How to perfect the art of relaxation and wellness at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove

The Queensland Life

It is easy to become consumed by your daily grind, moving from one target to the next with extreme precision: the work project, the school run, the never ending housework. While it feels good to conquer your everyday routine, in the end, it just simply feels better – and is more beneficial to your wellness – to take a minute to unwind and relax. That’s why we’ve designed a luxury package that helps you practice the art of true relaxation while enjoying up to 25% off your stay.

Plus, we want you to focus entirely on ‘flopping and dropping’ by our Lagoon Beach Pool, so we’ve come up with our top tips for having a truly relaxing break while staying with us in Sanctuary Cove. 

How to bask in the perfect balance of accessibility and seclusion.

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort is located just 45 minutes north of the Gold Coast – allowing you to leave the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast and bask in seclusion, while still being close by to the airport and the accessibility of the city.

We have everything you need in one place so you won’t need to lift a finger – unless you plan to get it painted in Champions Day Spa.

The Marine Village is located less than a one-minute walk from the Resort and has access to an array of restaurants and a variety of speciality shops including fashion boutiques, art galleries, a chocolate shop and a Village Theatre.

Champions Day Spa has a full range of specialist massage, facials, body wraps, exfoliation and packages as well as general beauty therapy treatments such as waxing, manicures and pedicures.

Insider Tip: Aiming to feel totally rejuvenated by the end of your trip? Visit Raw Espresso in the Marine Village for a Smoked Salmon Breakfast from 7 to 11:30am – it’s oh-so-delicious and way too healthy to make you feel even an ounce of guilt.

Take advantage of your exclusive use of the Sanctuary Cove Golf & Country Club.

Located a mere 1km away from the Resort, the Country Club is a phenomenal hub of health and wellbeing resources and facilities with a state-of-the-art, fully equipped gym. The Club is also home to a Pilates studio, swimming pool, sauna, massage centre, outdoors work out area, personal trainers, fully-serviced kid’s area, function spaces, tennis courts, golfing driving range and restaurant.

Take in Queensland’s natural beauty with rainforest walks.

Mount Tamborine is the perfect place to reconnect with nature with 12 walking tracks in total and a number of lookouts including Cedar Creek Falls, which boasts the only swimmable rock pools on the mountain.

Play a leisurely game of Golf.

Sanctuary Cove is one of Australia's premier golfing destinations with two internationally-renowned championship golf courses — The Pines and The Palms.  A recent multi-million dollar rejuvenation of the golfing amenities has paved the way for state-of-the-art facilities and newly configured fairways to further enhance the Sanctuary Cove golfing experience. A huge draw-card for relaxing retreats - the only way to play on the championship courses is via membership of being a guest of the hotel.

Eat from the land in The Fireplace.

The Fireplace is the Resort’s signature dining destination, home to a wood-fire oven that starts from 2pm every afternoon to ensure the oven is at the right temperature before the restaurant opens. The menu is infused with locally sourced and sustainable produce, and garnished with herbs grown in the restaurant’s own herb garden.

Flop & drop by the Resort’s one-acre Lagoon Beach Pool.

Swim in the crystal blue water of the lagoon or float around on a colourful beanbags watching the day pass you by, the choice is yours. Alternatively lay back in your sun lounger watching your children play in the sand while you drink InterContinental coconuts and live the InterContinental Life. Now that’s true relaxation.

Our warmest offer yet invites you to rediscover the art of relaxation with InterContinental’s ultimate escape destination offering up to 25% off stays between 15 March 2018 and 30 September 2018.
