Far North Queensland has a new Grande Dame… Introducing Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore, in combination with Nu Nu’s

Vievers and Triton Holdings Limited is proud to announce its purchase of the property formally known as Angsana Resort & Spa in Palm Cove from global hoteliers, the Banyan Tree.

After an extensive $1m refurbishment, Vievers & Triton Holdings has spent the past 12 months recruiting the team that will transform the property, returning it to the pinnacle of Australia’s boutique resorts.

At the helm is the multi award-winning Lancemore Group, seeing its expansion into the Queensland market. The Lancemore Group commenced management of the hotel and spa in February and has rebranded the property Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore. UHR 2 Article-Banners-250-x-250-pixels

Locally loved and critically acclaimed Nu Nu’s Restaurant will now be located within the hotel, boasting a 169-seat restaurant and direct beachfront access. Currently in the final stages of a significant refurbishment, the restaurant will be open for business from the end of the month.

Chief Executive Officer of The Lancemore Group, Julian Clark, is delighted about the new management agreement.

“This is an exciting development for the owners and the Lancemore Group. Both the hotel and spa have been multi-award winners in the past and with the refurbishment and new team, we are committed to restoring this property to the apex of Australian boutique resorts.”

Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore cements The Lancemore Group as Australia’s leading boutique hotel and spa operator. Alamanda joins the group’s stable of award-winning properties in Victoria including; Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park, Lindenderry at Red Hill, Lindenwarrah at Milawa and Lancemore Hill at Macedon Ranges.

Mr. Clark said the Lancemore Group’s move into Far North Queensland was a considered one, “we are very selective about what hotels we embrace in our portfolio and which destinations we enter.

“Far North Queensland has been in Lancemore’s sights for the past 18 months as it’s really getting its mojo back after a number of tough years.  There is optimism in the air and we are thrilled to be a part of the region’s anticipated growth in the coming decade,” said Mr Clark.

Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore is the only beachfront resort in Palm Cove, with merely palms and sand standing between the resort’s suites and the ocean. Alamanda also houses one of Australia’s premier day spas, The Alamanda Spa, featuring eight treatment rooms that front the ocean, three of which are open air with their own plunge pools.

Equally as exciting as the hotel and spa management changes is the coup Vievers & Triton had in luring multi-award winning Nu Nu’s Restaurant, headed up by Nick Holloway (ex-Head Chef Pearl Melbourne).

“I have fantasised about having a restaurant there and now it’s come true.  We’ll be going from a 69-seat restaurant to a 169-seat restaurant with the only absolute beachfront in Palm Cove. After ten years it was time to move.  We’ll be open seven days a week and serving breakfasts, lunches and dinners,” said Mr Holloway.

Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore is the complete destination hotel, with 69 extra-large luxury apartments (room size starting at 85sqm), a multi-award winning day spa, three pools, the critically acclaimed Nu Nu’s Restaurant and the only wedding chapel on the beach, in Far North Queensland.

Alamanda Palm Cove by Lancemore is just a 25-minute drive from Cairns International Airport, in the heart of Palm Cove.
