Why Broadbeach Holiday Accommodation Is Always Perfect

If you haven’t holidayed on the Gold Coast for a while you’re in for as treat; thanks to the Commonwealth Games, the region is better than ever before. The whole area, especially around Broadbeach, had a fabulous makeover in preparation for such a major sports event.

For some people, the Gold Coast is the only place they go on holiday; for others, they might have been put off by negative headlines about Surfers Paradise. But all that has changed and the region now offers an amazing holiday experience for couples and families of all ages.

Broadbeach Holiday Accommodation

Of course, one thing the Gold Coast is really famous for is the theme parks. Broadbeach holiday accommodation provides a great central location from which you can easily visit all the famous tourist attractions.

The region is also loved for its stunning beaches and one of the most family-friendly stretches of sand is right on the doorstep when you book Broadbeach holiday resorts, like the Phoenician. It also gives you easy access to Kurrawa Park, where the colourful Sunday markets are held, along with major events, such as Blues on Broadbeach.

In fact, Broadbeach holiday accommodation is well placed to please everyone, as it’s within easy walking distance of shops, entertainment and some of the Gold Coast’s best restaurants.

Perfect for Nature Lovers

What’s making Broadbeach even more popular as a holiday location at the moment is the fact that there’s a massive network of peaceful waterways, that are just perfect for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and bird watching. It’s amazing, there as much action as you want yet you can escape it all out on those waterways.

If you like water-based activities that offer a bit more adrenaline, there are plenty of those too. Broadbeach holiday resorts are also close to some of the best surf breaks in the country, as well as deep sea fishing and scuba diving charters.

Reasons Why We All Love The Phoenician Resort Apartments

It seems the Phoenician Resort apartments are not only popular with the many thousands of tourists who visit the Gold Coast every year. As well as providing the perfect location for family vacations, the apartments are attracting couples, groups and even business travellers.

The way we view accommodation is changing and, as a result, resorts like the Phoenician are reaping the rewards.

Luxury and Affordability

Before the growth of Gold Coast luxury resorts, we had the choice of hotels, motels, pubs, guest houses, caravan parks and campsites. Most commercial travellers stayed in motels or pubs, businessmen tended to favour hotels and families opted for campsites.

When the Phoenician Resort apartments opened, offering that great combination of luxury and affordability, they provided an alternative for all types of traveller. For the family with kids, the location was perfect, just 100 metres from the beach. And when the youngsters got bored with the sand and sea they could enjoy the wading pool at the resort – while Mum and Dad relaxed.

Perfect for Couples

Couples were also attracted to the resort, due to its amenities and location. With a luxurious air-conditioned one-bedroom apartment as their base, they could easily walk to local bars and restaurants, the beach, shops and entertainment. The onsite pools, gym, sauna and spa were also an incentive.

Business travellers started to realise that renting an apartment compared favourably with a hotel room; there was much more space, privacy, security plus the resort facilities themselves. In addition, the location was perfect, being just across the way from the Gold Coast Convention Centre.

Great Online Deals

Phoenician Resort apartments are also perfect for those attending shows and other events. Close to the Convention Centre and the Casino, as well as popular outdoor venue, Kurrawa Park, it’s the best of all worlds.

So whatever you’re planning to get up to on the Gold Coast, be sure to check out the deals on Phoenician Resort apartments

Broadbeach Accommodation Has Something For Everyone

A month doesn’t go by without Broadbeach being in the news, for all the right reasons! This month we’ve seen competitors and spectators starting to arrive for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, amazing musicians announced for this year’s Blues on Broadbeach and, wait for it, the launch of the first-ever Gelato Panini!

There’s always something new and exciting happening here which is why Broadbeach accommodation has become so popular with so many people.

Holiday Accommodation in Broadbeach

Holiday accommodation in Broadbeach has changed a lot over the decades. From the traditional seaside boarding houses and the area’s first ever hotel in the 1950s to B&Bs, motels, caravan parks and holiday apartments, the region has seen it all.


As the Gold Coast as a whole, and Broadbeach in particular, continues to add new events and attractions, the demand for affordable, quality Broadbeach accommodation is increasing. But so are people’s expectations. In other words, cheap doesn’t have to mean cheap!

Year-Round Discounts

With Broadbeach apartments like the Phoenician Resort offering year-round discounts on 4-Star accommodation, it’s very hard to beat. For some visitors, it means they can now afford two holidays a year; for others, it means they can actually afford a holiday.

That’s good news, too, for local businesses and tourist attractions, so it’s a win-win situation. And that’s exactly what a good seaside resort town should be.

New Services and Attractions

The Gold Coast is easy to get to by road, rail and air and offers an enormous variety of attractions to suit young and old. It’s not all theme parks, you know! Surfers, foodies, music lovers, bushwalkers and nature lovers all find a good reason to book holiday accommodation in Broadbeach.

With the many new facilities, attractions and improvements – the result of hosting the 2018 Commonwealth Games – it’s unlikely that Broadbeach accommodation will be losing its popularity any time soon.

Broadbeach Holiday Accommodation Is Booking Out Fast

The long-awaited Gold Coast Commonwealth Games are almost upon us and the atmosphere in and around Broadbeach has never been better.

The suburb is showing off its recent multi-million-dollar makeover with pride as it awaits the arrival of the thousands of athletes, officials and visitors. Has there ever been a better time to visit this amazing holiday hotspot?

Rooms Still Available

It’s no surprise then that Broadbeach holiday accommodation is getting heavily booked. As of January 31, there were still rooms available, with the occupancy rate sitting at around 66.5%. The Games start on April 4.

More than a million tickets have already been sold for Commonwealth Games events, leaving around 180,000 still available. Tourism chiefs say those last tickets will disappear quickly, along with the availability of holiday houses Broadbeach.

Broadbeach Events

Broadbeach will be one of the most popular destinations for the Games, with events being held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. Resorts like the Phoenician are only footsteps from the Centre so they will be popular.

The world’s press will also be based in and around the area, as it provides a central location close to the action.

Work just got underway on a new community green space in Broadbeach, due to be opened in time for the Games. The Star Entertainment Group has invested $1 million into the Gold Coast Bulletin Centenary Park, which sits adjacent to The Star Gold Coast (formerly Jupiters Casino).

Commonwealth Games

The canal-front park will provide a great relaxation space for families visiting the Gold Coast not only for the Commonwealth Games but also annual vacations and other events.

Broadbeach holiday accommodation has long been a hit with families and couples looking for affordable holiday luxury. Offering immediate beach access plus a massive network of waterways, the suburb has taken over from Surfers Paradise as the favourite Gold Coast destination.

Aussie Visitors Just Love Gold Coast Holiday Rentals

It seems more Aussies are choosing the Gold Coast as their favourite holiday destination – and they are spending more when they get there!

A new National Visitor Survey revealed that more than 4 million domestic tourists visited the region last year, spending $3.2 billion. That’s almost back to the previous record high of $3.25 billion set in 2008, before the Global Financial Crisis.

Responsible for 17% of the Gold Coast’s gross regional product, tourism accounts for 46,000 jobs in the region.

Self Contained Apartments

Many more of those domestic visitors also chose Gold Coast holiday rentals, enjoying the freedom and amenities of staying in self-contained apartments. For families especially, a resort apartment offers excellent value-for-money.


With Broadbeach holiday rentals such as the Phoenician Resort offering year-round deals, families that traditionally camped or stayed in motels are choosing this type of accommodation. It puts them right beside the beach and offers impressive resort facilities, including pools, spa, sauna, gym, games room and more.

Broadbeach Holiday Rentals

Broadbeach holiday rentals are also a great choice because they are conveniently located for access to the theme parks and other Gold Coast attractions. Even without a car, visitors can access everything with regular tours throughout the region.

The increasing number of domestic visitors also includes couples looking for luxury weekend getaways. Just an easy one hour drive from Brisbane or a short flight from Sydney and Melbourne, there’s no better escape at any time of year.

With the area recently revamped in preparation for the Commonwealth Games, and major events held practically every month, Gold Coast holiday rentals are perfect at any time. Couples can take in a show, enjoy gourmet dining on the Strip or try their luck at Jupiters Casino.

There are plenty of activities to enjoy, from relaxing sunset cruises to action-packed adventures. Learn to surf or sail, or hire a kayak and enjoy the local birdlife – there’s always somewhere new to explore.

How To Choose The Best Gold Coast Accommodation Apartments

Have you ever booked holiday apartments on the Gold Coast that you couldn’t wait to get out of? They’ve got a bed but that’s about it! Don’t worry, it’s happened to us all.

Even though most families are keen to get out and explore the area, it’s still important to have safe and comfortable accommodation to return to, at the end of the day.

To be sure of choosing the best Gold Coast accommodation apartments, there are a few things you should check before booking.


If a resort is advertised as being close to the beach, make sure it is! ‘Walking distance’ should not be a 30-minute hike! With the great deals available at resorts such as the Phoenician, ‘close’ means 100 metres or so.

And what about restaurants and cafes? Dining out is all part of the holiday experience, and it’s even better if you can enjoy it without driving, or taking an expensive taxi.

Gold Coast Accommodation

Check out what facilities are included at the resort. They should be good enough to keep you entertained for a whole day without leaving! If you like to holiday out of season, look for a resort with a second, heated, indoor pool. It makes a world of difference.

Does the resort have a gym, a sauna and a spa for the grown-ups, and a games room for the kids. This could be a lifesaver on a rainy day!

And what about inclusions such as security parking?


With so many resorts competing for business on the Gold Coast, you should expect some luxury, even on a budget. What does the apartment include? A good apartment should offer a lounge area, a balcony, a fully equipped kitchen (not just a microwave and a kettle!), and laundry facilities. Then there’s Austar, WiFi, security, and other desirable features.

If a AAA 4-Star resort like the Phoenician can still offer amazing deals, you should accept nothing less!

Why Resorts Are The New Holiday Houses In Broadbeach

My preference for holiday houses in Broadbeach is not actually a house at all, it’s a resort! And I reckon it’s heaps better because you get all the space and freedom, plus amazing resort facilities, at a better price!

When choosing your ‘holiday house’, it’s always a good idea to check out the guest reviews, to get a true idea of what to expect. And it seems that families and couples who stay at the Phoenician Resort in Broadbeach have only good things to say.

Nothing Is Too Much Trouble

1Reading the reviews, you get the impression that nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the Phoenician, from supplying extra towels and pillows, to offering amazing deals.

The thing is, the Phoenician is just metres from the patrolled beach, so there’s a huge advantage straight off, especially for families. If somebody forgets the beach umbrella, it’s just a short walk back to your apartment and, at the end of the day, when the kids are tired and grumpy, you’ll have them home and in the shower in minutes!

Impressive Facilities

I’d say that the Phoenician Resort’s facilities are another reason why guests enjoy their holidays; indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spas, sauna, gymnasium, games room, barbecues, tour desk, even secure undercover parking for the car. When you consider the great deals on accommodation at the Phoenician, those are some pretty impressive inclusions.

One And Two Bedroom Apartments

10A quick look online tells you the Phoenician has a choice of one and two-bedroom air-conditioned apartments, all with comfortable lounge areas and private balconies. The thing that really impressed me was that the smaller apartments still have the same amazing inclusions. And as we have all discovered I’m sure, that is not always the case at other resorts!

However, you wouldn’t want to just take my word for it! The Phoenician Resort currently has some great deals on offer, so why not jump on their website at http://www.phoenician.com.au and try it for yourself!
