Glimpse of Jupiters’ smart luxury suites

ONE of the Glitter Strip’s most iconic hotels is moving into the future.

Jupiters Hotel & Casino has given us a sneak peak at the first stage of the refurbished rooms, set to be open for bookings from October, with smart technology and luxury finishes are at the forefront of the designs.

Jupiters’ parent company, Echo Entertainment Group, is handing over $345 million on the transformation of the Broadbeach landmark, first opened in the mid-80s.

The project to revitalise the property’s almost 600 rooms, together with some initial work already completed around the pool and hotel façade, will cost around $75m. 

“The extensive renovation will see all rooms completely revitalised to offer both business and leisure travellers a world-class experience,” Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said. 

Internationally renowned architects Steelman Partners are behind the styling of the rooms, which are designed to create a sophisticated and modern feel that will complement the Gold Coast’s relaxed beachside lifestyle.

The rooms will also include state-of-the-art lighting and technology, iPad connectivity and smart televisions, while offering guests the very best in terms of luxury finishes, including marble and stone sourced from Italy and Turkey, rain-head showers and luxurious new bedding. 

In addition to the works being undertaken in the existing hotel, Mr Hogg said the company is also working through the final stages of a process to select a contractor for construction of the proposed 17-storey, luxury six-star suite tower at the front of the property.   

The entire project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
