Dorsett Gold Coast will feature 313 guest rooms and will welcome guests from 26 December.

Hong Kong hotel brand Dorsett Hospitality International will make its grand debut in Australia on December 26 with the opening date revealed for Dorsett Gold Coast.

The 313-room property sits within the multi-tower labyrinth that is The Star Gold Coast’s expanding profile on Broadbeach Island. It will occupy part of the first new tower that has been underway at the site since 2019, with an estate of 423 residential apartments managed by The Star Residences sitting directly above.

Dorsett Gold Coast will be fronted by a six-storey podium which will house the guest reception and a variety of dining and retail offerings.

A boardwalk will link the hotel to The Star Grand property in the complex’s flagship building next door. Guest facilities will include a variety of bars and restaurants, a theatre and flexible conference and meeting rooms.

Dorsett Hospitality International President and Executive Director, Winnie Chiu, said she was excited to be in the final stages of preparing the hotel for its grand opening in just over a month.

“Dorsett Gold Coast will be collaborating very closely with the local community to tailor our signature fun and dynamic Stay Vibrant experience for the Gold Coast,” Chiu said.

The first tower open for business will also feature The Dorsett Hotel.

“Dorsett Hospitality International hopes to bring a fresh, new energy and positive impacts for future guests, teams and local communities.”

Construction at Dorsett Gold Coast reached its crescendo in September, with the property’s General Manager announced just beforehand. The brand has declared its intentions for Australia in a big way, revealing further additions to the network in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne are in the pipeline for the years to come.

The Star Gold Coast General Manager Hotels and Residences, Mark Hodge, said the organisation was thrilled to welcome Dorsett to the Gold Coast.

“[We] are very excited that world recognised brand Dorsett has chosen the Gold Coast and us here at The Star Gold Coast to launch its first hotel in Australia,” Hodge said.

“We are looking confidently ahead to a long-awaited return to normal operations and will be working closely with Dorsett, as they get ready to welcome first guests to the hotel.”

The hotel is expected to release images inside the guest rooms in the weeks leading up to opening day.
