i By May 1, 2024 No Comments

Announced today at AHICE Asia Pacific, the brand new, luxury Kimpton in Brisbane’s Teneriffe neighborhood will form part of Kokoda Property’s $1.5 billion mixed-use development comprising extensive ground floor hospitality and retail amenity, commercial offices and multiple residential towers in a lifestyle precinct. Teneriffe is an inner-city neighborhood with trendy wine bars, restaurants, breakfast cafés, dog parks, artisan bakeries and locally loved microbreweries.

Kimpton Brisbane Teneriffe will offer approximately 155 unique, design-led rooms and suites, including marquee suites that will cater to celebrity guests and VIPs. It will also have a 200-plus-seat signature restaurant and bar on Level 14, a spa with multiple treatment rooms, fitness center, and more than 6,600 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor event space that makes the most out of Brisbane’s tropical weather. In addition, the hotel will boast absolute waterfront access and views, including an infinity pool overlooking the Brisbane River and an open-air Garden Terrace bar.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our Kimpton brand to Brisbane, particularly in such a strategic location that perfectly aligns to the aspirational ethos of the brand. Kimpton has an ardent global following amongst the lifestyle-led and socially inclined, which will resonate strongly as part of the Skyring Terrace precinct and within Brisbane’s luxury hotel market,” said Cameron Burke, director of Development, Australasia & Pacific, IHG Hotels & Resorts. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Kokoda Property in pursuit of our common vision to elevate the hospitality space in South-East Queensland. The strength of IHG’s brand portfolio, particularly within the luxury and lifestyle segments, is accelerating the growth of our Australian estate – and this signing is a significant testament to that.”

“The Kimpton brand was the ideal choice for, and will be the centerpiece of, our striking Teneriffe development. The brand’s lifestyle centric positioning, design and playful guest experiences will fit perfectly into this exciting and unique pocket of Brisbane,” said Mark Stevens, founder and managing director, Kokoda Property. “We’re excited to play a part in the regeneration of historic Teneriffe – from its industrial origins into one of the trendiest neighborhoods of Brisbane. It’s a popular year-round hub for fitness and is set to get even better with Skyring Terrace to connect Brisbane’s famed riverwalk between Teneriffe and New Farm and become the cultural heartbeat of the lively area.”

IHG currently has 53 hotels operating under eight brands in Australia, including InterContinental, Kimpton, Vignette Collection, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, voco, Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, with another 19 hotels in the pipeline, including Kimpton Teneriffe.
