It’s one of the strongest signs yet of a tourism fightback since the global pandemic, The Star Gold Coast is introducing stunning new apartment-style accommodation to its iconic Broadbeach property for the very first time with the opening of The Star Residences – Tower 1.
Located in the upper floors of the precinct’s new $400 million 53-storey tower, The Star Residences comprise of 422 modern one and two-bedroom apartments available for short-term stays, long-term rentals, and permanent residency.
Immaculately designed by acclaimed local architect Cottee Parker, the apartments have been created to meet the needs of independent travellers wanting the practical comforts of home with the convenience of a world-class resort.
Chief Operating Officer of The Star Gold Coast Jessica Mellor says of the launch, “the opening of The Star Residences marks a huge milestone in the expansion of The Star Gold Coast and introduces an entirely new world of possibilities for leisure and corporate travellers looking to make the most of our coastal lifestyle.
“Whether you’re a family looking for a longer-term holiday destination or travelling to the Gold Coast for business, our new serviced apartments provide the best of both worlds – the convenience of home amenities, plus a full suite of bars, restaurants and entertainment on your doorstep.
“We’ve already seen fantastic pick-up of the new apartment-style offering with our first short-term guests checking into their apartments today, and a strong pipeline of bookings. Equally exciting is the concept that we will welcome our first permanent residents to the Island who will live like they’re on holidays year-round.”
Each spacious, light-filled apartment offers sweeping views of the stunning Gold Coast cityscape, hinterland, or the iconic Broadbeach coastline, and features a fully functioning kitchen, laundry facilities, high-quality wifi and living room to make guests feel right at home. A neutral colour palette and sleek, modern furnishing complete the look, to create a space that is both calm and welcoming, yet chic.
For those travelling for work, a selection of apartments includes a dedicated study to create the ideal beachside “working from home” setup, while those looking to get away with young kids can easily access cots, high chairs and rollaway beds upon request.
Alongside access to The Star’s range of award-winning restaurants, bars, and leisure spaces, guests of The Star Residences can also enjoy a dedicated private recreation deck on Level 20. A private haven, the Level 20 recreation deck offers guests a resort-style pool, complete with sun lounges and a spa to take in views of the city or relax with a great book.
A sauna, steam room, fully equipped gym, and yoga and pilates studio invites guests to recharge and revitalise. While for those looking to truly experience the Australian lifestyle, casual eating areas, outdoor cooking facilities and private dining rooms for hire make communal dining a breeze.
The Star Residences takes the current accommodation options at The Star Gold Coast, including those at The Star Grand, The Darling, and the Dorsett Gold Coast hotels, to over 1,100 rooms. As part of its $2 billion masterplan and continued investment into the local tourism industry, the resort is also expecting to open a second $400 million 63-storey tower featuring 457 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments in 2024.
