Novotel
Brisbane Airport
Novotel Brisbane Airport Hotel’s management
says they “don’t swim and tell” but keen-eyed
celebrity spotters tell us that pop princess Jessica
Mauboy has stayed here. And while the multi-
talented popster is a big attraction, the pool on
the roof also draws plenty of stares from visitors,
especially when they notice it overhangs the
edge of the building by one and a half metres,
six stories up. Glass windows along the side of
the pool also provide plenty of entertainment
for swimmers and spectators. The 24-metre
2-lane lap pool is heated to 28 degrees, and
there’s a 24-hour gym and a sauna adjacent.
Emporium Hotel,
Fortitude Valley
It’s Brisbane’s most awarded boutique hotel and
perfect for celebrity spotting as this is where they
often spend the night…model Jennifer Hawkins,
movie star Carrie Mulligan (
The Great Gatsby
),
sexy celebrity chef Manu Feildel (
My Kitchen
Rules)
and Olympic swimmer Leisel Jones have
all stayed here. But you won’t be able to spot
them in their cossies unless you also are staying at
the hotel – the sleek 15-metre rooftop saltwater
lap pool is strictly for overnight guests. The pool
is heated to 29 degrees, lined with Italian mosaic
tiles, there’s a custom-created poolside menu
and an adjoining gym and sauna.
Quay West Suites,
Brisbane city
This five-star all-suite hotel of one and two
bedroom apartments and penthouse provides
access to a glam Roman-style pool oasis across
the road from the City Botanic Gardens where
privacy is the key. Lying on this sandstone
pool deck you could easily think you’re at
a resort on Lake Como, but with all city
convenience on your doorstep. The 15-metre.
pool is heated to 24 degrees. There are
sun lounges and shade umbrellas on the
Mediterranean-style sandstone sundeck for
the exclusive use of guests, a fully equipped
gymnasium adjacent and a hot tub.
