Capricorn Resort refreshed!

DSC_0535-Edit113 Resort Rooms overlooking twenty kilometers of stunning uninterrupted beach, two lagoon swimming pools, 24 hour reception, 20 Free activities, kids waterslide and playground, three restaurants, café and juice bar, two bars, Championship golf course, Day Spa, Conference and wedding facilities, all set on 22,000 acres of sub-tropical wetlands and bushland.

The Capricorn Resort continues to be our largest and most comprehensive resort on the Capricorn Coast and in the entire Southern Great Barrier Reef destination, despite a downsize a few months ago in preparation for a future major expansion.

Over the past few months, ALL 38 standard rooms, 68 superior rooms and 7 Capricorn Suites have received a soft refurbishment, Horse Riding tours on the beach and the Wetlands Eco Tour are available daily, the new Azure Day Spa is in a new location and the nearby Tsuruya Japanese restaurant continues to provide the best quality food in the country.

A new management team is passionate and determined to re-introduce Capricorn Resort to locals and visitors, with new Golf Pro Doug Gardner who started last week, joining  Food and Beverage Manager Andrew Spencer, Sales and Events Manager Natasha Heiniger, Reservations Manager Deb Hackney and Resort General Manager Ted Mitani.

An Activities Passport has been introduced for $200 per adult and $140 per child which includes ALL guided activity tours (including Wetlands, Horse Riding, Stand up paddleboards, Rainforest Canoe, Archery and much more!).

The new Azure Day Spa offers a comprehensive range of treatments including a massage menu, facials, spa packages, hand and feet spa treats, grooming and tanning for both women and men.

Pohaku Hot Stones really do melt away your stress, but what is impressive about the Azure Day Spa is the use of locally handmade “White Heather” all natural body products!

To have such high quality natural body products made in Yeppoon is an absolute credit to creator Celeste and her Mum Bev, who also have a retail shop in town and sell at the Rocky markets.  But what is more impressive is that Azure Day Spa beautician Deb Pitman has fully embraced these beautiful products and is allowing her clients to experience them first hand.  This partnership between locally made products and our tourism providers is to be absolutely commended.

Another example of locally made products being embraced by our tourism sector is specifically made scented candles from Karma Kandles (purchased at Coastal Funk in Yeppoon) created for Great Keppel Island Hideaway and Pumpkin Island.

Locally made pottery from Nob Creek Pottery, Byfield has also shared a long association with Capricorn Resort and the support between our operators, I think is what makes our communities so special!

It’s easy to take for granted what we have in our own backyard.  From the the outback to the reef, from sandstone gorges to sub-tropical islands, from secluded bush cabins to brand new beachfront units, our destination is absolutely stunning and we locals should never forget it.  In fact, we should all embrace it, promote it, and be so very proud of it!

Until next time…..
