“The vision was to create more than just a resort; it was about crafting a premier experience on the Fraser Coast,” said Rhonan O’Brien, MODE’s Principal.

“Every aspect of the design, from the sail-like glazed facades to the cascading balconies to the resort- style recreation decks, is meticulously planned to enhance the connection with the surrounding environment. We have taken care to ensure that many of the apartments and hotel rooms offer stunning views of the Coral Sea and Hervey Bay, including Fraser Island.”

Sheraton Hotels and Resorts, a defining member of the Marriott International family, is in advanced discussions to manage the resort’s 223 opulent rooms. Should the partnership come to fruition, Sheraton Hervey Bay will stand tall as the epitome of luxury hospitality in the region, setting new standards of extravagance and comfort.

Adding to the excitement is the appointment of design luminary Jamie Durie as the project’s ambassador, tasked with crafting an enchanting recreational area that promises to be the talk of the town. It has been reported that a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been inked between Sheraton and developer Sunny Beach Land, marking a significant milestone in bringing this visionary project to life.

Hervey Bay, affectionately known as the “Sleepy Hollow” of Queensland, Australia, is a serene coastal town renowned for its laid-back atmosphere and natural beauty. Nestled along the Fraser Coast and famous for its world class Whale Watching operations, it serves as a gateway to the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island and the pristine waters of the Great Sandy Strait.

With Hervey Bay poised to join the ranks of exclusive Sheraton destinations across Australia, anticipation is building as the resort prepares to welcome discerning travellers and locals alike to experience unparalleled luxury and tranquillity.

“We are excited to be working with developer Sunny Beach Land to introduce a new landmark to the vibrant landscape of Hervey Bay,” said Rhonan O’Brien

“With its innovative design and unparalleled amenities, we believe this five-star resort will set a new standard for coastal living.”
