Four Star Gold Coast hotels

Most popular areas in Gold Coast for 4-star hotels

Australia’s not short on places to soak up the sun and frolic in glittering waters, but Gold Coast manages to stand apart as a perpetually popular hotspot. A wide range of 4-star hotels cater to the legions of visitors, with many to be found in the party-mad district of Surfers Paradise. Close by, you’ll also find the slightly less hectic coastal swathe of Broadbeach, which has hotels of its own, while to the north of Gold Coast there are high-end hotels in elegant and genteel Hope Island.

Top 4-star hotels in Gold Coast

Vibe Hotel Gold Coast is slap-bang in the center of Surfers Paradise, and you can make the most of its location by relaxing on the outdoor terrace or gazing out from the balcony of your spacious guestroom. Then there’s the Alpha Sovereign Hotel, set within twin towers overlooking both the Gold Coast Hinterland and the beach. A swimming pool, sauna, and al fresco dining are among its perks. Another alternative is the Ramada Hotel Hope Harbour, which boasts pools, a fitness center, and picturesque panoramas over a marina.

Where to find the best restaurants in Gold Coast

From high-end dining to more casual eateries, there is no shortage of places to tickle the taste buds in Gold Coast. Broadbeach has a feast of restaurants to choose from, whether you fancy tucking into wood-fired pizzas in fresco-adorned surroundings, or feel like a sizzling steak by the beach. Up in Hope Island, you can feast on Chinese classics like golden, roasted duck or crab stir-fry with views of the marina, while hearty fare like burgers and fried fish can be enjoyed in lively Surfers Paradise.

The most popular things to do in Gold Coast

When it comes to the major attractions of Gold Coast, the clue is in the name. You’ll likely be spending most of your time where the sea meets the sand, and the most popular strip is Surfers Paradise. Whether you want to bask and relax, hit the waves on a jet ski, or take a wander of the bustling shops by the seafront, it ticks all the boxes for a beach holiday. David Fleay Wildlife Park is where you can enter unspoiled habitats to meet koalas, emus, and even the occasional crocodile. The live wildlife shows are a must-see. Then, leave the natural world behind for a futuristic odyssey in Holoverse, which plunges you into colorful, fully interactive virtual worlds. Water sports fanatics should also pencil in a day at Snapper Rocks, where the cascading waves have made it famous among surfers.

Best ways to get around Gold Coast

It’s perfectly possible to have an entire holiday in Gold Coast without bothering with any form of transport – especially if you’re sticking to one area, like Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. However, if you want to make the most of your visit by checking out the various coastal hotspots, hop on the Gold Coast Light Rail service. And if you want to explore the Hinterland area, away from the beaches, hiring a car is the best thing to do.
