This stretch of Queensland coast is home to some of Australia’s finest beaches, most innovative dining, best entertainment and most glamorous lifestyles. So it’s no surprise that the accommodation options are also a little out of this world. Whether you’re travelling with your soul mate or a few mates, here are some of the best hotel picks on the Gold Coast.

Sea World Resort, Seaworld Drive

If you’ve got a few little ones, the only thing they’d love more than a trip to a theme park would be staying in the theme park itself. This family-friendly resort is just next to all the fun and excitement of Sea World, but still retains all the style and facilities mum and dad need to also enjoy the break.

This recent addition to Surfers Paradise combines the glitzy glam of the modern Gold Coast experience with the laidback surfer charm of days gone by. It’s a comfortable, stylish escape that greatly appeals to younger travellers who value quality design. QT is also home to dining options – Stingray Lounge, Bazaar Restaurant and Fixx Cafe – that have the food critics taking notice.
