Sensational views of the Gold Coast shoreline and hinterland, decadent cocktails and a pool that practically begs you to grab a daybed, relax and order a bottle of bubbly. That’s Isoletto – The Star Gold Coast’s new luxury pool club – in a nutshell. And it’s destined to become the coast’s hottest venue and most exclusive venue.
Why exclusive? Because not everyone will be on the guest list.
Located on level six of the new $400 million, 53-storey hotel and apartments tower, it’s only open for guests staying within The Star’s resort complex . That includes The Star Grand, The Darling, and the newly-opened Dorsett Gold Coast.
It features a stunning pool with 12-metre-long viewing wall overlooking Broadbeach, plue sleek daybeds around the deck and ‘wet lounges’ built into the pool itself.
A restaurant and lounge space with indoor and outdoor seating is also on hand to serve up a range of light dishes, with a big focus on local and seasonal produce.
Dishes range from freshly rolled sushi, to locally sourced oysters with mignonette dressing, and California Prawn Cocktail with avocado and dill. A crispy fried snapper burger and grilled chicken BLT lead the sustainable mains menu. For a cooling treat, there are also nourish bowls, acai bowls and artisanal gelato flavours to choose from.
Fancy a drink? Isoletto boasts a colourful cocktail menu, with options like the Giulietta, a sweet and sour concoction with gin, Aperol and Pavan grape and orange blossom liqueur, and the Green Cove with white rum, orange bitters and mint.
There’s also a wide selection of craft and premium beers available too, as well as a thoughtful wine list featuring exquisite local and international drops.
The club was designed by Plus Architecture, who also created the gorgeous Uncle Su Cantonese Restaurant that opened at The Star in October. The warm and inviting palette features pops of bright lemon and tangerine in a nod to the energy of the Gold Coast.
The opening is a sign of confidence in Queensland’s economic resurgence, with the launch also coinciding with the opening of the Isoletto Privé event spaces and a first look at The Star Residences in the upper levels of the tower.
“This is an exciting time and a first for The Star, with another phase of our $2 billion extended masterplan about to come to life,” says The Star Gold Coast Chief Operating Officer Jessica Mellor said. “It’s the biggest expansion of our iconic 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”.
The Star Residences will comprise of 422 short- and long-stay one and two-bedroom apartments, each with fully functioning kitchens and high-end furnishings and fixtures. Alongside access to Isoletto Pool Club, guests will also be able to enjoy additional resort facilities on Level 20 including a spa, gym, sauna, and private dining rooms.
The Star has also introduced new Digital Gift Cards, which can be used across all three properties — The Star Sydney, The Star Gold Coast and Treasury Brisbane. The Digital Gift Cards are available in $50-2000 denominations and can be used to book luxury hotel rooms, enjoy spa treatments and wine and dine at The Star’s impressive restaurants.
Bookings for The Residences are open now for stays and rentals from June 2022.
