The Star’s luxe new hotel ‘The Darling’ is opening this month!

After three years in the making, The Star Gold Coast’s exquisite new hotel, The Darling, will officially open this month!

Located at the front of the iconic Broadbeach Island property, the lavish new 17-storey hotel forms the centrepiece of The Star Gold Coast’s landmark transformation and will officially open its doors on March 22.

The luxe new hotel features premium resort facilities and world-class gaming amenities as well as a breathtaking rooftop restaurant and bar (Nineteen at The Star) which wraps around a gravity-defying infinity pool.


The Star Entertainment Group Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg says The Darling will offer superior luxury and service for both leisure and business travellers.

“The Darling has been designed as a stand-alone hotel with its own arrival experience. It has a distinct, boutique design and eclectic feel, while boasting the unique spirit and a stunning coastal location for which the Gold Coast is already renowned,” Mr Hogg said.

He also revealed future guests will soon be able to book online for their stay.

“Every element of the hotel is to a standard of luxury the Gold Coast has yet to experience. We’re also looking forward later this month to opening online bookings for stays at The Darling post the Commonwealth Games,” he said.

But wait… that’s not all. A highly anticipated new Sports Bar will also open in the coming weeks when the existing building connects to The Darling, all in time for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Designed by internationally renowned architects Steelman Partners, the luxurious suites in The Darling were delivered by multi-disciplinary firm DBI Design and Australian construction company, Probuild.
