Long weekend luxe at Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast

As another sun filled (okay maybe a hint of showers on Saturday but full sun after then woohoo) long weekend approaches, Brisbanites prepare to flock to the infamous long white sandy beaches at the Gold Coast.

Main Beach, sitting pretty in an upmarket end of the Gold Coast, becomes a temporary home for swimmers, a few surfers, sun loungers, restaurant goers (you’ll find seafood galore) and shoppers for designer labels.

Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast holds a premium position between it all with guests enjoying the beach a few steps in front and dining and shopping a few steps behind, all without the need to take the car or cross a busy road (use the short walkway provided to hit the shops).

The Gold Coast’s only absolute beach front resort invites guests to enjoy a luxurious day by the pool with wait staff to deliver (or swim up poolside) mojito’s and bowls of loaded fries as you sit under a white shade umbrella before plunging into the heated blue pool.

Intimate seafood dinner

For dinner, guests can share an intimate seafood dinner as a couple or family at the hotel’s Oyster Bar & Grill.

We recommend starting with oysters and French champagne while watching the sun set over the resort.

To follow, the Moreton Bay Bugs with tomatoes and potatoes on the side, and their famous sticky date to finish will top off an already perfect holiday.

Catch the ocean from your room

Those who splurge for an ocean premium king room on the top floor can enjoy waking up the next morning to see the sun rise over the widespread ocean with a view unlike any other, and a hot double espresso from your own machine.

Start the day with a spa bath in your room or join the few early risers who catch the serenity of the pool and enjoy the first cooks of the day at the breakfast buffet come 7am, and be finishing off with an almond milk latte and fresh strawberry ice cream with whipped cream when the rest of the hotel flock in.

Young families can take advantage of the luxury the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast provides with attentive service and the sense of ease with all of your needs a few footsteps away.
