7 Awesome Reasons to Choose Paradise Resort for Your Next Family Holiday

7 Awesome Reasons to Choose Paradise Resort for Your Next Family Holiday

If there is one thing that most parents can agree on, it’s that after the last couple of years, a family holiday is exactly what we all need! If your family’s idea of a good time includes beautiful beaches, a waterpark, poolside activities, a kids or teen club, and some time for parents to unwind and relax, then we highly recommend Paradise Resort on the Gold Coast! My family and I recently had the pleasure of a weekend stay (I’ll be sharing a separate post very soon detailing all of the awesome renovations and improvements that they’ve recently undertaken) but for now, here’s 7 very good reasons to choose Paradise Resort for your next family holiday.

Voted Australia’s Best Family Hotel/Resort

That’s right…the much-loved family resort that has been voted Australia’s best family hotel/resort 10+ years in a row, is now even better!

Rooms for all Budgets/Family Sizes

Don’t you just hate it when you go to book a holiday and they don’t have an option that matches your family size? With rooms big enough to accommodate up to 8 people, even large families can find a room that suits their needs. Paradise Resort offers 22 different styles of rooms, making it easy for families to pick clean and comfortable accommodation that suits their needs and their budget!


Situated just 250m from the iconic Surfer’s Paradise Beach, and a 15-minute walk to tourist hot-spot Cavill Avenue, Paradise Resort is perfectly positioned if you want to explore the local attractions on the beautiful Gold Coast.

Stay and Play

If you book your stay between Paradise Resort’s biggest sale period March 1st – 10th April 2022, you’ll also enjoy a bonus $200 Stay and Play vouchers (if you book 3 nights) and $400 (if you book 6 nights) to spend on local tours and attractions with Experience Oz. The Stay and Play package is part of a government funded initiative to welcome back interstate visitors to Queensland, so you do need to be from NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, NT, and WA (QLD excluded) to take advantage of this offer and book your travel between the following dates:

  • 1st March – 31st March 2022
  • 14 April – 16 September 2022
  • 3rd October – 30 November 2022

You can find the list of local tours and attractions you can spend your Stay and Play vouchers here, but our favourite, tried and tested recommendations for an awesome day out are;

  • Wet n’ Wild
  • Warner Bros Movie World
  • Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
  • Topgolf
  • Paradise Country
  • Australian Outback Spectacular Heartland
  • Aquaduck Gold Coast City Tour and River Cruise
  • Dreamworld
  • White Water World
  • Skypoint

Entertainment for the Whole Family

It doesn’t matter what age your children are, Paradise Resort offers something for everyone. Everyday has a new calendar of activities that families can take part in including free activities around the pool such as jelly eating competitions, belly flop competitions and the ever-popular dunk tank! There are also daily trivia games beside the pool that the whole family can take part in, as well as live shows on the outdoor stage. The outdoor movie is always a hit with families in the evening to wind the kids down before bed, after a busy day playing in the pool and waterpark!

Other activities that you can book into at the resort include laser tag, rock climbing, craft activities, cooking classes, paint and sip classes, and yoga to name just a few!

Kids Club/Teen Club

Paradise Resort is often described as ‘heaven for kid, paradise for parents.’ That’s because, unlike some holidays that can leave you feeling exhausted and like you need a holiday to get over the holiday, at Paradise Resort parents can also get a much-needed break.

Paradise Resort run a fully supervised kids club (0-12 years) and a teen club (13-17 years) where kids can go and meet new friends and have fun, giving parents some all important me-time! Best yet, you won’t feel guilty about taking some time for yourself or going on a date night, because they’ll be begging you to let them go back!

Caters to all Food Tastes

Even fussy eaters will find something they like at one of the 4 eateries on-site.

Rooms also include a fridge, kettle, and microwave, etc so you can prepare snacks in comfort of your own room if you prefer, or use one of the BBQ facilities situated around the pool to cook up your own feast.

My family love the continental buffet breakfast at the Penguin restaurant, and I can also highly recommend the Toblerone cocktail and the Mojito – so be sure to check the bar out too!

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
