Lisa Dudzik Perth, WA aims to give a virtual tour of her hometown to blog readers. Read on to learn more about the exciting developments in the hospitality industry.
Tourism in Western Australia seems to be picking up albeit very slowly. Data taken from the Government of Western Australia’s tourism site showed marginal growth in the number of international visitors as of June 2017. Visitor spend increased by a mere 1.3%, but there has also been a notable decline in spend among intrastate visitors. Image Source: Booking.com
“It appears the hospitality industry isn’t in the best shape,” says Lisa Dudzik. Perth will see three new luxury hotels in the coming years. Hopefully, these will attract more tourists.
Set to reshape Perth’s skyline are:
1. Ritz-Carlton – The luxury hotel is planning to operate at Elizabeth Quay by 2019. A representative has expressed confidence that Perth is a prime location for luxury hotels over the next decade. Lisa Dudzik Perth says that the Ritz-Carlton will feature 204 luxury hotel suites and a wide range of top-of-line recreational amenities, including signature treatments and tailored spa experiences, vitality pools & treatment rooms, fitness center, roof bar & lounge, pool, whirl pool, restaurant, meeting rooms, and more.
2. DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront Hotel – The local arm of Malaysian property developer SKS Group will unveil a new four-star Hilton DoubleTree Hotel at Elizabeth Quay in 2018. The 241-hotel will overlook stunning views of the Swan River and Perth cityscape. SKS Group manages two other Hilton hotels in Perth, which are DoubleTree by Hilton Northbridge and DoubleTree by Hilton Fremantle.
3. Westin Hotel – The eastern side of Perth’s central business district will be home to a $500 million Westin Hotel developed by BGC Construction. The 28-level hotel at 480 Hay Street will be the crown jewel of high-quality development and state-of-the art amenities around the area. These include food and drink options, alfresco areas, cocktail bars, dine-in and takeaway options, as well as a downstairs late-night jazz or blues venue.
“This is a surprising location,” says Lisa Dudzik Perth central business district has two sides. The eastern side has a shabbier characteristic.
“There are middle class hotel projects in the pipeline as well,” adds Lisa Dudzik. “Perth will see a Mantra Hotel by Jaxon at Hay Street. It’s an $80 million 27-storey project that was just announced last month.”
