First look at new JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa


The luxury hotel is on track to relaunch in December.

JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa has revealed a first look at the upcoming property, on track to open in Queensland in December 2020.

The $35 million redevelopment and rebrand of Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa will see the former tourism icon and family resort elevated to a 223-room luxury hotel.

JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa has collaborated with Australian design studio DBI, the architects and interior designers behind the existing Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, to transform the property.

Drawing inspiration from the coastal and hinterland surrounds, DBI aims to create a “serene retreat” enviroment.

“The theme of ‘nature’ was central to the hotel’s design when we first worked on the property in the 90s,” DBI director Susan Rossi.

“Revisiting the luxury resort today, we wanted to retain a focus on its striking location and views of the beach and hinterland, as well as respect the hotel’s original fabric in the most sustainable way.

“We therefore kept these elements core to its redesign, only this time presenting their influence in a more elevated and modern way, and through the refined lens of the JW Marriott brand.”

The new-look guestrooms and suites will feature natural timbers, fluted glass, locally sourced stone, plus a consistent palette of light blues and greys.

Once complete, JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa will offer 2,000 square metres of refreshed event space across 10 distinct spaces.

The upgraded JW Ballroom will provide planners with a 715-square-metre pillarless space with vehicle access, perfect for large-scale exhibitions and product launches.

“On completion, guests can not only expect elevated design, but also enhanced food and beverage options, warm and uplifting service, sensory programs dedicated to guest mindfulness and as always, a warm and welcoming team,” said JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa general manager Ravinder Dhesi.

“Our vision with this opening is to bring a new level of luxury to the Gold Coast and I have no doubt that this is going to be one of South Queensland’s finest resorts.”
