New luxury hotel to transform trendy Brisbane suburb

The hip inner city Brisbane suburb Teneriffe is to be home to a new five-star hotel project.

Teneriffe is just 3km north-east of the CBD and was the location of Australia's largest submarine base in World War II. It has been transformed from industrial precinct to a trendy lifestyle zone. 

It has been chosen by IHG Hotels & Resorts and Kokoda Property to bring the Kimpton hotel brand to Brisbane in 2028.

It will form part of Kokoda Property's $1.5 billion mixed-use development comprising hospitality and retail facilities, commercial offices and multiple residential towers as part of a lifestyle precinct.

Kimpton will offer approximately 155 guest rooms, including marquee suites "that will cater to celebrity guests and VIPs".

The hotel will feature a 200+-seat signature restaurant and bar on level 14, a spa with multiple treatment rooms, fitness centre and 618sqm of flexible indoor and outdoor event space.

The Kimpton 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," said Cameron Burke, director of development, Australasia & Pacific, for IHG Hotels & Resorts.

"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. We're thrilled to be partnering with Kokoda Property in pursuit of our common vision to elevate the hospitality space in south-east Queensland."

Founded in 1981 in San Francisco by Bill Kimpton, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is billed as the fastest growing relaxed luxury brand globally.

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.
