Top 10 luxury hotels on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

As the host of the recently announced 2018 Commonwealth Games, the world’s attention will turn towards Australia’s Gold Coast. It was the 42 kilometres of uninterrupted beach that first drew travellers to the region. However today, while the beach remains as a family favourite, it’s the theme parks, a 24-hour casino and a thriving nightlife that have firmly put the Gold Coast on the tourist map. Here’s a top 10 list of luxury accommodation on the Gold Coast.

Palazzo Versace

Arguably the most opulent accommodation option on the Gold Coast, Palazzo Versace is the world’s first fashion-branded hotel and channels the vision, style and sophistication of Gianni Versace. The stunning waterfront location, impressive architectural design and centrepiece antique chandelier create a sumptuous holiday experience.

Hilton Surfers Paradise

With a distinctive curved architectural design, the Hilton Surfers Paradise delivers an exceptional accommodation experience. Conveniently located in the very heart of Surfers Paradise, moments to the iconic beach and famed Cavill Avenue, the hotel offers a range of in-house services and facilities. Enjoy a meal in Luke Mangan’s Salt Grill restaurant, savour a cocktail in the FIX lounge bar or rejuvenate in the spa.

Jupiters Hotel and Casino Gold Coast Broadbeach

The famed Jupiters Casino, situated in exclusive Broadbeach, offers the convenience of a luxury hotel within the entertainment complex. Choose from a beautifully-appointed guest room, suite or penthouse, before heading downstairs to try your luck on the gaming tables. The casino also regularly presents tournaments, world-class theatre shows, live music concerts and stand-up comedians.

Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa

With a recent $20 million refurbishment, the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa has again garnered attention from the holidaying social set. After a day’s activities on the beach, enjoy a meal in one of the restaurants including Citrique for international cuisine, the Benihana Japanese Steak House or the Lobby Lounge Bar for tapas.

Azzura Greens Resort

Situated on Hope Island surrounded by scenic canals and waterways, the Azzura Greens Resort offers luxury apartment style accommodation. The centrepiece of the resort is a lagoon-inspired swimming pool set in lush tropical gardens. Other facilities include barbeque areas and a gymnasium, while the adjacent Pat Cash Tennis Academy and the Hope Island Golf Club welcome guests from the Azzura.

Sheraton Mirage Resort and Spa Gold Coast

With absolute beach front access and set within tropical lagoons and lush gardens, the Sheraton Mirage Resort and Spa Gold Coast is a destination hotel. Facilities include a heated pool, tennis court, fitness centre and dedicated children’s pool.

Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach

The Sofitel proudly offers spacious, free-of-clutter rooms that lead to a private balcony for generous views over the sea or the mountains to the west. Broadbeach’s shops, bars, restaurants are nearby and the casino is accessed via a monorail.

Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove

Using as inspiration traditional Australian architectural designs, the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove offers resort-style accommodation. The big attraction is the private one-acre salt-water beach lagoon pool. Energetic holiday makers will appreciate the tennis courts, heated lap pool, yoga room and fitness centre.

Peppers Broadbeach

With panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean and across to the hinterland from the two towers, Peppers Broadbeach presents a chic, sophisticated place to stay while travelling for business or pleasure. Once checked in, stroll through the zen gardens, cool down in the lap pool or relax in the stream room.

Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise

Boasting Queensland’s only revolving restaurant, the views from the Crowne Plaza’s Four Winds Restaurant are just as terrific as the inspired cuisine created by culinary experts. The hotel itself also offers a day spa and a chapel for romantic Gold Coast’s weddings.
