WOULD YOU STAY IN AN ASTROLOGY HOTEL?
By: Laura Bolt
Usually the phrase “travel like the stars” means celebrity inspired trips, but not for The Ultimo. The Sydney based lodging bills itself as the world’s first astrology hotel, where guests have their every need taken care of based on their star sign. Working with astrologer Damian Rocks (whose Stars Like You website draws thousands of visitors a month), the hotel (located in a heritage building in Sydney’s Chinatown district) organizes rooms based on the zodiac, even asking guests to provide their time of birth upon arrival to create an accurate star chart. Personalized experience guides are also on hand to recommend local attractions (Leos should take in the Sydney Theater Company, while Capricorns might enjoy a picnic in Centennial Park). Personalized in person readings are also offered, as well as moon guides and zodiac decor throughout the hotel.
Of course, guests receive a daily horoscope along with their morning paper, which they can read in the Astro-tea lounge or Astrology library. Various star packages are available to further customize your stay. There’s no official word on which sign asks for the most late check outs, but we’re guessing it’s Scorpio.
