A New Oasis Is Just Around The Corner - Design Transformation Updates

At Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort we strive to improve our guest’s experience and do so by continuous upgrades of our hotel facilities and services, which take us from good to best on our quest to make your stay even better. It is, therefore, our great pleasure to inform you that from mid-October 2018, we will begin a complete design transformation of our guest rooms, combined with the new and exciting bars & restaurants which are due for completion mid December, the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort is set to become a showcase of modern sophistication whilst referencing inspiration from the rich heritage of Tropical North Queensland. Truly a space to live in and feel welcome.

This marks a whole new era for Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort and we look forward to sharing our exciting new look with you very soon. Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort will remain open for the duration of the refurbishment and all design transformation works will be carried out with the greatest care to ensure that our guests stay will not be disrupted. Works in our lobby, bar and alfresco dining area will be completed by mid December.

Stay upto date with our design transformation here.


From ‘cheers’ with friends

to ‘bon appetit’ with someone special.



We’re creating a new show kitchen central to the enlarged dining area for our chefs to proudly share their culinary skills. The lightness of the whitewashed timber & louvres continues through this space. Bathed in sunlight from the garden terrace, the new restaurant has been landscaped with extensive banquette seating. Detailed timber joinery with stone bench tops, new buffet stations can be set in various modes to suit day & evening dining configurations.




The Lobby will be transformed Drawing inspiration from the white washed timber paneling
& louvres of a classic Queenslander home, the lobby walls will be lined throughout with
New lighting that will enhance the softer feel of the white timber paneling. Hand-crafted;
sculptural form timber lounges & reception counters will feature as distinctive and
functional works of art.



A place to share stories

Beautiful natural look stone flooring will extend from the porte cochere, through the lobby
and opening out to the new central bar which will be created as a focus for the entire property.
This will be a place to gather; to relax & to truly enjoy the tropical experience of the gardens &
pool. The double bar has an internal counter serving the cooler lounge area off the lobby and
an outside counter for those guests lounging on the terrace above the pool.
