Paradise Resort Gold Coast


Paradise Resort Gold Coast was recently voted Australia’s Best Family Resort for the 10th year in a row.

Yes, you heard that right – 10 years.  And if you’ve never been, then now is the time to book in. 

Paradise Resort is one of those must-visit places for every family, regardless of how old the kiddies, and is renowned as a ‘cruise ship on land’. 

This place is a mecca of holiday fun with an ice-skating rink, waterpark, kids’ club, laser tag, daily activities, and loads of entertainment offered all year round, not to mention it’s only a few short metres from the iconic Surfer’s Paradise beach.  

Plus, the resort has recently undergone a major renovation, with new bar and dining outlets and added plus an online ordering system so you can order your meals and cocktails from your poolside lounge.

There are also heaps of amazing activities, including a miniature train, teen zone for the older kids and, coming later this year, is an adults-only lap pool and lounge bar. Take my money now!

So, while the resort is famous for its onsite Kids Club, which caters for children 0-12years, the newly added teen zone ensures children 13-17 are taken care of as well so that parents can also have a much-needed break.

The resort offers a range of hotel style accommodation throughout its 360 guest rooms catering for families as large as up to eight, including the popular themed Junior and King Bunkhouse rooms which feature brightly painted bunk beds and family rooms with a second smaller bedroom.  

The next stage of upgrades will deliver 66 new deluxe rooms in Dusty’s Digs by mid-2021. The deluxe rooms have been fitted with thoughtful little extras such as a microwave and toaster, USB charging points, a 55inch Smart TV to keep you connected to your favourite Netflix series and complimentary WiFi throughout.
