JW Marriott hotels are rebranding the iconic Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa into the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa following a $35 million refurbish.
Set to open in December this year, let’s hope we might be allowed over the border to experience this “new standard of luxury”.
There will be a total of 223 rooms with ocean or hinterland views, six food and beverage venues featuring a Japanese whisky bar.
The resort’s main restaurant will feature a new interactive show kitchen, placing fresh local produce at the heart of its daily menu. Forming part of Citrique, JW Marketplace is the hotel’s café and in-house provedore, serving freshly ground coffees, local produce and healthy and tasty grab-and-go bites. Misono, the resort’s teppanyaki restaurant, will expand to incorporate an ‘avenue’ of new Japanese dining experiences including an intimate Izakaya, tearoom and sushi bar.
Chapter & Verse will transform into an indoor-outdoor lounge and bar experience connecting the resort property with the external lagoons and swimming area – a tranquil lounge by day and a sophisticated craft cocktail bar in the evening.
The resort’s highly celebrated outdoor swimming pools, offering a variety of depths and activations, including the saltwater lagoon featuring over 300 tropical fish, is the heart of the JW Marriott. The Pool Bar will offer poolside dining options and a lounge area for refreshing cocktails, light bites and family snacks.
The resort will continue to welcome guests during the ongoing upgrading of the resort.
