Your own karaoke lounge? Tick. Working disco ball? Check. Virtual-reality gaming room? Done. The Star Sydney’s new studios have to be seen to be believed.

The Star Sydney has embraced the idea of “experiential stay” with its three new spaces to “stay and play”. Step into sumptuous retro wonderland with the 70s Glam Studio, the sci-fi-chic world of the Cyberpunk Studio, or the passionate Dark Romance Studio.

Tasteful? I’ll let you be the judge of that. Fun? More than likely.

The 70s Glam Studio bring the golden age of disco to life in a boogie wonderland of neon lights.

The retro playground stakes its claim with a neon lips and cherry light pouting over a scarlet circular sofa, karaoke lounge area, gold-walled bar and a black-and-gold velvet daybed — all with a disco ball sparkling above.

In the bedroom are floor-to-ceiling draped gold chains, alongside an oversized bathroom with a circular bath and black-and-gold tiles.

The Cyberpunk Studio is a gamer's heaven with a fully equipped virtual-reality chamber and Xbox gaming set-up with a wall of four 65-inch TV consoles.

There’s also a full wet bar, spacious corner chill-out zone and mood lighting. 

The Dark Romance Studio is “sultry, sexy and gorgeous”, with mood lighting, ruby panelled walls, a working fireplace, a completely private balcony, king-sized four-poster bed and a bathroom with an oversized circular bath.

The registered guest of the 70s Glam Studio and Cyberpunk Studio may have up to 25 invited visitors. Only two guests (one being registered) may stay in the rooms overnight.

Room rates are from $500 per night for the Dark Romance Suite and $1500 per night for the 70s Glam Studio or Cyberpunk Studio.
