Cherry Blossom Wonderland IGLOO
(Click play on the video above to see the Igloo Suite up close)
I’ve featured Pier One before as a hidden Sydney gem that allows guests to book harbour front rooms for half a day. It’s a little treat my friends and I love to indulge in, once in a while for special occasions.
This time round, I was lucky enough to be invited to experience their Luxe Igloo Suite – a time-limited winter experience, curated in collaboration with Tara Milk Tea!
Pier One Sydney Harbour
Walsh Bay, 11 Hickson Rd, Sydney NSW 2000
The Igloo is situated on an outdoor balcony of one of their beautiful suites overlooking Sydney Harbour. The theme was “Cherry Blossom Wonderland Igloo” – so think white and cream tones with a floral and cozy winter vibe.
I got to the Igloo for a late afternoon session. The Igloo Suite is available for booking at 2.5 hour intervals, and can fit a maximum of 10 people. It’s also available for overnight stays if you’re looking for unique staycation ideas, so make sure to check their website for booking times & conditions!
The Igloo is great fun for anyone who loves taking photos, or anyone who played building a fort as a kid – so don’t worry if you’re not the “all-for-the-gram” type of person. It’s a fun, cozy space to share with friends and loved ones as you enjoy a set menu served by Pier One staff.
We were served the default dining package, and had the chance to try canned Curatif Cocktails, (which I gotta say, were pretty strong lol!) along with beers and wines. We also had a number of snacks, including oysters, grilled Paidine, chicken & wagyu skewers, salmon tartar and more! If you’re still peckish, you’re able to order additional items individually off their menu– they have a range of different dishes that would cater to your dietary requirements.
Personally, I think the Igloo suite is a fun experience you should consider if you have a special event you want to celebrate. The hire fee plus minimum spend makes this 2.5 hour experience a minimum of $600, which comes to $60 per person for a group of 10.
You will also have full access to the hotel suite, so there’s plenty of space to host 10 people – throw a movie on the TV or play some music as you your friends enjoy a catered experience.
The amount of food was sufficient and the level of service was excellent.
And although it was a rainy day the day I went – it was still really pretty once the sky got dark and the fairy lights from the Igloo shined bright.
