World’s first astrology hotel opens in Sydney

Thursday, 16 February 2017 33

Sydney is a city of firsts – the first flat white, the birth-place of Weet-Bix and the first Instagram hotel, 1888 (now Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour).

The city can now lay claim to the world’s first astrology hotel, The Ultimo.

The Ultimo is part of Australian boutique hotel group 8Hotels, who own the likes of Park8 Hotel Sydney, Pensione Melbourne and Limes Hotel Brisbane.

Working in conjunction with famous astrologer Damien Rocks, The Ultimo has created a personalised hotel experience. A hotel stay here is tailored to each astrology sign. These include individual city guides, highlighting what to do, where to go and what to eat in Sydney, all based on star sign qualities.

Not surprisingly, Pisces are recommended to visit the Sydney Fish Markets to take part in a cooking class, while Aries should visit Sydney bakery institution, Black Star Pastry.

Rooms are furnished in whites and greys. The exposed brickwork lends itself to a warehouse vibe, fitting into the Ultimo locale.

Hotel perks include free WiFi, a super central location and some of the best views out to Chinatown. If you’re travelling with a furry friend, book one of the pet-friendly Courtyard rooms.

For the full experience, book the Off The Charts Package. The package comes with accommodation for two, a one hour astrology reading, moon calendar and slippers.
