The new Isoletto Prive events space will sit adjacent to the new pool club.

Travellers seeking self-contained apartment style accommodation in Southeast Queensland will now have The Star Gold Coast as a viable option after the property officially opened its Residences branded offering to visitors for stays from June 2022.

The Star Residences is a new venture for the hospitality and entertainment giant and debuts as part of its new 53-storey tower readying for its grand opening on Boxing Day 2021. The company’s initial complement will feature 422 one and two-bedroom apartments on the upper levels of the tower, which will also include the opening of The Dorsett Gold Coast – the Hong Kong brand’s maiden Australian presence.

The Star Residences will open with 422 self-contained apartments each featuring full kitchens.

Guests staying in The Star Residences will also have access to the newly launched Isoletto Pool Club, an exclusive leisure destination only open to guests staying within the complex, including neighbouring hotels The Star Grand, The Darling and The Dorsett. The space will be located on Level six and will offer sweeping views of the region’s hinterland and city. Guests of The Star Residences will also have access to a fitness centre, spa, sauna and private dining rooms on Level 20.

Facilities at the new Isoletto Pool Club will include a swimming pool, day beds and private cabanas available to rent along with a restaurant and bar serving a wide variety of drinks and light snacks. A 12-metre viewing deck overlooking Broadbeach will offer great views to guests. The pool itself will also feature a number of ‘wet lounges’ for guests to relax in without leaving the pool itself.

The venue will also be home to Isoletto Privé, a shining new events space adjacent to the pool deck which will be available for private and corporate occasions, events, weddings and other celebrations. The space includes an outdoor lawn and deck space and will play host to the hotel’s grand New Year’s Eve Party where guests can see off 2021 and embrace 2022.

The Star Gold Coast Chief Operating Officer, Jessica Mellor, said the third tower’s opening was the property’s biggest expansion since the opening of The Darling in 2018.

“We are delighted to debut our brand new one and two-bedroom apartments in the top levels of the 178m tower for short and long stays, alongside the 594 rooms we have at The Star Grand and the 56 opulent suites at The Darling,” Mellor said.

“Visitors to our expanding property will be spoilt for choice, and that includes for those who are looking for a unique rooftop space for weddings, corporate functions and other events.”

Nearby, work continues on a fourth tower at The Star Gold Coast, which will be even taller at 63 storeys and will boost The Star Residences’ portfolio by a further 457 apartments, due to open in 2024.
