With its beckoning beaches, glistening surf, speciality shopping, enviable nightlife, and endless adventure, the Gold Coast is a world class destination – right here in our very own backyard. Amid 70 kilometres of uninterrupted coastline, it's no wonder so many flock to the golden sands and exceptional stays on offer. The hard part? Choosing exactly where to book for your next getaway!
Redefining luxury is Australia’s first JW Marriott. Re-opened in Dec 2020, the 5-star JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa is a stunning new rebrand of the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa. With a $35million rebrand seen across gorgeous new aesthetics, it’s inspired by its natural surroundings and embodies the beauty and relaxed mood of coastal Queensland. With that comes the brands iconic service, surprise and delight touches, plus a lagoon pool area that rivals that of an ocean reef experience. What also gives them an edge is their series of five to 10-minute relaxation activities daily that will leave you feeling nourished and revitalised.
Its Australian launch has been in collaboration with My Holiday – the leaders when it comes to exclusive holiday experiences. What sets them apart is that they’re the type of team that don’t offer just any kind of mainstream holiday; they only offer what they would like to do themselves and make sure every package includes something extra whether its resort credits, room upgrades, spa treatments or more. Every bespoke inclusion is tried, tested and crafted by their very own travel experts who package the best of every destination into a seamless holiday-in-a-box experience with the best resorts, rooms, tours, and all those little things in-between (the key to creating unforgettable holiday memories). It’s something My Holiday ambassador and cover star Natalie Gruzlewski is all about. “I love the level of detail that goes into creating every package. Their travel experts handpick holidays that are bursting with phenomenal value and exclusive inclusions unlike anything I’ve ever seen before,” she says. A local Gold Coast resident herself and My Holiday ambassador for three years, Natalie is an expert when it comes to this slice of Queensland and believes there is so much to discover in the region, even as a local. “We help Australians not only find perfect holidays to the most idyllic and luxurious destinations, but discover an amazing way to travel that is truly one-of-a-kind,” she says. “My role as ambassador for My Holiday is a natural alignment in supporting my ongoing passion for travel. Not all travel brands are built the same, but My Holiday care as much as I do and they create holidays exactly the way I’d do them.”
My Holiday have crafted an exclusive launch package for the ultimate VIP luxury getaway. With three much-needed nights on offer, breakfast daily, a bonus $250 wine and dine credit, complimentary signature cocktails, bottle of wine on arrival, a late checkout to ensure you’re well rested, and valet parking included, there’s a bespoke deal for Style readers here.

Poolside from the Pavillion
Nothing screams ‘out-of-office’ quite like cocktails and culinary eats by the pool. Switch off as the hotel serves you poolside from the Pool Pavillion along with its retro food van. We highly recommend the truffle fries!
