GHD Woodhead was engaged by Toma Group to design a new 73 unit five-star resort development on the 1.344 hectare beach front site at Yorkeys Knob Beach to replace the former Yorkey’s Beach Bures.

The resort-style development consists of two to four bedroom units and features an array of five-star facilities, including health club and spa, decked bar and grill, penthouses with plunge pools, a unique feature ‘sit-in’ pool surrounded by a natural lagoon and high-tech features such as a soothing underwater music in the resort lap pool.

The design allows for the functionality and flexibility required for ‘twin key’ accommodation. The 3.5 acre development will retain and incorporate the existing native gardens and mature palms as part of the overall ecofriendly construction policy.

South Beach Resort and Spa offers designer residences and world-class facilities previously only seen in neighbouring beach suburbs at Port Douglas and Palm Cove.
