Accor Fairmont to bring back ‘the bling factor’ to Port Douglas

Port Douglas will be home to Australia’s first Accor Fairmont as part of a $300 million luxury resort by property developer Chiodo.

The new Accor Fairmont Port Douglas will be the newest hotel in Port Douglas for 20 years and will offer guests a selection of 253 luxury rooms, with a business centre, conference facilities, day spa, swimming pools, gym, restaurant, bars and cafe.

“Our vision is to deliver an environmental hotel that still encapsulates the hallmarks of a luxury hotel and Accor clearly shares the same passion that we have at Chiodo Corporation for Port Douglas itself,” said Chiodo Principal Paul Chiodo.

“We both share a love for Port Douglas and its community, and we will jointly push hard to bring Port Douglas the bling factor that it had 15 years ago, where world leaders go to play golf and Hollywood celebrities go for vacations.”

Construction of the new hotel is set to begin in early 2021.
