If you are considering a getaway to the Gold Coast that fuses family friendliness with a little bit of luxe, why not treat yourself to a stay at Q1 Resorts and Spa in Surfers Paradise?
Designed as an ode to the iconic Sydney Olympics, Q1 has been architecturally inspired by both the Olympic torch and Sydney Opera House. The skyscraper commands attention in the Surfers Paradise skyline, offering a unique and iconic silhouette thanks to its towering 322.5m height.
Complementing this rich architectural history is Q1’s reputation as the go-to destination for Gold Coast luxury accommodation. This resort boasts elite facilities that allow each and every guest (no matter how big or small) to indulge their needs, whether that be playing in the pool, kicking back in the spa or dining at a variety of restaurant that please every member of the family.
Rooms With a View
Whether you are booking into Q1 for a extravagant escape or using it as your base to explore the Gold Coast, rest assured that there is an accommodation option to suit your needs. You cannot go wrong with Q1’s range of one, two and three bedroom apartments, which are designed to suit everyone from the business person ducking in and out of town to the adventurous family more intent on exploring rather than relaxing. With modern living at the crux of each room, you will find it easy to settle in thanks to gourmet equipped kitchens, a private spa bath and enviable open plan living.
For a Q1 experience that is steeped in luxury, the penthouse suites are your answer. Setting the standard for luxury is the incomparable Presidential Penthouse, a deluxe holiday apartment compromised of features one can only dream of.
Think a personal sky-high indoor pool, floor to ceiling glass windows and unsurpassed views of the surrounding Pacific Ocean and Gold Coast hinterland. Couple this with a Swedish sauna, home cinema, four double sized bedrooms and games room, and it is easy to see why you will never want to leave this epitome of luxury accommodation.
Boredom Be Banished
While the allure of Surfers Paradise may only be a short stroll away, you will find yourself absorbed by the various activities on offer within Q1’s own walls. This family-friendly destination not only offers the inimitiable SkyPoint (more on that soon), but numerous facilties that will keep the kids entertained in a safe and enjoyable environment. The QDesk is your one-stop-shop for all the information you need on tours, attractions, activities and transfers to the Gold Coast’s premium tourist destinations.
For hours of entertainment, Q1 is home to an exclusive private cinema for guests to experience. Simply lodge a prior booking with Reception, and the whole family can enjoy the film of your choice in comfort. The resort facilities are also home to a games room especially for the kids, with a wide selection of arcade games for the ultimate source of entertainment.
Q1 doesn’t just cater to the kids – it also has plenty at hand to keep the bigger children among us entertained. The famous Q1 spa is a mecca of relaxation for weary travellers, while the onsite hairdressing and beauty therapy facilities will keep you looking and feeling your best during your Gold Coast trip. Whether you are planning a trip to Q1 in search of adventure, romance or serenity, it is bound to be discovered within the resort.
Go Sky High
When you are not relaxing in your plush accommodation or exploring the exquisite spa on site, be sure to venture to Level 77 to experience SkyPoint, Australia’s only beachside observation deck. With breathtaking views, SkyPoint has rightly gained a reputation as one of the Gold Coast’s premium tourist hotspots. If you are stuck for date night ideas, you are sure to impress with a visit to SkyPoint; treat your loved one to the stunning sunset views, before reserving a table at one of Q1’s fine dining options. For a truly luxe night out, book a suite and party the night away above the Surfers Paradise skyline.
A trip to the Gold Coast would not be complete without experiencing some of the city’s finest dining options. With Q1, you will have immediate access to some of the Coast’s top quality cuisine without having to venture! Asami Teppanyaki is the ideal destination for a special family dinner – the kids can relish in the theatrics of the live teppanyaki cooking, while adults can enjoy the premium Japanese dishes being served (and thrown!). For a more laidback Japanese offering, Osaka Kaiten Sushi delivers a tasty array of traditional and modern cuisine skillfully crafted by their master sushi chef.
If upmarket pub grub is more your style, Q1 is home to both Longboards Eatery and Three Kings Pizza, which offer a gourmet incarnation of the classics. At Longboards, think gourmet burgers with quality ingredients, all washed down with a craft beer bar that sits poolside at the resort. While Three Kings Pizza may be new to the Q1 block, it oozes the signature Q1 stamp of luxury thanks to its delicious designer pizza creations. For a special occasion that demands the most lavish of settings, SkyPoint Bistro and Bar is your answer. Dining sky high above the thriving heart that is the Gold Coast? It does not get any better than that!
Take a step back, put your feet up or get out and explore at Q1, one of Australia’s premium accommodation options. You will find everything you are looking for – and more – at Q1 Resort and Spa.
