Top Five Luxury Experiences on the Gold Coast

The Queensland Life
The Luxe Life

Travel was once a luxury, the preserve of an elite few who could afford to embark on adventures abroad. Today, this exclusivity has been largely replaced with affordable, accessible travel options. And, when it comes to products, exclusivity is increasingly difficult to achieve; there are fewer things that money can’t buy. 

Modern luxury lives in innovative and immersive experiences, it lives in the details, and that’s why the Resort’s Concierge team are forever curating precious behind-the-scenes moments that offer our guests the height of experiential luxury. Here, our Concierge team share their top five luxury experiences in Sanctuary Cove.

1. Luxury Private Yacht Trips

Queensland is iconic for its jaw-dropping coastline, so why not spend the day at sea exploring it in style with Crystal Blue Yacht Charters. Described as the ultimate ‘head-turner’, step into an 80ft superyacht complete with four bedrooms (just in case you get tired of the views), its own kitchenette and custom designer fit out in the main saloon. Now, where would you like to go?


2. Shop till you drop in Pacific Fair

Having undergone a dramatic $670 million facelift last year, Pacific Fair unveils itself as a dynamic luxury precinct, home to high-end brands including Tiffany & Co, Hermes and Christian Louboutin. It’s Queensland’s largest fashion destination with over 420 stores and counting, did we also mention that it boasts the biggest concentration of luxury brands in the whole of Australia? 

Insider Tip: Why not splurge on a souvenir from The Gold Coast, perhaps a piece from Tiffany & Co.’s new homeware collection? Or a silk twill scarf courtesy of Hermes?

Visit Pacific Fair website for more details.


3. The Height Of Luxury with O’Reilly

O’Reilly’s Hot Balloon Tour’s will have you floating over The Gold Coast’s hinterland just in time to capture an unforgettable 7am sunrise over Tamborine Mountain, Surfer’s Paradise and beyond. Transition from the height of luxury as you disembark the balloon and discover a full Champagne breakfast waiting for you on O’Reilly’s Vineyard. Soak in the serenity of the vineyard from the grand veranda while toasting to an experience that is well worth the early wake-up call.

4. Unwind with a massage in Champions Hair and Beauty Day Spa

Named as one of the top 10 day spas on the Gold Coast and has established a leading legacy of over 20 years’ experience in all things beauty, Champions Day Spa is the pinnacle of relaxation and rejuvenation. The Spa offers a suite of luxury body and beauty treatments, including specialist massages, facials, body wraps and exfoliations. For the ultimate luxe experience, request the hot stone massage and enter a plush world of indulgence and relaxing aromatherapy.


5. Fine Dining In The Fish House

Simply put, The Fish House is in a culinary league of its own. Decorated with a multitude of awards and credited for putting Queensland on the foodies' map, the restaurant is renowned for the finest seafood restaurant in Queensland.  The Fish House sources the finest seafood available in Australia, with its fish flown in first-class from South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania on a daily basis.

Insider Tip: Seafood isn’t the only feather in The Fish House’s cap, the restaurant boasts a multi-award winning wine list with blends hand-picked from boutique producers across Australia and beyond. Celebrate in ultimate style by popping open a bottle of Salon ‘Le Mesnil’ Blanc de Blancs, it will only set you back a mere $1200.
