When the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Port Douglas opened in October 1987, it was considered one of the finest hotels in Australia, if not the world. It set a standard for accommodation and conferences. Well nearly 34 years later and they are still kicking goals and maintaining a quality that many other hotels can only dream of.

They’ve won many awards over the years but the latest is particularly pleasing to Steve Molnar, General Manager of Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort. They have just won the ‘Best Meeting and Events Venue’ at the Queensland Hotel Association’s Awards for Excellence. 

The category recognises venues that offer a seamless meetings and events experience for meeting planners and clients, with a strong focus on quality service, facilities and catering packages. This, combined with the resort’s easily accessible location, only an hour north of Cairns along one of Australia’s most stunning coastal drives, sets the scene for what is yet to come. Once at the resort, delegates experience a tropical paradise that sometimes locals take for granted. 

Highly sought after

This category is highly coveted by the hospitality industry in this state and so Mr Molnar is partically chuffed about receiving the gong on behalf of his team. Paul Makin sat down with the likable executive to get his thoughts on the big win.
