Luxury vision unveiled for $300m Port Douglas hotel
Chiodo Corporation will develop the Port Douglas resort property and has chosen Accor Fairmont to operate the centrepiece hotel.
“We are excited to bring the extraordinary Fairmont brand to Australia and are confident that Fairmont Port Douglas will deliver a new level of luxury and sophistication to one of the country’s most glamourous resort towns,” Accor Pacifuc chief operating officer Simon McGrath said.
Fairmont Port Douglas will feature 253 rooms, several restaurants and bars, a day spa, a treetop walk and panoramic conference and wedding facilities, designed around resort-style pools.
“We are proud to deliver such a high quality project to the people of Port Douglas and believe the Fairmont brand will bring the right mix of local focus, sustainability and global expertise to the hotel,” developer Paul Chiodo said.
“Chiodo Corporation seeks to create spaces that are built around the environment and local culture and we believe that the Fairmont brand shares this ethos. Together, we will deliver a meaningful connection to the local community through this stunning hotel.”
