With a vision to deliver an environmental hotel which still encapsulates the hallmarks of a luxury hotel, this five-star development will be the first Fairmont branded resort in Australia and will bring a whole new level of opulence to Far North Queensland.

Located in a stunning area on the edge of two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest – the resort will offer guests a selection of 253 luxury rooms, a choice of restaurants and bars, a day spa, a treetop walk, and panoramic conference and wedding facilities, all designed around resort-style pools.

Blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors will be an intimate lobby inspired by birds’ nests and verdant tropical gardens, and with butterfly nets sitting above the children’s swimming pool the resort will deliver a truly magical experience to guests.

ADP are delivering the electrical, dry fire and vertical transportation for the project, with one of the key considerations being the seamless guest experience from arrival to departure as well as the integration of the services to the resort wellness and guest amenity initiatives.

The development is striving to be recognised for its strong environmental credentials, embracing meaningful collaboration with the Kuku Yalanji community, the traditional owners of the land; and partnering with sustainable operators to explore the Great Barrier Reef and The Daintree Rainforest. The hotel will complement the Douglas Shire, a global winner of the Communities & Culture Award at the Sustainable Destinations Awards in March 2020 and is the first region to have achieved Ecotourism Australia’s Eco Destination Certification in 2019.
