Start making staycation plans: if you're keen for a night or several away from home in five-star surroundings, Brisbane's Amora Hotel will have you covered from December. The site previously known as the Novotel is currently undergoing a huge revamp, with $30 million being spent on the Creek Street spot's refurbishment. Guests are still staying at the hotel at present, but the new-look venue will officially launch as summer hits.

On offer: 296 rooms located over 14 floors, plus an outdoor rooftop pool with a deck that sounds perfect for Brisbane's usually sultry weather. When you're hanging out indoors, you'll be surrounded by the work of interior designer Cottee Parker. Think: greenery, natural light and tones, and a tradition-meets-contemporary approach.

The Amora Group purchased Amora Brisbane in 2020, adding it to a suite of properties that spans six hotels in Australia and Thailand. As a result, the made-over Brissie venue is going with a vacation vibe even though it's located smack-bang in the middle of the River City's CBD.

"The pandemic brought about a shift in the mindsets of travellers, and their motivations are very different now. They seek unique and meaningful experiences that bring value to their vacations. It is not enough to just position a property as 'five-star luxury'," said Amora Hotels and Resorts Group Executive Director Earp Siriphatrawan.

"We're very excited to soon unveil the complete Amora Brisbane and cater to both locals and travellers alike with a more sophisticated experience," added Amora Hotels and Resorts Group Director Commercial and Business Development Narej Farik.

Amora Brisbane also boasts skyline views, a lobby bar and restaurant, a fitness studio and sauna, and spaces for events. Food-wise, the hotel's new culinary highlights are set to launch in January complete with a new menu and new fitout.

Elsewhere in Australia, the family-owned hotel brand operates Amora Hotel Riverwalk Melbourne — which has been on its books for 25 years — plus Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney.
