Here’s Your First Look At Noosa’s Next Luxurious Resort

All the more reason to vacay

Biiiiig news for lovers of luxury boutique hotels on par with our city’s very own The Calile Hotel: Calile Malouf Investments (CMI) – aka the team that brought us our fave green and white striped umbrella locale – is set to make their mark on the Sunny Coast, with an integrated resort in Noosa, and you just know it’s going to be a knockout.

Comprising of 178 rooms, 12 suites, and 15 villas (ritzy), the resort will be designed by award-winning Brissy architects Richards & Spence, and will perch on a 2.4-hectare bushland site just a short drive from Hastings Street. 

Bringing a different kind of oomph to the party than the beloved James Street digs, the new resort will epitomise luxury with multiple swimming pools, a tennis court, wellness facilities, a cinema, and several function spaces. Ridgy-didge.  

As for the rooms, there’ll be a range of standard rooms along with larger suites, and three-bedroom villas topped off with their own private pool. 

And just like its city slicker sis, you can bet the resort will flourish with lush greenery in abundance, channelling the design ethos that’s enmeshed in the sub-tropical feel of James Street, under the talented green thumb of landscape architect Marc Conlon of Conlon Group. 

Going one step further, the resort is set to target carbon-neutral operations with large scale vermicomposting (commercial worm farms), bio-dehydrators, and a rooftop culinary garden to be used across the resort restaurants. Yeah Mother Earth!

And, guests who fancy a sojourn down Hastings Street will be privy to hop on board a solar powered electric ferry that’ll pick them up from a nearby access point via a scenic pathway through the adjunct ecological reserve. 

Keen to book your stay? You’ll have to be a little patient. Works for the project are set to commence in early 2024 with the goal to open in 2026.

In the meantime, book a stellar weekend escape here.
