Minor Hotels has announced the development of its second Avani Hotels and Resorts property in Australia.
Due for completion in August this year, the 55-storey building is close to the Melbourne Central railway station and a short distance away from the Queen Victoria Markets.
Minor Hotels chief operating officer Dan Hastings says, “Avani Hotels and Resorts is well-known throughout Asia and the Middle-east and after introducing the brand to Australia with the opening of Avani Broadbeach late last year, we can’t wait to expand our footprint further and do the same in Melbourne.”
Avani Central Melbourne Residences will have an indoor swimming pool with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city skyline and two outdoor spas, set adjacent to three outdoor entertaining areas with BBQs and in-built seating.
Guests can also enjoy a game of ping pong or billiards in one of two games rooms, relax in the sauna or steam room and do yoga in the dedicated yoga room. There are also two movie theatres, a library, a conservatory with balcony access, two communal dining rooms and a communal kitchen with a lounge area and fireplace.
Executive manager for Minor Hotels Melbourne Nick Spyropoulos says, “Avani is a young and contemporary brand, known for its focus on the personal details that matter to our guests. We’re very excited to introduce the Avani brand to Melbourne this year and look forward to its success.’
Avani Central Melbourne Residences will join Avani Hotels and Resorts‘ growing global portfolio, with over 20 hotels, resorts and residences currently in operation and seven properties due to open this year.
