The Star Gold Coast has unveiled the names of the two new hotel brands for its Broadbeach, Queensland property – headed by luxury hotel The Darling.

The Darling at The Star Gold Coast, currently under construction, is the second hotel in The Star Entertainment Group to adopt the boutique brand. The Darling at The Star Sydney opened in 2011 and this year became the first hotel in New South Wales to be awarded a Forbes Five-Star rating.

The new luxury suite hotel will feature 57 luxury suites ranging from 70 to 328 square meters in size when it opens in 2018, with the largest featuring two king bedrooms, balconies from 80 square meters, a billiard room, karaoke room, private gym and butler service.

It will also boast a high-end restaurant on the top floor of the 17-story structure as well as a lounge bar overlooking an infinity pool perched 67 meters above the ground and five meters beyond the side of the tower.

With the new hotel taking center stage, the property’s existing hotel will be rebranded as The Star Grand at The Star Gold Coast following an 18-month redevelopment to revitalize its 596 rooms. It includes an opulent Penthouse, lavish suites boasting spacious outdoor terraces and deluxe rooms that Star Entertainment Group says are “designed to align to the Gold Coast’s luxurious coastal lifestyle.”

Among The Star Grand’s new facilities will be eight new food and beverage offerings plus a Food Quarter and Sports Bar set to open in the coming months once the existing building connects to The Darling. The Star Grand brand will also be adopted at The Star Sydney, with the newly refurbished five-star Astral Tower to rebrand to The Star Grand at a later date.
