Pacific International Cairns $20 Million Makeover

Posted on August 21, 2013 by

Over the past five years the ‘Pacific International Cairns’ hotel has spent close to $20 million in refurbishment and enhancement to be “more in tune with today’s modern travelers”.


The ‘Pacific International Cairns’ was the first international hotel in Cairns and brought travelers from all over the world to our region since 1982.


Some of the new features include:

– New look porte cochere,
– Foyer,
– Lobby,
– Sugar Cane lounge,
– Public area,
– Front façade,
– New lifts,
– Energy efficient air-conditioning units,
– And a new hotel management system will also be introduced very shortly.

Some more iconic pieces have been kept and brought back to their former glory such as the two oversized chandeliers hanging in the middle of the lobby lounge. Suzanne Dawson, experienced Interior Designer for Stone Edge, was the mastermind behind it all.

Paul Kamsler, Executive Director of the ‘Pacific International Cairns’, is very excited to see the end of the refurbishment program: “We are now approaching the end of our refurbishment and enhancement program, which has seen an investment in the hotel of around $20 million dollars over the past five years, with three quarters of that spent in the last 18 months.”


The whole process was executed with minimal guests’ disturbance.


The Conference Centre has also undergone a facelift and will most definitely attract conferences and meetings from all over Australia.


The ‘back of the house’ was also part of the refurbishment plan and includes new offices, training room equipped with the latest technology as well as a new staff canteen.
