Vibe Hotels has confirmed its entry into the Western Australia market with a newbuild hotel set to feature as part of a development in the Perth suburb of Subiaco in the city’s inner-west.
The new hotel, due to open at the start of next month, will complete the Australian puzzle for the Vibe brand, which once complete will see the label active in every Australian capital city. The new Vibe Hotel Subiaco, to be located at the corner of Railway Road and Alvan Street, will be a management agreement in a 12-storey construction project from development firm Dradgin, which will also be Australia’s first new-build Vibe.
Featuring 168 guest rooms capable of transforming into multi-bedroom apartments for larger groups, the property will also include a swimming pool, fitness centre and St Marks Road Co dining outlet on the ground floor. Guests will be situated close to nearby retail and will enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding area, which will also include commercial office space, retail and a cinema complex.
TFE Hotels CEO, Antony Ritch, said he was excited to be bringing the next-generation Vibe brand to Perth by capitalising on the ongoing boom in the city’s upper-upscale accommodation sector.
“Vibe Hotel Subiaco offers the chance to experience a different side to Perth in a vibrant and eclectic suburb on the city fringe,” he said.
“We’ll have rooftop pool for sun seekers and, for those that love al fresco dining, the rooftop Storehouse Restaurant and Bar, will offer incredible views over Perth.”
Dradgin Investment Manager, Lynn Liang, said she was pleased to welcome TFE into the company’s new Subiaco development, saying she is glad the hotel will be run by a highly experienced operator.
“The opening of the hotel will bring long awaited quality hotel accommodation to Perth’s western suburbs, and vitality and amenity to Subiaco,” Liang said.
