Jupiters is no spring chicken, and in fact is currently undergoing a huge transformation, so my expectations about what its hotel rooms would be like were realistic. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room had a nice outlook towards the beach (above; what little you could see of it, given the number of high-rises).

The king-size bed was super comfortable and the bathroom, although small with a shower over the tub, was adequate. I liked that the room had free wi-fi. We stayed shortly before Christmas and the Lobby was beautifully decorated for the festive season. The red carpet was out for the opening of Kiyomi, Chase Kojima’s cutting-edge Japanese restaurant, which I’ve written about in a separate post.

Kiyomi is one of the new restaurants opened as part of Jupiters’ $345 million transformation, and some exquisite chocolates created to celebrate the opening were waiting in our room for us.

The hotel also has a new Italian restaurant, Cucina Vivo, and a swish new poolside experience featuring private bungalows, cabanas and a poolside bar. Jupiters has needed a bit of love for a while now, but with the addition of a couple of hip restaurants and bars, and the construction of a swish 72-suite hotel being built alongside it next year, I’m betting my money on a win-win.

The hotel is in an excellent location, within walking distance to Broadbeach, and with Pacific Fair shopping centre across the road. It’s easy to grab a taxi out the front, and there’s both a bus stop and a train stop nearby. Hop on a train and your ticket is valid for two hours after purchase.

    Good to see but it needs a lot more work and investment. It has been a sad decline for the last 10 years. I did a conference there last year and the Atrium looked like a western suburb’s Leages club.
