Marriott sets new Benchmark After $20m Refurb

The award-winning Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa on the Gold Coast has reached a major milestone with the completion of its extensive $20 million refurbishment at an event attended by some of Queensland’s government, tourism and business leaders.

The resort was officially re-launched by the minister for tourism Jan Jarratt, Marriott International’s Asia Pacific president and managing director, Simon Cooper and director of EHP (Gold Coast) P/L, the owning company, Erhard Hotter.

Speaking at the re-launch ceremony, Mr Cooper said: “The fact that our partners EHP (Gold Coast) P/L have committed $20 million to the refurbishment of the property speaks volumes for their confidence in the Gold Coast brand. Marriott International is a global company and has great commitment to this hotel and the future success of the Gold Coast.”

Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa first launched more than 19 years ago and is a tourism icon of the Gold Coast with an international reputation. The luxurious 28 level resort features 329 rooms and is located on a serene riverfront site just a few minutes from the heart of Surfers Paradise. All rooms offer breathtaking views of the Gold Coast Hinterland, Surfers Paradise skyline or Pacific Ocean.

Mr Hotter said the owners had a vision to take the Marriott to a new level of style and sophistication. “The refurbishment works that have been undertaken are a strong vote of confidence in the Gold Coast, tourism in Australia and the property itself which is now right up at the top of the five star rankings nationally,” he said.

The hotel’s extensive makeover has included an upgrade to all guest rooms including the opulent Presidential Suite, lobby area, lagoon pool area, front entry, dedicated events floor and a new all-day dining interactive restaurant, Citrique.

The refurbishment has also included an upgrade to all function rooms on the dedicated events floor. The state-of-the-art floor is set aside exclusively for the conference, incentive, weddings and special events market.

The resort has also positioned itself as a clear leader in dining, featuring the recently opened Citrique interactive restaurant – with four different dining zones and eight international culinary concepts, it has already set a new benchmark in dining for the Gold Coast. The property also features a new ‘grab-and-go’ deli called Java Plus, a luxurious lobby lounge bar, Japanese Sake Bar, Benihana Japanese Steakhouse , world-class Lattouf Hair and Day Spa, gymnasium and a new wifi lounge area located on the ground floor for guests to enjoy Internet access 24 hours a day. Wifi is also available throughout the rest of the resort.
