Hilton Surfers Paradise unveils new lobby, bar and an unusual exhibition

Guests can expect a whole new arrival experience at the Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel & Residences from today, with the property now boasting a brand new lobby, bar and an exhibition gallery.

The hotel underwent a $9 million revamp during the coronavirus pandemic, which general manager Fiona Pryde said created a sense of optimism for the team.

“The entire ground floor renovation including the new lobby, Ms Margot’s Bar & Eats and the Exhibition Gallery has been built by local Gold Coast builders, it’s been great to support local family business at this time,” Ms Pryde said.


The transformed lobby has been designed to be a relaxed, coastal oasis that embodies the Gold Coast, while the brand new Ms Margot’s Bar & Eats has been curated for intimate dining experiences from early until late.

Ms Pryde said the bar is proudly named after regular Ms Margot, who has been visiting daily for a decade for her morning coffee and breakfast.

“We wanted to create a beautiful space where guests and locals will keep coming back to, just like Ms Margot, to eat, drink and make connections,” Ms Pryde added.

The new lobby also features a gallery space, which from today is showcasing The Real Human Anatomy Exhibition.

The exhibition really gets under the skin, featuring real human bodies preserved by the process of plastination.

Entry to the Exhibition is $20 per family with part of the proceeds going to Stem Cell research.

The refurbishments have also seen the addition of nine guest rooms, a brand new executive lounge, and the addition of three new meeting spaces.
