First, the Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina, Cairns, set in North Queensland, Australia—the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef—announced plans to renovate its 184 guestrooms starting on March 2, 2018. The two-phase, $10 million renovation will transform the guestrooms with new designs and modern upgrades.

The first phase will involve 115 rooms and start on March 2 and end on August 21. The second phase, encompassing 69 rooms, will begin on July 30 and finish on December 14. The hotel will continue to operate with uninterrupted service throughout the renovation periods.

Pivoting Back to Travel, The Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Edition

2020 put the nuptial plans of thousands upon thousands of couples on hold, but with the promise of widespread vaccine distribution in the near future, it’s time to get back to planning and ensure your clients live out the destination weddings & honeymoons of their dreams. Hear from top suppliers and destinations on wedding venue & ceremony options, romantic destinations & resorts and more when you watch the event on-demand.

Tasked with the nine-month long project is Sydney-based design firm The Stack, which previously redesigned the Horizon Club Lounge at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney. As part of the new look, the guestrooms will focus on modern simplicity with nautical accents inspired by the hotel’s surroundings on Marlin Marina.

In addition, the revamped accommodations, most with private balconies, will showcase timber floors and a color palette from white to light blue. Other design details include contemporary lighting and fittings, as well as hand-painted artwork crafted directly on the walls to represent waves flowing out to the Trinity Bay horizon. The guest bathrooms will also be upgraded with modern glass showers and new tiles.

ShangriLa also announced that Hylandia by Shangri-La has been renamed Shangri-La Resort, Shangri-La, effective immediately. The name change is designed to enhance the hotel’s awareness among Shangri-La’s guests and better reflect the hotel’s location in northwestern Yunnan Province, China.

Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts currently operates over 100 hotels in 22 countries and 73 destinations under the Shangri-La, Kerry, Hotel Jen and Traders brands.
