Crystalbrook Collection describes ‘Riley’ as a ‘member of the family’ – one that includes siblings ‘Flynn’ and ‘Bailey’. Located only a 10-minute walk from the Departure Terminal for Great Barrier Reef cruises, Riley offers a relaxed tropical vibe in the centre of Cairns.
The new hotel offers 311 rooms and suites and three restaurants all overlooking the Coral Sea including Cairns’ highest rooftop bar, Rocco. There are also flexible conference and event spaces for up to 400 people and Day Spa set to open later this year.
To minimise its impact on the environment, Riley offers what it calls ‘responsible luxury’. No plastic straws or plastic water bottles, a paperless check in, wooden key cards and recycled cardboard coat hangers are just some of the ways the hotel is being environmentally responsible. In addition, 80% of produce comes from within a three-hour drive of Cairns.
