Excitement is building ahead of the opening next month of Heart Hotel & Gallery Whitsundays, a landmark new development scheduled to open mid September in Airlie Beach.

On our recent trip to Airlie Beach, work was still underway on the new boutique hotel, however the Queenslander façade and tropical feel were already apparent, along with high-pitched roofs and verandas dotted along the exterior.

General Manager, Jeff Aquilina reveals the extraordinary detail involved in fitting out the new boutique hotel. "Hunt Design Architects have been tasked with capturing the essence of a tropical Queenslander, creating an elegant and timeless design to blend seamlessly to the Airlie Beach foreshore". Windows have been double-glazed to ensure guests comfort during their stay in the vibrant township.


Located right in the heart of Airlie Beach's resort village, guests will be able to wander to local markets, Port of Airlie and be surrounded by restaurants, cafes and bars.
