Rydges Hotel South Bank Adventure packages

  • Written by Katherine Stevenson



Be you a culinary adventurer, a High Tea taker, a fan of spectacular stage shows, a big city sightseer, one who prefers a weekend of suite decadence, a bed and breakfast fan or even a fitness enthusiast keen for a clean food weekend…. Rydges Hotel South Bank has created a series of bespoke packages to celebrate Spring and Summer in the Queensland capital like never before.

 

Having just completed one of the country’s largest all-room redesign projects and a $30million investment creating stunning new spaces and experiences in the hotel including the acclaimed Bacchus Restaurant, Soleil Pool Bar and Podium Level, Rydges Hotel South Bank is ready to celebrate in style. Ten staycation packages have been unveiled by the hotel for Spring and Summer 23016/17. 

 

“Brisbane is about to experience one of the busiest Spring Summer periods on record – with Kooza by Cirque du Soleil and Matilda both opening within a week of each other, as well as the Cricket and Tennis and then in February the Global Tens Rugby as well as a raft of festive celebrations, international stars visiting and much more. This means both visitors and guests will be looking for great stay options, and it’s why we have created 10 different packages to sort,” said Rydges Hotel South Bank General Manager Callum Kennedy.  “People are looking for different options when they stay in hotels, they may be foodies, or fitness fans; they may be a family of four, or a couple wanting a decadent weekend retreat, or visitors to the city to see the great shows we have playing… we have listened and created this series of packages.”
