Mondrian Gold Coast will be constructed on an expansive 43,453 square foot (4037sqm) beachfront site on the corner of First Avenue and The Esplanade Burleigh Heads in one of the Gold Coast’s most desirable neighborhoods.
With 262 feet (80 meters) of ocean frontage, guests and residents will have direct access to the signature white sands and world-famous surfs of Burleigh Heads Beach.
Mondrian Gold Coast will feature two distinct towers to separate the private residences, comprised of 89 luxury residential apartments, from the hotel, which will encompass 208 guestrooms.
The buildings will be united by a three-level podium that acts as the building’s common space and hub of activity, including a state-of-the-art fitness centre, spa, restaurants, and swimming pools, all overlooking the world-famous beach and Burleigh Headland National Park.
This coastal Queensland location will be sbe’s first hotel property in Australia after the celebrated recent openings of Hyde Paradiso lounge in Surfers Paradise and Hyde Perth, further expanding the brand’s luxury lifestyle experiences in the Asia Pacific.
Mondrian Gold Coast is one of nine new Mondrian properties that sbe plans to open globally by 2022, with six more to be announced. It follows the company’s recent opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, and the announcement of Mondrian Shoreditch London set to open in 2021.
“The expansion of the first-ever Mondrian into Australia with its location at Burleigh Heads reflects Accor’s commitment to developing innovative, lifestyle-oriented hotels alongside our partner, sbe,” said Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath.
“With the Mondrian brand, sbe creates destinations within the destination, bringing together regional authenticity with sophisticated design, creative programming and a lively bar and restaurant scene.
“Mondrian Gold Coast will be the embodiment of this philosophy: providing residents and guests with elevated hospitality experiences that match the beauty and vibrancy of Australia’s Gold Coast region,” he said.
The debut of the Mondrian brand to Australia reflects the continued strategic expansion of the brand’s international footprint in partnership with Accor, which will include soon-to-be announced Mondrian properties in the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, Puerto Rico, Thailand, and Vietnam. By 2022, sbe plans to open 50 new hotels internationally, of which nine will fall under the iconic Mondrian brand.
“We are very excited to announce the opening of our first Mondrian hotel and residences in Australia with our partner Accor,” said sbe Chief Operating Officer, Chadi Farhat.
“With five open properties, nine in development, and six more to be announced, Mondrian has established itself as one of the strongest brands in the sbe lifestyle portfolio, showing staying power for the long-term.
“The Gold Coast has grown into one of Australia’s leading travel destinations and the opening of Mondrian Gold Coast is the next step in our strategic global expansion for the Mondrian brand, selecting communities at the heart of the most exciting cultural destinations in the world.”
Studio Carter, an internationally acclaimed hospitality design consultant, has been commissioned to oversee the interior design for Mondrian Gold Coast.
