While we may be known as Bris-Vegas (and rightfully so), the Gold Coast is coming for our throne with its latest entertainment precinct that will also serve as Australia’s largest day and night venue! Slap on a sarong and your sweetest sunnies at Cali Beach Club – the luxury beachside playground that’s truly elevating a lounge by the pool.
Soaring four stories above street level, this slick space is fit with cosy cabanas, a world class restaurant, multiple premium dining outlets, bars, sports facilities, an outdoor cinema and a bonkers view of the Surfers Paradise beach and skyline. Enter via a glass elevator a la Wonka, exit onto an impressive rooftop beach volleyball court, cross a bridge over the pool and find a swanky restaurant boasting unobstructed ocean views.
Now that you’re familiar with the entry, turn left to find three, vast beach-edged pools and an army of sun lounges and daybeds alongside bars, exercise areas and open-air showers. There’s also an outdoor cinema that will have you swapping popcorn for margaritas and movie-talkers for the sound of the surf.
Set to make waves in early 2021, Cali Beach Club is already slinging packages and prizes here. We’ll keep you updated with more to come, and you can start practicing your Baywatch-esque exit from the pool (slicked back hair like Pamela Anderson = yes, hair all over the face like The Grudge = no).
