Why Self-Contained Suites are the Perfect Setting for Your Romantic Getaway

Planning a romantic getaway isn't like any other vacation. This is a special time just for you and the love of your life to share an incredible vacation experience. Whatever your idea of an incredible shared vacation may be.  Part of planning the perfect romantic getaway is the delicate balance between blissful alone time and a chance to explore new and exciting venues hand-in-hand.

This is why self-contained accommodations are such a wonderful addition to your romantic getaway plans. Rather than booking a single room in a busy hotel, you and your beloved could be canoodling in a beautiful vacation apartment all weekend long. With a self-contained suite, you can stay in for days, ordering everything delivered to your room, or you can set out on a Sydney adventure, exploring the bustling streets and secret beaches with your beloved.

Romantic Beaches Nearby

Sydney is also rife with romantic beaches to stroll, sunbathe, or find a secluded spot to enjoy the glittering water together. In fact, the vast amount of shoreline around the Harbour means that you can find all sorts of secret non-touristy spots in the heart of the CBD to enjoy a little beach side fun or just sit and watch the water, away from the crowds of kids and surfing. A few places within walking distance of the Zara are the Lady Jane Beach and the Lady Martins Beach, the Athol Beach, or the Waterside Parks. There are over a dozen different parks by the water so if one place is too crowded for you, just wander luxuriously on to the next.

You can also take advantage of the beautiful harbour by walking the Harbour  Bridge or booking a romantic starlit Harbour Cruise for one amazing dinner experience seeing the entire city lit up from the water.


Experience Luxury and Culture Touring Sydney Museums

If you're a lover of art, history, or beautiful aquatic life, then you're in luck. Within the very same walking distance are a variety of wonderful Sydney museums and venues that will fascinate your beloved and take your breath away. Nearby the Zara Tower are the Toula Museum of Australia, the Sydney Jewish Museum, The Australian Museum of Natural History & Anthropology, The Australian Museum of Magical arts (no kidding), the Sydney Living Museum, The Mint Historical Coin Factory, the Museum of Sydney, or even the Justice and Police Museum.

For a touch of class and culture, visit the beautiful Art Gallery of New South Whales or pick up tickets for an opera at the amazing seaside Sydney Opera House. And if you love beautiful fish, don't forget to stop by the Sydney City Aquarium, also only a short walk from your romantic suite. And if you fancy some incredible shopping, pop over to the World Square.


Cafes and Restaurants You'll Never Forget

Sydney is renowned for its variety and quality of cuisine. With restaurants crafting both authentic and fusion cuisine from around the world, you can find a little bit of everything. And here in the centre of the bustling CBD, there is a wonderful variety of romantic cafes or exciting getaway experiences to share with your special someone when you're ready to leave the room.

Within a few blocks of the Zara are restaurants of any type of cuisine you can imagine. For modern Australian faire, try the nel. right next door, a restaurant so hip that it doesn't need capital letters. If you're dying for some Thai, the ChaiThai and Spice I Am are both easy to reach and delicious to try. For Middle Eastern food, head over to NOMAD just down the road or Butter for more fried food than you can imagine.

If you're looking for a classic romantic experience, head over to Encasa to enjoy their authentic Spanish taverna. And if you're up late with your special someone and want somewhere amazing to eat, try Chin Chin and discover how Aussies like to spend their late nights.


The Romance of Sydney is Yours to Command

Of course, the best part about all of this is the power of choice. You and your romantic partner can take the city by storm, exploring its avenues, vistas, and venues; building unforgettable memories hand in hand. Or you can lock yourselves in your self-contained hotel suite, wrapped up in each other's arms without every having to leave the room. Or, as we all know, you can split the difference, staying in when you just can't get enough of staring into each other's eyes or going out when you're ready to take on the world (and the CBD) as an unstoppable couple on a mission to enjoy yourselves thoroughly.

No matter what your idea of the perfect romantic getaway might be, we have it here in Sydney and Zara Tower would be honoured to host you in one of our luxury self-contained suites so every choice is just you, your beloved, and the city before you.
