Accor confirmed as operator of $300 million Port Douglas resort

Port Douglas will soon be home to a new $300 million five-star Fairmont resort, with construction scheduled to commence as early as January 2021. Hotel Operator Accor and Developer Chiodo Corporation revealed the vision for the luxury 253-room environmentally-conscious resort yesterday, which will feature architecture by Buchan.

“This is going to be a truly special resort, whose architecture mimics the rich biosphere of the Daintree Rainforest and which is centred on well-being, nature and cultural immersion,” said Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer Simon McGrath of the design.
