Accor will take over the Radisson Resort Gold Coast starting this December, with plans to re-brand the hotel to Mercure Gold Coast Resort. The hotel is Accor’s 200th in Australia, achieved just over 21 years after launching its first hotel in Australia.
Accor was appointed managers of the resort by GC Hotel Management.
The resort is located in the Gold Coast’s “Green Belt,” within driving distance of the Gold Coast’s beaches, as well as the Springbrook – Mt Tamborine rainforest area. With the recent opening of a new extension of the freeway, the resort is just over 20 minutes to Gold Coast’s airport, less than an hour from Brisbane and within driving distance of Gold Coast’s theme parks, Metricon Stadium, Skilled Park and the Robina business center.
The resort is affiliated with five championship golf courses, including the adjacent Palm Meadows course, which has hosted a range of international tournaments over the last 25 years.
Guests have access to the hotel's extensive resort facilities, including a day spa, driving range, two outdoor pools, four floodlit tennis courts, a fully equipped gymnasium, sauna and an outdoor spa.
The resort is designed for conferences, events, incentives, weddings and other functions, with a capacity for up to 700 delegates. Facilities include 10 versatile conference rooms and three outdoor venues.
