So, you’ve decided on the Gold Coast for your summer holiday this year, but you really want to give Surfers Paradise a miss. Where do you go? Whether you’re travelling with your partner, family or friends, I would definitely recommend booking accommodation in Broadbeach.

Is this a new discovery? Not at all – in fact, Broadbeach has been a favourite seaside holiday destination since the 1950s. But perhaps it’s so good that the regulars and the locals were keeping it to themselves!

Located north of Mermaid Beach, and below Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach is a real delight, combining pristine beaches with the Gold Coast’s amazing canal system. This could be why it’s such a popular destination for water sport enthusiasts!

It’s The Perfect Location

The area tends to appeal to all kinds of visitors, as it really does have something for everyone, including a welcome sense of calm and sophistication. Logistically, it’s also the ideal spot to stay if you’re if you’re headed for the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

There’s a sense of getting away from it all, yet you can easily get onto the Gold Coast Highway to visit the theme parks and other major attractions.

There’s a good selection of accommodation in Broadbeach Gold Coast, with some excellent luxury resorts, including Peppers Broadbeach, the Mantra Sierra Grand, Aruba Surf Resort and the Phoenician Resort.

Hottest Accommodation Deals

The Phoenician Resort is particularly appealing, as it manages to combine the most luxurious accommodation and resort facilities with the hottest deals on the coast!

Whether you are staying for business or pleasure, a weekend or a week, everything about this AAA 4 Star rated resort ticks all the boxes.

Convenience is a key one, of course, being just a few metres from the patrolled surf beach, shops, cafes and restaurants. In fact, if you’re planning to stay around this location for the duration of your holiday, there’s really no need to even bring the car!

If you do there is, of course, secure undercover parking, as well as a tour desk and other helpful facilities.

Close To Best Restaurants

Broadbeach is a bit of a foodies paradise, being home to some of the Gold Coast’s best restaurants. But if you don’t want to dine out every day, that’s not a problem, as the Phoenician Resort apartments include fully equipped kitchens featuring top quality European appliances.

This is extremely helpful if you’re travelling with children, of course, as you can save money by eating in.

While most of the accommodation in Broadbeach includes a pool, you are well and truly spoilt at the Phoenician Resort, with not one, but two swimming pools, one indoors! There’s also a spa, sauna, gymnasium, games room and shady barbecue spots the family will just love.

As you would expect from this benchmark resort, the quality of the one and two-bedroom apartments is simply outstanding. The biggest plus in my mind is the space. Having stayed in too many poky hotel rooms, the luxury of having a whole apartment is hard to beat.

Such Spacious Accommodation

The queen-sized one-bedroom apartment is perfect for a couple but even so, also includes a sofa bed for any unexpected guests! Just like the larger apartments, it includes a fully equipped kitchen, air-conditioning and a spacious balcony.

The two-bedroom apartment is great for families or friends, as it includes a queen-sized bedroom, a twin room plus a sofa bed, with a separate living room and dining area, and two bathrooms.

All apartments feature those little essentials, like private laundry facilities, Austar, and security system.

Excellent Service

Of course, we make our holiday choices based on many factors: price, location, convenience; facilities, and so on. But I think service plays an important part, too. We all like to be made to feel welcome. And I must say they do that well at the Phoenician Resort – whatever you need, it never seems to be too much trouble.

Right now the Phoenician Resort has some of the best deals on accommodation in Broadbeach Gold Coast – even for the busy summer holiday period. For example, stay for a week in a one-bedroom bedroom apartment during October or November, and you’ll only pay for 5 nights!

A big bonus here is that November is whale watching season on the Gold Coast, so what better excuse do you need? There are several tours on offer, including the Sea World Whale Watch cruise, which includes a $1.5 million on-board Whale Theatre.

If music is more your thing, be sure to catch Opera in the Park, in Broadbeach, on October 1. Practically on the beach, the venue is Kurrawa Park, just 300 metres from the Phoenician Resort.

Or, if Christmas is your favourite time to get away, jump online now and make the most of the resort’s Early Bird Xmas Sale. It’s too good to miss!
