JEWEL RE­VEALS EVENT PLANS

Business Events News - - Front Page -

THE Gold Coast’s big­gest in­fra­struc­ture project in decades, The Jewel, is set to trans­form the city’s event and ac­com­mo­da­tion of­fer­ings.

With a prime beach­front lo­ca­tion, the $1 bil­lion com­plex will fea­ture three tow­ers in­spired by the quartz crys­tals dis­cov­ered in the re­gion, as well as exclusive res­i­dences and a five-star lux­ury ho­tel.

Project own­ers, Yuhu Group Aus­tralia, are be­hind the ven­ture and will re­tain own­er­ship of the Jewel’s ho­tel, ball­room and con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties.

“Our aim is to pro­vide pre­mium spa­ces where our res­i­dents, ho­tel guests and vis­i­tors will thor­oughly en­joy spend­ing their time,” said Yuhu Group di­rec­tor, Jimmy Huang.

“We want the Jewel to be a ma­jor com­mu­nity as­set and the ball­room and other pub­lic spa­ces, in­clud­ing bars, din­ing op­tions and re­tail of­fer­ings will all help un­der­pin this.”

Lo­cated at the edge of the beach­front, the 700m2 Jewel ball­room will cater for up to 800 peo­ple, fea­tur­ing a three­storey ceil­ing height and a sep­a­rate smaller func­tion room.

Huang also said the Jewel ball­room would be an “amaz­ing space” that would set a new stan­dard on the Gold Coast.

“It will be a cen­tre­piece of the Jewel with the grand scale to cater for sig­nif­i­cant events in a won­der­ful lo­ca­tion over­look­ing the ocean,” he said.

The com­plex will also in­cor­po­rate a 633m2 busi­ness cen­tre with five meet­ing rooms of vary­ing sizes and equip­ment to cater for busi­ness needs.

Post busi­ness, guests can en­joy the beach-fac­ing out­door re­sort pool and swim-up bar; all-day din­ing hall with a range of cui­sine within clear view of the wa­ter; out­door din­ing, seat­ing and lounge ar­eas with lush pool-side gar­dens; a lobby bar and fea­ture bar with an area of 450m2; plus an in­door pool & gym, health and well­ness cen­tre; and re­tail spa­ces.

A com­mu­nity cel­e­bra­tion is planned for Aug 2018 to mark the Jewel tow­ers reach­ing their max height.

Project com­ple­tion is planned by mid 2019.
