New Mercure makes a splash in Cairns

Tropical North Queensland is the coastal holiday hotspot gift that keeps on giving

Accor Live Limitless members have yet another property to enjoy in the heart of Tropical North Queensland.

Mercure Cairns has opened its doors following a multi-million dollar upgrade and rebrand of Ibis Styles Cairns.

The total hotel makeover brings a new level of style to the accommodation landscape in the city, while keeping to Queensland’s quintessential relaxed coastal lifestyle.

Accor Pacific Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Derry, said the exciting Mercure Cairns opening will appeal to a broad range of travellers.

“Holding appeal for both leisure and business travellers, Mercure Cairns has been tailored to suit travellers who value quality accommodation, incredible guest experiences, great dining and leading design,” Ms Derry said.

The location

Surrounded and inspired by nature, the hotel is situated in the slow-beating heart of Cairns. Guests can enjoy an easy meander to the iconic Cairns esplanade.

A stay here will also place you within striking distance of the effervescent Night Markets and food court, where many tropical delights beckon.

The rooms

From a standard queen to an executive king room, Mercure Cairns houses 75 spacious guest rooms.

Brought to life by Australian designer, Scott Carver, the rooms are inspired by nature in a way that brings a breeze of fresh coastal aesthetics throughout design elements – we’re talking light timber, wave murals and pops of ocean-blue.

Locally-sourced handmade elements and quality touches evoke a laid-back ambience for guests looking to soak up the tropical lifestyle.

Beyond the rooms

A similar beachy vibe flows through the hotel lobby, restaurant and outdoor dining and lounge areas, which act as comfortable meeting places to work, indulge and relax.

On the ground floor of the hotel, The Stanley is where guests can find dining options, as well as a fresh breakfast buffet.

A modern Australian selection of fresh and local produce is on the menu throughout the day. Think: refined dining meets coastal casual.

By night the restaurant’s spaces transform into a place to wind down with a drink, perhaps a tropical cocktail – lychee anyone?


Mercure Cairns is celebrating with a special opening offer. You can book now via Accor’s website to stay from $139.92 per night – a saving of 12 per cent. 

With 340 plus properties, Accor is the largest hotel operator in Australia. Mercure’s 55 properties make it the largest and fastest growing midscale hotel brand in the country.
