What's Next

With guests already enjoying our refurbished hotel rooms, we’re on track to complete the initial transformation (including the refurbishment of our existing facilities and our new luxury six-star tower) by the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Until then, you can expect to see the improvements keep on coming, as we work towards our vision.

Groundbreaking Event


Sports Bar

Equipped with the latest technology, The Star’s highly anticipated new Sports Bar will immerse sports enthusiasts in the heart of the action. A large LED super screen and additional television screens will be fitted throughout the venue to create the ultimate multi-screen viewing experience, broadcasting all the unmissable matches, races and contests from every corner of the globe. Private booths will provide a VIP experience for Sports Bar guests and offer exclusive packages and superior viewing position.


Food Quarter

Directly adjacent to the Sports Bar, popular cafeteria-style eatery bite will close from September to undergo a significant transformation and unveil a new-look and name ahead of the festive season as The Star’s new Food Quarter. A fresh coastal palette and open plan design will provide a bright and contemporary area that serves as the ideal casual dining space for guests, while an extensive menu focusing on fresh, fast and efficient service will enhance the overall guest experience.  



J bar will continue to trade until late July, when it will close to undergo a full refurbishment. The new-look bar will adopt the same branding and design cues as its sister-venue at The Star Sydney and forms part of the property’s alignment to The Star brand. It is expected to be unveiled ahead of the festive season and will be branded Cherry.

Chinese restaurant

In the Atrium area, Chinese restaurant Zen will close in July to undergo a makeover. The restaurant will receive a fresh new look and furnishings to complement a revitalised menu that focuses on highlighting traditional flavours, ingredients and cooking styles from the different regions of China. Guests will be presented with unique yet familiar flavours as they’re invited on a culinary journey that challenges the way they view Chinese cuisine.  


An elegant lounge bar to be located on the gaming floor. The bar will feature similar design cues as its sister venue at The Star Sydney as is due to open later this year.


Canal Front Parkland Upgrade

The Star Entertainment Group has announced it will work with the City of Gold Coast Council to revitalise the parkland on the corner of the Gold Coast Highway and T E Peters Drive, Broadbeach – directly in front of the property.

The $1 million park redevelopment, which includes new lawn, a feature grassed mound, seating, pathways, recreational area and space for community stage will commence in December 2017 and reopen in February 2018, in time for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Prior to the redevelopment, the park will be utilised to support the construction of the new six-star tower.

New Hotel and Apartment Tower

In another exciting step for The Star Entertainment Group, the Queensland Government has confirmed approval to build a new 200-metre hotel and apartment tower on Broadbeach Island.

The new tower is the first of up to five within a future master plan for the property as part of a joint venture with Queen’s Wharf Brisbane partners Chow Tai Fook and Far East Consortium.

Subject to successful apartment pre-sales, construction of the new 700-key complex is expected to start in 2017. The hotel and apartment tower is in addition to the $345 million transformation currently underway at the property, and will take the property’s total transformation to a combined investment worth up to $850 million.
