Big Wins For Iconic Magnums

Synonymous with quaint and comfortable perfection, Magnums Accommodation Airlie Beach took out three massive awards at the 2023 Whitsunday Tourism Awards, last Friday night.

Committed to providing a budget traveller with a special experience, Magnums Accommodation Airlie Beach, has become a calling card to all travellers and locals alike.

“Magnums is Airlie Beach’s original accommodation provider,” explained Magnums Accommodation Executive Chairperson, Elizabeth Hackett.

“Magnums Accommodation has been owned and operated by a group of truly committed and experienced tourism advocates. We place great importance on customer service and leaving a legacy for future generations. We are strongly committed to our environment and our community.”

With an extensive history in Airlie Beach, it is no wonder that Magnums came home with three massive awards last weekend.

Coming out top for the Whitsunday Business Awards, Magnums is officially the 2023 Whitsunday Business of the Year as well as Most Outstanding Whitsunday Booking Service.

The high-quality accommodation provider also received a gold gong at the Tourism Awards, having been crowned gold winner in 3 to 3.5 Star Accommodation category.

“The team have worked so hard post-COVID to reinvent ourselves and to be recognised as benchmark operators amongst so many other industry ambassadors. It was just so rewarding!” said Elizabeth.

“Life is a journey, it is our responsibility to ensure that this journey is improved for all who work and visit us at Magnums Airlie Beach”.

“At Magnums, we understand that we can do the best job in the world but without a strong RTO, a committed CEO and Board and a local Council who understands the importance of tourism, we would simply not be here.”
