If you’re going on a hot date, you could do worse than be in Sydney. There are few places in the world so poised to knock the socks off your paramour and leave stars in their eyes. Whether you’re looking for breathtaking night views, pristine beaches or a beguiling atmosphere that’s supercharged yet laid back, Sydney has it all.
If you and your date know how to enjoy the finer things in life, you’ll be spoilt for choice in a city where luxurious dining and entertainment options abound. Here are some of Sydney’s most exciting choices for a luxury date night that’s sure to take your relationship to the next level.
Private Luxury Sydney Harbour Cruise
There are few sights more astounding than the view of Sydney Harbour by night, and this never gets old, even for born and bred Sydneysiders. And there are few people who haven’t at least seen pictures of Sydney’s inimitable Harbour, with the unforgettable Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Take the romantic dinner up a notch by indulging in a luxurious 4 hour private sunset cruise that includes a sumptuous three-course meal on board. Even if your date has been to every single romantic restaurant by the Harbour, this is one experience that is guaranteed to impress.
Balla – by Steven Manfredi
Your date deserves only the best, and Balla by Steven Manfredi is indeed one of Sydney’s best restaurants, serving up mouthwatering artisanal Italian cuisine, all the while looking chicer than a Milanese runway.
As if that’s not enough, enjoy a nightcap at Balla Aperitivi Bar, where you and your date can slurp on shucked oysters while gazing out at a mind-blowing night view.
The restaurant is located within the Star Entertainment Complex, which is also home to The Darling, a 5 star luxury hotel that’s achieved fame for its plush rooms and tech savvy. Whether you’d like to spend the evening shopping at the most stylish boutiques in the land or receiving a sensuous massage at The Spa at The Darling, your evening will be fabulous.
Twilight Helicopter Flight
If you’d like to pull out all the stops and be swept off your feet, a twilight helicopter flight is the experience to end all experiences. Even if you can’t pull your jaw up off the floor long enough to sip your champagne, this is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget.
And just so your evening doesn’t end quite so soon, afterwards you will be escorted to one of Sydney’s most impressive restaurants and wined and dined amidst yet more breathtaking views.
Sydney offers such scope for luxury that it can be a challenge trying to choose between the myriad available options. There’s world famous scenery that’s simply sensational and then there are incredible, dreamlike, unforgettable ways to experience it.
