SHANGRI-LA CAIRNS opened with an elegant,
multi-sensory experience

Buoyed by the experience of creating some of the most memorable celebrations in 5-star hotel history for the Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok, the Island Shangri-La Hotel, Hong Kong, Grand Hyatt Hotel, Taipei and the Sheraton Mirage Hotels on the Gold Coast and at Port Douglas, Robert Clark Creative produced yet another spectacular event for the opening of the Shangri-La Hotel in Cairns.

Encompassing the spirit of Shangri-La the guest experience was timeless, elegant and multi-sensory. A theme of perfection and enlightenment permeated the event. Outside the venue a traditional welcome to country was performed by the local Indigenous people. Street performers twirling fire sticks were a pre-cursor to an overhead pyrotechnic display.

Inside, exquisitely costumed musicians and theatrical performers captivated guests with serene and exotic entertainment while chefs presented a stand-up gourmet cocktail finger foods that were 'to die for'.
