The Gold Coast has evolved to become much more than just a tourist destination; it’s a paradise for wellness, relaxation, culture and nature, writes Cathy Finch.
REJUVENATE AT A BATHHOUSE
Ground Bathhouse offers a blissful soaking experience surrounded by nature, incorporating a body healing ground – a space where practitioners knead and ply their clients into a state of heavenly bliss.
RELAX AT A BEACH CLUB
Located at Marina Mirage on Main Beach, La Luna is Australia’s first floating beach club. For a different take on relaxation, this luxurious immersion may be more your style, leaving out the need to plunge into cold water. This kind of immersion is one of opulence and pleasure, where attendants, waiters and sommeliers take care of your every need.
Adjoining the beach club, MARE Restaurant promises to lead you through a range of dining masterpieces with a modern Italian and Mediterranean-inspired lunch menu showcasing light flavours and locally sourced produce.
EAT COMFORT FOOD
Food to many is another art of relaxation, and the Gold Coast is spoilt for choice. Bam Bam Bakehouse on Mermaid Beach is a pastry lover’s paradise, with the star of the show the humble croissant.
Indulging your cultural side is also an alternative, with Home of the Arts (HOTA) located nearby, surrounded by parklands in Surfers Paradise. HOTA offers a diverse program of events including theatre, dance, music, festivals and workshops, and incorporates an art gallery with six levels of exhibition space.
Palette restaurant on the ground floor serves an art-inspired, elegant High Tea. My tiered selection of sweet and savoury delights includes a ‘POP’ tart, following an Andy Warhol theme, and is served with tea and a sparkling glass of Veuve Clicquot 80.
Go and try these experiences for yourself and see if you agree that there is no place like the Gold Coast for relaxation and rejuvenation.
