Oaks Hotels & Resorts to open first Mackay property - Oaks Rivermarque Mackay

16 Apr 2014

A milestone 21st property to open in Queensland under the renowned Oaks Hotels & Resorts brand, Oaks Rivermarque Mackay will be a welcomed addition to Mackay’s typically older accommodation offering, which is rapidly emerging as one of Australia’s most prosperous regional cities.

The opening of Oaks Rivermarque Mackay will see Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ total property portfolio jump to 48, heralding the continuation of an impressive start to 2014, with four new property openings and announcements already occurring since January, including Oaks Grand Gladstone, Oaks Mews in Brisbane, Oaks Pinnacle in Melbourne’s South Yarra and now Oaks Rivermarque Mackay – the company’s first foray into the historical sugar region.

Located on central River Street and fronting the iconic Pioneer River, the 4.5 star property will span eight levels and offer both business and leisure travellers the choice of 138 contemporary hotel rooms, studios and self-contained one and two bedroom apartments – some with dual key facilities, perfect for groups and families.

Each apartment will boast deluxe appointments and finishes as well as modern kitchens, full laundry facilities, spacious lounge and dining areas, Foxtel and private balconies complete with panoramic city and river views. Oaks Rivermarque Mackay’s leisure facilities will include a sizeable indoor swimming pool, spa and well-equipped gymnasium, while an onsite restaurant and café are also scheduled to open in late 2014. Complimentary car parking will also be available for hotel guests.

General Manager of Sales for Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Daniel Csortan, commented, “Oaks Rivermarque Mackay is a significant opening for Oaks Hotels & Resorts as we move into a lucrative region abundant with opportunity. We anticipate this property will be attractive to not only locals looking for a weekend escape but also mining workers and corporates travelling for business as well as holidaymakers seeking comfortable and contemporary apartment accommodation when visiting Mackay or its surrounding island destinations.”

Oaks Rivermarque Mackay occupies a sought after city position with myriad restaurants, bars and cafes within easy walking distance plus a number of popular local attractions including the Bluewater Trail, Mackay Golf Club, Botanical Gardens and Mackay Marina Village.
