LUXURY property developer Chiodo has signed a deal with global hotelier Accor to bring the iconic brand Fairmont to its new $300 million Port Douglas luxury resort.

The new Accor Fairmont Port Douglas will be the first of its kind in Australia.

The resort at 71-85 Port Douglas Rd will be the newest hotel in Port Douglas for 20 years and will offer guests a selection of 253 luxury rooms, with 136 basement car parking spaces, business centre, conference facilities, day spa, swimming pools, gym, restaurant, bars and cafe.

Chiodo principal Paul Chiodo said the group chose Accor from 12 hotel submissions due to its shared vision adding that the new Accor Fairmont Port Douglas will be the first of its kind, in that it will be locally focused yet globally artistic, cultivating a celebration of the planet, sustainability and humanity.

“Our vision is to deliver an environmental hotel that still encapsulates the hallmarks of a luxury hotel and Accor clearly shares the same passion that we have at Chiodo Corporation for Port Douglas itself.

“We both share a love for Port Douglas and its community, and we will jointly push hard to bring Port Douglas the bling factor that it had 15 years ago, where world leaders go to play golf and Hollywood celebrities go for vacations.” Chiodo said.

Construction is set to commence in Q1 of 2021.
