In the epicentre of buzzing Surfers Paradise, Watermark Hotel & Spa Gold Coast is only moments from the precinct’s best shopping and dining and just metres away from the beach. But while there may be myriad reasons to get out and explore, there’s also plenty of reasons to stay in. Rooms are contemporary and comfortable; there are two stunning pools (one on the eastern side, the other on the west, so you can catch the sun at all times of day), a games room for the kids and a menu of indulgent treatments at the on-site L’Aqua Day Spa. Even if you want a night out, you needn’t leave the premises: the newly renovated Walrus Social House serves cocktails and tapas in a hip setting – it’s a current hotspot favoured by locals.
Surfers Paradise is the beating heart of the Gold Coast – it’s a heady blend of soaring skyscrapers, glitzy boutiques and buzzing nightlife. It’s just over 30 minutes by car from Coolangatta airport and the Gold Coast light rail connects this area with nearby precincts like Southport and Broadbeach. Shopping, restaurants, theme parks and, of course, the beach are all within easy distance.
