When you spend all day every day in a place, playing tourist in your own town can be easier said than done. Book in a staycation at a newly relaunched hotel in the CBD, however, and Brisbanites will be seeing the River City in a whole new light as they hang out on the deck, take a swim with a skyline view and drink cocktails at the lobby bar. Your destination: the revamped Amora Hotel.

If you're keen for a night or several away from home in five-star surroundings, this Creek Street spot now has you covered. The site previously known as the Novotel has undergone a huge revamp, with $30 million being spent on the refurbishment.

Now officially open in its new guise after announcing the details back in November, the Amora Hotel features 296 rooms located over 14 floors, plus an outdoor rooftop pool with a deck that sounds — and looks — 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. Rattan, plus walnut and tan hues, feature heavily. And, because the made-over Brissie venue is going with a vacation vibe regardless of its central location, you'll smell Italian mandarin, amber, jasmine and patchouli while you're onsite.

The rooms also play up the getaway mood, including via wallpaper that nods to a Tunisian oasis and open wardrobes to help make each space look bigger. Some come with city views, with the premier suites on the top two levels featuring balconies — and complimentary mini bars.

Amora Brisbane also boasts a restaurant, a fitness studio and sauna, and 11 spaces for events and conferences. Food-wise, the hotel's new culinary highlights are set to launch in January complete with a new menu and new fitout.

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, 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.

Find Amora Hotel Brisbane at 200 Creek Street, Brisbane City — head to the hotel's website for reservations and further information.
