Kimpton to launch waterfront property in Brisbane

Queensland capital's first Kimpton luxury hotel slated to open in 2028

IHG Hotels & Resorts will open its first ever managed luxury hotel in Brisbane, following the signing of an agreement with Kokoda Property to bring the Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants brand to the suburb of Teneriffe in 2028.

The brand new property will form part of Kokoda Property’s $1.5 billion mixed-use development comprising extensive ground floor hospitality and retail amenity, commercial offices and multiple residential towers in a lifestyle precinct.

Providing a welcomed boost to the luxury hotel market in Brisbane, Kimpton will offer approximately 155 unique, design-led rooms and suites, including marquee suites that will cater to celebrity guests and VIPs. Remaining true to Kimpton’s global reputation around world-class restaurants, this lifestyle hotel will feature a 200-plus-seat signature restaurant and bar on Level 14, a spa with multiple treatment rooms, fitness centre and 618 square-metres of flexible indoor and outdoor event space that makes the most out of Brisbane’s tropical weather.

Kimpton will boast absolute waterfront access and views, including a jaw-dropping infinity pool overlooking the Brisbane River and an open-air Garden Terrace bar. Guests will enjoy incredible vistas on each side of the hotel with sweeping water views, or a spectacular outlook of the Brisbane city skyline.

The vibrant, cool and social inner-city neighbourhood of Teneriffe is the perfect fit for the brand’s guest profile – with trendy wine bars, restaurants, breakfast cafés, dog parks, artisan bakeries and locally loved microbreweries all within walking distance.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our Kimpton brand to Brisbane, particularly in such a strategic location that perfectly aligns to the aspirational ethos of the brand,” said Cameron Burke, Director of Development, Australasia & Pacific, IHG Hotels & Resorts. “Kimpton has an ardent global following amongst the lifestyle-led and socially inclined, which will resonate strongly as part of the Skyring Terrace precinct and within Brisbane’s luxury hotel market. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Kokoda Property in pursuit of our common vision to elevate the hospitality space in South-East Queensland.

“The strength of IHG’s brand portfolio, particularly within the luxury and lifestyle segments, is accelerating the growth of our Australian estate – and this signing is a significant testament to that.”

Mark Stevens, Founder and Managing Director, Kokoda Property said: “The Kimpton brand was the ideal choice for, and will be the centrepiece of, our striking Teneriffe development. The brand’s lifestyle centric positioning, design and playful guest experiences will fit perfectly into this exciting and unique pocket of Brisbane.

“We’re excited to play a part in the regeneration of historic Teneriffe – from its industrial origins into one of the trendiest neighbourhoods of Brisbane. It’s a popular year-round hub for fitness and is set to get even better with Skyring Terrace to connect Brisbane’s famed riverwalk between Teneriffe and New Farm and become the cultural heartbeat of the lively area.”

The signing adds to IHG’s fast-growing luxury and lifestyle portfolio, now the second largest in the world, and reinforces its focus on its growing presence in Australia. In the luxury and lifestyle segment, IHG has 14 open hotels and has a further five in the pipeline in Australia for brands including InterContinental, Six Senses, Hotel Indigo, and now Kimpton.
