RACV Noosa Resort has won the inaugural People’s Choice Award for accommodation and a gold award for self-contained accommodation at the 2017 Queensland Tourism Awards.
Resort manager Darren McClenaghan says the People’s Choice Award, based solely on votes from guests, was unexpected.
"There's one thing having people have a good time at your resort but then for them to go and vote for us was a huge surprise," he says.
"Apparently we got more than 4000 votes.”
The Noosa Resort team are no strangers to the awards stage this year, being named Best Hotel in Queensland in the Hotels Combined Recognition of Excellence Awards for 2017, and receiving Silver Certification from EarthCheck for its environmental credentials.
