Sydney's newest five-star boutique hotel, The Darling, has won an award at the Asia-Pacific International Hotel Awards.

The hotel picked up the Best New Hotel Construction and Design 2012 prize at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

Larry Mullin, CEO of operator Echo Entertainment Group, said the industry award is recognition of The Darling's distinctive design and a tribute to the hard work and dedication by a strong team of builders, designers and visionaries.

"We are very proud to receive this prestigious award and I would like to thank everyone involved, including our partners, Brookfield Mulitplex, Cox Richardson and Laurence Lee. We set out to create an iconic hotel at The Star that was sympathetic to its surroundings, while breaking the mould in terms of design and construction. The result we think is an innovative and aesthetically beautiful building that appeals to business and leisure travellers looking for something different to chain hotels."

The 171-room Darling features a distinctive inverted glass tower resting on a sandstone podium and features an infinity pool and a luxury 16 room spa. It is also home to Sokyo, a contemporary Japanese restaurant and bar.
