The northern tip of Queensland is set to land Australia’s first Fairmont hotel, with the opening of the Fairmont Port Douglas resort in 2023.

An hour’s drive from Cairns the resort sits between the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest and will serve as a popular hub for tourists looking to explore the clear waters and famous coral reefs or the unique wildlife of the Daintree.

The Fairmont Port Douglas is set to host 253 rooms and will embrace its natural surrounds through a birds’ nest-themed lobby, a treetop walk and a want for green spaces and natural light throughout.

“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,” says Simon McGrath, COO of Accor Pacific.

Elsewhere, the resort sees several restaurant and bars along with several resort-style pools and a decadent day spa – which will lean on natural, local ingredients.
