American River Resort - Kangaroo Island

Located in American River (40 mins from the airport and 30 mins from the ferry) and currently operating as a Mercure 4 star hotel of 38 keys, it is one of the largest and best regarded accommodation facilities on the island, with a long history as an iconic tourist destination. The developers and owners commissioned architects to create a plan to increase room stock to 73 keys which would increase room inventory to 111 keys. A builder has costed the project and its various options for development (stage 1 and stage 2).

There is a real opportunity for a developer to create a hotel on Kangaroo Island. A significant parcel of adjoining waterfront land has now been included in the development site that not only provides far greater flexibility in design but also very significantly increases the combined total room stock to 112 keys after Stage 1 development and circa 164 keys after stage 2.

This enhanced design creates an even more prestigious and dominating frontage to the ocean bay waters of American River while positioning the property as the no 1 destination on Kangaroo Island.
