The ARIAs are Australian music’s night of nights, with the awards show seeing the country’s biggest acts gather in anticipation of who will win big.

But when the curtain comes down and the stars’ night of celebration comes to a close, celebs need somewhere absolutely luxe to rest their weary heads.

This is where The Star Sydney steps in, providing the likes of Dua Lipa, Halsey and Tones and I five-star suites both before and after the star-studded event.

Where the celebs will stay

However, the opulent set up does not come cheap and will set celebs back more than $5,500 for just a one night stay in the tower.

For this, stars and the elite alike can take advantage of suite-side beauty and relaxation treatments, bottles of Bollinger on arrival and a personal butler service.

Also on offer are luxurious spa baths overlooking Darling Harbour, where fans are expected to gather to catch a glimpse of their favourite musical acts.

Top-tier eating options

In terms of food, bespoke menus—crafted by chefs over the past month—has taken 35 staff more 560 hours to prepare.

Across the two evenings the celebs will indulge in over 3,600 oysters, 2,500 prawns, over 50kg lobster and 65kg crab.  

Inside each of the hotel’s five penthouses, those lucky enough to enjoy a stay can experience its wraparound windows provide breathtaking views of the Harbour Bridge.

The luxe master bedroom is dominated by rotating pieces of art, a spa bath and a double shower and a large wardrobe.

For the rest of us, the ARIAs can be watched from 5pm on Channel Nine or follow along with Yahoo Lifestyle’s coverage throughout the festivities.
