The Dorsett edges closer

Travel Daily - - News -

THE en­try of The Dorsett brand in Aus­tralia is a step closer with the STAR Gold Coast break­ing ground on the $400m devel­op­ment which will house the brand’s first ho­tel in Aus­tralia.

The 4.5 star Dorsett ho­tel will of­fer more than 300 rooms and be the sec­ond big­gest in the Broad­beach re­gion be­hind only The Star Grand.

It will be lo­cated in a 53-storey mixed use tower in Broad­beach, which is be­ing de­vel­oped by Des­ti­na­tion Gold Coast Con­sor­tium – a joint ven­ture be­tween The Star Entertainm­ent Group and its Hong Kong- based part­ners Chow Tai Fook En­ter­prises & Far East Con­sor­tium.

The Dorsett is ex­pected to open in early 2022 and its 316 ho­tel rooms will spread across the tower’s lower lev­els.

The Star Entertainm­ent Group chair­man John O’Neill said the com­mit­ment showed con­fi­dence in the fu­ture of the des­ti­na­tion and its po­ten­tial to be­come “an even more es­tab­lished pri­mary lo­ca­tion for in­trastate, in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors”.

“We are de­lighted to fur­ther en­hance the tourism ap­peal of the Gold Coast and south-east Queens­land more gen­er­ally with this lat­est joint ven­ture devel­op­ment.”

“The in­tro­duc­tion of a Dorsett ho­tel will bring with it in­creased aware­ness in the global mar­ket, es­pe­cially in Asia, where Dorsett Hos­pi­tal­ity In­ter­na­tional owns and op­er­ates the ma­jor­ity of its 54 ho­tels,” he added.

The Dorsett will be the sec­ond lux­ury ho­tel to be de­vel­oped on the Gold Coast since 2011, along­side The STAR’s The Dar­ling, which opened ear­lier this year.
