First glimpse at Emporium Hotel South Bank Emporium Hotels, one of Australia’s most awarded boutique luxury hotel brands, is delighted to provide a sneak peek at its latest property in South Bank Brisbane.

The highly anticipated Emporium Hotel South Bank features 143 sumptuously appointed suites, a selection of premium food and beverage offerings and a spectacular rooftop, 23-metre infinity edge pool and bar with sweeping views of the Brisbane River and city skyline.

A selection of sophisticated, state-of-the-art meeting and events spaces are also available, including the grand, pillar-less Frangipani Ballroom which accommodates up to 350 cocktail style, and three purpose-built boardrooms.

Emporium Hotel South Bank, General Manager, Peter Savoff said, “We couldn’t be more excited to reveal the new, flagship Emporium Hotel, a project of grand proportions.
Everyone who visits us will see that no expense has been spared to offer our guests a heightened, sensory experience We are looking forward to raising the bar in boutique luxury accommodation, not only in Brisbane, but nationwide and beyond.”

Independently owned and operated, Emporium Hotel South Bank is the vision of Anthony and Francine John, the dynamic team behind the original Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley, which built an enviable track record of awards and recognition over its 10 years of operation.

The design-driven hotel showcases an exquisite blend of contemporary beauty and functionality, with a number of Queensland-based artisans behind the numerous bespoke features.

“The owners have engaged the incredible skills of local artisans to create spectacular showpieces throughout the Hotel. For instance, the attention-grabbing back-lit red glass shard wall in the lobby, along with the giant Emporium ‘E’ entry statement were created by award-winning Cairns-based John Hyde Glass Innovations.

The striking mirror-finish, 4m tall frangipani doors seen in the Hotel’s lobby and in the ballroom, were produced by Langford Industries, one of Queensland’s largest fabricators of sheet metal, and the porte-cochere’s stunning water feature was designed and manufactured by Focal Point Water Features,” said Savoff.

“What is also particularly exciting is the fact that some of the stunning features from the original Hotel in Fortitude Valley have been carried across, including the beloved antique Parisian shopfront, which will have pride of place in its new home”.

Mr Savoff added that the theme of elegant luxury continues into each of the Hotel’s suites. “Whether for business or leisure, our suites have been purpose designed for indulgence and to satisfy the most discerning traveller.

There is no ‘entry level’ experience here – each spacious, sumptuously appointed room features a bronze wet bar, 55-inch mirror television that doubles as functional art, Bose Sound Bar, and a large, exquisitely finished ensuite with double vanities, privacy switch glass and premium bathing amenities.

An extended mini bar offering, including a Eurocave eight-bottle wine fridge stocked with premium local and international drops, and 24-hour in suite dining menu heightens the luxury experience.”

“Of course, and most importantly, we remain committed to ensuring we provide guests with outstanding service, which is what we are renowned for,” concluded Savoff.
