The new $51 million 52-room hotel Ramada VetroBlu Scarborough Beach in Perth opened last Thursday.

The new-build hotel, managed by VetroBlu Management, was developed by Eurowide and branded Ramada under a franchise agreement with Wyndham Hotel Group.

The opening was attended by the new City of Stirling Mayor, Councillor Mark Irwin.

Mayor Irwin said the opening of Ramada Scarborough Beach, which coincided with the filling of Scarborough’s new beachside pool, is a vote of confidence in the revitalisation of the city.

“It is encouraging to see so much interest in Scarborough and the addition of this new hotel will certainly aid the city in attracting more interstate and international tourists to Scarborough Beach,” Mayor Irwin said.

The $100 million Scarborough revitalisation project, which is being delivered by the state government and the local council, is nearing completion and includes the new 50-metre swimming pool at Scarborough Beach, playground upgrades and more cafe and dining options.

Wyndham Hotel Group’s South Pacific director of development, Matt Holmes, said the transformation would have a long-term positive impact on visitor numbers.

“The addition of Ramada Scarborough Beach will play a key role in further elevating Scarborough’s profile and appeal as a key leisure and business destination,” Holmes said.

Ramada Scarborough Beach is 100 metres from the beach and promenade and has a mix of short and long-stay accommodation, with studio, one and two, three-bedroom apartments, as well as four three-bedroom penthouses and one four-bedroom penthouse.

Ramada Scarborough is the second Ramada branded hotel for Perth and the fourth for Western Australia, joining sister properties Ramada Perth, The Outram in West Perth; Ramada Resort Dunsborough and Ramada Eco Beach Resort, Broome.

Ramada VetroBlu Scarborough Beach is located at 48A Filburn Street, Scarborough WA.
