The Emerald Surfers Paradise – the Dream of Any Overseas Budget Traveller

Are you travelling to the Gold Coast of Australia and planning on staying for some time? We hope you’re staying long enough to acquire some incredible experiences in the Australian style. For all the above reasons, The Emerald Surfers Paradise Hotel is, indeed, the dream of any overseas budget traveller.

We do not just offer some rooms for rent! We are committed to making your stay here memorable! Here are four things that represent the greatest gains with us:

1. Serviced Apartments with an Incredible Panoramic View

All our serviced apartments have two bedrooms including an en-suite with spa off the master bedroom and a main bathroom. Thus, you and your family or partner can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere right there, in your private accommodation setting.

All apartments have a full kitchen: A stove, fridge, and all the necessary cooking utensils. As an overseas budget traveller, you may feel the need to adapt. So, you will be able to deposit food, make your coffee or even cook food during these change days.

Plus, every apartment has three balconies, placing you in a sort of surrounding view of the area.

By the way! The view is stunning since the resort is right on a canal waterway of the Nerang River. Can you picture yourself sitting on a balcony, enjoying the sun while watching the rhythmic bouncing of kayaks?

2. Fantastic Options for Water Activities

Now, you may be thinking that watching kayaks is not all you’ve expected from a coast, and you are right! There are many more fun opportunities than that! For instance, you can enjoy our heated pool at any hour of the day, savouring the calming sense of it.

Our hotel is also only a 7-8 minutes walk from the heart of Surfers Paradise. Whether you are a passionate surfer or just keen on surfing, this is the place to be.

Known for its consistent waves, the Gold Coast hosts lots of international surfing competitions. So, you can watch incredible surfing performances and learn from the best. If you are a surfing novice, though, this is the perfect place to start learning. There are lots of trainers who will be happy to pass on the art of surfing.

You can also hire a boat or a jet-ski and start off on an exciting journey on water. Or, you could be adventurous with themed parks and whale watching cruises. For all these attractions, we’ve teamed up with Experience Oz to offer you the best options for entertainment and pricing.

3. Sparkling City Life

The Emerald Surfers Paradise is just minutes away from the buzzing life of the Gold Coast. Lots of LGBTIQ community members who’ve experienced it, said they’ve especially enjoyed the local scenery, nightclubs, and gay-friendly activities.

There are all sorts of entertainment, and they are available throughout the entire year. Concerts, themed productions, cabaret, acrobatics or magic shows, you name it! There’s something for all sorts of tastes, ages, and pockets. As an overseas budget traveller, you will be able to enjoy most of these attractions.

As for food and drink experiences, the choices are almost endless. You can always sit by the river on the balconies and enjoy a tasty BBQ. Or, you may check the restaurants in the neighbourhood. There are so many dining experiences that they provide! You could try seafood buffets, dinner cruises, dinner with live entertainment, etc.

The nightclubs are also quite dazzling, and if you’re not paying attention, they may even become addictive.

Finally, The Emerald Surfers Paradise is 5 minutes away from the Fortitude Valley Centre and Shopping Mall. So, there’s your perfect place to do real or window shopping for food, clothes or souvenirs.

4. Longer Stay Amenity for Overseas Budget Travellers

Apart from our decent pricing system in general, our hotel offers discounts for longer stays: From $89 a night or $600 per week.

Up to 3 months rentals in winter are also more profitable as they spare you of a formal lease and a great bond.

If you would like to know more about offers and discounts, please give us a call at +61 7 5538 2678 to get up-to-date information.
