Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 6 October 2011

The Japanese tourism, hotel and transportation company Iwasaki Sangyo, has appointed the Accor Group to manage its Capricorn Resort in Yeppoon, on the central Queensland Coast.

The hotel will be managed under Accors Mercure brand as the Mercure Capricorn Resort Yeppoon.

A short 30-minute ferry ride from famous Great Keppel Island located off the coast of Yeppoon, the existing 281-room resort is set on a secluded coral reef coastline with an outlook to the Great Barrier Reef.

Located 40 kilometres from the Rockhampton airport for easy intra or inter-state travel and overseas connections, the Mercure Capricorn Resort Yeppoons extensive facilities include four restaurants and bars, eight conference and meeting spaces, and a large swimming pool and spa.

Two golf courses, including a Championship golf resort, are located on the property for the convenience of guests, along with many other sports facilities. With its close proximity to the Whitsunday waters, the resort is also well located to take advantage of the many water sports and boating activities close by, making the most of the Capricorn Coasts great climate and coastal features.

Im expecting Accor to increase the number of guests from inter-state and overseas with their global sales network. Meanwhile, we will be the first resort in the Central Queensland district to have an Accor brand, so this is also a benefit for the group to have a new sales base in this region, said Yoshitaro Iwasaki, Iwasaki Group CEO and the Owner of Capricorn Resort. Iwasaki Sangyo is now planning to further develop the Capricorn Resort and Im assured that the launch of the newly branded Mercure Capricorn Resort is one of the significant milestones of this future development. I hope the well known Mercure brand will raise the profile of our Capricorn Resort globally with their professional hotel operations, and add to the overall reputation and quality of the resort.
