Accor, and sbe, international hospitality groups that develops, manages and operates hotels throughout the globe today announced Australia’s first Mondrian hotel and branded residences will be built at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
The dual tower development is being developed in collaboration with Chris and Letitia Vitale’s Vitale Projects.
It will be constructed on a 4,037m2 beachfront site on the corner of First Avenue and The Esplanade Burleigh Heads. With 80 meters of ocean frontage, guests and residents will have direct access to the Burleigh Heads Beach.
Mondrian Gold Coast will feature two distinct towers to separate the private residences, comprised of 89 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 fitness centre, spa, restaurants, and swimming pools, fronting the beach and Burleigh Headland National Park.
This will be sbe’s first hotel property in Australia after the recent openings of Hyde Paradiso lounge in Surfers Paradise and Hyde Perth, further expanding the brand 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.
Chadi Farhat, Chief Operating Officer, sbe said, “we are very excited to announce the opening of our first Mondrian hotel and residences in Australia with our partner Accor. 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.”
Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath said, “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.”
“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.”
