Ramada Resort Port Douglas is set to receive a $200,000 facelift when refurbishments kick off next month.
As part of the works, the current restaurant bar will be demolished and remodelled beside the resort’s lagoon pool, while a vertical green wall will be incorporated into the design to bring the tropical setting inside.
The resort’s swim-up pool bar will be replaced with a new version and a lounge area complete with a pool table and five big screen televisions will be added.
Resort manager Duncan Mars said the renovations would give guests more room to relax and enjoy views of Ramada Port Douglas’s lush gardens and pool.
“Moving the bar from where it currently is will effectively double the seating area available by opening up the floor space and streamlining the whole restaurant, bar and pool area,” Mr Mars said.
“This will make it a lot more comfortable and our guests will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy great service in a beautiful setting.”
Fixed Group won the tender for the development, which is due for completion ahead of the busy Easter school holiday period.
Set amongst a pocket of Melaleuca rainforest and surrounded by lush gardens and free flowing waterways filled with barramundi, Ramada Port Douglas is a mixed-use resort for the use of timeshare owners in the WorldMark South Pacific Club, as well as hotel guests.
