Chef Luke Mangan OAM, surely one of the busiest men in the Australian hospitality industry, will head the team for the new Kimpton Sydney's restaurant and bar outlets when the brand opens its first hotel in Australia.

Mangan will head up several food and beverage offerings at the new luxury boutique hotel, including Luke's Kitchen, which will be in the hotel lobby.

This in addition to his roles at glass brasserie at the Sydney Hilton, Salt Grill for P&O Cruises and with Eastern Oriental Express.

“What draws me to Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is its bespoke offering to guests coupled with heartfelt service," Mangan said.

"The location of Kimpton Sydney is superb with its blend of nightlife from neighbouring Chinatown and Darlinghurst and independent spirit from the nearby Surry Hills, all brought to life in this incredible building that's connected to Sydney's heritage.

“It felt like a perfect opportunity to create a range of innovative culinary experiences that are built on Kimpton's legacy of locally loved restaurants.”

The first opening under IHG Hotels & Resorts' Kimpton brand in Australia, Kimpton Sydney will be located at the site of the current Primus Hotel, after the purchase was completed by Pro-invest Group this week.

The building is a heritage-listed 1930s Art Deco revival of inter-war period architecture, previously housing the Sydney Water Board Offices.

Primus is now closed and the property is undergoing a refresh.

In addition to the main Luke's Kitchen restaurant, the hotel will feature an elegant 1930s-style cocktail bar, an intimate wine cellar offering bespoke tasting experiences, a rooftop bar with poolside flair and a café with coffee and house-baked pastries.

“Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is well loved globally for its award-winning and locally inspired culinary creativity," said Jan Smits, co-CEO and deputy chair of the Pro-invest Group

"We (See more) are delighted to welcome Luke, with his vision, expertise and experience to assist in bringing Kimpton Sydney to life.”

The hotel will open in late 2021.

It is often lazy journalism to describe a destination as being a “well-kept secret” but in the case of Hobart’s lovely Lenna Hotel it is true.

Tucked away in Battery Point - but just a short stroll to the bars and restaurants of Salamanca - family operated Lenna is hugely popular with regular guests.

It strikes just the right balance. The rooms are upbeat with modern facilities while the public areas have a country manor house vibe.

With several new hotels in Hobart - and more on the way - Lenna operates in a competitive environment. Its two- and three-bedroom penthouse apartments are extremely popular with well-heeled visitors.

I particularly like the staff; they are well-trained and helpful with natural charm.

There is old-school hospitality here: 24-hour reception, complimentary wifi and free on-site parking; something of a rarity in Hobart.

There is an on-site restaurant, Alexanders, room service the cosy Chandelier Lounge Bar, where you can sip on Lenna Gin and Battery Point Distillery Whisky, crafted in the adjacent micro distillery.

Rooms feature either mountain or harbour views and the CBD is just a pleasant stroll away.

The older section of the hotel has many historic nooks and crannies and there are some lovely gardens in which to chill out with a glass of Tasmanian wine.

It's Friday evening, so opening a bottle of red wine from Torre a Cona.
You can stay in the beautiful Tuscan accommodation, play tennis each day at Match Ball Firenze - Country Club and then dine in the evening at Torre a Cona in their new restaurant on site.
Torre a Cona, nestling in the Chianti Hills, offers the possibility to choose between different rural houses and apartments adjacent to the magnificent eighteenth-century villa and surrounded by the beautiful Tuscan landscape. New for 2021 are the typically Tuscan rooms which occupy the west wing of the eighteenth-century villa and annexe.
