New holiday ideas in Australia as Hilton Surfers Paradise opens for business

The landmark AUD$700 million Hilton Surfers Paradise complex on Queensland’s Gold Coast has officially opened its doors, making it the newest leisure property for Hilton Hotels & Resorts in Australia.

The property also becomes the first Hilton hotel in the country to offer a combination of guest rooms and holiday residences.

Martin Rinck, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide, said: “Hilton Surfers Paradise is our eighth Hilton-branded property in Australia, and is a significant milestone for the tourism industry in the Gold Coast being the first new upscale, global hotel to be built in the Gold Coast in over ten years.

“We are delighted to continue to grow the footprint of Hilton Worldwide in this important market.” 

Featuring an unprecedented range of accommodation options to suit the needs of all guests, the hotel offers a total of 169 guest rooms and 250 modern one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.

David Kelly, general manager, Hilton Surfers Paradise commented that the complex was specifically designed in response to the demand for more flexible and spacious holiday options in the area.

“The facilities at Hilton Surfers Paradise are so diverse that you can enjoy time with your family in the comfort of a spacious residence one weekend, and return another time as a couple for a romantic break and enjoy the serenity of a guest room.

“Our self-contained residences include full kitchens, laundry facilities, as well as separate living and dining spaces, and are ideal for families, groups or anyone looking beyond the traditional hotel for superb accommodation.

“Guests at our residences also have access to all the services of the hotel including in-room dining, mini bar, daily housekeeping, valet parking, 24-hour reception and concierge,” he said.
