Fresh, funky, and fabulous; QT on the Gold Coast is a chic and bold resort that is a truly unique product in an over-saturated market.
Gold Coast accommodation is available in abundance – after all it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia, however, QT still manages to deliver a resort unlike any other. As soon as you step into the foyer there is a collision of luxury accommodation, retro styling, and stellar customer service that is alive with atmosphere.
The resort breaks the stereotype of typical accommodation, but does so without sacrificing quality. Staff are adorned in quaint uniforms matching the 60’s and 70’s vibe, art deco furniture is placed creatively throughout the open plan setting complimented by artist-crafted features, and colourful and trendy art is splashed across the walls highlighted by bold custom lighting giving the hotel a contagious charm.
This styling extends to the beautiful restaurants, café, and bar in QT. Bazaar is famed throughout the Gold Coast as one of the top locations for fine dining, and like all things QT it’s delivered with a twist. The restaurant has the layout of a traditional marketplace, with stalls of different cuisine available in bursts of colour around the room.
Fragrant pizza smells waft from the wood fire oven, while vibrant organic salads sit next to classic pot roasts, Asian woks are stationed in the corner next to pedestals of seafood. Chefs are peppered around the room manning the tantalising cuisine eager to describe the intricacies of their creations and offer their input on wine pairings and cocktail recommendations. Of course the experience culminates with the quirky and friendly wait staff who ensure every step of your dining adventure is perfect.
If you prefer your dining experience to be a mixture of entertainment and gustation then Yamagen Sushi and Teppanyaki Bar is a fine choice. The Yamagen experience is a display of the marriage between skill, dedication, and performance as the chefs chop, slice, fling, and marinate an array of meats from rib eye fillets and chicken breast to Moreton Bay bugs and Atlantic salmon to kangaroo and tofu before they hit the sizzling plate in front of them to be cooked to what you deem as perfection.
Casual dining is also on offer at Fixx that delivers a mouth-watering organic menu teasing guests with an indulgent treat selection. Using fresh seasonal ingredients the chefs create both classic and untraditional dishes to inspire the senses for breakfast and lunch. Stop by from early morning until 3pm for something on the go, a light snack, complete meal, or full bodied coffee with meringue or rocky road slice while overlooking the crystal clear waters of the pool.
Gold Coast nightlife starts at the Stingray bar. Set in a Californian Baja theme that marries in perfectly with the Gold Coast, Stingray offers ocean views, a well curated cocktail list that incorporates many of the 50 in house tequilas, and a sultry candle lit sex appeal. The bar boasts an array of Mexican inspired cuisine from acclaimed hot wings to a slow, spit roasted Cuban pork belly taco, but of course have options for the healthy minded. It is considerations such as these that make Stingray more than just your average hotel watering hole.
On top of the culinary pleasures you will enjoy, QT also comes equipped with the luxurious SpaQ offering services and treatments to soothe the mind, body, and soul as the three align and ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation are achieved. Well qualified therapists intuitively personalise their treatments to provide the maximum benefit and appointments can be made without a particular treatment in mind, so when you arrive you can consult with your therapist as to what you need and desire in that moment.
While boasting the atmosphere, styling, and cuisine of a unique breed of accommodation, QT still offers 5 star staples including a fully equipped gym, valet parking, tours desk, porter service, resort shop, conference facilities, 24 hour reception and room service, dry cleaning and laundry services and beautiful outdoor pool and spa.
It is among the impeccably designed 297 rooms that you will find unique touches that you don’t expect but truly appreciate. As you walk into your suite you will find brightly coloured his and her thongs and beach bags that beckon you towards the golden sand beaches. However guests beware, if you sample the bed's comfort first, your dreams of an evening on the beach may lay (pun intended) in ruins. QT beds have claimed more than one beach afternoon in favour of a nap or in room movie as these rectangles of fluffy cloud like consistency seem to possess mystical powers that impress even the most fussy of sleeper.
QT supplies all the style and glamour one could need for a lifetime, however, if you are a glamour hog, then step outside into the world of Surfers Paradise beach glitz. You are within walking distance of the world class beaches, amazing shopping, fantastic restaurants, and the stellar nightlife, which of course starts in QT itself.
If wine, food, fashion, art, and culture interest you, you will be blown away by what QT deliver. A touch of quirk mixed with a heaping of friendly and attentive customer service, stirred through with a dash of designer style and iced with an eclectic mix of palatable cuisine and you have yourself a QT holiday. Serve with a sprinkling of happy family and enjoy.
