Top things to do on a romantic holiday

It’s a summer of possibilities in Surfers Paradise. To help you make the most of your romantic escape, we’ve compiled our top 5 things to do while visiting the summer holiday capital that is the Gold Coast.

#1 Gondola ride
We have some great news…You don’t have to visit Venice to enjoy a gondola experience! Enjoy stunning views by day or shimmering lights by night with the famous Gold Coast Gondola ride. Whether it is a romantic cruise or a day with your friends, there are packages including meals or cruise only, something to suit everyone’s style. It’s definitely one to tick off your bucket list this summer.

#2 Intimate Dining at Balthazar Wine and Dining
Experience wine and tapas like you never have before. Featuring over 500 global wine varieties and incredible flavoursome dishes from  Crowne Plaza’s award winning executive chef, an intimate experience awaits every wine and food lover at Balthazar Wine and Dining. Located in the hotel lobby, our expert sommelier will guide you through the experience of wine matching. Not only is this perfect for your date night bucket list, the dining table seats up 18 guests and offers a tapas menu or pick up a bottle of wine to takeaway this silly season.

#3 Dracula’s
Located just a 5 minute tram ride from our hotel is the spine-tingling, hilarious Dracula’s. This amusing, vivacious dinner and show is an iconic experience on the Gold Coast that will leave you on the edge of your seat and sore from laughter. With shows for 15+ years of age, this is a comedy adventure like no other!

#4 Beach walk and picnic
Enjoy a romantic stroll along some of the world’s best beaches.  Take a stroll, just one block from the hotel, and  sweep your feet through the soft white sand and dip your toes into the beautiful blue ocean. Choose to head south along the beach to enjoy Broadbeach’s vibrant new dining scene or head north to Surfers Paradise, and get involved in the energetic tourist capital of the Gold Coast.

#5 Get away from it all
Plan a summer holiday where someone else does all the cooking and cleaning for you. Pick a package that has the inclusions that are important to you.  Do you want breakfast and parking included? What about a place where kids stay and eat free? Research online but when it comes time to book, book direct with the hotel. This way you can select suitable packages for your needs and, as many hotels have a best price guarantee, you’ll get the best price!
