Big 4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort to reopen

Big 4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort to reopen

After months laying mostly vacant, BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort is set to re-open on June 13 for travellers and holiday makers as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

In just one week since announcing bookings were open, there’s been unprecedented demand and a huge influx in bookings placed. It’s evident many Queenslanders will holiday here this year.

BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort first opened in November 2018 and within a year of operation became the highest-selling BIG4 Park in Australia.

Making waves in the holiday park industry from day one, the resort has become one of Moreton Bay’s biggest tourism destinations. But after less than 2 years of operation, the resort was forced to shut its doors and wait for the coronavirus storm to blow over.

WE'RE BACK!

We're back and taking bookings 😍 From June 13th you can sink into our lounge chairs, climb on our playground, slide down our slide, roast marshmallows around our firepit and hit a few balls on our tennis court! Go on your post-isolation vacation between June 13th and August 31st so you can stay longer for less! STAY 3, PAY 2 between 13th June - 31st August 😱 Email us via info@sphr.com.au or call 3450 0732 to book! 🎬 Lastnight Media

Feeling the love

With the falling economy and new restrictions only allowing non-essential travel within 250km, many Australians have pledged their loyalty to the national #holidayherethisyear campaign.

Owner of BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort and Comiskey Group Director Rob Comiskey is pleased to see so much support from his fellow Australians.

“It’s great to see so many Aussies band together to support one another by eating at local cafes and restaurants. Given our huge spike in bookings, it seems that people are also keen to get out of the house and support local accommodation too. Last week, we had the most amount of bookings placed out of all Queensland’s BIG4 holiday parks,” Rob says.

Behind the resort is the Comiskey Group which also owns Eatons Hill Hotel, Sandstone Point Hotel, Beachmere Hotel and Samford Hotel. The group has been hugely impacted by COVID-19 given its hospitality industry focus.

“It has been a very rough few months for everyone. We lost over 85% of our revenue and stood down over 400 staff. The resort being able to open soon has been our saving grace and that’s thanks to the support of our guests,” Rob says.

Big plans on the horizon

While business was at a standstill, the Comiskey Group was not.

“During this quiet time, we have been planning for the future and looking for ways to improve our visitors’ experience with plans to expand the holiday resort adding 22 more villas and safari tents as well as even more exciting new facilities,” Rob explains.

“We are currently looking at adding a pump track, flying fox, spa and more to our list of world-class facilities. During this time, management has also been going through guest suggestions for implementation where possible; we have even just ordered some really lush daybeds for around the pool thanks to a guest suggestion.

I look forward to opening soon with a CovidSafe Management Plan in place and finalising plans for the all-new facilities.”

And we're back! We missed you 😍 In case you missed it, the government announced that accommodation will be open for...
