Martin Hamilton joins Spicers Peak as general manager

Martin Hamilton has been appointed general manager of Spicers Peak Lodge in Queensland’s Scenic Rim.

Hamilton comes to the role from New Zealand property The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs where he was Lodge Manager for more than two-and-half years.

“We are delighted to have him on board and expect him to bring his passion for exceeding guest expectations to this new role with Spicers,” said co-founder of Spicers Retreats, Jude Turner.

Hamilton said he was looking forward to the challenge and to returning to Australia.

“I left Australia in 2002 and spent seven years in the UK most notably at Turnberry in Ayrshire, Scotland,” he said. “I adopted New Zealand as my new home in 2009 working at Millbrook in Queenstown before before joining Kauri Cliffs in 2017.

“I enjoy the uniquely personal nature of lodges. It enables us as staff to really get to know our guests and in doing so, create authentic and memorable experiences based around the property.

“Spicers Peak Lodge is one of Australia’s finest properties and I’m looking forward to delivering the relaxed luxury that is at the heart of the Spicers offering.”
