Marriott has confirmed plans to rebrand the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa as the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa in December, following a $35 million renovation.
The Australian design studio, DBI, the original architects and interior designers behind the existing property, have been appointed to reimagine the 223-room resort and to elevate it to JW Marriott’s standards.
The resort will feature six F&B outlets, including two feature restaurants, a lobby lounge and bar, pool bar, a new Japanese whisky bar and a signature JW Marketplace.
The resort’s highly celebrated outdoor swimming pools, offering a variety of depths and activations, including the saltwater lagoon featuring over 300 tropical fish, lie at the heart of the JW Marriott.
The JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa will have 2,000 square metres of refreshed function space featuring ten scalable meeting spaces for different event requirements. The upgraded pillarless 715 square metre JW Ballroom fhas vehicle access, geared for large-scale exhibitions and product launches, whilst a junior ballroom will provide 276 square metres of flexible space for creative meetings and events.
Westin Hotels and Resorts is heading west with the announcement of a new location at Margaret River, that will become the second location in Western Australia.
