The Komo Hotel, overlooking beautiful Moreton Bay at Redcliffe, is due to reopen next week after a $3 million renovation. We take a look inside.
Work is just about finished on the hotel, at Marine Pde, ahead of its scheduled reopening on April 20 (subject to final licensing and approvals).
Queensland Regional Manager Leisure for Lewis Land Group Chris Allison has been overseeing the project which began almost six months ago and can’t wait to share the new-look venue with customers.
The changes include a new and improved terrace, which better frames stunning views of Moreton Bay out to Moreton Island, a refurbed main bar and lounge, new gaming area and sports bar, and charcoal rotisserie in the kitchen. The nightclub has been removed to create a more welcoming sports bar.
“We’ve brought the level of the external terrace up by about a foot and lowered the gardens to celebrate the view more. We’ve pretty much captured the entire foreshore over Moreton Bay now and it sits perfectly under the roof of the pergola and frames the vista,” Mr Allison says.
Key to the design is creating smaller areas within the overall floorplan, which appeal to the growing casual events market.
“It might be a 40th birthday in the northern booth or a christening or baby shower in the outside terrace garden,” he says.
“We’ve been able to give people their own piece of a larger space and that’s a really valuable commodity these days. That’s what people are looking for.”
