Kingfisher Bay Resort in Queensland to Join Accor's Mercure Brand

Fraser Island's Kingfisher Bay Resort is set to join hotel management group, Accor. From the 15th of April, the hotel component of the Queensland resort will be known as the Mercure Kingfisher Bay Resort Fraser Island.

The hotel component of Kingfisher Bay Resort which will be rebranded to Mercure offers 152 hotel rooms, with large private decks offering either wallum or lake views with bathrooms, some with spas.

Mercure Kingfisher Bay Resort guests have access to a broad range of onsite facilities, including four swimming pools, tennis courts, water sports and a Beauty Salon.


The resort also offers three restaurants, two lounge bars, a cafe and a late bar. Five meeting rooms are available for business events and conferencing.

Other features of Kingfisher Bay Resort which remain independent of the Mercure branding include more than 100 self-contained two and three bedroom villas, 7 KBR holiday houses and a 174-bed Wilderness Lodge for groups as well as Fraser Island touring and marine businesses.

In addition the environmentally aware hotel will eventually implement the acclaimed Mercure Meetings Carbon Neutral Conference program. Mercure hotels in Australia work closely with the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) to calculate and offset greenhouse gas emission sources, such as a travel and accommodation, to provide a full range of services to guests without impacting the environment.

Mercure is the largest mid-market hotel brand in Australia, with 28 hotels in locations across the country and more than 670 hotels in 50 countries globally.
