North Queensland is about to gain a new five-star resort hotel with the opening in November of Riley at Cairns.
Why you would choose the name of a defunct car manufacturer for your hotel, and why you would choose a design that looks like a giant glass vase remain a mystery to me, but Australia's newest five-star hotel brand, Crystalbrook Collection, is now taking bookings for Riley. Other Cairns properties, Bailey and Flynn, will open in 2019.
Located on Cairns' Esplanade, Riley has unveiled a collection of special opening offers including a $209 per night advance purchase with a complimentary upgrade and a pay two stay three deal.
Riley will be Cairns' first new five-star hotel in over 20 years and boasts in-room Apple iPads complete with healthy living apps, Staycast by Google Chromecast for video streaming, access to hundreds of complimentary movies and box sets and Nespresso machines with recyclable pods.
Crystalbrook Collection is a new Australian-based tourism and hospitality group. Its portfolio consists of Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, hotel and resort developments, a luxury lodge and a 90-foot motor yacht.
