Located within The Star Gold Coast, the stylish Dorsett boasts 313 chic hotel rooms all decked out with top-of-the-range appliances, sweeping coastline, ocean and Hinterland views and king beds in every room. If you don’t get excited about a king bed, you need to rethink your priorities.

You’ll have exclusive access to Isoletto Pool Club, a heated 12-metre rooftop infinity pool, direct connection to The Star and all its venues and the hotel’s Level 19 Executive VIP Lounge. We love that all of the hotel’s impressive artworks are designed by Gold Coast locals. Book in at one of the Gold Coast’s newest hotels and we promise you’ll be back again…and again. Book here.
