Best Hotels To Stay in Queensland

Need some sunshine and warmth? The sky in our northeastern state is fickle and clear for the vast majority of the year. To put it another way, are you pleading for a beach? In fact, there are about 2,000 along the whole shoreline. Want something tasty to drink or eat but can't find it? As a matter of fact, each city in Australia is home to at least one cutting-edge eatery or pub. seeking new summer clothing Sure. The third most populous state in the United States has transformed into a fashion capital over the last decade, thanks to the decision of many major online retailers to set up shop there.

Whether you're looking for somewhere to swim, eat, or shop (or all three, like us), Queensland can provide a memorable vacation.

But what is a luxury vacation without the proper lodging? In order to help you relax and enjoy some much-needed sun and sea, we have compiled a list of some of the most stylish and upscale places to stay in Queensland.

1. Mt Mulligan Lodge

Mt Mulligan Lodge

Mount Mulligan Lodge is located in the middle of rural Queensland. Though not really the first place that comes to mind when considering a vacation in Queensland, this is nevertheless a popular option. The resort is located on a vast former cattle ranch that spans an incredible 28,000 acres. You may take a helicopter there from Cairns Airport if speed is of the essence, or you can drive there in around 2.5 hours.

The lodge's high guest-to-staff ratio ensures highly individualized care. There is space for up to 16 people, yet you may feel like you have the whole room. In a matter of minutes, you'll be chatting with the whole crew on a first-name basis, making for a very personalized and warm visit. Definitely one of the best-hidden treasures in Northern Queensland!


2. Palazzo Versace

Palazzo Versace

At least you can take a trip like Donatella if you can't be her in every other way. When visiting the Gold Coast, celebrities such as Johnny Depp, U2, Pink, and Mariah Carey stayed at the Palazzo Versace, one of the few six-star hotels in Australia (yeah, we didn't realize the rating went beyond five either). It has all the garish, gilded splendor that one would expect from a high-end fashion house.

In case you forget its nickname, the hotel has a magnificent entryway, pillars, glossy floors, and Versace Medusa insignia imprinted on every nook and cushion. The 200-room resort, however, has perhaps the most spectacular pool and grounds of any on the beautiful South Queensland coast. The fountains and palm-fringed lagoon pool of Palazzo Versace are lined with enormous cabanas covered in floating white transparent drapes. Even if the resort is enormous, alfresco waiters are constantly standing by to serve you an Aperol spritzer or an espresso (Donatella's preferred beverage, after all).


3. Luxury Rainforest Retreat

Luxury Rainforest Retreat

The Luxury Rainforest Retreat is a great option for those looking for a less flashy, more private, more sensuous vacation. The tropical villa is just a short distance away from the busy Hastings Street, yet seems worlds away. The ocean on one side and a National Park on the other create a veritable sea of green and blue around the contemporary three-story refuge in Little Cove.

Although it is located in a tropical area, the style is more akin to Scandinavian minimalism, with its driftwood floors and natural stone surfaces. Two master suites, two double rooms, a huge parlor with an automatic gas fireplace, and a games and amusement area in the basement provide comfortable accommodation for up to eight people. The outside environment is the real jewel of zen, even if the spotless inside will give considerable relief from the Sunshine Coast's oppressive heat. A large balcony with views of the forest is connected to a marble kitchen by sliding glass walls. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Nine Perfect Strangers without having to worry about Masha.


4. Spicers Peak Lodge

Spicers Peak Lodge

Whatever else Spicers Peak may tell us, it's that lodges aren't limited to the mountains. An imposing mountain hideaway, like those seen in Architectural Digest, this mansion is sometimes compared to a castle in the sky. But this jewel is not easily accessible; it is tucked away along a bumpy, 12-kilometer gravel road. The sluggish speeds required for safe travel up there may make you want to give up, but the destination is well worth the effort.

Peak Lodge, a member of the exclusive Spicers Retreats hotel chain, is located on 8,000 acres of property with an infinity pool and spa, and it is next to Main Range National Park, which is on the list of World Heritage Sites. With just 13 rooms available, this hotel exudes a sense of exclusivity thanks to its striking blue-stone walls and broad wooden flooring. Despite its massive size, Peak Lodge seems like home because of the welcoming decor, which includes a mezzanine library, reading nooks, and open fireplaces. At any time of year, you may enjoy the ambiance, scenery, and food (the small on-site restaurant has been awarded two Chef Hats).


5. JW Marriott Resort

JW Marriott Resort

The JW Marriott in Surfers Paradise is a relatively new choice for anybody who wants to spend a vacation on the Gold Coast, and it is especially enticing for those who are going on vacation with their children.

This deluxe hotel in Queensland has been a success with vacationers ever since it first opened its doors in December of the year 2020. The luxurious accommodations, enormous outdoor pool, and cutting-edge fitness center at the resort are just a few examples of the high standards maintained by the establishment. Whether it be learning how to make sushi, going on an adventure in a kayak, or doing some yoga by the pool, everything about this place is aimed at the creation of experiences that can be shared with friends and family back home.


6. Hotel X

Hotel X

The boutique Hotel X, which is one of the newest hotels in the River City, delivers a five-star vibe to Fortitude Valley, even down to the facilities that were designed by Karl Lagerfield. It may be difficult to tear yourself away from the sparkling city views from your suite and the designer furnishings, but if you do, the hotel is home to some of the city's greatest cuisine and a rooftop bar; bring your hunger for France's finest at Bisou Bisou. There is no doubt that this hotel is a destination for anyone seeking a luxurious getaway in the Brisbane area.

Iris, the rooftop bar, is the place to go to see the city being engulfed in a pink glow as the sun sets while enjoying drinks and Mediterranean hors d'oeuvres.


7. Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort and Spa

Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort and Spa

When you stay at the Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort and Spa, you have the feeling of being at home, but with the added benefit of also being in a tranquil sanctuary. This is one of the many advantages of choosing to book a room at this establishment. You won't have to contend with anybody else for the peaceful atmosphere when you go to the on-site Vie Spa to spend some quality time with the person who means the most to you.

It promises to provide individualized care and carefully crafted spa experiences that combine science and nature, leaving you feeling revitalized, inspired, and in complete bliss by the time your treatment is through. A delightful addition to any excursion devoted to the sensual joys of romance!
