Oaks Hotels & Resorts the leader for conferencing and events in Australia and beyond

06 Feb 2013

As one of Australia’s largest and most popular accommodation providers, Oaks Hotels & Resorts continues to offer conference, meetings and events markets a supreme yet affordable choice in a range of premier city and resort destinations. Now boasting a portfolio of 40 plus properties across Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates, Oaks Hotels & Resorts – a division of Minor International – has recently enjoyed sizeable growth with plans also in place to expand this further in 2013.

A selection of Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ leading resort and city properties have undergone significant redevelopments, while new properties have grown the portfolio in Australia and notably overseas where the accommodation provider has now expanded into Asia and China. From the seaside township of Caloundra to Broome’s unique backdrop, the bustling hub of Bangkok and soon to be Hainan Island in China, Oaks Hotels & Resorts offers something for every traveller.

Acquired in July 2012, Oaks Oasis in Caloundra, Queensland, has recently completed an estimated $2.8million refurbishment to the property’s common areas, accommodation wing and conference facilities. Catering up to 250 guests, the various conference rooms all received notable upgrades and now feature fixed data projectors, motorized screens, in-house audio systems, ambient lighting, and roving and lapel microphones. The St George Room now also houses a sizeable LCD TV with HDMI/VGA capabilities; ideal for business travellers looking to combine conference commitments with a relaxing break by the beach.

Also opening its doors in 2012, the 4.5 star Oaks Cable Beach Sanctuary in Western Australia has added an onsite dining option for guests: Cables Restaurant. Open for breakfast and evening drinks, its opening has been well received by business travellers staying at the resort or minutes down the road at sister property Oaks Broome in Roebuck Bay. Featuring two conference rooms set by the lush, landscaped pool area, Oaks Broome is equipped with all the essential business and leisure facilities in addition to its own restaurant 1861 – also a popular choice for a conference setting. Oaks Hotels & Resorts now has the largest inventory of accommodation rooms in this unique tourist town.

Oaks Mon Komo, located bayside in Redcliffe, is continuing to assert its position as a conference and accommodation hot spot, being named as a finalist in the Moreton Bay & Islands Tourism Awards in late 2012. Onsite bar, gaming lounge and restaurant – the Mon Komo Hotel – also took out top honors at the 2012 QHA Awards for Excellence, firmly putting Redcliffe on the map as a combined business and leisure destination.
Successfully launching its first Asian property in Thailand in September 2012, Oaks Bangkok Sathorn is located in the heart of the business and entertainment districts and offers corporate travellers the option of affordable short and longer stays in full serviced, self-contained apartments with stunning views over the city and river. Sharing amenities with the five-star Anantara Bangkok Sathorn, business guests will be spoiled for choice with gourmet dining options, onsite spa and luxury leisure facilities to choose from.

A second Asian property is also on the agenda for Oaks Hotels & Resorts in late 2013, with Oaks Sanya currently under construction on Hainan Island, located in the South China Sea. Set to house 122 two and three bedroom duplex apartments, the property is expected to open in December of this year and represents significant growth for Oaks Hotels & Resorts in the international market.
