Paradise Resort Named Best Family Resort in Australia

  • Written by Karen Smith

Paradise Resort has once again been recognised for its commitment to providing memorable family experiences taking out 'Best Family Resort in Australia' in the Out and About with Kids Readers' Choice awards.

The annual awards, which have been running for over 7 years, aim to uncover the absolute best family holiday experiences in Australia across several categories including best destination, best resort and best adventure.

The award was announced on October 1st in the Spring issue of the Out and About with Kids Magazine and Paradise Resort was up against a number of worthy competitors including SeaWorld Resort and the Surfers Paradise Marriot Resort and Spa.

Resort General Manager David Brook is thrilled that the Resort is continuing to provide valuable experiences for families.

“Being voted the winner of 'Best Family Resort in Australia' is an extraordinary honour and I am grateful that our guests have voted for us,” said Mr Brook.

“Winning this award only reaffirms exactly what is at the heart of what we do at Paradise Resort, and that's providing memorable experiences for families.”

Paradise Resort has its own water park, ice rink, kids club, rock climbing, laser tag and adventure park onsite and Mr Brook believes that these features are what differentiates them from their competitors.

“I believe these facilities combined with our dedication to providing great family experiences, is what sets us apart from other holiday resorts,” said Mr Brook.

“There's a lot to be proud about this year and myself and my team are excited for another busy summer season here at Paradise Resort.”

Paradise Resort is also nominated for the 'Best Resort' in the Holidays with Kids Reader's Choice Awards, set to be announced October 4th.  

More About Paradise Resort Gold Coast

Set on five acres close to beaches and attractions, Paradise Resort is renowned as the number one destination for families travelling to the Gold Coast.

The Resort offers a range of accommodation options throughout its 360 guest rooms, with family comfort top of mind, including the popular themed King and Junior Bunkhouse rooms which feature an Xbox with free DVD and game hire.

The entire central resort area features a giant lagoon pool, large heated spa and two enormous Zone for Kids (Z4K) waterpark attractions - one of the biggest Resort aqua play waterparks in the Southern Hemisphere.

Both the 0-5 year and 5-12 year water park attractions sport a myriad of slides, water cannons and jets to entertain and engage the whole family, topped off with a giant bucket that fills with 600 litres of water before dumping it on the kids below in one enormous splash!

And in what can only be described as the ultimate family holiday amenity, the Resort features the Zone for Kids Club – a fully supervised kids club offering separate play spaces ensuring age appropriate care and activities for kids aged 0-12.

Unlike any other kids club in Australia, Z4K Club provides an engaging environment where children really want to spend time - with its 9 themed play spaces and experienced team, Z4K provides a host of activities including a subterranean play centre and maze, pedal cars, movie room, activities and more.

The resort is also home to PLANET CHILL and is the only resort in the Southern Hemisphere that has a permanent ice-skating rink onsite.

Many of the accommodation packages include a daily complimentary session for each child in the Zone 4 Kids Club, valued at up to $60 and meals can be pre-purchased for each session, allowing parents and older children time to escape the daily routine and indulge in some holiday sightseeing or precious down time.

A memorable holiday is never complete without good food at economical prices and to help the holiday budget the Resort offers child meals from as little as $12 at The Bistro and Poolside Café and Bar.

The incredible value offering that Paradise Resort manages to pack into each family holiday stay is the reason guests keep re-visiting time and again and with a range of affordable holiday packages and rooms to suit all budgets, the Resort really is the perfect choice for any family holiday in Australia's favourite playground.
