The Fairmont Hotel in Australia’s famous Blue Mountains is to be revamped by its new owners.

It is expected that Accor will spend around $20 million to improve the accommodation as part of its rebranding.

The body of the hotel is really good, the location is good, but it just needs a lot of Botox,” explained Accor’s Asia Pacific’s general manager of communications, Peter Hook.

Accor are planning to re-open the hotel in April and it could appeal to travellers taking flights to Australia in summer.

New facilities will include an upgraded spa as well as new rooms and activities aimed at families and couples.

The Fairmont resort first opened in 1988 and the recent refurbishment is set to revive interest in the region once again.

In 2010, Accor reported strong performance with a four per cent increase inbound business and a rise in outbound operations of 36 per cent during the first 11 months of the year.

The Blue Mountains, located in New South Wales, covers an area of more than 4,000 square miles.
