IHG to open new Holiday Inn & Suites on the Sunshine Coast


IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) will open a second Holiday Inn & Suites on the Sunshine Coast in early 2028.

The 160-room hotel will include 33 suites and feature meeting spaces and rooftop restaurant and sky bar.

“We’re delighted to be bringing our Holiday Inn & Suites brand to the Sunshine Coast and thrilled to be partnering with Felix Capital on this exciting hotel in Caloundra,” said Cameron Burke, IHG’s director of development, Australasia & Pacific.

“As part of the world’s largest hotel brand family, Holiday Inn’s inimitable hallmarks strongly align to the approachability and leisure-orientated nature of the Sunshine Coast market.

Michael Maroun, CEO of Felix Capital, said the new hotel will be “the crown jewel of the region”.

“Our vision aligns with the Holiday Inn brand as we bring to market the area’s first international hotel, offering an accommodation, dining, leisure and business precinct that is modern, affordable and convenient,” he said.
