The Jewel is a shimmering, avant-garde and ultra-luxe development currently under construction on the beachfront at Surfers Paradise, on south-east Queensland’s internationally-renowned Gold Coast.


When complete, Jewel will be a truly iconic piece of architecture to rival some of the grandest structures in the world.  It will feature three stunning towers including a five-star hotel and a serviced apartment complex. 


The three towers’ shimmering appearance will be created through the use of a unique cladding technique, to resemble three spectacular crystals emerging from the sand. The project has been inspired by the smoky quartz crystals recently discovered in the region, but which date back thousands of years.  The three Jewel towers will recreate their exquisite forms and will be a direct representation of the underlying geology, spirit and beauty of the Gold Coast.


The image of these three crystalline structures simply emerging from the earth is a very powerful feature of Jewel’s architectural narrative – a collaboration between renowned Florida architect Chad Oppenheim and award-winning, Gold Coast DBI Design Director, Barry Lee.


Jewel will set a new benchmark in luxury hotel accommodation within Australia’s tourism market, where amenities will combine to create flawless, luxury living. It will offer a tranquil sanctuary right in the heart of the Gold Coast, allowing visitors and guests alike to take a break from the hustle and bustle of all that Surfers Paradise has to offer. Comfort and serenity will be hallmarks of the Gold Coast’s first truly beach-front development in 30 years.


This is the Jewel of Australia.
