“One of the major changes visitors will notice on arrival is the spectacular new lobby and reception area. We believe this significantly enhances the overall ambience and sense of arrival for guests checking into the hotel. We really are offering a new look, but the same sunset for those that are fans of our enviable beachfront location.”

In support of the hotel’s Planet 21 environmental charter, 100% recyclable and low environmental impact Biowood panelling features on selected walls throughout the apartments, while Mod Wood decking has been used in places underfoot. Both are textural and warm additions that add further depth to The Sebel’s finished walls and floors, adding to the overall aesthetics of the room with a relaxed sense of breezy beach living.

该酒店的改造由IDI事务所团队及其创意总监Penny del Castillo女士参与。在与酒店的所有者雅高度假俱乐部多次合作后，设计团队对项目要求非常了解。“在项目中，我们从塞贝尔酒店的周边环境中汲取灵感，采用了一系列能够反映曼丽城市海滩魅力的设计元素，例如色彩搭配及场地纹理。以此为基础，我们打造出异常精致且受欢迎的沿海空间，而且我们相信，它一定会超出酒店会员及游客的期待。当然，我们也保证大量的客房都可以俯瞰到曼丽海滩和大海壮丽的景色。”
In Design International and Cretive Director Penny del Castillo were engaged to transform the hotel. Having worked with the hotel owners Accor Vacation Club (AVC) on numerous occasions there is clarity and understanding on what is required. “In this instance, we have drawn inspiration from The Sebel’s immediate environment, using design elements, colours and textures that reflect Manly’s urban beach appeal. The result is a highly sophisticated, yet welcoming coastal finish that we trust will exceeds members and guests expectations. Of course, the stunning view across Manly Beach and the ocean from many of our guest room remains the same!”
The Sebel Sydney Manly Beach’s extensive fit-out incorporates new-look accommodation plus completely updated public spaces – including the hotel’s pool area – taking into careful consideration the specific needs of longer-stay leisure travellers.

酒店公寓中设置了小型厨房，提供了大量的储存空间。厨房中来自Ceasarstone Blanco Drift品牌的工作台可以为希望亲自烹饪的客人带来丰富的体验。改造后的浴室中配有现代化设施，例如新型洗手盆等，营造出更为奢华的氛围。
A fresh kitchenette design in apartments allows for copious amounts of storage, while pristine new Ceasarstone Blanco Drift bench tops enhance the experience for self-catering guests. Modified bathrooms now provide ultra-modern fittings and accessories – such as new vanities – delivering a more luxurious feel for holidaymakers.

The Sebel’s new design draws from the vibrancy of the local area in the texture and colour scheme of the apartments, and specially designed and custom made carpet. The mix of light wall colours and natural timber-look tiles adds to the light and spacious feel of the rooms. This is further complemented by modern furniture choices and neutral fabrics and materials (think woven basket storage, plus stylish bench seats and ottomans) which all add to the hotel’s fresh on trend appeal.
In addition to new paint, improved modern lighting, carpet and tile floor coverings, the refurbishment included new Samsung 55” televisions, as well as new bedding, furniture and soft furnishings, in guest rooms and apartments. The hotel has also introduced USB incorporated wall plugs and wireless Qi chargers for added convenience.
