QT Hotels & Resorts has officially unveiled QT Resorts, a series of unique designer resorts that celebrate an eclectic design environment and bold entertainment experiences to create an intriguing yet relaxing guest experience.
QT Port Douglas is the second resort to open for QT Hotels & Resorts following the launch of QT Gold Coast at the end of 2011. The chic new resort is Mad Men meets the Hamptons with a sophisticated, upmarket vibe featuring light timber floor coverings and a restrained colour palate of muted pastels.
An oasis of relaxation, there is no need for guests to leave the resort with a large lagoon-style pool and chic lawn party atmosphere, featuring pretty sun loungers and swim up bars. For the ultimate place to relax al fresco day and night, Estilo offers guests exquisite cocktails that can be enjoyed on the lawn or by the pool while listening to vibey lounge music. Those looking for a quieter evening can take a spot at the 300 seat outdoor resort cinema in partnership with Moonlight Cinemas.
For guests who can be enticed away from the ultimate design haven, the natural wonders of one of Australia’s best coastal resort towns are on the doorstep, including the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.
In contrast, QT Gold Coast offers a contemporary living space that is a mixture of nostalgic surfer chic meets Miami swim catwalk. Custom furniture, graphica and pops of bold colour are some of the unmissable highlights of the design inspired by the 1950’s and 60’s with Eames-era chairs, artist crafted feature walls and photographic ceiling mosaics of the Gold Coast through the ages.
Stingray Lounge is where the party starts on the Gold Coast with resident DJs playing late into the night, an extensive cocktail menu replete with 50 in-house tequilas and Southern Californian cuisine. After a night on the town, guests can relax by the large lagoon style pool on one of the colourful sunbeds or step into SpaQ for an unsurpassable custom spa experience featuring a sleek wet zone, with unisex hammam and ice fountain.
QT Gold Coast is the perfect starting point to launch into the dynamic fusion of Gold Coast city culture, fashion and nightlife uniquely set on Australia’s most spectacular beach coastline.
The QT Resort experience begins as soon as guests arrive with a concierge and hostess greeting them in quirky, retro outfits. Service is always attentive, combining an upbeat American vibe teamed with a touch of Aussie flavour.
Bazaar Marketplace is the signature restaurant and heart of both properties. Showcasing an international mosaic of foods, guests of QT Resorts will be spoilt for choice with seafood, crustacean and charcuterie bars, Asian and grill stations a wood fired pizza oven and rotisserie. Bazaar chefs provide a theatrical and thoroughly interactive dining experience to create both an ocular and gastronomic experience for guests.
Rooms at QT Port Douglas (150) and QT Gold Coast (297) have quirks and nuances ensuring that they feel like an individualised home away from home. Each room is individually tailored for an unforgettable QT experience boasting luxurious QT king beds, balconies, bespoke bathrooms, deluxe amenities, iPod dock, 42 inch flat screen and bespoke designer furnishings. QT twin rooms feature twin queen sized beds, perfect for a girls’ weekend away and signature Suites boast Japanese deep soak baths.
QT Hotels and Resorts is the concept of AHL, one of Australia’s premier entertainment, hospitality, tourism and leisure companies. The properties promise to deliver an eclectic design experience, teamed with bold entertainment offerings and unsurpassable service for corporate and leisure travellers. Other properties currently in planning for QT Hotels and Resorts include flagship property QT Sydney.
