The Collection

Say goodbye to the predictable

Hotels and resorts

Discover a hotel brand that goes beyond the same, tired model you’ve come to know. Of course, we’ll have all the familiar amenities like a concierge or minibar—we’re still a hotel company after all. However, at the heart of our business, we’re focused on creating remarkable guest experiences.

Each five-star hotel and resort in Australia has its own distinct personality, ensuring that no two Crystalbrook experiences will ever be the same. So, let’s rebel from the norm, throw away the rule book, and go. With forthcoming hotels and resorts in some of Australia’s best destinations, what are you waiting for?

Riley

Living in the moment

Riley is a sophisticated character with a playful outlook on life and a passion for the resort lifestyle. Residing in a prime location at the northern end of the iconic Cairns waterfront boardwalk, Riley features 311 stylish rooms and suites, most with spacious balconies. Add to this a lagoon swimming pool spanning over 1,000 square metres with a private man-made beach, Eléme Spa and a 24-hour fitness centre and you’re on your way to a truly great stay.

When it comes to restaurants and bars, Riley thinks differently. You’ll find engaging, social, vibrant spaces and a passion for innovation – all day, every day. Pop into Greenfields for a freshly made cold-pressed juice or head to the theatrical Paper Crane for wok-fried Asian greens or the perfect steak. 

And for sweeping views and an atmosphere not to be missed, head to Rocco. Perched 42 metres above sea level, Rocco offers share style food inspired by the Mediterranean along with a stellar Champagne menu, second to none.

Restaurants and bars

Paper Crane

Emulating the sights and tastes of Asia, Paper Crane offers a dining experience in Cairns like no other. Taking advantage of tropical Queensland’s fresh produce, the modern Asian inspired menu instantly transports you to the bustling streets of Asia.

Committing to locally sourced products and small artisanal producers, the chef delivers a mouth-watering menu that embodies the essence of authentic Mediterranean dining. Think aromatic meats cooked over an open grill, herb and spice-accented vegetables that will have you begging for more, and of course, mouth-watering rustic dips presented in earthy ceramic vessels. Top that off with a decadent dessert and you’ve got one satisfied stomach.

Local ingredients and the finest beef are used to create the hearty, flavoursome dishes that offer exhilaration with every bite.

Pachamama

From Barcelona to Buenos Aires, Lisbon to Lima, Pachamama is a sophisticated and stylish fusion of Latin flavours that’s as colourful, bountiful and passionate as Pachamama (Earth Mother) herself.

See, be seen and celebrate with friends and visitors from near and far with a rooftop Caipirinha or a pre-dinner Pisco Sour, then embark on a culinary cultural journey. The menu is jam-packed with flavour and deliciousness, letting authentic Latin influences shine through with every bite.
