Les Clefs d’or

Where Brisbane - - Contents - By Shane Ed­wards CHEF CONCIERGE, SOF­I­TEL GOLD COAST BROAD­BEACH

WEL­COME TO THE GOLD COAST. On be­half of Derek Fenn, Mar­riott Surfers Paradise Re­sort; Chris­tian Espino, In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Sanc­tu­ary Cove 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.’

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