THE ISLAND is a Gold Coast icon, situated firmly in the heart of Surfers Paradise – and in the heart of many locals.  Purchased by Brisbane heavyweight Raphael Bickle – famous for the uber-successful Cloudland, Empire Hotel and Press Club – this site is now being fully redeveloped to launch in March 2017 as THE ISLAND, the new jewel in the crown of our most beloved summer holiday hotspot.

THE ISLAND is all about enjoying the good things in life, like eating, drinking and relaxing with family & friends, while staying in a stunning 4½ star boutique hotel which has everything you look for on a holiday to the Gold Coast. Spectacular fit outs in true Bickle style will create a relaxed, luxe beach house vibe, with multiple dining and drinking options to suit locals and international visitors alike.

Queenslanders often take for granted the dazzling beauty of our south-east corner, so it seems only fair that THE ISLAND is being created so that guests from all over the world can share in a piece of what we wake up to every morning.

For lazy afternoons, family fun or full blown summer sessions, THE ISLAND Rooftop Bar opens on level 1 this December and will be the ultimate unrivalled outdoor destination.

Stay tuned Gold Coast, this is the phoenix rising: This is THE ISLAND
