Fodor's Review

One of Queensland's most popular destination hotels, this vibrant retro-meets-modern resort boasts 360-degree views of the beach and hinterland, on-site restaurants and bars, and enough quirk and energy to make it stand brightly apart in a glut of beachside high rises. A homage to Aussie retro surf culture, the busy young hotel is a pleasure to greet with an old-fashioned soft drink stand, vintage-style bicycles (free for guests), and retro "beach babe" decals fitting out the light, mirrored lobby. Just a few minutes from Surfers' main beach, QT has a range of ocean and mountain view rooms and suites, where colorful designer furniture is complemented by breathtaking views, luxury fittings, and thoughtful local touches like beach bags, flip-flops, and do-it-yourself lemonade kits. Work up an appetite in the sunny pool and Jacuzzi area (including swim-up bar), then retire to Bazaar—QT's large, lively, marketplace-style restaurant—serving multi-origin buffets for breakfast, dinner, and Sunday lunch. For an extra treat, head down to SpaQ on Level 1, where massage, facials, skin treatments and a hammam sauna bring you to cloud nine.
