Oaks Hotels & Resorts expands network in Tropical North Queensland with acquisition of QT Port Douglas

170 Rooms

Leading accommodation provider Oaks Hotels & Resorts, a division of Minor Hotels, is strengthening its presence in Tropical North Queensland, announcing it has acquired the freehold interest of the boutique resort QT Port Douglas and adjoining land.

In a deal brokered by CBRE, the 170-room resort – now called Oaks Resort Port Douglas – will present holidaymakers with Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ smart simplicity and spacious apartment accommodation in a coveted coastal destination, which is touted as the jewel in Tropical North Queensland’s crown.

Renowned for its laidback holiday charm, Oaks Resort Port Douglas is ideally positioned just a stone’s throw from Four Mile Beach and the tourist town’s most popular attractions.

Guests are just five minutes from Macrossan Street – Port Douglas’ shopping, wining and dining hub, as well as the sparkling marina and award-winning golf courses – which can all be accessed on the historical Bally Hooley train, which stops off right in front of the Resort.

For adventure seekers, the Resort is also just 20 minutes from sheltered swimming holes and easy walking tracks at Mossman Gorge; and just over an hour from the world’s oldest and heritage-listed rainforest, the Daintree. The Great Barrier Reef is easily accessible for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts, with a number of local operators departing from Port Douglas daily.

Boasting an ocean-inspired setting, the Resort has been designed to reflect a tropical paradise that sets the scene for leisurely days spent swimming, sipping, indulging and relaxing in the heart of Port Douglas.
