Work has commenced on a $50 million Rydges-branded hotel at Gold Coast Airport, which is a milestone in the
development and activation of the precinct. Ground was broken on the hotel in February 2019, with a sod turning ceremony attended by Member for McPherson, the Hon. Karen Andrews MP, Minster for Tourism Industry Development Kate Jones MP and developer John Robinson.

The 192-room hotel, which will rise to the south of the airport site, will connect via a plaza area to the expanded terminal, which is also scheduled for redevelopment in 2019. The hotel will measure seven storeys and be topped by a rooftop bar and viewing deck, with views over Kirra Beach to the east and across the runway to the west.

A $50 million Rydges branded hotel with a rooftop bar and viewing deck will be the jewel in the crown of Gold Coast Airport when complete in 2019. The four star hotel will include 192 rooms and suites over seven storeys with sweeping views over Kirra beach, and across the runway to the hinterland. As well as its rooftop amenity, the hotel will boast a restaurant, resort-style swimming pool, and substantial function, conference and meeting facilities.
