To meet the anticipated summer influx, should the state’s borders remain open to domestic travel, the tourism city’s new pool club is aimed at supercharging The Star’s expanded leisure and entertainment offering.

The Isoletto Pool Club will be exclusive to all hotel guests within The Star’s trio of resort towers, including The Star Grand, The Darling and Dorsett Gold Coast.

The Isoletto Pool Club and Isoletto Privé events space forms a level six leisure deck with sweeping views from the ocean to Gold Coast hinterland in The Star’s newest $400 million, 53 storey hotel and apartments tower.

Already The Star is planning a border-opening and end of 2021 party at Isoletto Privé on New Year’s Eve.

It comes as bookings ‘go-live’ for The Star Residences, the first apartment accommodation to form part of the casino-resort island complex, with 422 apartments available from levels 21 to 53 of the tower. The 313-room Dorsett hotel, on the lower levels, is yet to officially open.

The Star Gold Coast Chief Operating Officer Jessica Mellor said the leisure deck and The Star Residences openings were the biggest expansion of the massive Gold Coast resort since The Darling opened in 2018.

“We are delighted to debut our brand new one and two-bedroom apartments in the top levels of the 178m tower for short and long stays, alongside the 594 rooms we have at The Star Grand and the 56 opulent suites at The Darling.

“Visitors to our expanding property will be spoilt for choice, and that includes for those who are looking for a unique rooftop space for weddings, corporate functions and other events,” she said.

Destination Gold Coast CEO Patricia O’Callaghan said Isoletto Pool Club and Isoletto Privé would also help bolster the city’s business events market.
“The Gold Coast’s convention and events footprint plays a crucial role in boosting our local economy and helps drive visitation from Monday to Friday as well as traditional off-peak periods,” O’Callaghan said.

“The Gold Coast tourism industry needs to diversify and expand as we head into 2022 and beyond – The Star is doing just that.”

The hotel and residential tower is being developed by The Star Entertainment Group with consortium partners, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium, a joint venture that is also developing the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct.

With the Isoletto leisure deck, The Star Residences and the Dorsett all but complete, the consortium is now focused on the construction of another $400 million 63-storey tower on the Gold Coast site, which is on track for completion in 2024.

The next tower, which will be the fourth hotel option for visitors to the Gold Coast casino resort. It will feature 210 five-star hotel rooms as well as 457 apartments for residents and guests called The Epsilon.

The Star’s $2 billion expanded masterplan approved in 2018 allowed for a total of five additional towers on the Broadbeach Island.
