Bailey Hotel gears up for November opening in Cairns

Crystalbrook Collection’s latest 5-star hotel for Cairns is finishing off preparations ahead of its November opening.

The sister property to Riley will open on November 2, with a strong focus on sustainability and art.

“The sustainability focus which was started in Riley will have a really strong flow-on through Bailey,” general manager Carl Taranto told the Cairns Post. “We will still have Carton & Co water, recycled timber but the difference between the two will be guests will be able to smell, touch, feel the luxury and the hotel will celebrate the arts in all its different forms.

“There will be fantastic local artists featured throughout the hotel and everyone will soon be able to recognise those creatives who are living on their doorstep.

“Eventually we will grow it into an online gallery so guests can procure some of the sculptures and pieces we’ll be featuring here.”

The lobby will feature a four-storey high water feature cascading over the front of a glass-panelled lift and a vertical tropical garden, and a white and yellow gold-leaf mosaic wall.

Taranto said the hotel would celebrate art “in all its forms”

“We will have activations to allow the public to come in and attend events on the pool deck,” he said.

While the hotel’s bars and restaurants will be open to the public, the pool area will be restricted to hotel guests only.

“We will have activations to allow the public to come in and attend events on the pool deck, though,” Taranto said.

Bailey is now taking bookings.
