The property, formerly the Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa, is AccorHotels fifth for the region, and will commence operation under The Sebel brand in late July. The resort will complement AccorHotels network of existing hotels on the Sunshine Coast – The Sebel Noosa, The Sebel Maroochydore, the Grand Mercure Apartments Twin Waters and iconic Novotel Twin Waters Resort.
Simon Ambrose, CEO at Sunshine Coast Destination Ltd said, “The branding of Pelican Waters to The Sebel is great news for the Sunshine Coast as it brings a renowned hotel brand to the region. The Sebel brand resinates strongly with the leisure and conference markets, both in Australia and internationally.”
Located just 90 minutes by road from Brisbane and 40 minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport, The Sebel Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa is situated on a championship golf course and offers 76 resort rooms (which include spa suites and one and two bedroom apartment options). The Sebel also offers a day spa, swimming pool plus restaurant and bar options.
A popular wedding and conference destination, the resort includes a selection of outdoor and indoor events spaces, including six meeting rooms with capacity for up to 320 people theatre style, or 350 guests for a cocktail reception.
With the addition of The Sebel Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa, The Sebel network now boasts 24 properties across Australia and New Zealand, accommodating the Accor group’s apartment portfolio whilst also maintaining a traditional hotel and resort offering to meet current consumer demands.
