Oaks undergoes multi-million dollar conference transformation

Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort in the Hunter Valley is reaping the rewards of a multi-million dollar investment, which has transformed the property into one of the most sought after conference and events destinations.

Part of leading accommodation provider Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ 54-strong property network, Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort has already seen $6 million invested in upgrades since it was acquired by the hotelier in October, 2013.

The 100-hectare Resort has just completed the final stage of the transformation undergoing additional improvements to further enhance the overall guest experience, with significant investments costing approximately $4 million allocated to upgrading its conference and events facilities, villa accommodation, championship golf course, common areas, and onsite food and beverage establishments.


The Resort’s dedicated conferencing and events precinct has undergone substantial upgrades, in particular the Convention Centre – a grand function space catering for up to 400 guests, which was completed in late 2016. The refurbishment included:

  • The installation of special soundproof, acoustic backed walls, rated RW50, which is the highest available in Australia. The walls allow for ultimate flexibility with the ability to split the large ballroom into 6 individual rooms and various other configurations to suit any event.
  • The Installation of state of the art air-conditioning and lighting systems featuring the latest technology in responsive and customized controls.
  • A comprehensive upgrade of fixtures and fittings designed to create a more ambient space that includes new carpets, curtains, fresh paint with and contemporary colour palette.

A new Lagoon Pool Marque has also recently been added to the property catering for up to 1000 guests in a unique poolside setting that is already proving popular for conferences and special events.
