Gold Coast holidays are essential.
You need to take them because they keep your mind and body rejuvenated, ready to take on new challenges. You also need them to forge better bonds and relationships with the people you love, from trips with the family to holiday fun with friends.
One of the ways to make sure you have the absolute best time on your holiday is to book the perfect Gold Coast accommodation. With the wide array of options to choose from, how can you tell the best one from the lot? Look for these five desirable qualities.
- Strategic location.
An ideal accommodation in the Gold Coast would be strategically situated to some of the best destinations in Queensland. Proximity to, for instance, the iconic Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, would score points with the kids — and any animal-loving friend you’ve brought along to your trip. Queensland’s beloved and heritage-listed zoological garden houses cuddly koalas, adorable kangaroos, colourful birds, and a host of other amazing wildlife.
Other than proximity to the iconic wildlife sanctuary, the beachside suburb of Coolongatta should also be accessible from your accommodation. At Coolongatta, enjoy the walking trails around Greenmount Hill to Rainbow Bay, or you can hang about Point Danger and catch sight of whales.
- Patrolled surf beaches.
Fun and relaxation would not be complete if you did not factor in your safety, and the safety of the people you are travelling with, particularly kids. Whether you’re all heading out to Snapper Rocks or taking a few steps right outside your beachfront accommodation, you should feel protected.
So before booking holiday apartments, Gold Coast travellers should consider access to security services.
- Tranquility — without complete isolation.
What is a holiday without some peace and quiet? Sure. You want to be able to socialise with other travellers, but you also need moments of tranquility. Your accommodation in the Gold Coast should offer the best of both worlds.
- Modern amenities, with a homey atmosphere.
Your holiday accommodations in the Gold Coast can feel exactly like home, and still provide you with all the little luxuries you will find in any hotel. Consider fully self-contained apartments, with sufficient space for an entire family, outdoor heated pool or spa, and all the usual resort amenities.
- Rave reviews by previews guests.
Finally, when the accommodation you are considering has been given the “thumbs up” by previews guests, you can expect the finest rooms and amenities backed by the best service. When other people share their lovely experiences about the resort, it should be worth checking out (or checking into).
Booking your stay
In nearly every case you can book online, and most people will go to the large comparison sights to book their accommodation, thinking they will get the best price.
The best price may not be the best value holiday. The way to get the BEST VALUE is to go direct.
Often by booking direct with the resort you can not only get a great rate but often there are other things on offer.
Local businesses will get together and provide discounts and bonuses. Especially during traditionally quieter times so keep that in mind when planning your next holiday.
