Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Surfers Paradise

A glittering beacon of everything the Gold Coast embodies, Surfers Paradise is no longer just for party animals.
High-rises, sleek stays and luxury accommodation in Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise could be the Gold Coast’s favourite playground – and it’s a gong well deserved. This is the feel-good (unofficial) capital of the Gold Coast and this energetic epicentre boasts a world-famous collection of nightlife and luxury crash pads. It isn't all glitz and glam though, and there is a cultural side to Surfers Paradise too, thanks to Arts Centre Gold Coast and Urban Paradise, a niche art gallery and artist-run co-op.

On arrival, your first move should be dropping your bags at your Surfers Paradise accommodation and then hitting the town to see exactly what makes this suburb so electric. To get your bearings though, ascend to the 77th and 78th levels of the Q1 Building. The SkyPoint Observation Deck has unbeatable panoramas of the Gold Coast, and those looking to really push their limits can scale the SkyPoint Climb, a 90-minute climb that takes you to the very top of the building.

And because this is Queensland, the Surfers Paradise beaches are magnets for surfers, swimmers and those wanting a hit of Vitamin D. Every beach-goer knows that dips in the ocean and sessions soaking up the sun can make for hungry work, so catching waves can be done in between trips to beachside kiosks and the outlets lining the foreshore. On that note, the dining scene in Surfers Paradise is excellent and there are options covering fine-dining establishments, beachside cafés, local restaurants and a range of international cuisines. The Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets happen Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights and are worth a pre- or post-dinner wander. 

Similarly, the accommodation offerings have every budget, group and style well taken care of. High-rise hotels and beautiful apartments are Surfers Paradise’s bread and butter, but boutique rentals, five-star resorts and budget-friendly stays can also be found.
