Mantra Richmont Hotel, a new $28 million (£17.6 million) 108-room boutique hotel at Spring Hill in Brisbane, has officially been opened by Queensland Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones and the Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Graham Quirk.
Merging a bygone era with present day, Mantra Richmont Hotel’s modern design and stylish finishes are complemented by the historic charm of its onsite restaurant and bar, Kennigo Social House, which is housed in a meticulously refurbished heritage listed Queenslander.
The hotel, which is managed by leading Australian-based hotel and resort operator Mantra Group, is the first project undertaken in Australia by Malaysian-based developers Richmont Holdings.
Richmont Holdings Managing Director Gregory Loh said Brisbane was an obvious choice for Richmont Holdings’ first Australian development as their company vision focusses on building high quality hotels in fast-growing major city centres.
Mantra Richmont Hotel showcases a unique design incorporating a heritage building, which houses Kennigo Social House, alongside the brand new five level 4-star boutique hotel complete with a range of onsite leisure and business facilities including internal landscaped Courtyard, an espresso café, 24 hour reception, a gymnasium, meeting facilities, undercover basement car parking and tour desk.
