After 12 months of planning and construction, Kyko Group’s $150 million Queensland hotel development, Mon Komo was unveiled on Wednesday night to more than 250 VIPs and guests.

The new hotel on Redcliffe’s beachfront is a Caribbean-themed entertainment and dining venue primed to become Queensland’s next landmark pub.

On offer were Caribbean-infused cocktails and an array of authentic Caribbean-inspired food by acclaimed head chef, Simon Pettigrew.

In June developers Kyko Group appointed Catalyst Hospitality Management to ensure the new venue optimised its position.

“We have been working tirelessly over the past few months, to develop the hotel into a standout destination for Redcliffe locals and the wider Brisbane community,” said Catalyst director, Chris Gardner.

“The entire venue has incredible views out to Moreton Island, which makes it even more spectacular for special occasions. Its hero feature is the extensive outdoor area facing the ocean, where people can dine, have cocktails and take in the magnificent water views.”

Opening night saw fireworks and special performances by The Drifters, Foster & Jackson and calypso band Jahbutu, with tropical event theming created by Brisbane stylist company, The Prop House.

Mon Komo Hotel features a bistro-style restaurant, sports and lounge bar, and function and conference facilities on the way to position Redcliffe as an ideal destination for combining business and leisure.

The complex also comprises 184 luxury residential and short stay apartments, a host of facilities including an integrated dining and retail precinct, six boutique commercial office spaces, a grand porte cochere entrance, gymnasiums, pools and lush Caribbean-inspired, sub-tropical gardens.
