The Ruby Apartments, the first tower of the “billion-dollar game changer” development The Ruby Collection opened in November last year.
The stunning tower spans 30 floors and features 230 stylish one, two- and three-bedroom apartments and sky suites, plus 13 luxurious ground floor villas.
Crystalized by the motto ‘We don’t do ordinary’ these shiny new apartments deliver a sophisticated indulgence and cutting-edge features that epitomise Gold Coast hospitality and have set a new benchmark for apartment holidays.
Although Ruby offers self-contained apartment holidays, there’s also 24-hour resort facilities and exceptional service. Each apartment has a “home away from home” feel, spacious living areas, full kitchen and laundry and has stunning views of the Pacific Ocean or Gold Coast hinterland.
A holiday at Ruby is the perfect combination of hotel, apartment and AirBNB style holiday and is the holiday offer that many people have been craving.
The Ruby Apartments is stage 1 of the 4-tower development that is The Ruby Collection. Construction of towers 2 & 3 is expected to commence in 2020, with the 4th tower to be completed by the end of 2025.
By the time the project is complete, The Ruby Collection will embody 1,600 stunning, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and ground floor villa’s. It will boast over 2,990 bedrooms and will be the largest independent accommodation provider in Queensland.
The 4 towers will span across 2.5 hectares of integrated exhilaration and fun and combine the best of both worlds. The precinct will feature all the facilities guests have grown to love at Paradise Resort over the past 38 years, combined with the look and feel that holidaymakers are now embracing at The Ruby Apartments.
Connecting the four towers will be a village green offering space for events, innovative public art, world-class entertainment, signature chef restaurants, boutique bars and cafes and quality retail stores.
Well-loved features of the award-winning Paradise Resort Gold Coast, which currently sits on the site of stages three and four, such as the famous water park, the ever-popular kids club, ice rink and laser tag, lively movie nights, resort mascots and magic shows, will all evolve as the new venue takes shape, but on a much larger scale.
The location is set to become an institution for shoppers, tourists and diners, looking for fine food, beautiful surrounds and friendly staff all in an environment that will suit a variety of tastes.
The Ruby Collection project is owned by The Ralan Group, headed by property developer Mr William O’Dwyer. It’s expected to create over 5,000 jobs during construction and around 1,100 full time jobs on completion, across the accommodation, retail and dining precinct.
The Ruby Point of Difference
In short, The Ruby Collection is a game changer. At Ruby, the traditional roles of customer service have been replaced with Ruby Ambassadors, whose roles are multi-faceted, enabling them to have a better understanding of guests needs and offer a more personalised service. From the moment guests arrive, Ruby Ambassadors are on hand to assist with guests’ every need – from assisting at check-in, booking local tours and attractions, making a dinner reservation or having a conversation over morning coffee. Ruby Ambassadors offer a more personalised service while creating a fun casual atmosphere.
A Contemporary Resort Experience
The Ruby Apartments are crystalized by the motto ‘We don’t do ordinary’ and from the moment guests arrive, they can experience the state-of-the-art systems and technology that will make their stay at Ruby different to any other resort they’ve ever stayed.
The Ruby Apartments house Australia’s first Enzosystems hospitality kiosks and are Ruby’s front desk. These kiosks offer a complete check-in and check-out process which have already delighted our most tech savvy travellers. Ruby Ambassadors are on hand to help out where required.
The Ruby Concierge app also provides guests the freedom to connect with Ruby Ambassadors around the clock and enable them to order room service, fresh towels, or even a new teddy bear, all direct from their in-room tablet.
The Ralan Group and The Birth of The Ruby Collection
Mr O’Dwyer first came to the Gold Coast as a backpacker from Ireland with his now wife, in the late 80’s, where he spent a few months working at Jupiter’s Casino and fell in love with the city. Having been involved in the marketing and development of residential real estate since 1993, Mr O’Dwyer launched The Ralan Group in 1998. The company has since successfully delivered 38 separate projects across NSW. A family man at heart, the development and buildings are named for Mr O’Dwyer’s youngest daughter, Ruby. A proud father of 3 daughters, Mr O’Dwyer’s company name ‘Ralan’ also significantly unites the names of his two eldest daughters Rachel and Lauren. Mr O’Dwyer’s passion lies in the development and introduction of The Ruby Collection as an accommodation experience like no other on the Gold Coast. His vision is of a place where busy families can come together and enjoy all the comforts of home. A place to relax and unwind while savouring precious family memories on the Gold Coast of sunny Queensland.
