CLG, Moda propose revival of historic Philip Island hotel

Hospitality team CLG and developers Moda are trying to find scheduling approvals for the redevelopment of Phillip Island’s legendary Isle of Wight Resort into a vibrant hotel, eating and retail precinct.

Created by Alexander and Co, the proposed ideas consist of a circa 160-space hotel, floor floor F&B amenities like a signature cafe, a significant-scale occasion place, state-of-the-art wellness centre and a pool deck.

The 8600sqm internet site, which was purchased in January 2021 by Moda Phillip Island Pty, was property to Phillip Island’s very first resort The Isle of Wight which opened in 1870 ahead of currently being wrecked by a hearth in 1925 and yet again, in 2010.

Moda Handling Director Ed Farquharson mentioned the lodging and retail offering could offer a significant economic increase to the area.

“The Isle of Wight Hotel was an icon of Cowes for quite a few decades,” she claimed.

“We’re hunting ahead to capturing the nostalgia and spirit of the first resort and bringing it back to lifestyle with new power for a entire new technology.

“Along with returning The Isle of Wight Pub, our proposed growth seeks to incorporate resort lodging, a eating precinct overlooking the beach front, in depth occasion amenities, and a laneway retail precinct established to include things like a wellness centre and other speciality retailers, offering an estimated AU$55-$76 million increase to the community economic climate each year.”

CLG is hopeful of the new hotel opening in 2025 opening need to planning be authorized.

“We’re thrilled to do the job with the group and council in bringing about a new era for tourism on the island, and elevating the bar for what individuals can anticipate from accommodation, eating, and enjoyment in regional Victoria,” claimed CLG Main Government Officer, Tim Fitzgerald.

“We foresee the progress will deliver in excess of 150 new work options in the area.”
