Lovely hotel super location! We booked this hotel on the recommendation of a family member and booked the last room available for the last week of the school holidays. We had a two bedroom apartment (403) which was well appointed, though, could do with a re-paint and freshen up. Roll down blinds, rather than curtains meant the rooms were very...

It's hard to fault Nirvana. It is very clean and tidy and it's located in a great location (apart from the shopping centre views next door). We parked the car underneath and didn't take it out for a week. There is a bus stop near by so you can go to up the coast if you please. We had a...

Lovely location, opposite kirra beach. We stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath unit. The unit was large and Miele appliances a bonus. This is not a hotel with all the bells and whistles. There seems to be confusion over the loyalty program that is advertised on the website but not yet available when we enquired. The glass in the...

My husband and I stayed at Nirvana for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was nicely fitted out, had great views up and down the beach, and was within a lovely walk to cafes and shops. The bus to Surfers ran right past the door which was great if you don't want to drive. Whilst it...

We are glad you enjoyed your 3 night stay with us here at Nirvana. Kirra is a lovely spot as you said just a short 15min stroll along the beachfront from Coolangatta with plenty of cafe's along the way. We look forward to seeing you on your return trip.

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment here for 5 nights. It was perfect. Well appointed and sparklingly clean and right across the street from one of the best beaches on the Gold Coast. The staff were wonderfully helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Spacious, incredibly well appointed & every balcony with a seaview - wow, beat that! We absolutely loved this place & would return without hesitation. Great value for money as two couples, with a fantastic beach & amenities just across the road. A 10 minute walk & you're in the heart of Coolangatta, if you want things alot busier. Otherwise, enjoy...
