Luxury property developer, Chiodo, has announced the appointment of Jamie Durie and his team at Durie Design, to create the architecture and landscape concept for its $300 million Port Douglas resort—Fairmont Port Douglas.
Located on the edge of two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest — the resort will be the first new hotel to be built in Port Douglas in 20 years.
Fairmont Port Douglas will offer 253 luxury rooms, several restaurants and bars, a day spa, a treetop walk and panoramic conference and wedding facilities, all designed around resort-style pools.
Chiodo selected Durie’s international multi-disciplinary design practice for its depth of experience in international hotel and resort design, their intimate knowledge of Australian horticulture and Durie’s unwavering commitment to protecting the natural environment.
“We are very excited to partner with Durie Design to deliver this unique tropical luxury experience to Port Douglas locals, domestic and international guests,” said Chiodo Principal, Paul Chiodo.
“The Fairmont Port Douglas pushes the boundaries in the way it captures its natural surroundings and blends seamlessly with the interiors, to deliver a world-class green hotel,” added Chiodo
Construction is set to commence in Q1 of 2021, with opening currently scheduled for 2023.
“I have spent 25 years working with nature and so of course when we were approached to design a green hotel in one of Australia’s most renowned destinations, we were very excited,” said Durie.
“This is a concept that no other 5-star hotel has ever offered in Australia before,” he added.
