New five-star ho­tel for Cairns

Paradise - - In Paradise Contents -

at Cairns air­port for a week­end break of fab­u­lous food and re­lax­ing pool time, many peo­ple make a bee­line straight for the taxi rank, keen to get to Port Dou­glas or Palm Cove. But, now, the com­mute to a plush ho­tel room just got a lot shorter.

“First and fore­most we want to rein­vent hos­pi­tal­ity,” ex­plains Joel Gor­don, area gen­eral man­ager of Ri­ley, Cairns’ first new five-star ho­tel open­ing in over 20 years.

Ri­ley is one of three ho­tels that hos­pi­tal­ity group Crys­tal­brook Col­lec­tion will be open­ing in Cairns in the next three years.

“We want to keep peo­ple in Cairns, and that starts the minute you ar­rive at Ri­ley. You will be greeted by one of our ‘ex­pe­ri­ence cu­ra­tors’ with an iPad rather than by a re­cep­tion­ist be­hind a desk. We want to per­son­ally wel­come guests to the ho­tel – not just check them in.”
