“Treat yourself. This is the place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

I have stayed at several apartment complexes along the Gold Coast over the years and Sea Temple Surfers Paradise is by far the best. It is new, luxurious, spacious and offers numerous places to relax. Add to that the location, amenities, a pool you just can’t resist and friendly & helpful staff - it is just about the perfect place to stay on the Gold Coast.

The location couldn’t be better. Directly across the road from the beach and right on the corner of Cavill Avenue which is perfect if you want to do a bit of shopping or indulge in Surfers’ famous (or infamous!) night life.

It is one of the newest (and yet to be completed) high-rise apartment complexes on the Gold Coast so there is still a bit of construction going on around it, but that didn’t take away from the experience.

Room stayed in: 3 bedrooms (1 king, 4 single beds), 2 bathrooms. 26th floor. 5 adults.
- Fully equipped kitchen
- In room Wifi which is free if you join the Global Hotel Alliance club (free to join)
- LCD TVs in the lounge, master bedroom and one of the smaller rooms. The lounge also has amplifier, speakers and iPod dock.
- Spacious living area (which makes it suitable for families too)
- Large master bedroom with beautiful en-suite featuring a spa-bath
- Second bathroom sits between the two smaller rooms and has a shower and toilet (no bathtub)
- Great panoramic views including both an ocean view and a view of Surfers Paradise itself.
- Main balcony adjoining the master bedroom and lounge room is also spacious and has an outdoor setting for six people. Around the corner there is also a great outdoor lounger which is perfect to relax on in the warm weather.
- The secondary balcony which starts at the kitchen and runs the length of the apartment is accessible from both of the smaller bedrooms. This offers a great view of Surfers Paradise.

- The outdoor pool is the centrepiece of Sea Temple. A beautifully landscaped, multi-tiered, heated pool & spa that just makes it irresistible to swim in. It overlooks the beach across the esplanade and as with the rest of the hotel, the pool itself and the pool area has plenty of space with no shortage of sun chairs/beds - which bodes well for the peak season. The indoor pool is a lap pool and has an adjoining sun deck.

- Well equipped gym with treadmills, rower, weight machines etc.

- Nice garden area with three BBQs

Cons:
- Can be a bit windy on the balconies. If you have both doors open then the wind blows right through. We stayed on the south side of the building and from what some other reviews have said it doesn’t seem to be an issue on the northern side.

- There is a buffet breakfast with a good spread of food in the restaurant for $36, but this is quite pricey given the quality of the food is good, not great. Being in the heart of Surfers there are plenty of cheaper options for breakfast close by.

- For a few hours each day the high-rise of Sea Temple casts a shadow over its own pool, so it is best to use the pool in the morning or from mid-afternoon.

- I signed up to the Global Hotel Alliance to get the free WiFi but found that it only lasted 24 hours and I had to renew each day. It was free but a bit annoying I had to do this. I’m sure you can arrange for longer if you ask, I only used it for two days.

As you can see, very minor cons!!

Sea Temple is on the more expensive end of the scale of accommodation, but if you can find a good deal or don’t mind splashing out a little bit you won’t be disappointed. I will definitely be returning and don’t see myself staying anywhere else on future visits to Surfers Paradise.

We recently stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was absolutely beautiful! Great furnishings - the furniture in the lobby is gorgeous! The staff were so friendly and helpful - the girls in the restaurant were really pleasant. Great outdoor/indoor pool to keep this kids occupied! I would highly recommend your next stay here - we will be staying again!

Room Tip: Perhaps staying on a lower level whilst building works are still in progress - we were on the 39th f...

At this moment, there is still significant building work underway with angle grinders, trucks, drills and hammers active at 6.30am. Ultimately, all of this development will be a wonderful improvement to the area, so request a Room at higher levels. Rooms are beautifully appointed and come complete with fully equipped kitchen. Pacific ocean views are panoramic. Not sure why, but not all staff were energized or warm. Concierge is regularly unmanned and long waits can be expected for car retrieval. The signature restaurant, Seaduction, is superb. Portions are very artistic and small, but bursting with flavor. Room service dining is also top notch.

The hotel rooms are amazing, great views, large rooms and front to back of building apartments.

The facilities are excellent. Pool looks over the beach and separate indoor pool and spa for laps and relaxing.

The Seductions restaurant is is fantastic. A little exxy for the only option in the hotel, but worth it.

This would have to be one of the best on the Gold Coast now.

The rooms on the North side of the building are less windy.

Fantastic, if you haven't visited the Gold Coast for awhile it is time to return! Things are changing Surfers is alive and shining again and the Sea Temple is the bright sparkling centre! Right opposite the beach and the exciting new board walk the Sea Temple has terrific accommodation (fully self contained luxury apartments) with amazing pools; in-door and out-door, gardens, steam rooms, saunas, BBQ areas, terrific in-house restaurant with views, valet parking and friendly helpful staff! I am so impressed and excited about the Sea Temple what a welcome arrival to Surfers!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views are fully self contained with laundry facilities.

The Sea Temple Surfers Paradise was undoubtedly was of the best places we have stayed at in Surfers. This was our eighth trip to Surfers and not happy with our last hotel on our last trip we decided to try somewhere different. After receiving an email from Mirvac with some holiday specials we booked our holiday at the last moment.
We could not have been happier. Every aspect of this building is just amazing. The furnishings and every little finishing touch is just extraordinary!! The room’s layout was great and the beds were so comfortable.
The pool both outdoor and indoor was fantastic and we used the Gym everyday with the latest equipment.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. Across the road from the beach, in walking distance to restaurants and shops, we did not get in our car for 4 days out of the 6 nights we stayed as everything is right at your door step.
The staff were just lovely, nothing was a problem and they were always welcoming and friendly. We have now found our place to stay in Surfers, it would be hard to top the Sea Temple.

Stayed here for a long weekend. Everything about the stay was wonderful; staff, room, restaurant , location, room service. The only minor problem is the outdoor pool, way to small particularly when the under 12's begin to propel themselves about. When full occupancy is reached this will be major.
