Les Clefs d’or

CHEF CONCIERGE, SOF­I­TEL GOLD COAST BROAD­BEACH

Where Brisbane - - Contents - By Shane Ed­wards

WEL­COME TO THE Gold Coast. On be­half of Derek Fenn, Mar­riott Surfers Par­adise Re­sort; Chris­tian Espino, In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Sanc­tu­ary Cove; Ni­cholas Fisher, Palazzo Ver­sace Gold Coast and my­self, we look for­ward to help­ing you en­joy our patch of par­adise.

Les Clefs d’or is a world­wide so­ci­ety of pro­fes­sional concierge. Founded in Paris, France in the early 1950s, we are a unique so­ci­ety of like-minded in­di­vid­u­als striv­ing to de­liver ser­vice to the trav­eller. The pa­ram­e­ters of le­gal and moral are the guide­lines we work un­der, so the scope of which we are able to de­liver is left up to your imag­i­na­tion.

The Gold Coast is full of won­der­ful restau­rants, cafés and bars as well as be­ing known as Aus­tralia’s theme park cap­i­tal. The Hin­ter­land of­fers visi­tors a num­ber of na­ture ex­pe­ri­ences and ex­po­sure to nat­u­ral beauty or, as we like to call it, the ‘Green Be­hind the Gold’.

Sun, sand and surf are three words that pretty much sum us up! We are not called the Gold Coast and Surfers Par­adise for noth­ing. Our beaches are some of the best in the world; con­stant warm tem­per­a­tures all year round make us the envy of the south­ern states. Re­mem­ber to swim be­tween the flags, as the motto goes ‘if we can’t see you we can’t save you.’

It is an ex­cit­ing time on the Coast with all the con­struc­tion of new fa­cil­i­ties for the Gold Coast 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games as well as Jupiters Casino, Pa­cific Fair Shop­ping Cen­tre and our new light rail, which all play a part in mak­ing the Gold Coast one of the most live­able cities in Aus­tralia.

Re­lax, take a deep breath and en­joy. Keep an eye out for our golden crossed keys and make sure you in­tro­duce your­self.
