Gold Coast Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Gold Coast for luxury hotels

Gold Coast is all about indulgence, whether in terms of the sumptuous seafront with its sun-kissed sands and perfect surf, or the gleaming hotels brimming with all the possible perks you could imagine. You’ll find a good number of luxury pads throughout the central district of Surfers Paradise, an area synonymous with hedonism and good times. Then there’s the neighboring district of Broadbeach, which is a little less busy and has its own share of high-end accommodation, while Main Beach – in the north of Gold Coast – is also a good area to consider.

Top luxury hotels in Gold Coast

Jupiters Hotel & Casino Gold Coast is a place where you can pamper yourself like an A-lister. The guestrooms are subtle and stylish, while the on-site beauty experts can give you a refreshing massage or full-body treatment, before you head over to the casino and try your hand at the craps table. You could also consider the twin towers of the Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise, which offer glorious views of the sun-speckled ocean. QT Gold Coast not only has up-scale guestrooms, but also an infamous on-site cocktail bar that’s a hit with high-rolling party animals.

Where to find the best fine dining in Gold Coast

Tucked away in the streets of Gold Coast are chic restaurants serving the freshest, most artfully presented ingredients. Seafood is a big thing in Broadbeach, from crispy soft shell crab to grilled lobster, while jewel-like sushi is served in sleek, modern, Japanese eateries. Maine Beach also has up-scale offerings – how about dining on delicate veal ravioli while looking out at the gleaming yachts of the marina? Foodies should also venture down to Burleigh Heads, where fresh fish and shellfish can be found a stone’s throw from the water.

The most unique things to do in Gold Coast

Theme parks are one thing, but how about a rollercoaster-like experience on the ocean? Book a session of jet boating and you’ll get just that. The big, high-speed boats will surge you along the waters, leaping off the waves and thrilling you with sudden 360-degree turns. It’s an experience that will get that adrenaline pumping like nothing else. For yet more excitement, why not arrange for a tandem sky dive? After taking off from the local airport, you’ll get to enjoy unbeatable views of the beaches and forests, before you’ll feel the rush of freefall while attached to an expert diver. A calmer experience can be had on a whale watching cruise. Some of the boats have water-level viewing decks, giving you an intimate insight into these vast underwater mammals. Keep a look out for playful dolphins and tranquil turtles as well.

Best ways to get around Gold Coast

If you’re here to just bask on the sands and don’t intend to go much further beyond the coast than your hotel room, you probably won’t need to think too much about transport in Gold Coast. There is a light rail, which services the major hotspots, however, and if you’re keen to explore the famous Hinterland – with its craggy parklands – then it’s well worth renting your own vehicle for total freedom to wander.
