Surfers Paradise Marriott Opens a New Chapter... And Verse

This is no ordinary hotel bar.

By Elizabeth Best | 4th February 2016

Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa welcomes its newest addition, Chapter & Verse, an indoor-outdoor café by day, bar and lounge by night. It’s fast becoming the hottest destination for discerning Gold Coasters and travellers looking for a watering hole with a difference.

The first thing you notice when you step foot into Chapter & Verse is that it feels a world away from your everyday hotel bar. The area has been created to let lazy long lunches melt luxuriously into candle-lit cocktails, all the while overlooking the glistening azure waters of Marriott’s one-of-a-kind lagoons.

The sumptuous indoor space, filled with luxurious lounges and soothing tones is ideal for kicking back before dinner at Marriott’s famed Citrique restaurant or indulging in an elegant high tea.

If you want to relax and settle in for a while, then outdoors is where you want to be, because what sets this bar apart from all other hotel bars is the incredible view. Textures of timber, stone and metal blend seamlessly into the green of the lush gardens surrounding the bar and the blues of Marriott Surfers Paradise’s signature lagoons.

By night, flickering candles in an array of hurricane lamps provide just the right amount of mood lighting to let you truly unwind. The expansive timber deck is festooned with cosy couches and trendy tables, all open to the breeze. The bar is filled to the brim with coloured glass bottles just waiting to be turned into whatever tipple your heart desires.

And this is no ordinary bar menu: characterised by locally-sourced fresh produce, Chapter & Verse features an enticing offering of delightful light meals, delicious share plates and charming café fare. Think oven-baked Desiree potato skins with sour cream, barbecue bacon, shaved parmesan and Murray River pink salt, and oven-roasted hinterland baby beetroot salad, Mt Tamborine goat’s cheese curd, spring garden leaves, toasted pumpkin seeds, red wine vinegar dressing. Or take a bite out of the world-famous Marriott Burger.

With this new chapter, the minds behind Surfers Paradise Marriott have certainly demonstrated they’re well-versed in the ways of creating a relaxing oasis.
