Easy to get to, near-perfect weather all year round and plenty of accommodation choices – it’s no wonder the Gold Coast is one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations.
Popular with holiday-makers since the 1920s, the Gold Coast really took off in the 1980s, as a major tourist hot spot.
Today tourism is the area’s most significant industry, as the region is blessed with more than its fair share of coastline (70km), beaches, waterways, theme parks, famous surf spots and, of course, that marvellous climate.
There are many hotels and guest houses but Gold Coast accommodation apartments are increasingly becoming the first choice for savvy holiday-makers, as they offer luxurious, modern living and flexibility at a price people can afford.
Plenty of choice
Most Gold Coast luxury accommodation is now apartment-based, too, although the area is also home to one of the most opulent hotels in the world, the Palazzo Versace. In fact, you should add having High Tea at the hotel to your must-do holiday list!
With so much choice, finding the perfect Gold Coast accommodation apartment may be confusing, but there is some simple advice you can take.
You may wish to start your search in Broadbeach, fast becoming THE Gold Coast location for holidays, due to its stunning beach, parks, famous restaurant strip and excellent accommodation.
While teenagers still love Surfers Paradise, those travellers who enjoy luxury accommodation and fine dining would certainly prefer Broadbeach.
Relaxing and carefree
Choose accommodation close to the beach – 100 metres is about right – and within walking distance of the many wonderful restaurants, as that will ensure a relaxing, carefree evening.
And as much as you may love the beach, always choose Gold Coast accommodation apartments with at least one swimming pool. A sauna and spa would also add a real sense of luxury to your accommodation.
As far as your actual apartment goes, always look for something that is modern and stylish, luxurious and well appointed, air-conditioned and self-contained. Make sure it’s spacious, with a fully-equipped kitchen and private laundry facilities, to ensure your stay is easy and relaxing.
Think about the things you’d enjoy doing and seeing whilst on holiday and make sure your resort is within easy reach.
One of the many advantages of the Gold Coast as a holiday location is how easy it is to get there, by road, rail or air – and how good the transport is when you get there.
Gold Coast hinterland
For example, a trip out to the stunning Gold Coast hinterland is recommended. If you drove to your accommodation, it’s simple. But if you didn’t bring your car, it’s still so easy to arrange a trip out there – just talk to the tour desk staff at your resort.
Just a few kilometres from the ocean, the Gold Coast hinterland is like another world. The scenery will take your breath away, with its mountains and rainforests, quaint little villages and waterfalls.
And with so many art galleries, antique shops and craft stalls, it’s the perfect place to pick up souvenirs and gifts to take home.
Gold Coast luxury accommodation is very affordable these days and really does turn your trip into something very special. Choose from one or two-bedroom air-conditioned apartments, with sumptuous Queen-sized beds, spacious balconies, fully-equipped kitchen, private laundry facilities, Austar and so much more.
Attention to detail
Comfort, convenience and every attention to detail is part of the package if you choose the right resort.
Although you’re just steps away from the beach, imagine having both indoor and outdoor swimming pools to choose from, perfect for a swim at any time of day, any time of year.
The important thing to remember when you’re on vacation is exactly that – you’re ON VACATION! It’s meant to be all about relaxing, letting the stress of everyday living just slip away. It’s about indulgence, comfort and ease.
So for the sake of a few dollars extra, you could be staying in Gold Coast luxury accommodation, rather than some outdated resort with a swimming pool that looks nothing like the photograph!
