So if you are looking to book a getaway soon, read on to see why the QT Gold Coast should be at the top of your list.

5 reasons to visit QT Gold Coast

Convenient location? Check! Sun, sand and a little downtime are just a short walk away from the hotel. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, complimentary retro bikes are available at the QT so you can cruise up and down the Gold Coast strip.

2A gluten-free breakfast bar

Bazaar is the buffet of all buffets, and much like the name describes, a marketplace of all things food. With a chef that makes omelettes just the way you like ‘em, it’s no wonder it was voted Best Breakfast Buffet on the Gold Coast. Along with a smoothie bar; fresh fruit bar, the “interactive kitchen” as they like to call it, even has a gluten-free breakfast bar, which gets a big thumbs up from Bianca.

And if cocktails are more your thing, (for breakfast, lunch and dinner), then the iconic Stingray Lounge will get you shaking those marracas in no time, courtesy of their SoCal-Mexican inspired décor and impressive tequila display.

Need we mention Yamagen’s famous Teppanyaki BBQ Grill or the hotel’s organic café; Fixx? We’ll spare you the extra food FOMO, but safe to say it’s as mouth watering as their Instagram feed suggests.

3A spa like no other

If you’re looking for serious pampering, look no futher. The SpaQ has an array of unique treatments; from the Pure Gold massage, complete with an organic wild thyme foot scrub and rose oil facial, to the coffee and seal kelp contour wrap.

4Rooms with a view

From the luxe bath soaps to the robe and slippers, or even the impressively stocked mini bar, the sophisticated, cosy and fun décor of the rooms are truly unique and adhere to the hotel’s style. With views overlooking the beach you’ll stare wide eyed at the endless horizon in front of you (or the enviable surrounding real estate).

5Great service and great vibes

The 1920’s beach-club vibe, complete with retro surfboards and vintage panel vans, really takes the cake. We can almost hear the deck chairs calling, basking in the Gold Coast sun, waiting for you to relax and unwind (did we mention the complimentary iced tea and homemade lemonade station?)

Whatever is it you came for, be it a staycation or a sun-filled holiday, the staff are there to make sure your experience is unlike any other hotel stay you’ve had before. Which leaves us with one question: where do we check in?
