The Star Hotel Gold Coast has named its luxury suite hotel The Darling, and its existing Broadbeach Island property The Star Grand.

The Darling at The Star Gold Coast is the second hotel in The Star Entertainment Group to adopt the boutique brand.

The Darling at The Star Sydney is an established and multi award winning hotel, and the first in New South Wales to be awarded a Forbes Five-Star rating – the most coveted recognition in the global luxury travel sector.

The Star General Manager of Hotels John Autelitano, said The Darling brand signifies the incredibly high standard of luxury and service that will be delivered at its new Gold Coast location.

“Properties awarded five stars from Forbes are considered the best hotels in the world and are synonymous with flawless service and facilities,” said Mr Autelitano.

“By adopting the same moniker here on the Gold Coast, guests can be assured they will receive an impeccable level of luxury accommodation and service.”

Gold Coast’s The Darling will feature 57 luxury suites from 70 to 328 square metres in size, with butler service and only the finest amenities and finishes.

New signature bars and restaurants and world-class gaming amenities will assist in driving broader domestic and international appeal.

Now identified as The Star Grand at The Star Gold Coast, the existing hotel has undergone an 18 month redevelopment to revitalise the property’s almost 600 rooms, one of the most comprehensive and highest value hotel refurbishments ever undertaken in Australia.

An opulent Penthouse, lavish suites boasting spacious outdoor terraces, Executive Deluxe Rooms, and Superior Deluxe Rooms are among the enhanced offering.

The Star Gold Coast’s current transformation heralds a new era for the property and forms part of crucial investment in the region ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
