Revamped Sunshine Coast accommodation banks on sustainability

Set to open at the end of November, Motel Caloundra aims to be the Sunshine Coast’s first net-zero energy hotel.

The property is described as "hip new accommodation to be launched in the heart of Caloundra’s arts and culture precinct".

The motel is the latest project from hotel developers and designers Andrew and Lucy Pink, who have crafted "a haven of style and tranquillity" opposite The Events Centre and the site of the future Sunshine Coast Regional Gallery.

The Pinks previously introduced Loea Boutique Hotel and Maleny Lodge - both also on the Sunshine Coast - after complete transformations of other former motels.

Motel Caloundra aims to be totally energy self-sufficient with an array of solar panels and storage batteries installed.

It will offer nine rooms, including a two-bedroom family suite and a fully-equipped two-bedroom apartment.

Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Matt Stoeckel welcomed the imminent launch of the revamped motel and its investment in sustainability technology.

“Caloundra is fortunate to have some of the Sunshine Coast’s most attractive beaches as well as having the Glass House Mountains nearby, and this commitment to sustainability highlights our tourism operators’ support for our natural environment,” Stoeckel said.

The revamped former Caloundra City Centre Motel's entry-level standard king room will start from $180 and will feature deluxe king beds with organic cotton sheets, en suite bathrooms, smart TVs with free Netflix, minibars, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryers, complimentary high-speed wifi, air conditioning, organic shampoo, conditioner and soap and daily housekeeping.
