Sophisticated hotel on the waterfront


Facilities & services

  • 311 rooms and suites
  • Three restaurants
  • Outdoor swimming pool
  • Spa

Opened in November 2018, the Riley is an elegant city hotel ideally located on the waterfront in the heart of Cairns.

There are 311 rooms and suites with views of either the city skyline or the Coral Sea. Some of the suites feature private balconies, the perfect place to enjoy the views with a morning coffee or glass of wine at the end of the day.

Eating is a real treat at Riley. Savour the flavours of the Mediterranean at Rocco, or head east and enjoy modern Asian cuisine at Paper Crane. The fresh healthy menu at Greenfields is perfect for those looking to keep it light – think salads, grain bowls and cold pressed juices.

There is an outdoor swimming pool and a spa for when guests want to simply relax and unwind.
