Stunning picturesque views will soon await overnight visitors to Berri, an iconic South Australian tourism destination.
The all new Berri Hotel Riverview Apartments – 30 in total – are on schedule to open for reservations in December 2021, and will enjoy pride of place overlooking Berri’s beautiful riverfront.
As a sneak-peak of what is in store for visitors, South Australian architects Studio Nine have also released a series of new renders.
As well as stunning Murray River views, these contemporary apartments will feature luxury bedrooms, beautifully appointed living areas and versatile entertaining spaces.
This $7.4 million development will be part of Berri Hotel, one of South Australia’s leading community owned hotels. Constructed by local builder HandBuilt, the project has been supported through the Commonwealth Government’s Murray Darling Basin Grant Scheme ($500,000) and the South Australian Government’s Regional Growth Fund ($1.5 million).
Paul Stewart, Chair of Berri Hotel Group, commented on the sense of anticipation for the new apartments.
“The level of interest in the new Berri Hotel Riverview Apartments, from across tourism and business sectors, as well as from the local community, has been immense. As you will see from the designs, we have taken care with to present the very best in modern comforts whilst embracing our amazing location. We can’t wait to launch the finished apartments in the coming months.”
Ben Patten, General Manager at Destination Riverland, welcomed the imminent arrival of more quality tourism accommodation for the region.
“More tourism related development for Berri and its surrounds is certainly an opportunity for the Riverland region. We are finding that interest in the region is very high at the moment, and adding more high-quality accommodation like this will play a big role in converting interest to bookings. I am also excited about the increased capacity offered by these apartments in terms of attracting more special event groups to the region. These renders certainly look like the interiors will match the stunning outlook.”
Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said the plans will help create a stronger tourism outcome for the Riverland region.
“The tourism sector is a key economic driver in the Riverland contributing more than $180million to South Australia’s visitor economy,” Mr Whetstone said.
“The new addition to the tourism accommodation offering is much needed for visitors to the Riverland at a time we see domestic travel is growing and now more important than ever.”
“Not only will the development drive investment in our region but helps the economy by providing opportunities for new construction jobs and will support ongoing jobs once complete.”
“A combination of tourist and business visitors, as well as more rooms, means that we’ll see more people visiting the area, and potentially for longer periods.”
“The sneak peek into the renders certainly looks impressive and a project the State Government is proud to have played a part in.”
