As most of you already know I won the Fashion Chute at Randwick Races for the Autumn Carnival back in April this year and part of my prize was a very generous Star Casino Voucher. I have been waiting for a special occasion to use it and with my husband’s birthday (Mr Style Doctor) coming up on Thursday I thought last weekend would be the perfect time to use it. The anticipation certainly didn’t disappoint and we had the best stay-cation in Sydney that we’ve ever had!
We had lunch at Momofuku and the whole experience was absolutely incredible. The service was outstanding and we had someone talk through each of the 11 dishes that were beautifully presented to us. The food was amazing and it was a mix of Australian and Carribean style food because the head chef is from the Carribean. The seafood dishes were delicious and my favourite was the Whiting with ‘dog sauce’ which is called ‘dog sauce’ because it’s so good it would make anything taste good. Mr Style Doctor was also spoiled with an extra dessert for his birthday.
After lunch we checked into our room and we were blown away. The room was huge and it had a huge verandah so we sat outside and had a drink on the verandah and soaked up the afternoon sun. After a relaxing afternoon in our room we decided to head downstairs and try our luck in the casino. The casino was packed and it was buzzing with excitement. We had so much fun playing roulette, black jack and even trying a couple of new pokies but we walked away before we lost too much money.
We went back to our room and room service for dinner before calling it a night.
One of the best parts about staying at The Star is being able to be a tourist in your own city. We got up the next day and went for a walk through Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay, King Street Wharf, around Barrangaroo up to the Harbour Bridge and soaked up the winter sun and the sites of Sydney.
All good things must come to an end and we checked out yesterday before the influx of people coming into the casino for the big Mayweather vs MacGregor fight and if we didn’t have kids to collect we could have stayed and watched the fight in the sports bar.
We had an absolute ball at The Star and we will definitely be going back! I want to thank The Star for the incredible hospitality and the best staycation and a huge thank you to The ATC for an incredible prize.
