Lo­cated in the ul­tra-fam­ily-friendly Mer­maid Beach area on the Gold Coast, Tur­tle Beach Re­sort is a four-star de­light with ev­ery­thing a fam­ily needs and more, only 300 me­tres from the beach­front. Nes­tled among 4.5 hectares of lush, land­scaped gar­dens, the re­sort of­fers fully self-con­tained one- to four-bed­room apart­ments, cater­ing for every size fam­ily. Each has a pri­vate bal­cony or pa­tio that over­looks the prop­erty.

Room for ev­ery­one

Each spa­cious apart­ment fea­tures laun­dry fa­cil­i­ties, air-con­di­tioned and heated liv­ing ar­eas and ceil­ing fans in bed­rooms, mak­ing this ideal ac­com­mo­da­tion all year-round.

For trav­ellers want­ing to eat out, a short ex­pe­di­tion along the Gold Coast High­way will yield boun­ti­ful re­sults. Guests might not even make it that far, though, as the apart­ments fea­ture full kitchen fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing an oven, cook­top, mi­crowave and dish­washer, com­plete with crock­ery, cut­lery and cook­ware. The Deck Restau­rant & Bar is also open along­side the on-site con­ve­nience store, so there’s al­most no need to leave the premises.

Fam­ily-friendly digs

The mo­ment you step into Tur­tle Beach Re­sort, the aura of buzzing ex­cite­ment is pal­pa­ble. The feel­ing in­ten­si­fies once guests re­alise the sheer ex­tent of fam­ily-cen­tric ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer. Move over Wet’n’wild; kids will be wowed at the on-site Splash Zone Water­park with its four wa­ter slides, two tod­dler slides, dump­ing bucket and wa­ter can­nons. Let’s not for­get the four sep­a­rate swim­ming ar­eas, four spas, gated kids’ ar­eas, play­ground, 15-hole putt-putt golf course, 22-seat cin­ema and ar­cade games room. Kids from four to 12 can also play the day away at Club Tur­tle Kids’ Club. Mean­while, adults have the chance to be pam­pered at Ch­elo­nia Day Spa, or work up a sweat at the fit­ness room, which is decked out with the lat­est equip­ment. Look­ing for even more? Guests can book tours, trans­fers, and tick­ets to the theme parks and more at the Tour Desk, which is open daily. For more in­for­ma­tion turtle­beach.com.au
