HILTON SURFERS PARADISE HOTEL & RESIDENCES
Soaring above the white sands of Australia’s most iconic beach, Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel & Residences is located in the heart of the Gold Coast. The hotel offers a range of stylish accommodation, a luxury spa, four pools, a private theatre and BBQ facilities. Discover the sleek lobby cocktail bar, Ms Margot’s Bar & Eats, and soak up the Queensland sun with a cocktail in hand at The Deck.
Just steps from the beach, the sculpted towers of Peppers Broadbeach soar above the Gold Coast city skyline and offer panoramic views to the Pacific Ocean and Gold Coast Hinterland. The resort facilities are seemingly endless, with a heated outdoor pool perfect for relaxing, a lap pool, gym and sauna to keep fit, as well as a private cinema, zen garden and tai chi lawn to help you unwind after a big day exploring the excitement on your doorstep.
Q1 RESORT AND SPA
Bunk down in the tallest building on the Gold Coast at Q1 Resort and Spa. Just a five-minute walk to Cavill Mall in the heart of Surfers Paradise, Q1 has 78 floors with the 77th floor dedicated to the SkyPoint Observation Deck which offers visitors a 360-degree view over Surfers. A one-bedroom unit with a balcony and a large lounge-dining area will put you minutes from the Surfers strip, but if you want a meal closer to home there is Asami Teppanyaki on the ground floor while the SkyPoint Bistro & Bar has the best breakfast outlook in the area.
PEPPERS SOUL SURFERS PARADISE
Falling short of its rival Q1 by a single floor, the 77-floor Peppers Soul Surfers Paradise is a mix of hotel rooms and lavish apartments, most with huge sliding glass doors so you don’t miss an inch of the killer ocean views. Guests can dine at Hyde Paradiso for oceanfront views, oversized cocktails and mouthwatering Mediterranean food.
