Set amid Kokoda Property’s ambitious $1.5 billion mixed-use development, the forthcoming Kimpton in Brisbane’s Teneriffe promises to redefine the city’s hospitality landscape. The project encompasses an extraordinary array of offerings, including ground-floor hospitality and retail facilities, commercial offices, and multiple residential towers, all forming a lifestyle precinct.

Kimpton will offer approximately 155 unique, design-led rooms and suites, including marquee suites that will cater to celebrity guests and VIPs. Remaining true to Kimpton’s global reputation around world-class restaurants, this stunning lifestyle hotel will feature a 200-plus-seat signature restaurant and bar on Level 14, a spa with multiple treatment rooms, fitness centre and 618sqm of flexible indoor and outdoor event space that makes the most out of Brisbane’s tropical weather.

Excitingly, Kimpton will boast absolute waterfront access and views, including a jaw-dropping infinity pool overlooking the Brisbane River and an open-air Garden Terrace bar. Guests will enjoy incredible vistas on each side of the hotel with sweeping water views, or a spectacular outlook of the Brisbane city skyline.

Every Kimpton is an individual brand, anchored in its individual design perspective, to ensure the richest and most immersive brand experience.

The vibrant, cool and social inner-city neighbourhood of Teneriffe is the perfect fit for the brand’s guest profile – with trendy wine bars, restaurants, breakfast cafés, dog parks, artisan bakeries and locally loved microbreweries all within walking distance.

Cameron Burke, Director of Development, Australasia & Pacific, IHG Hotels & Resorts said: “We couldn’t be more excited to bring our Kimpton brand to Brisbane, particularly in such a strategic location that perfectly aligns to the aspirational ethos of the brand.

“Kimpton has an ardent global following amongst the lifestyle-led and socially inclined, which will resonate strongly as part of the Skyring Terrace precinct and within Brisbane’s luxury hotel market.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Kokoda Property in pursuit of our common vision to elevate the hospitality space in South-East Queensland.
