Marriott to open a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Australia’s Gold Coast in 2026

Marriott has announced that it will open a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Australia’s Gold Coast in 2026. This will be the third Ritz-Carlton property in Australia after the one in Perth and Melbourne.

The Ritz-Carlton Gold Coast, scheduled to open in 2026, will feature 150 guest rooms and suites and will form part of wider $480 million waterfront development at Mariner’s Cove in the northern end of Gold Coast.

Facilities at the hotel will include a signature restaurant with semi-opened kitchen, a cafe, three bars, a lobby lounge and an outdoor rooftop swimming pool. There will also be 587 square meters of meeting and events space, including a 512 square meter ballroom.

Marriott International is recognized as the global leader in the upper upscale and luxury segments. Today’s 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.

said Richard Crawford, Vice President of Hotel Development, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific, Marriott International.

The Ritz-Carlton Gold Coast will join JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa, which opened in late 2020.

Marriott’s Ritz-Carlton brand returned to Australia in 2019 with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton Perth, situated within the city’s landmark development at Elizabeth Quay, overlooking the Swan River and Kings Park. The long-awaited Ritz-Carlton Melbourne, which will be Australia’s highest hotel, will open its doors in early 2023.

Meanwhile, Marriott recently announced that it will bring the W Hotels brand to the Dominican Republic.
