Located in the heart of Cairns cultural precinct and just a stone throw for the Esplanade boardwalk and lagoon, Bailey is adorned with Australian artwork and features 255 spacious guest rooms and residences, three restaurants and bars, meeting spaces for up to 150 people, a rooftop mezzanine plunge pool and a 24-hour fitness centre.
Bailey is the child of Crystalbrook Collection, an independent Australian tourism and hospitality company with a focus on innovation and sustainability.
Each of the group’s six hotels and resorts draw inspiration from interiors, art, design, music, food and technology to create distinct and tailored experiences for its guests.
Bailey and the arts
Bailey’s carefully curated personality is modern, innovative and with a true appreciation for all the arts. Bailey chooses the path less travelled. The type of character you’d find at the local farmer’s market or exploring the latest museum exhibition. Bailey loves originality, individuality and attention to detail.
Bailey sees art as a powerful tool to break down barriers, provoke constructive thought, encourage empathy and question our own prejudices. Creating a new cultural hub, Bailey will play host to an ever-evolving array of artforms across music, dance, painting, sculpture, literature and film to make art accessible, inclusive and empowering.
The hotel features dedicated art spaces in the public areas as well as celebrating a different artist on each of the 12 floors. As a Cairns local, the hotel may have a soft spot for arts from the region but those from further afield will also be celebrated.
Bailey will also host an ongoing art programme covering everything from evening workshops to poetry recitals, and dance performances; no area of the hotel is off limits. At launch, Bailey will partner with Mainie Australia, Cairns Indigenous Art Fair and TAFE to showcase the works of local artists and students with a programme of opening festivities.
