Part of Chiodo's $300m Port Douglas resort
Construction will commence early next year on Australia's first ever Accor Fairmont hotel after the operator was selected to manage Chiodo's $300 million Port Douglas resort.
Fairmont Port Douglas will offer 253 luxury rooms, several restaurants and bars, day spa, treetop walk, and panoramic conference and wedding facilities, all designed around resort-style pools.
Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer Simon McGrath said he was confident Fairmont Port Douglas would deliver a new level of luxury and sophistication to "one of the country’s most glamourous resort towns”.
“Accor continues to expand its luxury offerings in Australia and, as our first Fairmont, this is going to be a truly special resort, whose architecture mimics the rich biosphere of the Daintree Rainforest and, which is centred on well-being, nature and cultural immersion," he said.
