A Buffet of Experiences

The Bonza Bash Diamond NYE experience will quite simply be one of the most amazing and memorable experiences of your life. To accommodate the wide breadth of interests and tastes that our guests will have, your Diamond NYE Concierge will work with you to tailor your adventure to your particular desires. Whether you’ve been to Sydney before and wish to experience the more unusual side of the city, or wish to take in all the top attractions as only Bonza Bash knows how, your trip will be custom crafted just for you. Here below we present a sample itinerary to whet the appetite. Note that your Diamond NYE ticket will include all costs associated with this package of experiences, including private jet & luxury yacht charter, meals and wine lists, transfers, other transportation and any entry fees or participation costs.

Day Zero

  • Depart from your home city via commercial first class to Los Angeles, CA before transferring to your first class (or equivalent) overnight flight to Sydney, Australia.

Day One

  • Arrival into Sydney, Australia (around 7am) with expedited exit through Australian immigration and customs
  • Luxury private vehicle transportation for the ~25 minute drive from the airport to the Sheraton on the Park, Sydney’s most exclusive “hotel to the stars”
  • Arrival at the Sheraton on the Park, and greeted by Club Lounge Manager & personal butler prior to being escorted directly to your Park View Suite where light refreshments will await
  • After freshening up, your private vehicle and Diamond NYE Conceirge will escort you on private tour of Sydney with stops as desired for photo opportunities. This will be an “orientation” tour but will conclude with a private back of house tour of the internationally famous Sydney Opera House, complete with a private guide from the Opera House senior staff
  • Your driver will return you to the Sheraton on the Park, where you’ll either be able to prepare for dinner, or take an early night in. The evening’s entertainment will be your choice of a welcome dinner with your Bonza Bash hosts, or if you prefer, a private dining experience in your suite with a meal personally prepared by the hotel chef.

Day Two

  • Start the day with a private exercise and yoga session with your Diamond NYE Concierge. Take in the beauty of Sydney’s Hyde Park with your personal yoga instructor as you join the city in waking up to a glorious summer’s morning
  • Enjoy a hearty breakfast either in your suite or in the exclusive Club Lounge atop the Sheraton on the Park hotel
  • Your private driver and Diamond NYE Concierge will escort you to the base of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at which time you’ll take the infamous “BridgeClimb” tour – walking up to the very top of the bridge and taking in the most breathtaking view of this glorious harbour city
  • Not so keen on heights? Perhaps a surfing lesson at the world famous “Bondi Beach” with a private instruction team of two Bondi lifesavers – learn the art of board-riding Aussie-style, and enjoy a delicious beach-front luncheon immediately afterwards
  • Prefer to keep dry? How about a sea-plane day trip to the Hunter Valley wine region? Your Diamond NYE Concierge will escort you to the seaplane port, you’ll fly to New South Wales’ premiere wine region, the Hunter Valley, and you’ll enjoy a spectacular spread of wine, food and delightful company in this gem just outside of Australia’s biggest city.
  • Upon your return from any of these (or other) experiences, we’ll invite you to enjoy a spa treatment to help relax your way into the Australian lifestyle, or provide you with a personal shopping guide to lead you through Sydney’s finest (or hardest to find) boutiques
  • Take a few hours in your suite to unwind from an exhilarating day before you join your Bonza Bash hosts for a four course a la carte dining experience at one of Sydney’s world-class five star restaurants (restaurant selection will be made in consultation with guest tastes), while experiencing a virtual tour through the wine regions of the country as we enjoy some of the best selections from across the Australian wine industry
  • After dinner your personal driver will deliver you to Sydney’s hottest new evening venue, “The Ivy” – an eclectic collection of restaurants, bars and divine alcoves. Settle into our private bungalow next to the rooftop pool & bar as we mingle with your fellow Diamond NYE guests, your Bonza Bash hosts, and Sydney’s see and be-seen A-listers.

Day Three

  • Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in your room, or take in the views of Sydney from atop the Club Lounge at the Sheraton on the Park
  • Join your Diamond NYE Concierge and your personal driver as you depart the hotel and travel to the famed Blue Mountains just outside Sydney. Take in the breathtaking views of Australia’s “bush country” and enjoy a gourmet lunch high in the mountains. In the afternoon, we’ll visit Featherdale Park where you’ll have an opportunity to get up and close with kangaroos, koalas and other Australian wildlife
  • Your luxury car driver will deliver you back to the hotel in Sydney by 4:30pm, allowing a few hours of downtime to freshen up prior to dinner
  • Join your Bonza Bash hosts as we dine tonight at Sydney’s finest culinary experience, “Quay” – one of the top 30 restaurants in the world. This will be a sumptous four course dinner complete with wine pairings and after dinner drinks. At the conclusion of dinner, you may elect to return to the hotel to prepare for the big day ahead, visit Sydney’s international-class casino or take in cocktails at the highest bar right on Sydney Harbour. Your Bonza Bash hosts will be delighted to help you in your selection, or even host you as they take you to Sydney’s evening gems.

Day Four

  • Enjoy your breakfast either in the privacy of your suite or along with the expansive views offered by the Club Lounge atop your hotel
  • The morning is yours to enjoy a leisurely shopping trip, spa treatment or perhaps take in another activity you weren’t able to do earlier in the trip
  • At lunchtime your personal driver will escort you to Bondi Beach where you’ll have lunch at the famous “Icebergs” restaurant, overlooking the beach and well-known swim club to Olympic stars. Enjoy a selection of summer wines and some of the most outstanding lunch dishes Sydney has to offer – that’s if you can take time away from the spectacular view!
  • After lunch, your driver will return you directly to the Sheraton on the Park hotel where you’ll be invited to freshen up and prepare for the New Year’s Eve festivities ahead. A bottle of fine champagne will be chilled for your arrival and will be poured by your personal butler as he assists you with departure preparations
  • At 4:30pm we’ll depart the hotel by private limousine to Jones Bay Wharf where the Bonza Bash Diamond New Year’s Eve Party will truly commence. You’ll once again meet the other guests enjoying the experience, along with a hand-selected group of Sydney-only guests who will join us for the evening’s festivities
  • Between 5pm & 6pm you’ll enjoy cocktails and canapes atop Jones Bay Wharf taking in views of the city of Sydney, Sydney Harbour and the growing flotilla of watercraft. At 6pm our private yacht for the evening – Sydney’s largest private yacht in fact, the 110ft “Flying Fish” – will arrive at the Wharf and the crew will prepare the vessel for boarding
  • At 6:30pm we’ll board the Flying Fish and depart Jones Bay Wharf for Sydney Harbour proper – and in doing so, begin our exclusive tour of one of the world’s most beautiful natural harbours amongst the biggest New Year’s Eve celebration in the world. Dinner will be served aboard the yacht, as will premium beverages, cocktails and of course champagne all night. Take in the atmosphere from a private corner of the yacht, or join your Bonza Bash hosts on the helicopter deck (sans aircraft!) for a panoramic view of one of the most exhilarating New Year’s celebrations anywhere.
  • Sydney celebrates with fireworks shows at both 9pm and midnight. We will have prime positioning for both fireworks shows, and traffic permitting, will cruise the harbour in between
  • At the conclusion of the fireworks, the Flying Fish will cruise immediately to Rose Bay, where your private vehicle will await to escort you immediately to the airport. Your bags have already been positioned at the airport, and upon arrival you’ll board our specially chartered private jet for the journey back to the United States. Wheels up no later than 1:30am – and you can settle in for a comfortable flight back across the Pacific Ocean.

Day Four (US)

  • Your flight attendant will awaken you as we approach Hawaii, with a selection of breakfast offerings and juices. Your aircraft will touch down in Honolulu to refuel, and to allow guests to complete US Customs requirements. This will be a very quick stop – and should last 20-30 minutes prior to wheels up as you jet your way towards Seattle, Washington
  • Upon arrival at Seattle’s Boeing Field just outside the city center, a fleet of towncars will escort guests and their luggage directly to your hotel whereupon you’ll have a short window to freshen up and change into your black tie regalia prior to your “second New Year’s Eve” party for the night
  • We’ll aim to arrive at the Bonza Bash New Year’s Eve event in Seattle a little before 11pm, where you’ll be escorted to your private bungalow in the VIP section of the venue. You will be treated to private table service, with dedicated wait staff, heavy appetizers and exclusive VIP gift. To help start your second midnight countdown, your table will have your own bottle of chilled ultra-premium champagne awaiting your arrival
  • You will count down your US midnight New Year at Seattle’s most exclusive black tie NYE gala ball, and as your second celebration for the evening winds down, you’ll scarcely believe you chased the sun around the planet to celebrate in a fashion very, very few individuals will ever be able to do
  • Towncars will escort you back to your hotel suite for a well deserved night’s sleep.

Day Five

  • Bonza Bash invites you to enjoy a complimentary breakfast at the hotel, along with a spa treatment to ensure you return home fully relaxed and ready to tell the world about your amazing experience
  • Seattle guests will have their private towncar deliver them home, while out-of-state guests will travel by towncar to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for your commercial first class flight back home
  • Sit back, relax, and take a moment to appreciate what you’ve just accomplished – you’ve just created a memory of a lifetime.

Note that all activities prior to New Year’s Eve in Sydney are selectable, and your Diamond NYE Concierge will work with you to tailor an experience that will be truly unlike anything you’ve ever had before. Let your mind wander, and allow our Concierge team to turn your dreams into reality!
