Following a six month selection process, Toga Far East Hotels (TFE) is proud to announce that it has been the successful contender to build and manage a new Vibe Hotel complete with conference centre at the redeveloped Canberra Airport. 

The newly acquired property, which will occupy prime real estate at the entrance of Canberra Airport, will be developed in conjunction with Canberra Airport.

The anticipated date for the completion and opening of the new Vibe Hotel is currently earmarked for October 2015.

Situated just 150 metres from the entry to the new terminal, the 191 room property will be centred around a full height atrium featuring a large ground floor intermingle zone with reception, bar, restaurant and conferencing facilities.

CEO of TFE Hotels, Rachel Argaman, commented: “We are honoured to have been selected to operate the hotel in such a prominent position in the nation’s capital. The location will service travellers using the beautiful new airport, as well as the surrounding business parks and defence precincts.”

The contemporary property will offer sweeping views over Lake Burley Griffin to Parliament House and across the runway to the east.  The Vibe Hotel will house 12 suites, 5 x 1-bedroom apartments and 4 x 2-bedroom apartments and 170 guest rooms, all of which feature balconies.  Guests will also have access to 50 car spaces and a gym.  Conference facilities will include one large room, which can be split into two, five boardrooms and a pre-function space.

Toga Group Managing Director Allan Vidor said: “Since forming the joint venture with Far East Hospitality almost a year ago, Toga Group’s hospitality arm TFE Hotels has been actively pursuing growth opportunities in the accommodation sector.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Canberra Airport to deliver a brand new hotel – Vibe Hotel Canberra which will provide business and leisure travellers with convenient 4.5 star accommodation at the airport and just a stone’s throw from the CBD.

“The announcement of this iconic new Vibe hotel is testimony to Canberra Airport’s commitment to maintaining its position as Australia’s leading airport and its strong vision for the Canberra region.”

With over 150,000sqm of a-grade commercial office space in the business parks at Canberra airport, and over 40,000sqm of retail space, the precinct will benefit greatly from the new Vibe Hotel, which will predominantly cater to the corporate traveller market.
