Since announcing a progressive five-year growth strategy earlier this year, leading accommodation provider Oaks Hotels & Resorts, a division of Thai-based Minor Hotel Group, has added another new property to its growing network, today launching Oaks Woolloongabba in Brisbane.
The opening takes Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ Brisbane inventory to over 1,400 guest rooms, and over 6,000 in total across Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
Signaling the 10th Brisbane property under Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ management, the new-build Oaks Woolloongabba – developed by local Brisbane group Majella – delivers a contemporary and convenient accommodation base positioned on the fringe of the CBD in Brisbane’s inner south.
Costing an estimated $47 million to build, the 80-key serviced apartment tower features a collection of brand new, modern one and two bedroom apartments, defined by contemporary décor, generous living and dining areas, spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances, laundry facilities, study nooks and private balconies.
Oaks Woolloongabba will connect guests with Brisbane’s key business, health, education, entertainment and dining precincts, offering corporate travellers and holidaymakers a stylish new accommodation choice on the popular southern side of the Brisbane River.
Guests will enjoy a range of resort-style leisure facilities, including a sky-high 20 metre, three-lane lap pool surrounded by timber sun loungers, plus barbeque facilities, two spas and a steam room atop a rooftop terrace boasting city views.
Located in the heart of one of Brisbane’s most progressive southern suburbs, Oaks Woolloongabba is central to the Brisbane Cricket Ground, known as ‘The Gabba’, as well as the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Mater Hospitals, and Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
Also within easy reach is Brisbane’s premier cultural and lifestyle destination, South Bank – home to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), Queensland Museum and over 17 hectares of landscaped parklands and aquatic attractions.
A host of world-class eateries, market and boutique shopping, and premier entertainment venues are also located close by to the property.
Chief Operations Officer of Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Mr Mike Anderson, commented, “We are pleased to add Oaks Woolloongabba to our growing property network, which currently includes 53 central city hotels and idyllically located resorts across Australia and overseas. This opening not only marks a milestone 10th Brisbane property for Oaks Hotels & Resorts, but also further strengthens our position as a leading provider in the Australian accommodation sector.
“Our growth strategy will see us continue to evolve and seek out new management and acquisition opportunities in key CBD, resort and regional destinations, and the launch of Oaks Woolloongabba, in particular, reflects our commitment to the domestic market, in addition to exploring further opportunities overseas. We look forward to announcing additional properties to join our portfolio over the course of the year,” he said.
In celebration of its launch, Oaks Woolloongabba is offering an opening special from $119 per night including accommodation in a spacious, self-contained One Bedroom Apartment and free Wi-Fi.
Oaks Woolloongabba is located just five kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, a 20-minute drive from the Brisbane Domestic and International Airport and 10 minutes from the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
