he refurbishment included all of the resort’s 176 guestrooms, suites and villas, and
eight conference spaces, and has reinvented the property’s original charm and
splendour, delivering design to meet the needs of today’s travellers.
Contemporary, functional, yet stylish, the new conference space at Sheraton
Noosa Resort & Spa has received an emphatic thumbs’ up since opening. Business guests and
conference professionals now enjoy fully automated, three metre screening in the Noosa
Ballroom, with newly installed high definition projectors, all digitally controlled and projecting the
most advanced defined image possible. Sheraton signature banquet chairs, complete with
laptop holder, new carpet and curtains, are also features. The end result offers fully functional,
inspiring spaces to conduct successful meetings and conferences.
“Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa has enjoyed ‘iconic’ status for almost 23 years and was the
first high-end, upscale hotel to welcome guests to Noosa,” explains general manager, Stephen
“Over the past year the resort has been completely updated and while it still retains its
distinctive features and status as a feature of Hastings Street, it now offers guests a
contemporary and fresh place to stay and visit.
“This relaunch marks a whole new era for us as well as for Noosa and we look forward to
sharing it with both regular and new guests.”
Redesigned by global architecture and design firm, Woods Bagot, the new-look resort
presents a stylish yet calming interior throughout, featuring soothing, warm tones
complemented by crisp, fresh textures and furnishings, inspired by its Noosa surrounds.
The serene colour scheme continues through to the modern style guestrooms, which
incorporate a sophisticated selection of natural cream and grey tones to complement the
natural wooden furnishings, with splashes of bright orange accents adding a sense of fun to the
otherwise relaxed beach atmosphere.
Inspired by nature and designed for comfort, the light open guestroom spaces draw on the
textures and natural colours of the location taking inspiration from the surrounding environment
and rich cultural heritage.
The porte-cochere area was also included in the renovation to provide an enriched sense of
arrival, and guest corridors now link public areas and guests’ rooms seamlessly. A full repainting
of the building exterior completes the resort’s new look, as does the introduction of a delectable
restaurant and bar from acclaimed celebrity chef, Peter Kuruvita.
Noosa Beach House by Peter Kuruvita replaces the original Cato’s Restaurant & Bar, adding
another level of sophistication to this iconic location. The renewed space boasts a relaxed,
beachside restaurant specialising in the finest and freshest seafood dishes, as well as a thriving
bar serving a selection of cold drinks, cocktails and bar snacks throughout the day. m
The $10 million renovation of the Sheraton
Noosa has exceeded expectations of guests.
