Marriott International is to bring a third group property to Australia’s Gold Coast with the signing of a new Ritz-Carlton hotel.

The agreement with Australian property developers Pelligra Group and Giannarelli Group will see The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast opening in 2026.

Waterfront jewel

The new luxury property will serve as an integral component of a $480 million new waterfront development at Mariner’s Cove, a city at the prestigious northern end of the Gold Coast.

It is expected to feature 150 guestrooms and suites, including a planned 275-sq-m Ritz-Carlton Suite.

Eating and meeting

Dining establishments will include a signature restaurant featuring semi-opened kitchens, a café, and three bars including a Lobby Lounge, destination bar, and poolside bar. An outdoor rooftop pool, fitness centre and signature Ritz-Carlton Spa will deliver wellness experiences to leisure guests.

Meetings and events provision comprises 587 sq m of function space, including a 512-sq-m ballroom and 261-sq-m of outdoor pre-function space.

Investor confidence

Richard Crawford, vice president of hotel development, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific, Marriott International, said: “Marriott International is recognised as the global leader in the upper upscale and luxury segments. This signing with Pelligra Group and Giannarelli Group is a profound indication of strong investor confidence, buoyed by a resurgent affluent domestic travel market. Once opened, the resort expects to set a new benchmark for luxury on Australia’s Gold Coast with the property’s enviable waterfront location.”

Ross Pelligra, chairman at Pelligra Group, commented: “We are exceptionally excited to embark on this journey with Marriott International to bring The Ritz-Carlton brand to the Gold Coast. A luxury hotel development like this will draw in more tourism spending from across the globe and fuel the local economy. The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast, is set to be an iconic landmark not only for the Gold Coast, but for Australia’s hospitality sector.”

Elevated energy

Dion Giannarelli, CEO at Giannarelli Group, stated: “The Gold Coast has always been Australia’s most prestigious playground, and once completed, The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast, anticipates on elevating the city’s tourism pedigree to an entirely new level of energy and quality, redefining Main Beach and The Spit. With the attention to detail and highest quality finishes we are applying to the project, we are confident The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast, will be one of the world’s finest luxury resorts.”

Sean Hunt, area vice president for Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific, Marriott International, added: “The Ritz-Carlton, Gold Coast, will mark the third Marriott International property on the Gold Coast, joining our existing hotels JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa and Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort Gold Coast. It is a momentous signing, not only for our growing Gold Coast portfolio but for the expansion of the Ritz-Carlton brand in Australia, first relaunched with The Ritz-Carlton, Perth in 2019, and with The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne slated to open its doors in early 2023.”

Other Ritz-Carltons slated for Australia include The Ritz-Carlton Brisbane a conversion project located in a treasury building where Echo’s casino is housed. The 200-key site is due to open in Q3 2023. Plus the 250-room Ritz-Carlton Sydney will feature a signature restaurant, bars and other dining facilities and luxury hotel amenities.
