According to developers Chiodo, the resort will offer guests a selection of 253 luxury rooms, with 136 basement car parking spaces, business centre, conference facilities, day spa, swimming pools, gym, restaurant, bars and cafe. It will nestle in a stunning location where the forest meets the sea, the new Accor Fairmont Port Douglas will be the first of its kind, in that it will be locally focused yet globally artistic, cultivating a celebration of the planet, sustainability and humanity”.
Chiodo Principal, Paul Chiodo said: “Our vision is to deliver an environmental hotel that still encapsulates the hallmarks of a luxury hotel and Accor clearly shares the same passion that we have at Chiodo Corporation for Port Douglas itself.
“We both share a love for Port Douglas and its community, and we will jointly push hard to bring Port Douglas the bling factor that it had 15 years ago, where world leaders go to play golf and Hollywood celebrities go for vacations.”
