Saints alive! St.Regis to land on the Gold Coast


Australia is to get its first hotel that is part of the ritzy St. Regis brand - but not until 2027.

Marriott International has signed a management agreement with property development company Gurner to bring the St. Regis brand to the Gold Coast.

“This signing of The St. Regis Gold Coast Resort in Australia is momentous for Marriott International, and a wonderful advancement for the destination," said said Richard Crawford, vice president Hotel Development, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific for Marriott International.

"The St. Regis brand promises a vanguard spirit (wow!) steeped in history and tradition, and is synonymous with global luxury. We appreciate Gurner Group’s confidence in selecting St. Regis as the centrepiece of its world-class mixed-use development.

"Their well-earned reputation for excellence and vision for the Gold Coast aligns exceptionally well with the very high standards we set for every St. Regis hotel around the world and we look forward to bringing to life an iteration of the brand that is modern, aspirational, and befits the lifestyle and energy of the Gold Coast.”

So Mr Crawford is impressed then.

The hotel is set to be part of the first tower in the $1.7 billion La Pelago project - a lifestyle resort and destination within the Budds Beach precinct.

La Pelago will feature 12,000 square meters of lifestyle amenities including luxury residential residences, The St. Regis Gold Coast Resort (render above), and hospitality and retail facilities.

The new-build resort is anticipated to feature around 185 guest rooms and suites that will offer either ocean or hinterland views.

The St. Regis Gold Coast Resort will be the fourth Marriott International property on the Gold Coast when it opens, adding to the company’s existing Queensland portfolio of the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa, Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort Gold Coast, W Brisbane, Brisbane Marriott Hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane, The Westin Brisbane, Courtyard by Marriott South Bank Brisbane, and The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast, which is expected to open in 2026.

Marriott International currently operates 39 hotels across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific, with 26 hotels in Australia.

St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has 49 luxury hotels and resorts around the world. The first St. Regis hotel opened in New York City over a century ago.
