The Langham brand is known for its luxurious hotels and resorts – so when they announced the opening of one in Gold Coast I was already sold. Luckily because of the current travel ban, the new Langham Gold Coast is set to open in a post-covid world in the end of 2021. With 169 well-appointed rooms and suites, the hotel will also manage the Jewel Residences by The Langham which includes 170 serviced apartments designed and built to the award-winning brand’s exacting specifications.
Located on the beachfront of Surfers Paradise, the hotel is the first and largest development with direct beach access to be built in the coastal city within the last 30 years. Hotel guests can find themselves in between the third floor and the 20th floor, while the Jewel Residences reside between the 22nd and 49th floors. All of which have stunning city and ocean views.
“Combining the cosmopolitan vibrancy and relaxed lifestyle for which the Gold Coast is renowned will certainly position The Langham as the quintessential luxury urban resort,” said Stefan Leser, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. “We are very much looking forward to complementing our legendary service standards with the warmth of this beautiful city to make our all guests’ experiences celebratory and memorable.”
From the deluxe room to the elegant Presidential suite, The Langham Gold Coast has a range of accommodation to suit guests on corporate or leisure stays. Upping the ante on the suite stakes, all 18 suites at The Langham feature an impressive 180-degree uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. The interior design firm for the hotel is Sydney-based Studio Aria which took the inspiration of the design concept from the prime coastal location and the nearby national parks and hinterland. The colour palette of the hotel interiors distinctively reflects the “coast meets city” theme, with its soothing blend of teal, azure and tan shades derived from the local flora and fauna. The salt and sun bleached timbers, metal and glass materials give a natural yet contemporary finish which seamlessly integrates with and complements the modern architecture.
The Langham Gold Coast will also feature a variety of restaurants from a casual grab and go café to a lobby lounge to a podium sky terrace with bar overlooking the ocean! Headlining the culinary offerings will be T’ang Court, the signature Cantonese restaurant which will extend the prestigious reputation of its Michelin starred counterparts at The Langham hotels in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
A tradition made famous by The Langham in 1865 is the signature afternoon tea served at Palm Court, the lobby lounge and bar. The Langham Gold Coast will also be serving stylish and elegant afternoon teas in the city.
You can also find the world famous Chuan Spa offering treatments inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophies in a tranquil, meditative setting. This giant 500-square metre spa will offer seven private treatment rooms as well as a health and beauty centre and a fully equipped fitness centre, an indoor free form and outdoor swimming pool.
