New look and new name for Sunshine Coast resort

Novotel Twin Waters Resort has officially rebranded as Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort following a $2 million refurbishment of the hotel lobby, plus a new look bar and alfresco deck overlooking the resort’s outdoor pool and lagoon.

Matt Young, Accor’s vice president operations QLD/NT, said that the recent lobby transformation, completed in late October, was one of the catalysts for the resort’s new name.

“Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort better reflects the property’s evolution and aligns the resort with the Sunshine Coast Convention Centre, which opened earlier this year,” he said.

“We believe that it’s a more progressive and appropriate name given that we are located in a destination being profiled on the international stage now more than ever before.

“We’re very excited with the new look lobby and SOLA bar and lounge. During our soft launch phase, SOLA bar has already been well received by guests and locals as a great venue to meet for casual dining or drinks. We anticipate this will become popular for locals as well.”

The resort’s owners Shakespeare Property Group have invested heavily in the resort over the past year, not least of all with the opening of its $8 million purpose-built Sunshine Coast Convention Centre in May 2019.

“After winning the Gold award in the category of Business Event Venue at the 2018 Queensland Tourism Awards, the Sunshine Coast Convention Centre is excited for the 2019 results and future of the Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort,” said Young.
