“Part of this is ensuring we have world-class facilities, resorts and hotels that match the best other global destinations like Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai offer,” Mr Crinis told The Daily Telegraph.

“One key sector of the market that is evolving like never before is the luxury end.”

He said for Sydney to maintain its competitive advantage, it had to be at the forefront of innovation.

Sydney attracted 8.6 million overnight visitors in the 12 months to June 30, 2019, with visitor nights increasing by 8.7 per cent, according to a Deloitte Access Economics report last month.

Crown Sydney Hotel Resort, which plans to open in February, will be the city’s first six-star resort and second-tallest building.

It will offer luxury residences, signature restaurants, bars, luxury retail outlets, pool and spa among other services to meet this demand for luxury tourism.
