Let the stars be your guide at the 'world’s first astrology hotel' in Australia

Want to let the stars guide your next vacation? Consider a stay at the ‘world’s first astrology hotel’ in Sydney, Australia.

The Ultimo Hotel is curated by Damian Rocks, a professional astrologer, teacher and writer, who will help Leos, Libras and more find their perfect holiday in the city.

The boutique hotel provides guides that help travellers of every star sign find the best places for them to visit. Are you a Pisces? Head to Flying Fish, an Asian-inspired seafood restaurant with water views, or Lentil As Anything, a pay-what-you-feel vegetarian restaurant filled with local art. When it comes to experiences, you are advised to hire a kayak at head to the sea, or take some time alone and head to Taronga Zoo.

Sagittarius guests are advised to eat a wood-fired pizza at Da Orazio in Bondi, or take in the open rooftop at The Glenmore Hotel. To get out and see the city, a Sagittarius should head to the Art Gallery of NSW, take a walk from Spit to Manly, or head for a swim at the North Sydney Olympic Pool.

The hotel is located in Chinatown in a heritage building, and goes beyond astrology-based tour guides, with daily horoscopes, tea to match your star sign, and a star theme throughout. Guests can even get personalised astrology readings while they stay. And if you don’t care the least for horoscopes, the hotel has other offerings that might entice travellers, such as the fact that it’s also pet friendly.
