Gold Coast golf resort’s “major renaissance”

Prestige golf resort the Mercure Gold Coast Resort, is set for a major renaissance following the completion of a dramatic multimillion dollar hotel upgrade this month.

The extensive redesign and upgrade is the first major renovation at the property since it opened its doors almost 17 years ago.

The hotel’s general manager, Jamie O’Donnell, who has meticulously overseen the rejuvenation project, says the enhancements reinforce Mercure Gold Coast Resort’s strong position in driving a new generation of sports tourism and business for the region, beyond the beach and hinterland.

The dramatic transformation of the Mercure Gold Coast Resort was completed in consultation with one of the country’s leading hotel refurbishment interior design teams In Design International, led by designer Penny del Castillo. The redesign extends to major central facilities and guest rooms, and soft furnishings and AV in the conference space.

Renovations in rooms and suites include all furnishings and fittings, and for a contemporary and relaxed resort vibe, boast a modern colour palette with hints of en trend orange in trimmed scatter cushions and designer, deck-chair style fabrics adorning bedheads. The use of natural timber with local Queensland-style horizontal groove and slim line furnishings adds a laid-back yet sophisticated appeal for guests.

Other additions include a private dining room overlooking the pool, and new walls and banquette seating in the restaurant to make way for a broader variety of dining and catering options – a departure from the previous open plan style restaurant, and created in response to demand from conference groups and local guests looking for more intimate options.

Opened as the Radisson Gold Coast Resort in December 1997 and rebranded by the Australia’s largest hotel operator, Accor, in November 2012, the Mercure Gold Coast Resort is ideally situated between the Gold Coast’s legendary beaches and the rainforest retreats of Springbrook and Mt Tamborine.
