For those who want the very best that money can buy, Australia has some top-quality luxury accommodation. Luxury hotels are generally found in the capital cities and popular tourist areas such as far north Queensland , central Australia , and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
Luxury hotels have high-quality décor and furnishings, and provide first-class services to their guests. Linen is generally changed daily and rooms are spacious. There are also suites on offer. Suites at the top end of the range can include master bedroom, walk-in closet, large, well-equipped bathroom, sitting room and separate dining room.
Five star luxury also means fine dining, with most luxury hotels having a restaurant or bistro on the premises. Of course, meals can also be delivered to guests' rooms with room service available 24 hours a day, as are valet and concierge services. Other facilities on offer might include gym, pool, spa, or sauna.
Companies that offer luxury hotel accommodation in Australia include Hilton, Hyatt, Intercontinental, Marriott, Sebel and Sofitel.
The cost of rooms at five star hotels varies greatly. Many have rooms available for $200 or less per night. The upper price limit can be anything up to several thousand dollars for a suite. However, between about $250 and $700 per night is more the norm.
