Celebrating the Start of A New Era For Iconic City Hotel

September 7, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Following an extensive, multi-million-dollar refurbishment program undertaken over the past 18 months, Sunshine Tower Hotel has begun an exciting new chapter in providing Cairns visitors with a quality guest experience.

After acquiring the hotel in 2015, owner, The Heytman Group immediately commenced upgrading the 61-room Sheridan Street property with the aim of restoring the building with contemporary furnishings and fittings and professional management.

The Sunshine Tower Hotel team celebrated the iconic hotel’s relaunch with a ribbon-cutting event performed last week by the Hon. Warren Entsch MP, Federal Member for Leichhardt, along with a gathering of civic leaders, tourism colleagues and friends.

Federal Member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch said it was terrific to see the Sunshine Tower Hotel back in operation in Cairns after its multi-million dollar refurbishment.

The Sunshine Tower Hotel has a long history in Cairns and it’s great to be able to maintain some of that heritage while updating the establishment to bring it in line with today’s modern standards,” Mr Entsch said.

“I’m especially pleased with the new jobs and demand for services it has created at the hotel, restaurant and beauty salon.

“It’s a real testament to the confidence the Heytman Group has in Cairns as a vibrant international tourist destination with potential for great growth in the future, and I welcome their investment in our city,” Mr Entsch said.

The Heytman Group’s David Heytman said that while the building was established 25 years ago it has been fully refreshed inside and out, spanning accommodation, commercial and public areas and the introduction of increased security to the hotel lobby.

“We are delighted with the results and the opportunity to return one of Cairns’ iconic hotels to its former glory.

“It feels great to be investing in existing infrastructure and making a small but meaningful difference in terms of employment and the local hospitality industry.

“As a team, we are very optimistic to be part of a vibrant regional city that is a world-class and wholly desirable, global destination,” said Mr Heytman.

Along with its 61 studio and one-bedroom apartments situated on seven levels with views of the rainforest mountains, city scape or Coral Sea, Sunshine Tower Hotel features a popular Chinese restaurant, The Dumpling Studio and a beauty salon.  Guest facilities include a pool, spa and sundeck with barbecue for outdoor enjoyment.
