Are you considering a couples getaway as we near the end of the year? Whether it’s a weekend away, a week of relaxation and romance, or getting away from it all for a holiday of a lifetime at a spectacular coastal Queensland location, the opportunities are endless for planning the perfect stay for some quality time with your special someone.
A special budget romantic getaway
Have you been looking for cheap accommodation on the Gold Coast, but you don’t want to compromise on location or comfort? Planning the perfect romantic weekend away or couples holiday can be done on a budget, allowing you to spend more on experiences, dining, and exploring this beautiful location.
Some top tips for planning a budget stay include choosing a location where there are great local attractions, restaurants, cafes, and shopping opportunities within walking distance, or just a short drive away. For example, Palmerston Tower is just a stone’s throw from the pristine Gold Coast Broadwater with the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre within walking distance.
You can enjoy long walks with water views as the sun sets, enjoy some fun couple activities like jet skiing or windsurfing, and swim in the tranquil waters of the Broadwater patrolled golden beach just 50m away. You can stroll down to the locals restaurants and cafes, or head to Australia Fair Shopping Centre.
Travelling further out to explore more of the Gold Coast is as simple as jumping on a G:link tram, and you can visit Surfers Paradise, the culinary hub of the Gold Coast in Broadbeach, and visit the recently revamped Star Gold Coast casino. Savings that come from a handy location and easy access via inexpensive public transport to explore the best local hotspots, as well as having the facilities to prepare your own favourite meals some of the time in your holiday apartments helps to keep your holiday within budget.
Of course you do want your accommodation to be affordable. Did you know that many holiday apartments offer lower nightly rates for 7 days + stays? You can view the discounts that we offer for longer stays, with 3 day, 5 day, and 7 day stay discounts available. While our stay rates do vary depending on the time of year, we have holiday apartments perfect for couples starting at $125 a night currently (subject to change). Make sure you check all of our most up to date stay rates and T&C’s here.

The best Gold Coast experiences for couples
With so many options for couples visiting the Gold Coast, there’s just no shortage of things for you to see and do on your stay. Are you the outdoorsy type that enjoys getting out on the water sailing, or enjoying a sunset cruise, or maybe even enjoying a spot of fishing or whale watching! Maybe you’d prefer to hike and find secret waterfalls in the breathtaking Gold Coast hinterland with walking tracks through Lamington National Park, Springbrook, or Mount Tamborine.
A more sedate pace visiting local wineries, craft beer breweries, or trendy little markets might be more your style. You could float through the sky in a hot air balloon as the sun rises, or take in the spectacular ocean and hinterland 360 degree views from the Skypoint Observation deck in the Q1 Building.
Perhaps you are just craving long sundrenched days swimming in the ocean, floating in the pool, and simply enjoying uninterrupted quality time together where you can really connect and enjoy each other's company. A stay with us offers just what you need if this sounds like just what you are looking for.
Our onsite facilities have been designed with your ultimate relaxation in mind. Enjoy swimming laps in our inviting heated outdoor swimming pool, unwinding and relaxing sore tired muscles with a soothing soak in the spa, or enjoy a leisurely game of tennis at our half size tennis court. You can enjoy preparing an alfresco meal with our guest barbecue area and dine in the tranquil tropical garden outdoor dining setting.
Enjoy a glass of wine on your private balcony with sparkling water views and cool ocean breezes, and then relax in air conditioned comfort as you enjoy watching a movie together. You can enjoy a long sleep in with your comfortable queen sized bed for a restful night, and wake up recharged and ready for whatever the day brings.
One thing is for sure, a couples holiday to the Gold Coast and a comfortable stay with affordable Southport Broadwater accommodation, truly enjoyable facilities, all of your creature comforts, and an incredible location that’s hard to top sounds like just the thing for rekindling the romance and coming home feeling refreshed and revitalised.
