The Park Hyatt Sydney re-opened in March 2012 following an AU$65 million renovation. That kind of investment across a property with only 155 rooms means the hotel has the finest rooms in the city. We stayed in one of the hotel’s eleven suites.
Air China’s fleet of twenty 777-300ER aircraft offer its flagship ‘Forbidden Pavilion’ first class product. These aircraft are predominantly used for long-haul routes to Europe, North America and also seasonally to Sydney. We took flight CA173 from Beijing to Sydney on the People’s Republic of China’s third largest airline.
At Beijing-Capital Airport (PEK), Air China’s international operations run from Terminal 3E, where it operates a pair of business and first class lounges. Most airlines seem to use these lounges (there are limited options in Beijing), although on this occasion we spent a few hours here before our flight to Sydney with Air China.
We were intrigued by reports yesterday that Air New Zealand’s chief executive was calling Qantas “Air Sydney”.

As one of its four daily services between Sydney and Singapore, Singapore Airlines operate its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft between Australia’s largest city and the Lion City. We flew SQ232 in Suites class for this 8-hour journey.
Singapore Airlines’ (SQ) Suites Class and First Class are among our most preferred ways to get around the world. We find that the Singapore Airlines’ SilverKris Lounge (First Class) in Sydney makes for a very pleasant start to a journey out of Australia’s largest city on Singapore Airlines.
The Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is located in Kamala Bay, on a stretch of road sometimes called ‘Millionaires Mile’. The Hyatt opened with a soft launch in December 2013, before it formally opened in January 2014. Prior to the 2004 Tsunami, this property was formerly known as the Kamala Bay Terrace Hotel. It is Hyatt’s third property in Thailand behind the Grand Hyatt Erawan in Bangkok and the Hyatt Regency in Hua Hin.
