Frasers Hospitality has announced the launch of its urban-inspired, design-led Capri by Fraser brand into Brisbane later this month, with bookings taken from March 23.
This will be the fourth Frasers property in Australia and will join Fraser Suites Sydney, Fraser Place Melbourne and Fraser Suites Perth.
Catering to the ‘always connected’ lifestyle needs of e-generation travellers, Capri by Fraser offers guests the flexibility of choosing how they want to work, live and play by providing an extensive range of hotel facilities along with the added benefits of serviced residences. The hotel residence offers a range of e-efficiencies including iPad-activated check-ins, e-Concierge, e-Print facilities, fast and free wireless Internet to keep guests constantly connected, and providing the option of in-room cooking or restaurant dining, working out at the gym any time of the day, and doing your own laundry or having it done for you.
Choe Peng Sum, chief executive officer of Frasers Hospitality said, “Millennial travellers today represent 20 per cent of international travellers and are expected to grow rapidly to 320 million by 2020. It is for this special group of travellers that we created our intelligent, tech-forward and intuitive hotel residence brand, Capri by Fraser, to help them keep at the top of their game.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the Capri by Fraser brand to Australia following the success we’ve experienced with our flagship property Capri by Fraser, Changi City in Singapore, and particularly in such an outstanding location in inner city Brisbane.”
An effortlessly stylish and vibrant hotel residence designed by award-winning spatial design specialists Ministry Of Design, Capri by Fraser brings a touch of the rainforest to an inner city development featuring a live vertical garden wall and trendy art installations. Designer lounge chairs create a chilled out atmosphere for guests while splashes of bright colour balance out neutral tones and polished surfaces.
Capri by Fraser provides a range of leisure facilities including a 24/7 fully equipped gym, indoor swimming pool, steam and sauna, Capri Club Lounge, a Hot Spot mac station and 24/7 Spin and Play launderette with interactive games rooms where guests are fully entertained with foosball and Xbox Kinect between spin cycles.
Well-equipped for business presentations, meetings and events, the hotel offers two thoughtfully designed event spaces complete with the latest audio visual capabilities including complimentary wireless internet access. Located on level one and showcasing an abundance of natural light, The Pod is a versatile event space that can cater for up to 150 guests. The Pow Wow boardroom is contemporary in style and offering full business compliments and interactive touch-screen panels that integrate whiteboard and projector.
With modern, well equipped kitchenettes available in each suite, guests can choose a different dining option for each meal, from preparing their own, ordering 24/7 in-room dining, selecting something light from the grab and go café, to sitting down to delicious fare in the all-day-dining restaurant.
Travellers can choose from 239 thoughtfully designed suites ranging from Studio Deluxe, Capri Club Rooms and One Bedroom Executives. Each residence is fully furnished with integrated living, kitchenette and bedroom areas and fitted with ergonomically designed desk and Herman Miller work chairs, Malin & Goetz bath amenities, iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines and the latest home entertainment systems. Capri Club Room guests enjoy exclusive access to the Capri Club Lounge, serving complimentary breakfast with eggs cooked to order, all day tea and coffee, evening canapés and beverages.
