Shimmering milestone on Gold Coast’s newest 4.5 star hotel

A milestone moment for one of the Gold Coast’s most shimmering new projects.

Workers have almost finished installing the glazed windows on the 13 storey facade of the Dorsett hotel, on levels 7-19 of The Star Gold Coast.

It’s taken over two years to reach this point and construction teams are now pouring the slab for the 24th storey of the 53 level mixed-use tower.


The $400 million tower is being developed by Destination Gold Coast Consortium and will be the first Dorsett hotel in Australia.

Dorsett Hotel International President Winnie Chiu said they have 56 properties worldwide and another 19 in development and she is looking forward to bringing the Hong Kong brand down under.

“Our 4.5-star Dorsett hotel at The Star Gold Coast, featuring 313 hotel rooms, will be known for the same unique values that our brand is known for – a convenient location, engaging with the community, and providing unique and distinctive local experiences at extremely good value for money.”

Along with a custom chandelier installation in the main lobby which will use kinetic lighting and reflective materials to depict lapping waves, the interior design is aimed at blending with the coastline and hinterland views from Broadbeach Island.

Destination Gold Coast Consortium Project Director Jaime Cali said the opening of the Dorsett would increase the number of hotel rooms and suites on the island to nearly 1000.

“Through the Dorsett, The Star Gold Coast will offer a different experience for guests – complementing both its five-star hotel, The Star Grand, and its luxury suite hotel, The Darling.”

The opening of the Dorsett is set down for 2022 and is part of a $2+ billion masterplan for the area.
