I love it when hotel groups refer to their property renovations in phases – it sounds like they’re undertaking a military operation.
And, in a way, they kind of are, albeit without the military bit. The careful planning and precision execution are all there, but they’re just more concerned with what drapes will match the carpet than anything else.
The latest hotel to complete phase one is the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas.
First opened in 1987, the hotel has undertaken a $40 million refurbishment which will see all 294 guest rooms given a makeover and also continue through the resort’s public spaces, giving the whole resort a fresh look.
So far 146 of the 294 have been refurbished. The remaining guest rooms are due to be complete by June this year. Making the most of its tropical location, the refurb will also see the introduction of new Lagoon Edge Rooms and Lagoon Edge Studio Suites that will offer direct access to the lagoon pool.
In addition to the stylish new guest rooms, the lobby will also receive the extreme makeover treatment. A new café with complete the lobby renaissance. There will also be a new buffet experience called Feast Restaurant, which will overlook the resort’s vast swimming lagoons.
Located on Four Mile Beach, Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas is surrounded by 147 acres of lush tropical gardens and includes two hectares of swimmable lagoon pools and an 18-hole golf course.
