Kooralbyn Resort in the Gold Coast hinterland has re-opened its doors for the first time in eight years following an AUD$8 million refurbishment under Wyndham Hotel Group’s rapidly expanding Ramada brand.

The newly rebranded Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley, formerly Kooralbyn Resort, is owned by Peter Huang of Yong Real Estate and JHC Holdings and will provide tourism and leisure facilities that appeal to a broad demographic, including the international market.

“I am pleased to be partnering with Wyndham Hotel Group to be part of a globally recognised brand. Our team has worked hard to restore the iconic resort to deliver even greater offerings than ever before,” Huang said.

“We look forward to showcasing Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley’s variety of more than 80 onsite activities, while providing exceptional customer service.”

Located on 333 hectares of picturesque countryside in the Scenic Rim region, approximately 80km from the Gold Coast, the 102-room resort offers a variety of activities for guests to enjoy from sky diving, mountain biking and water sports, to a health and wellness centre including a day spa and natural hot spring baths for relaxation.

“Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley is a truly unique experience for visitors to the Scenic Rim region looking for some fun and relaxation and will provide them with onsite facilities that are unlike any other in Queensland,” Robinson said.

Other highlights of the resort include full conference, wedding and meeting facilities, two outdoor pools, a kids’ club, resort store, 18-hole championship golf course, 12 tennis courts, gym, sauna, plus restaurants and bars.
