Hamo gears up for Chinese New Year

By Mark Beale

HAMILTON Island is gearing up to welcome what’s predicted to be a record number of Chinese visitors for the impending Chinese New Year, from February 19-25.

The island’s chief executive officer Glenn Bourke said room nights sold were already up by 34 per cent compared to 2014 with more bookings expected.

“We are delighted to see Chinese visitor numbers increase again this year and we are always looking at ways to ensure our guests feel welcome and enjoy their time on island,” he said.

Mr Bourke said over the past couple of years there had been “some significant changes” to the island’s operations to accommodate Chinese guests.

“But this year we are stepping it up further and I’m excited to announce that the Hamilton Island App will now also be available in Chinese.”

The newly translated version of the app will be launched in time for Chinese New Year and will include information about the festivities planned. These include a kids fun zone with lantern and fan making, a watermelon carving demonstration, street style food stalls with dumplings, noodles and pecking duck, a magic show with Joshua Huang, one of Australia’s most well-known magicians, plus a Lion Dancer show and spectacular fireworks display.
