Event Hospitality and Entertainment (EVENT) has opened its first South Australian property and first airport-based hotel – Atura Adelaide Airport.

The seven-storey property, located at 1 Atura Circuit, began construction a little over a year ago and features 165 rooms each furnished with Atura’s signature ‘Dream Beds’, with all guests served by a 24-hour reception and free wireless internet access.

Linked to Adelaide Airport’s terminal plaza via a direct walkway, the property created 350 jobs in its construction and at least 65 new ongoing positions to manage and operate the hotel.

Public facilities include the Hangar Bar & Grill, fitness centre, dedicated port-cochere for coaches to drop off and collect guests and facilities for business including eight function and meeting rooms.

Event Hospitality and Entertainment Director of Hotels, Norman Arundel, said the new Atura Adelaide provides an extra accommodation option for the eight-million guests flying annually into Adelaide Airport and a new base from which to explore the city of Adelaide.

“Adelaide is a vibrant city, home to an incredible food and wine scene, fabulous beaches, and a wealth of cultural events.

“Atura Adelaide Airport will provide travellers the opportunity to experience the Atura philosophy of value-driven urban design and great local hospitality. We’re also looking forward to welcoming the airport community of staff into the Hangar Bar and Grill to enjoy our quality food and beverage.”
