Sofitel Darling Harbour’s wellness development

The newly unveiled Sofitel Darling Harbour (SDH) has introduced ‘SoFit’, a world-class fitness centre featuring state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, and a view of Sydney.

Labelled as the first new-build five-star hotel that Sydney has seen this millennium, the hotel is located next door to the new International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour. It contains 590 rooms, three bars, a restaurant, 20m-long pool, modern gym, as well as nine flexible meeting spaces and 450-pax Ballroom.

Fitness centre, SoFit, is located on level 4 of the 35 floor hotel, adjacent to the 20m infinity pool. Within the centre, floor to ceiling windows allow guests to view all that Sydney has to offer as they work out.

With the goal to build a hotel that was eco-compatible, when it came to choosing equipment for the gym, Technogym’s ARTIS line was the obvious choice due to its sleek Italian design, interactive technology and outstanding eco-sustainability.

“Thanks to the ARTIS range, guests working out at SoFit play their part in making the gym and the hotel more sustainable,” says Claudio Bertozzi, managing director at Technogym Australia.

“The ARTIS Cardio range has the TÜV-certified lowest-emission available on the market, whilst all of the energy required to power the ARTIS Strength interface coming directly from the kinetic energy of the user. Human energy is rerouted into the network and renewed to feed the gym,” he continued.

The $500M Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour Hotel will play a major role in the on-going revitalisation of the vibrant Darling Harbour precinct, with over 40 new hotels scheduled to open over the next five years.

Hotel Developer Jerry Schwartz said, “Sydney is the most beautiful city in Australia. The hotel is in a prime position in Darling Harbour, an area of the city that is only going to see more and more tourist growth in the coming years. The spectacular view from SoFit really captures Darling Harbour as the thriving hub of all things leisure and tourism.”

“We chose Technogym because their equipment is reliable, well-designed and enjoyable to use. Their expertise was a great help from the very beginning, helping us to understand what Media Release For Immediate Release equipment would work best and where.”
