The hotel’s events and banqueting team has created special packages incorporating the hotel’s picturesque natural spaces into a wide range of small to medium-sized functions.

The creative functions team can also coordinate spaces for break-out groups and after-parties to ensure a memorable event. The hotel can combine the outside spaces with four more traditional function rooms with a capacity for up to 120 delegates.

General manager Glen Macdonald said that, following the hotel’s rebranding earlier this year, the team had been focusing on incorporating Cairns’ tropical environment into every aspect of a guest’s stay.

“When event organisers are planning a function in Cairns, the demand is to bring the destination into the theming, and we are fortunate to have extensive tropical gardens that are perfect for incorporating into any event,” he said. “Even if groups want to use our more traditional interior spaces, we can make the event special by hosting lunches, dinners, cocktail functions and breakout sessions in the gardens. For weddings, we are a one-stop event space because we have Trinity Bay just across from the front of the hotel, and it is a perfect setting for atmospheric photos. The gardens – particularly our Secret Garden – also provide a beautiful setting, and our banqueting team are renowned for indulgent catering based around the region’s tropical cuisine.”

The function spaces include:

The Garden Terrace: Suitable for up to 80 guests, the leafy surrounds  provides a relaxed all-weather venue with views towards Cairns Esplanade and Trinity Bay. 

The Secret Garden: This intimate alfresco space can cater for up to 30 guests in a hidden destination among the palms. 

The Patio:  The Patio is an open-air space ideal for cocktail parties of up to 40 guests.  

The Deck: For casual poolside events, surrounded by tropical gardens and with views of The Esplanade and Trinity Bay, The Deck can host up to 40 guests in alfresco style.

The Verandah: The Verandah provides a bright space for up to 60 in all-weather comfort adjacent to the shimmering sapphire-blue pool. 

The Atrium: Grand banquets for up to 120 guests.
