Toga Group has today (Oct 24) announced an agreement with the Deputy Premier of Victoria and Minister for Regional and Rural Development, Peter Ryan, to develop and manage a brand new Vibe hotel and conference centre in Marysville, Victoria.
Located approximately 100 kilometres east of Melbourne, the township of Marysville was devastated by the Black Saturday bushfires of 2009 and Toga says it is “excited” to be involved in the $28 million development of the brand new hotel and conference centre, one that’s set to play a major role in the rejuvenation of the region.
The hotel and conference centre will be fully integrated with the local community, providing ongoing employment opportunities and attracting increased numbers of local visitors.
Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville will be a contemporary,4-star hotel and conference centre featuring: 100 guest rooms, including five suites; a conference centre and associated conferencing/exhibition spaces for up to 300 people; a restaurant/café; a wine bar/pub; a spa/health and wellbeing centre; gymnasium; and outdoor pool.
“Toga Group is thrilled to announce the upcoming development of Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville,” said Toga Group CEO Allan Vidor. “The town of Marysville is close to the hearts of Australians following the devastation of the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires.
“Toga is honoured to play a key role in the revitalisation of this stunning part of regional Victoria with the development of this brand new hotel and conference centre, and its subsequent management.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Metier3 on this project and applaud the vision of the Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional and Rural Development, Peter Ryan, which has made this development possible,” he said.
The construction of Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville will commence mid-2013. The hotel and conference centre is expected to be open to welcome guests in late 2014. The new hotel is a joint venture with Metier3, the architects behind the fresh and innovative design.
“This exciting development will add character, quality and social benefit to Marysville and at the same time provide a tangible economic stimulus to tourism and private sector business investment right across the region,” Deputy Premier Ryan said.
Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville will be a place where visitors and locals alike will look forward to staying and hosting conferences and events. Along with chic accommodation and conferencing options, guests will relish great dining, a day spa and the hotel’s lifestyle facilities.
Both the exterior and interior of Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville will embrace the local natural environment along with the sophisticated edge that Vibe Hotels are known and loved for. Additionally, Vibe Hotel and Conference Centre Marysville will be purpose built to include all of the features required to obtain a 5 Star Green Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
