Oaks rolls along with expansion plans
THE revival of the Oaks Hotel and Resort’s brand under their new parent company, the Minor Hotel Group, is continuing to gain momentum.
While other accommodation providers have been cautious in their expansion plans Oaks has rolled forward and according to the group’s power brokers there are no plans to put the brakes on.
The CEO of Minor Hotel Group, Dillip Rajakarier, revealed at the opening of their latest $45 million Oaks Grand Resort in Gladstone last week that they were continuing to look for more expansion opportunities.
He also revealed that his company’s belief in the Oaks model had prompted them to start opening similar style apartment and resort blocks around the world under the Oaks name.
The latest 144-room Oaks Gladstone reveals the future for Oaks as they push for a lift in quality and services.
Oaks Gladstone has a 4½-star rating and is linked via skywalk to two of Gladstone’s premier eateries – Ribs and Rumps and The Coffee Club, and licensed venue, The Grand Hotel. The positivity of Oaks was clearly on show at their five star launch for their new Gladstone project with guests flown in from Thailand and around Australia. The powerful Minor Hotel Group’s takeover of Oaks less than three years ago has become a great hotel business success story.
