New five-star hotel for Cairns
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.”
