These luxurious family villas are hiding in plain sight on the Gold Coast.
While planning a memorable family holiday on the Gold Coast, parents are usually faced with a challenging decision: choosing between the convenience and luxury of a resort holiday or, instead, the privacy of a spacious apartment. The answer to this common dilemma? A luxury beachfront villa that forms a private oasis away from the bustle while boasting all the benefits of a renowned resort. Enter: Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast Villas.
A whole new look
Set on iconic Main Beach, these newly transformed villas have recently been reimagined by award-winning architects DBI Design. Brimming with natural light, the villas’ design is centred on the stunning views beyond those floor-to-ceiling windows. The spacious two- and three-bedroom villas reflect their coastal backdrop, with sophisticated furnishings and fittings to suit the sub-tropical natural environment.
Inside the chic villas, an open plan sees guests’ contemporary, fully equipped kitchens open up into expansive dining and living areas – making the accommodation an ideal space for gathering family together and sharing meals around the dining table.
The best of both worlds; hotel and apartment
With a full range of resort services on offer (and the freedom to retreat to your villa when it’s time to unwind), families can opt to self cater or access the restaurants, bars and room service that come with a resort holiday – or take advantage of both and enjoy the variety.
At the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast, guests can dine at Terraces Restaurant, which dishes up modern Australian cuisine. For drinks, adults can head to Pearls Bar, or, by day, swim up to Oasis Pool Bar in the resort’s main pool. Then there’s The Deck for casual dining experiences, where guests can enjoy their morning coffee, an afternoon high tea or pre-dinner drinks.
Guests can also indulge in massages in their villas, and take a dip in the privacy of a pool reserved solely for villa guests. The heated pool also provides direct access to Mirage Beach.
Villas include a ready-to-entertain kitchen complete with a cooktop, oven, fridge and freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and utensils, and are fully prepared for family beach life with a washing machine and dryer. Villa guests also receive private, undercover secure parking and access to all resort services, including 24-hour reception, concierge, wi-fi, the resort’s lagoon pool and the gymnasium.
The ultimate location; on the beach
When it comes to holidaying on the Gold Coast, the sought-after beachfront is where you want to be – and the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast Villas gives guests direct access to its golden sands. Here, you can wake up to the sounds of the waves lapping on the shores of Main Beach, enjoy daily ocean swims, and take afternoon sunset strolls along the sand, just metres from your villa.
And yet, there’s more to this location than its beachfront access. From the villas, you’re just a short distance away from Main Beach’s burgeoning restaurant scene, all the action of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, boutique shopping, the Gold Coast’s famed theme parks, the stores and eateries of Marina Mirage, the outlets of Harbour Town, and a short drive from the lush Gold Coast hinterland. If in doubt, guests can ask the friendly resort staff for their top recommendations on what to do in the area, or visit the resort’s website to plan the ideal family holiday itinerary.
Following a day spent exploring the attractions and natural beauty of the coast, those staying at the villas can head back and luxuriate in the tranquillity and privacy of their own beachfront oasis (that is, if they can manage to lure themselves away from their villa in the first place).
A choice of villas to suit your family
At the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Gold Coast, there’s a selection of configurations to suit individual families’ needs. For those who require two bedrooms, there’s a choice between the two-bedroom villa and the two-bedroom rooftop villa, the latter including a private rooftop terrace that’s ideal for sunlit drinks and entertaining.
For larger families, there’s the option of a three-bedroom villa or a deluxe ocean villa – named for its unbeatable views of that sapphire-blue Pacific.
Whichever you choose, each villa also offers a private balcony from which to soak in those refreshing sea breezes and a taste of the Gold Coast’s inimitable beachside, alfresco lifestyle.
