Oaks rolls along with ex­pan­sion plans

Central and North Burnett Times - - EXPLORE -

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.
