The much-anticipated five-star Riley, a Crystalbrook Collection Resort, will open its doors in Cairns today (November 6) putting #responsibletourism at the forefront with a pledge to donate $100 to Citizens of Great Barrier Reef from every room booked at crystalbrookcollection.com for stays in the first week of the hotel’s operation.
Mark Davie, CEO of Crystalbrook Collection said the initiative speaks to Crystalbrook’s core value of #responsibleluxury which highlights environmental initiatives that enhance guest stays without compromising the creature comforts. At Riley this includes a paper free check-in and out, no plastic drinking bottles or straws, the replacement of plastic guest room key cards with 100% recycled wooden cards, and overall 90% less in-room paper than the average five-star hotel.
The 311-room Riley is the first of three hotels from Crystalbrook Collection set to open in the city over the next 14 months and the first new five-star hotel for Cairns in more than 20 years.
