Marriott has confirmed plans to rebrand the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa as the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa in December, after giving it a glitzy $35 million makeover.
The Australian design studio, DBI, the original architects and interior designers behind the existing property, have been appointed to reimagine the 223-room resort and to elevate it to JW Marriott’s standards.
The resort’s public spaces will be redefined, but will retain the emblematic features of the original tropical design, which worked to create a connection to the surrounding lush hinterland landscape.
“We are excited to announce the debut of our flagship JW Marriott brand here in Australia with the opening of JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa,” said Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International.
“The opening will signal the continued expansion of our luxury footprint in Australia as we continue to see strong demand within the luxury travel segment here.”

“The JW Marriott brand, with its distinctive luxury philosophy, will resonate with these travellers, who seek exceptional, thoughtfully-crafted services and experiences.”
New and improved
The resort will feature six F&B outlets, including two feature restaurants, a lobby lounge and bar, pool bar, a new Japanese whisky bar, and a signature JW Marketplace.
The resort’s highly celebrated outdoor swimming pools, offering a variety of depths and activations, including the saltwater lagoon featuring over 300 tropical fish, lie at the heart of the JW Marriott.
The JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa will have 2,000 square metres of refreshed function space featuring ten scalable meeting spaces for different event requirements. The upgraded pillarless 715 square metre JW Ballroom has vehicle access, geared for large-scale exhibitions and product launches, whilst a junior ballroom will provide 276 square metres of flexible space for creative meetings and events.
“We are absolutely delighted to be embarking on the transformation of our tropical paradise oasis to offer genuine luxury experiences here on the golden beaches of the Gold Coast,”
Ravinder Dhesi, General Manager, JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa.
The resort will continue to welcome guests during its transformation.
