For the second year in a row, Oceans Resort Hervey Bay has taken top international honours with the Ascend Hotel Collection Property of the Year award at the Choice Hotels Annual Convention in Las Vegas.  

After being awarded the Choice Hotels Asia-Pac Ascend Hotel Collection Franchisee of the Year last year, the property went up against other international Ascend Hotel collection properties in Canada and Sweden, before being judged best in class for 2017.

Ideally situated on the Fraser Coast in Queensland, the waterfront property invites guests to enjoy the rich diversity and natural beauty of Hervey Bay. Guests staying at the property will enjoy 75 self-contained suites, two heated lagoon pools, on-site day spa and fitness centre, dining and conference facilities.

Choice Hotels Asia-Pac CEO, Trent Fraser was in Las Vegas for the awards ceremony along with General Managers Chris and Olivia Taylor to accept the award.

Speaking on behalf of the win, Mr Fraser said “It’s an incredible achievement for Oceans Resort Hervey Bay to once again be recognised on an international stage. The honour not only shows the hard work and dedication of the entire resort staff, but also the superior guest service.”

“This is the third year in a row in which an Australian property has taken home an award at the Choice Hotels Annual Convention. We are extremely proud of all our franchisees and look forward to celebrating their continued successes and growth in the near future,” Mr Fraser added.

The Ascend Hotel Collection is Choice Hotels’ upscale offering for unique, boutique and historic properties. It offers property owners the flexibility to maintain their hotels’ identity, while looking to Choice Hotels for specialist distribution, sales, marketing and operational support.
