FLYERS travelling through the South Australian capital will soon have somewhere to stay close to their aircraft with building now underway on the new Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport.
The 165-room hotel, which will cost $50 million to complete and is expected to welcome its first guests at the end of 2018, will be connected to the airport’s domestic and international terminals and feature a restaurant and bar as well business centre and flexible meeting spaces.
“We are thrilled to deliver Atura Hotels to South Australia,” says Event Hospitality & Entertainment’s chief executive officer Jane Hastings.
“Atura will provide the eight million passengers flying into Adelaide each year the opportunity to experience the Atura philosophy of value driven urban design, quality food and beverage, and great local hospitality.”
The brand’s signature “free-flowing communal spaces” will be a feature of the Adelaide Airport hotel while the restaurant, bar, lobby and general public spaces will link seamlessly with the airport terminals and can be accessible by all travellers and not just hotel guests.
A walkway will link the hotel with the airport’s domestic and international check-in area on level two and a a port-cochere will make it easy for guests to arrive and depart.
“More than 8 million people fly in and out of Adelaide Airport each year, and many of our customers have indicated they would welcome the convenience of an airport hotel to enable catching early morning flights after meetings or conferences,” says Adelaide Airport’s managing director Mark Young.
“We believe the Atura Hotel offers a real point of difference to the airport precinct. It’s great to see construction underway and we look forward to welcoming the first customers late next year.”
The Atura name was launched in late 2013, with the opening of Atura Blacktown in Sydney, and the brand now delivers a fresh take on the hotel experience by blending edgy design with vibrant public areas and modern technology.
“Packed with personality and with a focus on great design and quality food and drink offerings, Atura Hotels offer design-savvy travellers a fresh travel experience; one we believe will hold great appeal for all airport precinct visitors and not just hotel guests.”Event Hospitality and Entertainment’s group managing director David Seargeant
