Australia will welcome IHG’s boutique luxury brand Kimpton later this year following the conversion and repositioning Sydney’s Primus Hotel.
Kimpton Sydney will open this October with 172 design led rooms and suites, a rooftop swimming pool, conference and event spaces that are bathed in natural daylight, as well as a range of innovative culinary experiences that are built on Kimpton’s legacy of locally loved restaurants – including a lobby bar, rooftop restaurant and a café.
The brand’s lifestyle programming, part of Kimpton’s DNA, will be delivered through various complimentary experiences that can include: a morning kickstart coffee and tea, yoga lessons, bike rentals, and Kimpton’s Social Hour – where guests mingle with locals over complimentary wines in the evening.
“We are very mindful of how special the Kimpton brand is, and that’s why it’s been so important to us that we only bring it to market with the right owner and when we have the perfect property to bring it to life,” said Leanne Harwood, IHG’s managing director – Australasia, Japan & Pacific.
“The Primus Sydney property oozes Kimpton character, as soon as we saw it, we knew it had to wear the Kimpton badge, and we are so glad Pro-invest agrees and has put its full weight behind the brand.”
