The new-build Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is set to open in the Queensland town of Seventeen Seventy, between Bundaberg and Gladstone, on April 1, 2015.
Set amongst 9000 square-metres of beautifully landscaped vegetation, an extensive lagoon pool and tropical island form the resort’s centrepiece.
Serviced by a top restaurant, with the tranquillity and rejuvenation of the Anjea Day Spa close to hand and a comprehensive suite of first-class boutique conference, wedding and event facilities, Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is stylish by design, comfortable and welcoming by nature.
Lagoons adjuncts the Sir Joseph Banks Conservation Park and a pristine, secluded surf beach is just a short stroll away. It is the perfect base from which to explore the natural wonders of the Southern Great Barrier Reef and lush hinterland, and celebrate life with friends and family.
“I fell in love with the Southern Great Barrier Reef in the early 1990s working with P&O on Heron Island, and discovered Seventeen Seventy,” said Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa General Manager, Simon Della Santa.
“It struck me then that this would be a fantastic location for a full service resort and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to return. Now the region can boast a full service 4.5-star resort, with all the services you would expect in Palm Cove or Port Douglas without the worry of crocs, stingers and the insufferable humidity; here we enjoy the cooling sea breezes and safer waters.
“To enjoy a 4.5 star resort experience on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is only a short six hour drive from Brisbane making it very appealing compared to a two day road tour or flights into Far North Queensland.
“Our guests and the locals will love the quality of dining and events we’re bringing to the region, as will all the local producers we’ve been getting to know.
“Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is fast becoming part of the village scene. This coastal community and its visitors will enjoy a much wider range of services than they’ve had before – Lagoons has everything you need to get the most from your time-out in this magnificent environment.”
Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is the only holiday accommodation in the township with a day spa and full service, self-contained apartments where guests can stay, eat and play in the naturally luxurious surrounds.
Elegantly designed for comfort in the tropics, Lagoons features 112 beautifully modern one and two bedroom suites and executive studios with a choice of balconies, spa baths, patios, outdoor dining spaces and private courtyards, offering views over the beautiful lagoon-style swimming pool or coastal hinterland surrounds.
The Plantation Bar and Restaurant and lively island bar – as well as the onsite conferences and events – all enjoy the same level of professional, personalised catering of the highest quality, created onsite by a team led by Ross Howell, whose career now sees his world-class skills utilised as Culinary Director of the Resort’s dining.
