Luxury becomes a reality at Esperance

As the physical spaces grow from the ground up, so too is the passionate team behind the creation of Esperance, with the addition of our new General Manager and Gold Coast local, Michael Foster.

June 10, 2022

Esperance Hope Island is reinventing what it means to “retire in style”.

Set to be one of the Gold Coast’s most luxurious retirement communities, Esperance will embody luxury, convenience and lifestyle at every touch point, with exclusive resident amenities and bespoke service offerings that take retirement to the next level.

And it’s not just the amenities that have been designed to enhance the day-to-day for residents. The team behind Esperance has extensive experience managing luxury 5-star hotels and is passionate about fostering a premium lifestyle.

Esperance Hope Island General Manager and Gold Coast local, Michael Foster, has recently joined the team after more than 18 years at some of Australia’s most opulent resorts.

Developed by Glen Brown and the team at Reside Communities, Michael was drawn to the group’s inspiring vision for Esperance that focuses on exceptional service delivery for residents.  

“I’ve been working in Internationally branded hotels for more than 18 years, including as the Director of Sales at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove which ironically is just around the corner from Esperance,” said Mr Foster

“Most recently I bought the Dorsett Hotel brand to Australia as the General Manager of Dorsett Gold Coast which opened its doors late last year.

“Glen’s vision for Reside Communities and Esperance is unlike anything I’ve seen with other retirement villages. The amenities, hotel-style concierge and resident services are unparalleled in this area. Many 5-star hotels would be envious.”

While Esperance’s first stage, Esprit, is still under construction Michael’s role is focused on ensuring every meticulous detail of the community is ready for its opening. From the design of the amenities to the furniture, operational systems, bar concepts and staff, Michael brings his luxury hotel approach to every element of Esperance.

“Right now I’m getting Esperance ready for our future residents by ensuring everything is in place for them to have a 5-star experience,” said Mr Foster.  

“Once we’re open, my role will be to lead the day-to-day operation of the community. My whole team will be helping residents to live life to the fullest by tailoring services and amenities to suit their needs and preferences, which is what I’m really passionate about.”

Construction of Esperance’s first stage, Esprit, is nearing completion and features a range of premium apartments and resort-style amenities including an indoor pool, gymnasium, private cinema, golf simulator and more.  

Only a limited selection of two to three-bedroom apartments remain with prices starting from $570,000.
