The Star Gold Coast Will Soon Be Home to a Sky-High Pool Club and Party Deck with Sweeping Views

From mid-December, it'll be pairing swims, cocktails and cabanas on the sixth level of the hotel's resort.

As all those towering buildings dotted against the skyline demonstrate, the Gold Coast isn't short on places to stay — including when you're a Brisbanite heading slightly south for the kind of getaway that's not a staycation, but doesn't involve venturing too far from home. That said, from mid-December, your choice of where to slumber might revolve around a key question: do you want to pair your holiday with swims, cocktails and cabana hangs at a pool club?

The Star Gold Coast is launching two new additions: Isoletto Pool Club, which is where all those dips and drinks come in; and Isoletto Privé, an events space with a deck tailor-made for parties. They'll be located within the resort, on the sixth level of its new $400 million, 53-storey hotel and apartment tower — and will be open to both residents and hotel guests.

A coast holiday it is, then — depending on your budget, that is. The sky-high Isoletto Pool Club will feature a 12-metre-long pool that boasts views over to Broadbeach, daybeds scattered around the deck and wet lounges in the pool itself.

There'll also be a restaurant and lounge, with spritzes, other cocktails and light dishes heroing seasonal produce on the menu. You'll be able to sit indoors or outside and, if you've snagged a cabana or daybed, your drinks will be brought to you.

Sporting a fitout by local architecture and interior design practice Plus Architecture — think: lemon and tangerine colours that nod to the Gold Coast surroundings — the pool club will be joined by Isoletto Privé, which'll be used to host parties, events and weddings. It features a lawn, deck and terrace, and also comes with views both out over the shoreline and over to the hinterland.

The new spaces are launching in time with Queensland's border reopening to double-vaccinated interstate visitors without requiring a quarantine or self-isolation stint.

As for the bookings for the new tower, it's now accepting reservations for stays in its 422 apartments — which'll host short-term stays, long-term rentals and permanent residents — from June 2022.

Isoletto Pool Club and Isoletto Privé events space will open at The Star Gold Coast, 1 Casino Drive, Broadbeach, from mid-December. For further information, head to The Star's website.
