Earlier this week I decided to escape the Christmas stress and go on a little holiday. I adore Queensland and all it has to offer so I thought this time I thought I’d head down the Gold Coast and opt for a little staycation.
Christmas can be such a stressful time of year and having this holiday booked was kind of like a light at the end of the tunnel and inspiration to get all my Christmas shopping (and the dreaded Christmas wrapping) done before we headed off on our little mini road trip.
This time I decided to stay at Voco Gold Coast and I was not disappointed. From free wifi, stunning pools and day spas to the gorgeous Gold Coast beaches and iconic Surfers paradise being just a short walk away this hotel is a one stop shop for all your vacay essentials.
Being a mum and just loving to be a super organized person I always research wherever I’m staying within an inch of its life before I decide. So to make it easier on you guys I thought I’d write this blog post and put all the information in one spot.
Listed below is a list of all the restaurants and cafes available at Voco.
Clifford’s Grill & Lounge –
Class and culture, salt and sophistication, with an emphasis on interaction, taste and relaxation, Clifford’s is just what the Coast has been waiting for. Come together over the finest food.
Waves Buffet Restaurant –
At Waves Buffet restaurant offers a fresh local seafood buffet accompanied by a selection of season themed international dishes inspired by the exotic flavours of Asia, India and the Mediterranean.
Social House – Bar
Lounge, dine, game. connect, celebrate and relax over tapas platters and cocktails. Watch the game on the weekend with your mates, cold beers in hand. Catch up after work for drinks and dinner with colleagues or stop by for a mid week business lunch paired with a sneaky glass of wine or beer.
Decadent High Tea
A chunky, contemporary and generous high tea that does not come with the typical cucumber sandwiches. Sip tea, coffee, sparkling or champagne garnished with waves of prosciutto, curls of chocolate and hills of clotted cream.
Social House – cafe
Get good coffee where baristas remember your order. Before getting on the G:link, choose something from the grab and go menu: pastries, salads and wraps. Stop by Social House Cafe before or after your swim in the Pacific Ocean for some Surfers Paradise nourishment. Order a protein booster to feed sore muscles after your beach run. Bring the morning paper and settle in with your favourite coffee at Social House Cafe.
The rooms are modern and has absolutely stunning views of the Gold Coast and with free WI-FI what more could you possibly want?!
My favourite part of staying in a beautiful hotel is always the day spa and Voco’s is stunning. With spa features such as: Masseuse, Hydro therapy, Sauna, Steam bathing, Beauty treatments, Body scrub, Waxing, Facials, Foot reflexology, Therapy baths and Paraffin hand treatment.
The kids adored the pool. I had to bribe them on our final night with pizza from the room service menu just to get them out of the pool and back to the room for showers.
We loved our little staycation and I think i’m going to make it a yearly Christmas tradition as it was so perfect and exactly what we needed before the stress of Christmas.
If you have any questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them so please don’t hesitate to let me know.
