New 134-room property opening 1st November.
Hong-Kong-based Swiss-Belhotel has just announced it will open its first Australian property in Brisbane later this year.
The site at 218 Vulture Street South Brisbane will feature 134 rooms, with Swiss-Belhotel chairman Gavin Faull saying “we are very excited to be opening our first Swiss-Belhotel branded property in Australia in the booming Brisbane market.
“We were presented with this exciting opportunity in Brisbane two years ago…we were so impressed that we have taken a long term lease on the hotel and invested in the property,” he added.
As well as an ideal location near the Gabba, three large hospitals and the CBD, the property will boast a large corporate lounge, two banquet and meeting rooms, an indoor pool and gymasium and on-site parking.
The new addition boosts the Swiss-Belhotel portfolio to more than 135 properties in the Middle East, Europe, China, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Faull flagged further local development, with plans to have at least ten hotels managed by Swiss-Belhotel International in Australia within five years, and “at least forty within ten years”.
