Oaks Hotels & Resorts, which forms part of Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group, has unveiled plans to expand its portfolio in Queensland this summer.
Opening its doors in July 2014, the 138-room Oaks Rivermarque Mackay will be located on River Street, in the central Queensland city of Mackay, overlooking the Pioneer River.
Spanning eight floors, the 4.5-star property will offer 138 hotel rooms, studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Facilities will include an indoor swimming pool, spa and gym, while a restaurant and café are also expected to open in late 2014.
“Oaks Rivermarque Mackay is a significant opening for Oaks Hotels & Resorts as we move into a lucrative region abundant with opportunity,” said Oaks’ general manager of sales, Daniel Csortan.
“We anticipate this property will be attractive to not only locals looking for a weekend escape but also mining workers and corporates travelling for business as well as holidaymakers seeking comfortable and contemporary apartment accommodation when visiting Mackay or its many nearby islands.”
The new Mackay property will become Oaks’ 21st property in Queensland and its 48th overall. Already this year, the company has opened or announced four new properties, including the Oaks Grand Gladstone, Oaks Mews in Brisbane, Oaks Pinnacle in Melbourne and now the Oaks Rivermarque Mackay.
