The Star Gold Coast: Star treatment at The Star Grand

By , March 28, 2018

Opening in time for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, The Star Gold Coast is set to become one of the hot spots on the Gold Coast. Located in Broadbeach at the heart of the GC, The Star Gold Coast is the newly renovated entertainment complex from The Star Entertainment Group.


Featuring an array of award-winning restaurants, bars, stage shows and a 24 hour casino, the complex includes two hotels providing luxury accommodation on the Gold Coast: a fully renovated five-star hotel, The Star Grand, and a brand new six-star suite hotel, The Darling, coming soon.

The Star Grand

Set amongst seven acres of gardens and parklands, yet only minutes from bustling Broadbeach, The Star Grand offers a perfect location to stay and play on the Gold Coast. The existing hotel (formerly known as Jupiters Hotel and Casino) has been transformed with a $345 million refurbishment project, one of the biggest hotel refurbishment projects ever undertaken in Australia.

Rooms and suites

The 596 refurbished rooms are modern and contemporary, designed in neutral colours to create a relaxed, calming coastal atmosphere. Guests can enjoy sweeping views of either the Pacific coast or the Gold Coast hinterland. Opt for a Corner Balcony Deluxe Room to truly experience the Gold Coast, so you can step out onto your own balcony and take in that fresh coastal air.

For those who want the ultimate in Gold Coast accommodation, there’s a range of beautiful suites. You’d expect that The Ocean Terrace Suite naturally comes with a spacious sunny terrace, but you’ll also get your own private bar so you can gaze out to sea, cocktail in hand, all without having to leave your room. Cheers!

Bars and restaurants

As a non-stop entertainment venue, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dinner time. Ten food and beverage venues have been upgraded as part of the refurbishment, bringing the total number of dining options to 13.

Take your pick from a range of cuisines, including Italian, Chinese and Japanese, or for something more casual, try out the buffet, Food Quarter or garden restaurant. The most luxe option? Nineteen at The Star, the new signature venue on the 19th floor. This elegant rooftop restaurant and bar, complete with lap pool, showcases Australia’s finest produce and offers over 2000 international wine choices.

For something a little more casual, the Sports Bar has also just opened, right in time to screen all the action from the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. However it’s not only The Games that will be on show; the bar prides itself on being able to display more local, national and international sporting events than any other venue in Queensland. Featuring a 10 metre wide megascreen, 22 additional screens throughout the bar and a further 5 screens on the terrace, The Sports Bar is the ultimate sports viewing venue.

Pool and spa

After the highs and lows of watching all that sport you’ll be in need of some relaxation, and The Azure Spa and Fitness will not disappoint. With an ocean-inspired design, the spa features mother-of-pearl tiles, soft lighting and tropical plants to reflect the Gold Coast beach lifestyle.

There’s an extensive range of massages and spa treatments on offer using ESPA products, and a dedicated couples area for private treatments a la deux. Post-treatment you can unwind in a poolside cabana beside the new luxury swimming pool.
