The focal point of Riley is the stunning glass-encased tower where you will enjoy the Panoramic Sea Rooms with floor to ceiling windows and Rocco, Cairns highest rooftop bar, offering 270-degree panoramic views of Cairns and the Coral Sea.

The hotel offers a fantastic range of leisure facilities such as the 1,000+ square-metre swimming lagoon and manmade beach, a 24-hour fitness centre, complimentary bicycles to help you get around town and Eléme Day Spa.

The three on-site restaurants take you on a culinary journey like no other hotel whilst on your holiday in Cairns; Rocco serves Mediterranean fare with aromatic grilled meats and spice-accented vegetables, Paper Crane uses tropical Queensland’s fresh produce to create a modern Asian inspired menu and Greenfields embodies all aspects of healthy eating with sustainable fish, grass-fed meats and guilt-free desserts on the menu.
