The AU$150 million (US$107.8 million) Sofitel Adelaide has made its debut – the first new five-star internationally branded hotel in South Australia’s state capital for 30 years.

Taking inspiration from the Sofitel brand’s French roots, this highly anticipated luxury hotel comes with a host of inviting amenities, including the Garçon Bleu restaurant and Déjà Vu champagne bar.

Cultural links to Bordeaux

The long-awaited Sofitel Adelaide has opened its doors, bringing the total number of Accor properties across South Australia to 15, including 12 in the state capital alone.

A striking AU$150 milion (US$107.8 million) flagship hotel, it’s located in the heart of the city on Currie Street. Each Sofitel property exhibits cultural links with a city or region of France boasting similar qualities, and this particular scheme is associated with Bordeaux, based on their shared reputation for gastronomy, wine, history and art.

Sofitel Adelaide general manager Rachael Harman said: “We are truly excited to open Sofitel Adelaide, which not only marks Sofitel’s debut in South Australia, but also represents Adelaide’s first internationally recognised five-star address to be built in 30 years.

“Each Sofitel draws inspiration from local culture while celebrating innovation and imparting a French sense of hospitality, and Sofitel Adelaide will proudly continue this tradition. We aim to deliver a one-of-a-kind, luxurious hotel experience, but with a distinct Adelaide feel.”

Representing art de vivre

Sofitel Adelaide’s home to 251 luxurious guestrooms and suites, including the palatial presidential suite, with features including freestanding bathtubs and views of either the city or the Adelaide Hills. Guests staying in Luxury Club rooms and suites also have access to Club Millésime on level ten.

This accommodation is complemented by standout amenities like the Sofitel Fitness Centre, containing equipment with the same leather finishings as Ferrari supercars. Moreover, guests can dine in French restaurant Garçon Bleu on the ninth level, benefitting from an open kitchen, wine wall and up-lit seafood bar, as well as street-level champagne bar Déjà Vu, inspired by the sidewalk cafés of Paris.

The hotel is further distinguished by the inclusion of custom-designed interiors, including burgundy-coloured chandeliers and vintage-inspired wallpaper. And its indoor heated pool is lit naturally courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as three chandeliers.

Art plays an important role, meanwhile, with the work of local and international artists featured throughout Sofitel Adelaide. The art, furnishings and marble were personally selected by owner Daniel Palumbo and his family.
