Gold Class Luxperience
If you fancy an intimate, totally indulgent experience with a bird’s eye view to forever, Helen Flanagan has the answer.
Fingers crossed the next time you’re offered an upgrade, it’s to a suite. Well let’s not muck around. Make it the Presidential Suite, where a come-hither confection of palatial, plush decadence is normally reserved for the Kardashians, a business tycoon … or just you and a loved one!
Fling open the double doors of your level 28, 228 square metre ritzy abode at the Marriott on the Gold Coast and forget it’s not really yours. And remember. You’re here for a great, make that grand time, not a long time.
Ogle at the panoramic views of the world-class coastline. Serious sighs when you realise there’s a living room, a kitchen with all the necessary accoutrements to service the formal dining room with its 10 place settings, an oversize master bedroom and ensuite with spa plus a powder room for guests who drop in. In addition a personal butler is available on request - of course, and if you wish to catch a few stray rays, a poolside day bed is yours.
A closer look at the interior reveals sumptuous sofas and chairs covered in opulent fabrics, complemented by striking artworks and thought-provoking coffee table books. The four-poster bed in the master bedroom has bright white sheets topped with fluffy down pillows and a doona you’d like to dive into - immediately.
This epitome of 5-star elegance sets a new benchmark in luxury accommodation.
And there’s more, so much more, at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, which is located in the heart of the city and is within easy reach of pristine beaches, fashionable shopping precincts and picturesque hinterland valleys.
Highlights include an aquatic playground with private sandy beaches, a freshwater pool, lava tube waterslide, spas, cascading waterfalls and a five metre deep saltwater lagoon which is home to over 400 tropical fish, including purple tangs, moon wrasse, red goat, banner and angel fish. And yes, you can swim with them.
It’s easy to see why Citrique’s seafood buffet receives plaudits for every dish, similarly Benihana Japanese Steakhouse & Sake Bar. Sit around a teppan plate (table) and be prepared for surprises as clever award-winning trickster teppanyaki chefs, present traditional Japanese fare in front of you.
It’s no exaggeration but pampering doesn’t get any better for him and her at Lattouf Hair & Day Spa. The dream team of highly specialised massage therapists, nail technicians and stylists with put a bounce in your step and ensure you glow with bedazzling radiance.
Even a lavish luxperience must come to an end, but not before sinking into the sofa one last time and celebrating with a glass of champagne as you wonder what being rich and famous would really be like. Dreams are free after all.
