Whitsundays resort gets underway

Work has begun on the One Whitsundays resort at Airlie Beach.

One Whitsundays CEO John Zappia said it was the first resort to be built at Airlie Beach since the global financial crisis.

The $70 million at Whisper Bay will have 75 apartments and two penthouses.

Apartments start at $395,000 and One Whitsundays was offering investors a guaranteed 6 per cent return for two years. The resort will be managed by a hotel operator but apartment investors having the option of living on site full-time or adding their property to the rental pool.

“Located adjacent to the Abel Point Marina in a waterfront reserve site it is undoubtedly one of the best locations in Airlie Beach,” Mr Zappia said.

The resort will have a 300-seat conference centre, a lagoon pool cascading across three levels, day spa, gym and Mediterranean restaurant, Café Del Mar.

Meanwhile in Mackay, the Kohuna Beachside Resort is soon to be restored to its former glory.

The facility, formerly known as Kohuna Sands Resort, was opened in 1987.

Earlier this year it was acquired by a group of Mackay businessmen. Kohuna Beachside Resort manager Ron Waters-Marsh said the resort was not yet open but refurbishments are on track for it to be fully unveiled next month.

The three-tier pool has just undergone $50,000 worth of refurbishment and is again the centrepiece of the resort.
