Marriott Vacation Club® at Surfers Paradise Now Open in Gold Coast, Australia

Marriott Vacation Club is proud to announce the opening of Marriott Vacation Club at Surfers Paradise, in Gold Coast, a top vacation spot in Australia. The new resort — and its mix of spacious deluxe guestrooms and deluxe one-bedroom suites — is located at the iconic and award-winning Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa.

“Our Owners, Members and guests can now enjoy incredible stays at one of the world’s finest beach destinations,” said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “We’ve redefined the Australian vacation experience by matching the unique amenities and activities of the famous Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa with the signature hospitality and service of Marriott Vacation Club. Our guests will be immersed in the best of Australia’s Gold Coast, enhanced with Marriott quality and attention to detail.”

Marriott Vacation Club is thoroughly remodeling the 88 rooms, some of which can be turned into deluxe two-bedroom suites to accommodate larger families. All rooms have balconies that overlook Gold Coast’s Surfers Paradise, an area of Australia known for its pure white sand, challenging surf breaks, lush green rainforests and blue Pacific waters. Each room at Marriott Vacation Club at Surfers Paradise offers complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and daily housekeeping service.

Owners, Members and guests staying at Marriott Vacation Club at Surfers Paradise enjoy all the world-class amenities and activities featured by Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, including fresh and saltwater lagoons where they can swim through cascading waterfalls, snorkel among colorful fish or relax in aquatic quiet zones. Guests will discover delicious, eclectic food — and stunning views of the lagoon and tropical gardens —at the resort’s many dining and cocktail experiences. Top-to-toe pampering is available at the full-service Ruby Spa and a fitness center keeps guests in shape. Youngsters will stay busy at the activities center or playing on the multipurpose sport court. Bike rentals and tennis are available and four challenging golf courses are just a short drive away.

The main attraction, of course, is the location itself: Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise are ideally situated on Australia’s eastern coast, enjoying year-round temperate weather and an average of 300 days of sunshine each year. Nearby are Queensland’s attractions, including Australia’s largest theme parks, Dreamworld and Sea World, boutique shopping and lively entertainment districts. Adventure can be found in the lush rainforests and native wildlife of the Gold Coast’s hinterlands. Guests can ride bikes from the buzzy neighborhoods of Surfers Paradise all the way to the chic cafes of Broadbeach. There’s no shortage of water activities, including jet boats, paddleboards, scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing.

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland and its art and music hub, is perfect for a day trip and the beauty of Sydney, Melbourne and the Great Barrier Reef are just one- to two-hour flights away, making Marriott Vacation Club at Surfers Paradise the ideal base for an astounding Australian vacation.
