You have complete beach and ocean view from here with views to the far left of surfers paradise and Coolangatta to the right. Nirvana has Lap pools and a spa,...

Awesome location in Kirra Beach. It is 5 minutes walk to Kirra and North Kirra surf clubs also 5 minutes to the Kirra Hotel. Across the road from a good park for kids to play in, which is an amazing advantage for families. Great view from apartment as well. There are fantastic food options in the same building.

This is a great modern hotel tucked just around the corner from Coolangatta in Kirra. Good restaurants just downstairs or 10 mins walk away in Coolangatta. Across the road from the beach. Attentive, friendly management & staff.

We have stayed in plenty of apartment style accommodation, both through our business and holidays. When our normal place in Byron Bay was unavailable, we were left to find a new place and decided to find a new location as well. Kirra is awesome!!

If you want to relax in beautiful scenery, with minimal tourists and casual luxury this is it . we stayed in the sub penthouse with its own private pool. Initially we thought the pool being one level above our room was not the best idea , however it is a brilliant concept being two totally separate spaces so everyone enjoyed...
