appreciated considering that this pandemic has succeeded in destabilizing the current world economy,” explained Iwan Sunito
As travel restrictions in Australia begin to relax, SKYE Suites has seen its booking pick up as friends and extended family seek to reconnect and a trend is starting to emerge: “togetherness” is the new luxury.
“Togetherness is emerging as the biggest trend for 2020 and beyond,” he said. “People want to reconnect with those they have been separated from for the past few months and hotels are responding.
“Guests are calling to ask can they book two or three co-joining apartments so that they can enjoy a holiday with their kids and the grandparents in the one place, or so they can have friends who live in regional areas finally able to join them in the city for restaurant or gallery outings,” he said.
“Now that the lockdown has started to ease, we are finding that some guests are choosing to continue to work from our hotels rooms, for the convenience and flexibility. We think there will be new ways of working emerge from this situation.”
The third SKYE Suites opened above Green Square train station in April 2020, with 90 luxurious apartments which interiors designed by Juliet Ashworth’s CHADA. Located in a precinct designed by globally renowned Koichi Takada Architects with 18 retail and dining offerings including Butcher & The Farmer, Nam2 pho, Bashan noodles, KFC, McDonalds and Gong Cha bubble tea.
