Mon Komo Hotel, Redcliffe
**Write up from SEPTEMBER 2012 edition of AUSTRALIAN HOTELIER **
“Being bold and creating a point of difference in a tough environment is a great starting point,” says Newberry. “The outstanding fit-out from Brand & Slater Architects, drawing influence from luxury Caribbean Resorts, is a breath of fresh air in Redcliffe. The Caribbean influence conjures thoughts of friendliness, tranquillity and relaxation coupled with fun, energy and excitement and exquisite water views for our customers. Mon Komo has already forged a reputation as a new regional food destination, for its unique Caribbean-inspired cuisine, created by the talented head chef, Simon Pettigrew.
“Entertainment is another key element in success. A combination of local and international acts, including a performance by the legendary Drifters at the opening, has put us on the map as an entertainment destination. It’s not just about the music, it’s about bringing the hospitality experience to life through a combination of music, ambience, promotions and events.
