By lit­eral def­i­ni­tion, the QT Gold Coast ho­tel screams ac­com­mo­da­tion, re­lax­ation or some­where for trav­ellers to rest their weary bod­ies. But did you know, you can also sat­isfy an all-day hunger at this pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion – right from morn­ing to night?

Ho­tel break­fasts are usu­ally a lux­ury re­served for pay­ing guests, but QT Gold Coast of­fers some pretty great din­ing op­tions for the most im­por­tant meal of the day. In­spired by the souks of Morocco, Bazaar’s mar­ket­place style of­fers pas­tries and donuts, bircher and yogurt cups, fresh sea­sonal fruits and all the usual hot break­fast sus­pects – pan­cakes, waf­fles, omelettes - you name it!

Nearby FIXX Café has quickly be­come a brunch hotspot for lo­cal en­trepreneurs to meet and col­lab­o­rate, tak­ing ad­van­tage of the bright open spa­ces, the cof­fee and the tasty treats on of­fer (plus free Wifi!). Pop­u­lar ser­vices are the Qtea and Man Tea, two unique twists on the clas­sic High Tea, and all meals use the best sea­sonal pro­duce from the ho­tel’s rooftop gar­den.

When you start to feel that late-af­ter­noon hunger (and thirst), hit up St­ingray Lounge. This Gold Coast in­sti­tu­tion is one of the city’s more pop­u­lar han­gouts, well loved for its im­pres­sive ar­chi­tec­ture and even more im­pres­sive cock­tail list. De­li­cious Baja-cal­i­for­nia-style food goes per­fectly with the ex­ten­sive mixol­o­gist-crafted list of bev­er­ages, and the in­ter­na­tional res­i­dent DJS who dom­i­nate on Fri­day and Satur­day nights.

As the evening turns into night, head to Ya­m­a­gen for some new twists on tra­di­tional dishes and din­ing. The precinct re­cently cel­e­brated 30 suc­cess­ful years in the same way that all good Gold Coast­ers do – with a facelift! Head chef Adam Lane melds Ja­panese tra­di­tion with QT Gold Coast’s ir­rev­er­ent quirk, de­liv­er­ing a fine bal­ance of qual­ity food and en­ter­tain­ment.

“I re­ally en­joy the chal­lenge of mix­ing in­gre­di­ents that you wouldn’t usu­ally think of putting to­gether,” Adam says. “Find­ing the per­fect bal­ance of flavours is what keeps our work ex­cit­ing.”

And it cer­tainly is ex­cit­ing. With four restau­rants de­fined by very dis­tinct styles and flavours un­der the one roof, it’s an eat­ing des­ti­na­tion you’re sure to come back to time and time (and time, and time…) again. And when your food coma takes over, af­ter a full day graz­ing the var­i­ous QT Gold Coast eater­ies, sim­ply stay the night. Easy.
