From boutique retreat to city chic – the evolution of Australia’s premier luxury accommodation brand.

Australia’s leading luxury accommodation brand, Peppers, will open its first CBD property in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley in early 2015 to be known as Peppers Dunmore Brisbane.

The new CBD development signifies the evolution of the Peppers brand which started as a small group of boutique retreats some 27 years ago, growing to include larger coastal resorts over the last 10 years before its first foray into metropolitan style accommodation with the opening of Peppers Broadbeach in 2010.  The new Brisbane development is the first CBD location for Peppers with plans for future properties in Australian and New Zealand CBDs over the next two years.

“This is a historic project for Peppers and the first of many CBD properties we have planned for Australia and New Zealand,” said Bob East, CEO of Mantra Group which manages the Peppers accommodation network.

“The move into CBD locations is a result of continued feedback from customers seeking out the Peppers experience they’ve enjoyed at a resort destination and we are pleased to now offer this in Brisbane’s vibrant Fortitude Valley precinct.”

“The Peppers name is synonymous with superb quality; exceptional dining experiences and unique product offerings – we are very particular about aligning the Peppers name and The Dunmore is a worthy choice to be the first CBD Peppers property.”

The Peppers Dunmore Brisbane will provide an extra 100 studio, one and two bedroom suite apartments to the constrained Brisbane market and provide a superb 5 star boutique accommodation option. Long stay corporate guests resulting from the Queensland mining resources boom as well as leisure guests will enjoy the superb location between the Fortitude Valley and New Farm precincts.

Located within a few minutes walk to the Brisbane CBD the new development will combine a high level corporate lifestyle with the trendy urban elements of the Valley.

Apartments will offer contemporary style living areas with generous balconies to maximise the extensive views to the city and across the Valley.  Premium quality European appliances and high speed Broadband internet are included throughout the apartments.

Recreation and Lifestyle Facilities on offer will include a skyline gymnasium overlooking the 10 metre recreation pool on level 7; Rooftop bar and conference centre; Business centre and meeting facilities; and signature restaurants and bar at ground level.

The Peppers Dunmore Brisbane is being developed and built by Brisbane based Vintage Property Group (VPG).
