Mantra Richmont Hotel, a new AUD$28 million 108-room boutique hotel at Spring Hill in Brisbane, was officially opened last week (Oct 26) by Queensland Minister for Tourism and Major Events the Honourable Kate Jones MP and the Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Councillor Graham Quirk.
Merging a bygone era with present day, Mantra Richmont Hotel’s restaurant and bar, Kennigo Social House, is housed in a meticulously refurbished heritage listed Queenslander.
The hotel, which is managed by leading Australian-based hotel and resort operator Mantra Group, is the first project undertaken in Australia by Malaysian-based developers Richmont Holdings.
Richmont Holdings Managing Director, Gregory Loh, said Brisbane was an obvious choice for Richmont Holdings’ first Australian development as their company vision focusses on building high quality hotels in fast-growing major city centres.
“We’ve always seen the potential growth and development Brisbane has to offer and, in our assessment, we also considered the many long term investments and future plans for the city,” Loh said.
“We also specialise in integrating modern buildings with historical sites, like we’ve done with Mantra Richmont Hotel, thus preserving cultural ties within the city.”
The four-star Mantra Richmont Hotel has five floors and features a range of onsite leisure and business facilities including internal landscaped courtyard, an espresso café, 24 hour reception, a gymnasium, meeting facilities, undercover basement car parking and tour desk.
