Travel Daily - - News -

CRYSTALBROOK Col­lec­tion yes­ter­day un­veiled the first of three prop­er­ties it plans for Cairns, with the Ri­ley mak­ing its de­but at the north end of the city’s seafront Es­planade.

The re­sort is the first new fives­tar prop­erty to open in Cairns for more than 20 years and of­fers 311 rooms and suites around a 1,000m2 swimming la­goon with a man-made beach.

Crystalbrook Col­lec­tion CEO Mark Davie said the open­ing was a mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to fi­nally wel­come our first guests and to see ev­ery­body en­joy­ing the re­sort,” Davie said.

“I’m thrilled to see a lot of lo­cal faces as well, we will al­ways be grate­ful for the un­re­lent­ing sup­port the Cairns com­mu­nity has given us.”

The Ri­ley will of­fer three restau­rants and bars with ocean views, in­clud­ing the mod­ern Asian fu­sion Pa­per Crane.

A Mediter­ranean restau­rant and rooftop bar, Rocco, and a “raw and sim­ple” eatery called Green­fields will open next month.

The re­sort will also open its Eleme Day Spa and a 24-hour fit­ness cen­tre next month.

Other fea­tures in­clude event spa­ces for up to 400 peo­ple.
