Movie World plans for a 398-room hotel reignited after trademark application

Plans for a 398-room at Movie World on the Gold Coast have been reignited after Village Roadshow lodged a trademark application for the hotel’s brand.

Plans for the newly trademarked Hotel V include a business centre and function centre as well as “extensive outdoor swimming facilities”, according to a report in the Gold Coast Bulletin.

The plans launched in 2017 were derailed after Village Roadshow was delisted from the ASX last year after a takeover by private equity firm BGH.

No official announcement has been made but Village Roadshow chief operating officer Bikash Randhawa has been hinting at some big news on social media saying there are “some HUGE announcements from us” on the horizon.

“There will be no theme park on the GC or in Australia that will be able to compete with us,” he posted.
