1960s resort transforms into new-look boutique hotel, The Island

Most Gold Coast folk would remember The Islander as that retro pink hotel in the heart of Surfers Paradise that often had Schoolies swanning around the balconies come summer time. Whilst the shell remains, hotel has had a new lease on life – it's now the Gold Coast's newest boutique hotel, known as The Island. It's chic, sleek, and there isn't a school-leaver in sight. Here's a sneak peek inside.


The Island’s new owner, The Katarzyna Group, which is behind a swag of popular Brisbane venues like Cloudland, Press Club and The Family (due to reopen as EI8HT in June), underwent a massive transformation of the pastel-pink 1960s hotel. After more than 12 months of works, the hotel has reopened, revealing a truly unique boutique hotel offering. The design maintains the rich history of Surfers Paradise, whilst integrating modern elements and refined detail.

The Island’s meticulous transformation saw its 98 rooms given a complete facelift, resulting in cool and functional spaces that put a unique, fresh and fun twist on the concept of ’boutique hotels’. The ‘old meets new’ design ethos has created a welcoming vibe with an appealing sense of simplicity. There are classic, superior and deluxe suites to suit your needs – perfect for the local ‘staycayer’ or instate visitor. The transformation also saw the creation of The Island’s brand new restaurant, bar and rooftop – read more about that here.
