Newly renovated Capricorn Coast Motel has paradise in the ‘palm’ of their hands

Cleverly aligning their brand with a classic symbol depicting a sun-drenched, flop and drop holiday – the tropical palm tree – Kinka Palms Motel is pleased to announce the completion of their recent renovations which have incorporated modern, boutique-style finishes to their spacious rooms and facilities.

Located opposite Kinka Beach on the Scenic Highway between Yeppoon and Emu Park in the middle of the unfiltered Capricorn Coast, the classy Motel boasts 13 spacious, quality-designed spaces, all only stone’s throw away from quiet, tranquil waters of Keppel Bay.

After purchasing Kinka Palms Motel in 2021, Louise and Jeremy Van Der Vorst from Yeppoon, have spent the last two years implementing their vision into the property, excited to now see plans come to fruition, and their guests praising the unique flair and simplified luxury of the seaside accommodation.

“Kinka Palms Motel has been an extremely rewarding project for our family to tackle and we are thrilled by the positive feedback received from our visitors who are impressed by the simple touches we have included to make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible,” Louise said.

“Our 1 twin, 8 queen and 3 family rooms are perfect for couples, families, and solo travellers, either looking for a mainland base on their way to Great Keppel Island, or those searching for a quieter ‘escape the crowds’ holiday that still offers nearby attractions.”

“All rooms have self-contained kitchenette, modern bathrooms, smart TV’s, air conditioning and free WIFI, and the pool and barbeque lounge is perfect for sun downers,” Louise said.

The Van Der Vorst’s eye for detail and palm tree décor is displayed cleverly throughout the property, mirroring the real palms staying tall across the front lawns.

There is plenty of onsite private parking for guests, and space to park the boat or jet ski.

With Beef24 just around the corner, Kinka Palms Motel is the ideal ‘end of day’ for those wishing to retreat from the hustle and bustle.

“After finalising our renovations, we have opened our bookings for Beef24 and welcome a family or corporate group booking for the entire Motel,” Louise said.

“A five-night minimum stay will apply, providing more time for visitors to explore our islands, beautiful beaches, and other award-winning, notable attractions across the Capricorn Coast.”

Capricorn Enterprise Tourism Marketing Manager, Krista Brown congratulated Louise, Jeremy, and extended family for their work in enhancing the property and providing a quality experience for visitors to the Capricorn Coast region.

“Kinka Palms has come back into fashion, and truly depicts the classic family holiday scene,” Krista said.

“From light, fresh, welcoming spaces, to modern, clean and practical facilities, Kinka Palms Motel is a wonderful addition to our local tourism offerings, increasing visitation and length of stay for guests.”
