The team at the Star Gold Coast certainly know how to turn a Professional Conference Organiser into a star for the night. Meeting our hosts at the Coolangatta Airport we were escorted to our waiting Limousine for the drive to The Star Gold Coast. After enjoying some free time to settle into our Star Grand superior deluxe room we were advised to meet in the hotel lobby at 4.30pm. Our star evening included:
The Grand Hotel
Recently renovated with 596 accommodation rooms
Cucina Vivo restaurant – on the balcony sipping Aperol Spritz with Italian nibbles watching the sun set.
For VIP & board dinners there is a private dining room that seats up to 16 guests. The Balcony is also available for exclusive use and has capacity for 30 guests
Ocean Terrace accommodation room which has its own private bar and a large terrace – a great place to host bubbles for a VIP group.
Ideal for a small VIP cocktail function up to 20 guests
All suite hotel with 56 suites from 70m to 328 sqm.
We had the chance to view the amazing Penthouse Spa Suite and Penthouse Deluxe Billiard Suite
An ideal swish suite for the blokes, large enough to cater for a small cocktail function
Located on the 19 floor of the hotel with sweeping views over the Pacific Ocean. “Uber-chic” an ideal place for us to sit outside and enjoy more bubbles and elegant nibbles showcasing Australia’s finest produce.
A private dining room located on the mezzanine level above the main restaurant able to cater for 25 guests.
The main event was the spectacular dinner in the Event Centre. The first venue was our destination for our two-course seated dinner. A picture tells a thousand words and the theming for the night was truly amazing.
After the main a revel was dramatically opened to showcase dessert buffet stations with a fairy tale theme.
Entertainment during dessert included a pianist, harpist and violinist leading up to a private performance from Anthony Callea from Australian idol fame.
