Accor, a world-leading hospitality group, and sbe, the leading international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning brands, has announced Australia’s first Mondrian hotel and branded residences will be built at the iconic Burleigh Heads Beachfront on the Gold Coast.
This coastal Queensland location will be sbe’s first hotel property in Australia after the celebrated recent openings of Hyde Paradiso lounge in Surfers Paradise and Hyde Perth, further expanding the brand’s luxury lifestyle experiences in the Asia Pacific. Mondrian Gold Coast is one of nine new Mondrian properties that sbe plans to open globally by 2022, with six more to be announced. It follows the company’s recent opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, and the announcement of Mondrian Shoreditch London set to open in 2021.
Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath said, “The expansion of the first-ever Mondrian into Australia with its location at Burleigh Heads reflects Accor’s commitment to developing innovative, lifestyle-oriented hotels alongside our partner, sbe. With the Mondrian brand, sbe creates destinations within the destination, bringing together regional authenticity with sophisticated design, creative programming and a lively bar and restaurant scene. Mondrian Gold Coast will be the embodiment of this philosophy: providing residents and guests with elevated hospitality experiences that match the beauty and vibrancy of Australia’s Gold Coast region.”
Vitale Projects Director Chris Vitale said, “It has been our long-term vision to develop a premier beachfront destination and residential address along the Gold Coast. sbe leads the industry in creating unique lifestyle hospitality experiences and this partnership allows us to bring the services, style, and strengths of the Mondrian brand to guests and residents of our community, setting a whole new benchmark for service and hospitality on the Gold Coast. Hotel-branded residences are gaining steam around the world, and with very few true luxury branded residences in Australia, prestige property buyers at Mondrian Gold Coast will have the rare opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a private residence with full access to elevated hotel amenities and services.”
