Tropical Queensland’s resort Cairns is to see the arrival of Australia’s second Pullman-branded hotel as the Reef Casino complex becomes the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino.
The repositioning of the hotel comes after a major upgrade of its business and especially its meetings facilities.
Situated in the heart of the city, overlooking Trinity Bay, the hotel features 128 rooms and suites with Jacuzzi-style spa baths and private garden balconies.
The complex offers the Reef Casino and Cairns Rainforest Dome, which provides visitors with the opportunity of seeing Australia’s wildlife in a picturesque setting. There is a variety of restaurant options, including the award-winning restaurant Tamarind, which offers Thai fusion cuisine in a stylish setting.
The hotel’s business focus is complemented with a dedicated conference floor refurbished in 2007, and offering a range of pre- and post-event venues and six different venue spaces to host groups up to 1,000 people. In addition, conference clients have access to two uniquely themed venues, a large exhibition area and access to the hotel’s own cabaret nightclub.
Accor vice-president Australia, Simon McGrath said: “The Pullman brand is dynamic with a focus on providing services to the corporate and meetings sectors, as well as leisure travellers.”
