Review – Pullman Reef Hotel Casino

An excellent choice gaining a rating of 9.1 from guest reviews

Tropical North Queensland’s enchanting coral reefs, tropical rainforests, beautiful beaches and exotic wildlife have established Cairns as one of Australia’s most popular tourist and holiday destinations.

With its magnificent climate, relaxed lifestyle and world-class attractions and facilities, Pullman Reef Hotel Casino is ideally located for holidays, meetings, incentives and special events.

As the most prestigious accommodation and entertainment complex in Cairns, Pullman Reef Hotel Casino offers guests the choice of 4 restaurants, 4 bars, a Wildlife Dome, Nightclub, Boutique Casino and all elements necessary to check in and chill out.

Pullman Reef Hotel Casino has recently undergone an extensive $2.5 million refurbishment of Casino Sports Arena. The Casino Sports Arena contains a multitude of new and upgraded facilities, including what is tipped to be largest indoor LED screen in Queensland.

“Everyone is welcome at the Casino Sports Arena,” according to CEO Allan Tan.

The Casino Sports Arena, on Level Two of the complex, is one of the best indoor venues for watching life sport in comfort. The enormous LED screen is complemented by luxury cinemastyle seating. The Arena also contains multiple high-definition screens showing a wide range of sporting events, with a state-of-the-art sound system to enhance viewer enjoyment. A new TAB Mega Wall is the absolute latest in sports betting technology, and the feature is matched by upgraded Keno facilities with dedicated, comfortable seating.

“The Casino Sports Arena is a unique space, a unique entertainment venue,” said Mr Tan. “As well as the biggest indoor high-definition screen in the State, and the finest licensed TAB in Cairns, it offers gaming machines and table gaming. You can play a game of pool on our brand new tables if you wish, or simply relax in a lounge chair. It really does deliver an exciting mix of options. You can watch a movie, take in some live entertainment, watch major sporting events, and enjoy the international class casino facilities.”

The Casino Sports Arena also boasts new bar facilities, and visitors can enjoy a range of light snacks. Mr Tan said the Reef Casino was committed to the provision of the highest hospitality service standards in the state and this dedication is evident across the refurbishment.

The Casino Sports Arena was first opened in January, 1996. “It was time to bring it up to the next level,” Mr Tan explained. “It is important that we continue to invest in our product and our facilities. This refurbishment is part of our broader strategy to offer new and improved facilities across the complex.” The new Casino Sports Arena is the latest phase in a dedicated refurbishment of the Casino’s upper level. It follows on from the recently revealed multi-million dollar refurbishments to the complex’s conference and banqueting facilities.

“We have dramatically enhanced the conference and banqueting areas,” said Mr Tan. “We have fully renovated the Michaelmas Cay Ballroom, and the Reef Room. In addition, we have built a new space, called the Chill-Out Room. This is a fantastic resource, which can function as a retreat for conference speakers, so they can relax and prepare for their presentations. It also functions as a proper writers’ room – a reporters’ room – for media to be able to efficiently report on events being held. The enhanced conference and banqueting facilities are the result of significant recent investment. The early feedback has been very good. We see the new developments as a positive factor in securing the recent Destination Q Forum – a very major event organised by the LNP State Government.”

Accommodation rooms feature décor in a range of whites and beiges with plantation shutters and light timbers accentuates the feel and lifestyle of Tropical North Queensland. All 128 rooms are complete with a Jacuzzi style spa bath, private garden balcony and city or water views.
