THREE PROPERTIES, THREE CHANCES TO REDISCOVER HOW FUN VACATIONING ON THE GOLD COAT CAN BE. THEY SAY IT’S LESS ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE AND MORE ABOUT WHO YOU’RE WITH, BUT SPEND JUST ONE NIGHT IN ONE OF THESE ULTIQA PROPERTIES AND WE THINK YOU’LL FIND THAT THE DESTINATION CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
THE COUPLES’ RETREAT: AIR ON BROADBEACH
Perched high above the heart of Broadbeach, these single and multi-level apartments provide the perfect destination for a romantic respite. Cushy bedrooms and living spaces with a private balcony or terrace mean you and your special someone will never have to leave – well, at least not until reality calls you back down to earth.
The crisp blues and whites of the Gold Coast shoreline are echoed in
the interior decorating and the rooms are designed with both functionality and luxury in mind – fully-equipped kitchens, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi provide that all-important ‘home away from home’ feel. With a swimming pool, sauna and tennis court also available to guests, there’s always something to do – and, when all else fails, you can hit the beach or the enigmatic Broadbeach strip for dinner or a round of cocktails. All this plus breathtaking panoramic ocean and hinterland views?
Sounds like couples’ therapy done so, so right.
THE FAMILY GETAWAY: FRESHWATER POINT
Close to the action but still perfectly peaceful, Freshwater Point Resort on the outskirts of Broadbeach is the ideal destination for your next family getaway. One-, two- and three-bedroom self-contained luxury apartments provide you with a jumping off point for some of the best attractions the Gold Coast has to offer – Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Dreamworld, Wet’n’Wild, Movie World, and Sea World, just to name a few.
More ‘low-key’ activities nearby include kayaking and snorkelling with Seaway Kayaking Tours and the picturesque Mount Tamborine, offering tons of tracks and natural pools to take a mid-hike dip in. The resort itself is just a short walk away from restaurants, cafes and shopping, and a couple of minutes to the beach by car. Alternatively, you can keep things close to home by spending the day by one of the two heated pools, warming up in the sauna and then heading back to your apartment to bask in the air-con.
Whether you’re feeling up for anything or down for a morning sleep-in, Freshwater Point has you sorted.
THE GIRLS’ TRIP: BEACH HAVEN ON BROADBEACH
Gather your gang, clear the schedule and get ready for a weekend to remember at Beach Haven on Broadbeach. Choose from a one-, two-, three-bedroom or a huge three-bedroom sub-penthouse apartment and settle in for a fabulous few days with friends. Situated in the heart of Broadbeach, Beach Haven offers easy access to the best that the bustling postcode has to offer – cafes, restaurants, shopping and nightlife are all at your front door.
There’s no shortage of rooftop bars and swanky watering holes for your Friday or Saturday night crawl, and a ton of cafes (with plenty of smashed avo) to refuel the next morning. In the hotel itself, you’ve got access to Ultiqa’s trademark facilities like sauna, tennis court, spa and gymnasium, plus the choice to lounge by one of the two heated pools or take the short walk to the beach and have some fun in the sun. Then, head back up to your apartment for an afternoon kip or juicy conversation over wine and cheese – and try to come up with an excuse to stay for just one more night!
