A NEW 150-room hotel resort project for Hope Island is being unveiled today, three decades after Sanctuary Cove put the area on the map.
Chinese company Golden Horse will officially confirm plans for a $60 million development on land it snapped up near The Links golf course and clubhouse which it bought in 2013.
Sources close to the project have confirmed it is a 150-room hotel of five-star standard with associated pool and restaurant facilities.
It is one of the first significant hotel projects in the area since Sanctuary Cove launched in 1986 with an associated InterContinental hotel resort.
Gold Coast Tourism chairman Paul Donovan said it was an exciting accommodation investment to the growing northern end of the city which would be well used.
