Five Star Gold Coast hotels

Most popular areas in Gold Coast for 5-star hotels

Gold Coast is famed as one of Australia’s most dazzling beach holiday destinations – a place that delivers sun, sea, and sand, not to mention pumping party spots and gleamingly up-scale hotels. Many of the latter can be found clustered in Surfers Paradise – the main entertainment district of Gold Coast – while you’ll also be able to find high-end accommodation in the nearby area of Broadbeach. Alternatively, look to the north of Gold Coast towards Main Beach, which offers luxury hotels by the lapping waters.

Top 5-star hotels in Gold Coast

Jupiters Hotel & Casino Gold Coast is a sumptuous place to stay, with guestrooms decked out in a subtle grey and white aesthetic, and a range of beauty treatments on offer within the hotel. There’s also a world-class casino where you can try your luck at the craps table. Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise is another handsome option, with rooms split between 2 tall towers, and with wide views of the ocean to enjoy. Meanwhile, QT Gold Coast has spacious guestrooms to relax in, as well as a cocktail lounge popular with A-list party animals.

Where to find the best restaurants in Gold Coast

Fresh, zingy flavors are the order of the day in Gold Coast’s up-scale eateries. You’ll find a feast of options in popular Broadbeach, and can expect to tuck into artful dishes like veal carpaccio, and spiced soft shell crab with Asian slaw. Elegant morsels of sushi can also be enjoyed in uber-modern Japanese restaurants. Up in Maine Beach, you can dine on saffron-infused pasta with lobster while looking out over the marina, while down in Burleigh Heads you can sample the best of Australian seafood, like crayfish and scallops.

The most popular things to do in Gold Coast

The top attraction in Gold Coast has to be Surfers Paradise – a long, wide strip of sun-scorched sand that’s kissed by the Pacific Ocean. It’s the perfect place to work on your tan, splash around in the waters, or just go for a stroll along Cavill Avenue, the pedestrian mall with its colorful array of shops, bars, and eateries. You’ll also want to see some of the other coastal hotspots that have helped put this part of Australia on the map, and Burleigh Heads is a must. It has its own picturesque beach, as well as a monthly arts and crafts market where dozens of stalls offer locally made artworks, preserves, and cakes. Another major attraction is Warner Bros. Movie World, with its superhero-themed rollercoasters, while nearby Springbrook National Park is a lush wilderness with ancient trees and waterfalls to see.

Best ways to get around Gold Coast

You could easily spend an entire holiday in Gold Coast without setting foot on public transport. That’s especially true if you’re planning to stick to one popular location, like Surfers Paradise. That said, one very easy way of really packing in a lot of sightseeing is to hop on the Gold Coast Light Rail service, which will whisk you to and from major areas like Main Beach and Broadbeach. Buses also run here 24 hours a day.
