Accor and sbe have unveiled plans to plant the first Mondrian hotel in Australia on the Gold Coast.

Mondrian Gold Coast will be set on a beachfront site on the corner of First Avenue and The Esplanade Burleigh Heads, with a dual-tower property featuring a 208-room hotel and 89 private residences.

A three-level podium connecting both buildings will act as the common area, including a fitness centre, spa, restaurants and swimming pools.

Mondrian Gold Coast is one of nine new Mondrian properties that sbe plans to open globally by 2022, with six more in the pipeline.

Mondrian Seoul Itaewon recently opened in August in South Korea, while Mondrian Shoreditch London is set to open in 2021. In the pipeline are six more Mondrian properties in the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, Puerto Rico, Thailand and Vietnam.

By 2022, sbe plans to open 50 new hotels internationally, of which nine will fall under the Mondrian brand.

Chadi Farhat, COO of sbe said, “With five open properties, nine in development, and six more to be announced, Mondrian has established itself as one of the strongest brands in the sbe lifestyle portfolio, showing staying power for the long-term.”

Accor acquired a 50% stake in sbe in 2018.
