I had the most amazing (read: laziest) weekend at the Gold Coast last weekend. I went down for a friend’s birthday and we decided to stay for some much needed rest and relaxation. The fabulous QT Hotel at Surfers Paradise intrigued me the most and they had some great offers, so there were an easy choice.
From the moment we pulled into the driveway I was excited… there was so much hustle and bustle, the ground floor is home to bar Stingray and with 50 in-house tequilas , pop-art decor and a view of the ocean, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most popular bars on the Gold Coast.
The staff are equally as quirkily dressed as the hotel is decorated. Red lips and bright shirts were the order of the day (or evening) and we checked in with backdrop of music from the bar and the promise of a fantastic weekend.
Breakfast was served in the award winning Bazaar Restaurant – An Interactive Marketplace. The kitchen is completely open plan so you can see the chefs hard at work and chat to them about the produce and food you are about to eat. Floor to ceiling glass windows reveal cabinets of premium meats and fridges full of fresh produce.
The weather was gorgeous so an afternoon by the pool meant, sun, bikini bodies, cocktails and a good book.
A much needed early night meant an in-house movie and the most amazing room service desert I’ve ever eaten… a jar layered with chocolate pudding, peanut paste and toasted gooey marshmallows…served with honeycomb and ice-cream… seriously if that had of been the only part of the weekend, I would have died a happy lady.
The bed was luxurious and comfy and the room was spacious and colourful, a perfect escape.
