Shangri’la’s Cairns property gets huge make-over

Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina, Cairns, has completed renovations on 184 guestrooms that began in March 2018.

The guestroom transformation process took place in two phases and cost AUD13 million (approximately USD10 million).

The renovations of the guestrooms have delivered a standard that surmounts every expectation and contributes to securing Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina Cairns’ current position as the market leader.

Tasked with the nine-month-long project was Sydney-based design firm Stack Studios, who have been involved with other transformation projects for both Sydney and Cairns properties.

As part of the new look, the guestrooms focus on modern simplicity with nautical accents to embrace the hotel’s stunning surroundings on Marlin Marina and views of the azure sky and sea.

Each room offers 32.5 sqm / 350 sqf of luxury.
