Australia’s First Kafnu To Open in Sydney
Kafnu Alexandria draws the new generation of creators into its community
Sydney, 13 February 2019 – International hospitality group Next Story Group marks the market entry of its genre-defining Kafnu brand into Australia with the opening of Kafnu Alexandria in Sydney. Kafnu Alexandria, set to open on Friday 1 March, is the Group’s fourth Kafnu property and it joins the growing international Kafnu network which has properties in Hong Kong, Taipei and Bengaluru.
All Kafnu members have access to all Kafnu properties around the world. This enables members to stay connected to the Kafnu community and continue to enjoy the benefits of engaging spaces, locally-relevant facilities and thoughtful amenities when they travel for work and leisure.
Kafnu takes its name from a hamlet in Himachal Pradesh in the northern part of India, where adventurers rejuvenate, refresh and reflect before their ascent towards the Himalayan summit. Combining the best elements of a shared work space, boutique hotel and social community, Kafnu properties are strategically-located and designed to foster co-creation, co-exploration and co-innovation. Kafnu aims to elevate the individual and collective potential of its members, who include creators and business owners, and to support them in their journey to success by providing the ideal environment for them to work, rest and socialise.
The 3,000-sqm Kafnu Alexandria is located next to the iconic The Grounds of Alexandria, within one of Sydney’s thriving creative and industrial hubs. Kafnu Alexandria is also just 5 minutes from Sydney Airport. Members enjoy 24/7 access to the unique and convenient facilities that span two levels. Multiple work space configurations and meetings rooms support productivity, while purpose-built media production and podcast studios offer added utility to tech-savvy members. There are also 16 luxuriously furnished guest rooms for a good night’s rest and a bespoke gin bar, where members can unwind and socialise. A virtual fitness studio ensures that members can stay on track with their fitness regimens, and as an added convenience, Kafnu membership also comes with GoGet car membership.
“We are excited to introduce the Kafnu brand to Australia,” said Simon Hall, General Manager of Kafnu Alexandria. “What sets Kafnu Alexandria apart is our positive community culture, which encourages members to share experiences, learn from one another, work together and inspire one another to achieve even more. We are building a vibrant community of hyphenates, entrepreneurs and trailblazers, and we will support their success through bespoke activities, including talks, workshops, seminars, and industry-specific events that facilitate networking and collaboration.”
