The Perfect Gold Coast Valentine's Day
With Valentine’s Day coming up you might be in the planning process and getting ready to spoil that special someone in your life. The Gold Coast is a favourite destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway, and with good reason.
The subtropical climate, paired famously with predominantly sunny days, and the postcard perfect coastal location with safe lifeguard patrolled beaches to enjoy, the spectacular hinterland regions to explore, and beautiful sunrises over the ocean are just the start.
There are just so many Gold Coast activities and attractions that are perfect for couples looking to enjoy some quality one on one time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We’ve put together just a few of our favourite suggestions to craft the ultimate Valentine’s Day weekend away, packed to the brim with romance and earning you all those Insta-worthy couple goal moments.
Sunrise from the sky
What better way to enjoy watching the colours of a spectacular Surfers Paradise sunrise over the sparkling Pacific Ocean than from the sky. You can float majestically over the Gold Coast city and watch as the colours of the sky transform from a twilight haze to a spectacular vibrant artwork of colour, a living canvas that truly must be seen to be believed.
Enjoy the pristine Hinterland and mountain views, take in the Gold Coast location like never before, and snuggle up with your partner as you peacefully drift through the air high above the ground. As if the balloon experience isn’t enough, Hot Air Balloon Down Under are an award winning tour company that offers all of the above plus a luxurious champagne breakfast after the flight to celebrate at the 5 star at Chelo’s, just a short drive from our Surfers Paradise holiday apartment location.
If a hot air balloon ride has always been on your bucket list, then make sure to add this to your Valentine’s Day weekend itinerary. An unbelievable experience that neither of you will forget, and an incredible sunrise together that is the epitome of romance. Just hold on tight to your phone for those cityscape shots and selfies!
Couples spa date
If you’re going to set up a decadent couples spa experience, you might as well do it in Australia’s tallest residential tower in Surfers Paradise and pair your spa session with some picture perfect Skypoint views and dining. The internationally acclaimed Q1 Day Spa is open to the public and is renowned for its unique treatments that pair together modern and traditional techniques perfectly to create the ultimate pampering experiences. Some of the massage treatment options include Swedish, aromatherapy, remedial, hot stone, and Kodo massage. You can select from a range of facials including a special Men’s Refinery facial, plus body wraps, Vichy shower, mud treatments, and more! Design your own custom sessions with a range of treatments, or choose from the incredible spa treatment packages on offer.
The Spa & Dine packages are a favourite for couples, allowing you to indulge in luxurious 90 minute treatments, and when you’re well and truly relaxed and recharged you can shoot up to the 77th floor in the ultra fast Q1 elevator and then refuel at SkyPoint Observation Deck with a dining voucher to order refreshments to enjoy with your 360 degree city, ocean, and hinterland views.
