Outrigger Hotels & Resorts has entered into an agreement to purchase the management rights and associated real estate assets of the hotel property currently operating as the Holiday Inn Surfers Paradise.

The sale includes the management rights from Colryan Pty Ltd (managers and receivers appointed) for up to 414 hotel rooms and the real estate assets from Seasilver Hotels Pty Ltd comprising reception, extensive conferencing areas, and restaurant and bar.

Located on a prominent site on Gold Coast Highway and fronting View Avenue, the hotel is 100 metres from the beach and one block from Cavill Avenue. Built in 1986, it was originally branded the ANA Hotel.

If everything goes according to plan, the hotel is expected to rebrand in late 2011 or early 2012 as the Outrigger Surfers Paradise.

Outrigger Hotels & Resorts is a 64-year-old privately-held U.S. company and one of the fastest growing hospitality groups in the Asia-Pacific and Oceania regions. The hotelier has a long association with the Gold Coast after selecting the destination as its base to expand the brand from the U.S. into Australia in 1998.

"The Gold Coast has fared much better than other regions in Queensland which can be evidenced by our other Gold Coast resort at Coolangatta eclipsing revenue and occupancy forecasts for the 2011/2012 period," said Regional General Manager-Australia, Grant James. "Despite current global economic woes, there is a lot of positive news coming out of the Gold Coast which includes the opening of two new five-star hotels, construction of the Gold Coast light rail and planned runway extension at Gold Coast International Airport to allow direct flights from China."

The addition of Outrigger Surfers Paradise boosts the hotelier's portfolio to four in Australia, which numbers close to 1,000 rooms, and almost 11,200 rooms internationally.
