The new look resort designed by architecture firm, Hunt Design, pays homeage to the beauty of the region and the heritage of the classic Queenslander. Public spaces such as
the Atrium have been created to be welcoming with the outdoors sprawling in, through colonial shutters, a vibrant green wall and an alfresco area looking into the Living Reef.
