Queensland’s renowned and historic Belvedere Hotel on picturesque Bramble Bay announces a grand reopening after a multimillion-dollar redevelopment “years in the planning”.

Well positioned midway between the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, the Hotel has serviced travellers and the local community since 1901. It celebrates the Sunshine State’s outdoor lifestyle with sweeping water views and a welcoming atmosphere.

Embracing this rich history while “navigating towards a vibrant future” ‘The Bel’ now reintroduces itself after a transformative investment of well over $10 million, as the perfect central meeting point for over one thousand friends and families, across a plethora of dining and entertainment options.

“Our redevelopment has been meticulously planned and executed to enhance and preserve historic elements while elevating the experience for today’s patrons,” explains Chris Allison, Lewis Land Group’s Queensland regional manager.

The revised Belvedere boasts revitalised indoor dining spaces with outdoor shaded terraces and a dog-friendly outdoor dining area. There is a brand-new public bar and state-of-the-art gaming facilities, and a new dining and bar area on the upper level offering breathtaking sunset views.

Guests can enjoy the refreshed outdoor Pavilion bar and bistro, and new pizzeria and gelato bar, bringing an Italian twist.

An all-new menu is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering a range from steaks, burgers, and salads, and specialty seafood section, crowned by the seafood platter, for two or four people, which prompts the ringing of bells throughout the pub.

The renovation process employed 200 individuals, and core staff were retained and paid throughout the closure, which reflects the group’s commitment to its people.

Seeing 20k patrons through the doors and serving nearly 800 parmys and around 5k schooners each week, Lewis reports a “surge in trade” in the days since reopening, and that the venue’s commitment to being an “inclusive, joyous, family-friendly destination” is a key component of parent company Lewis Land Group’s portfolio.

The group is reportedly reviewing additional development opportunities on adjacent land, bringing the possibility of future further enhancement of the party-happy Hotel.

“The Belvedere has always been synonymous with celebration,” says Alison.

“Our new venue encourages and allows for both bookings and walk-in trade at any time of the day, ensuring that we’re perpetually ready to host and toast to your special moments.”
