Aquis Hotel Surfers Paradise
Aquis Australia is developing a new $440 million hotel on a prime beachfront position in Surfers Paradise that will become a benchmark for luxury accommodation in the Asia Pacific region and attract a new generation of well-heeled travellers to the Gold Coast. The current tower will be demolished to make way for a 48-storey complex that will include 580 hotel rooms and suites as well as the Gold Coast’s premier dining and entertainment facilities.
Located in the heart of Australia’s capital Casino Canberra is the city’s major entertainment and nightlife venue. Aquis is currently progressing a $330 million upgrade to the complex including a six-star hotel, a 100-suite, five-star hotel as well as new bars, cafes and restaurants and promenade-style shopping precinct featuring some of the world’ leading brands. Casino Canberra is owned by the ASX-listed Aquis Entertainment Ltd
