The Langham offers the craziest $ 50,000 hotel package imaginable
The world famous luxury hotel The Langham London turns 156 this month. And while all of this is fine for Langham London, and inevitably larger-than-life celebrations, it means it all to most Australians. At least that was the case, until Langham Sydney and Langham Melbourne decided to team up and commemorate the occasion with the craziest accommodation package under $ 50,000 imaginable. Dubbed the ‘Tale of Two Cities’ package, the two luxury properties have deliberately exaggerated to present both Australian hotels and the city’s best experiences, tied to the reliable unifying theme of overindulgence.
The Langham Tale of Two Cities package obviously comes with a little caveat, at least currently. Melbourne is currently in the midst of a lockdown spurred by the continued spread of COVID-19. And if the luxury package reservation must take place between June 10 and June 20, it is valid for stays until December 23, 2021.
Another problem is that the full prepayment of the package, which is priced at exactly $ 47,118, is required when booking. So those who pay and will obviously bet on the fact that travel will be fluid between Sydney and Melbourne through the dates of their stay.

Now as to what the package includes. It’s a lot. Go beyond the two Langham properties to open up guests to everything from views of Sydney harbor, bridges and beaches to Melbourne bays, rivers and lanes.
Under $ 50,000 you will get the following
- 3 nights accommodation in the Chairman Suite at Langham Melbourne
- One city-to-city private jet flight (both ways)
- Three nights accommodation in the Observatory Suite at Langham Sydney
- Various inclusions and experiences in both cities
This last. The “various inclusions” will be designed to show the best of both cities. In Melbourne, it will begin with private transport from Docklands to the hotel in a private boat, with you on a cruise with Yarra Champagne. During the 3-night stay at the Melbourne hotel, guests will be pampered with everything from flowers and fresh fruit, two pairs of personalized pajamas, a bottle of pink Veuve Clicquot champagne, a daily breakfast in bed ( with more champagne), a caviar service at the Aria Bar & Lounge (with more champagne), a private dinner for two in the President’s suite and a few gifts to take away.
Outside of the hotel, these experiences will include a helicopter flight to the Great Ocean Road and lunch on the Bellarine Peninsula, dinner for two at Vue de Monde, a boat cruise for lunch taking place. ending with a picnic and a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Melbourne Theater Company.
Direction Sydney and you will be offered much the same at the CBD hotel, with some twists and turns. This bottle of Veuve de Melbourne will now be transformed into Laurent Perrier. You’ll get more flowers and fresh fruit, daily breakfasts in bed (yes, more champagne, a signature cocktail and tasting plate at The Observatory bar, afternoon tea for two in the suite Observatory and more gifts to take away.

Throughout the stay, off-site adventures will unfold through some of Sydney’s most sought-after experiences. This includes a seaplane flight to Pittwater for lunch at Jonah’s house, a climb of the Sydney Harbor Bridge for two, a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Hunter Valley ending with a champagne breakfast and a four-sighted tour of Sydney in one of the hotel’s vintages. pink taxis in mind (ending with a picnic).
Look, $ 47,000 is a lot of money to spend on six nights of pure indulgence. We understood. The Langham seems to have it too. They’re going to cut it down a bit with a few other offers like dog-friendly rooms for $ 280 a night. But this is only for accommodation. All that sweet champagne, bridge climbing and river cruise will not be included outside of The Langham package detailed above.
