Catamaran Overnight Stays

Welcome aboard your hotel room for the evening, from Sydney to anywhere in Australia.

Sydney has some gorgeous hotel rooms gazing out over the harbour - but none of them can beat sleeping on Sydney Harbour! No hotel room on land could ever compare to being rocked gently to sleep by the waters of the one of the world's most famous harbours or world class Barrier Reefs islands.

When the ferries stop for the night, the last of the seaplanes soar in to land before sunset, you are left to enjoy the pleasures and comfort of Alila entirely by yourself. The serenity of Sydney’s harbour feels like it’s yours alone. With the glittering lights of Sydney’s skyscrapers providing a distant backdrop back on shore, you can enjoy the constantly changing views of Rose Bay in Sydney's affluent eastern suburbs, and feel the silence slowly descend as night falls.

Staying overnight on Alila gives you the ultimate escape from everyday life, even here in the very heart of Sydney.

Your 'hotel room afloat' is the best of both worlds: it is luxuriously appointed, with 2 Queen bedrooms with ensuites and 1 Double bedroom, all fitted with soft, quality bed linens and pillows.

Downstairs, there are rooms to enjoy a hot shower, and for the kids to bed down. Altogether, Alila can comfortably sleep up to 5 people. Upstairs, you have multiple places to lounge in the sun, as well as a hammock, a BBQ and a large Esky for keeping your food (and perhaps a bottle of champagne) nice and cool.


How it works in Sydney

Our captain will come and pick you up from any wharf in the main Sydney area. Then it’s time to settle in, pour a glass of wine and let Tim take you on a two-hour tour of Sydney Harbour in luxury and comfort, to see whatever you'd like to see. It's a great chance to fit in some sightseeing if you are visiting from out of town – enjoy seeing the Sydney Opera House up close from the water, or even sail right underneath the famous (and enormous) Sydney Harbour Bridge!

When you reach your mooring in beautiful Rose Bay, Tim will secure the catamaran, ensure you are comfortable and all set for the evening, and bid you goodbye! You are left to enjoy the luxury catamaran Alila on an entirely exclusive basis, until Tim returns the next morning to take you back to reality.
