Gold Coast Ruby Apartments Are What Travel Dreams Are Made Of

It sounds crazy, we know, but it’s actually possible to have a luxurious holiday WITH the kids.

Yes, you read that right. Luxury. And kids. At the same time.

We’re talking basking in the sunny glow at the beach, morning coffee from your private balcony, afternoon cocktails overlooking the pool, five star meals you DON’T have to cook or clean up after.

And all-day entertainment for the kids that doesn’t involve play doh, glitter or crayons. Well, it might. But in a fully-supervised kid’s club so you don’t have to worry about the mess.

Want in? Me too. Seriously, where do I sign up to make this happen?

Well, your holiday dreams are about to come true thanks to the all-new Ruby Apartments. These super-luxe 4.5 star apartments located in Surfer’s Paradise are opening in November 2018 (only two months to wait).

But we have an all-inclusive sneak peek (and the chance to win a five-night stay for the whole fam) right here. 

Ready to dive into the dream? Well, pour yourself a margarita, mummas, and let’s discover the Ruby difference!

Hellooo Gold Coast

If you’ve been to the Gold Coast before, then you know it’s a paradise for holiday goers. There are endless sandy beaches, several theme parks and heaps of entertainment year round. We’re talking markets, festivals, outdoor activities, animal sanctuaries and so much more!

Ruby Apartments are located smack dab in the middle of the action. They are owned by the same people who operate Paradise Resort. In fact, Ruby Apartments are located just next door. Featuring 230 apartments and 13 ground floor villas, Ruby Apartments have somehow managed to combine both luxury and family appeal into one.

They have a number of apartment options, all with free WI-FI, laundry and kitchen facilities. You can actually spread out while staying here with apartments built to accommodate EIGHT guests. No bed sharing for you! The queen size bed is yours. ALL yours (well maybe hubby gets a corner too).

Rooms with a seriously awesome view

The villas are great, but if you want to take your holiday to the next level, you have got to check out the Sky Suites.

Honestly, there’s no better way to take in the sights than from the 29th floor. And you don’t have to hike up a hill to get these picturesque views. Enjoy aerial ocean or Gold Coast hinterland views as you sip your morning cuppa and watch the sky come alive when the sun sets.

Ah the serenity.

Lounge around in comfort 

Step outside the room and you’ll find even more goodies, including a stunning pool with plenty of lounging spacegym, sauna and steam room as well as Stones Bar and Grill, serving up all-day Aussie favourites for the entire family. There’s also a Terrace bar, a juice bar and The Pantry to stock your room with the basic necessities. Like chocolate.

If lounging around a luxury pool all day sounds a bit dull, then you’ll love the heaps of adult-only activities scheduled throughout the week. These include Zumba, live music, trivia, cocktail mixology classes and wine and cheese tasting.

Sounds like perfection, but what about the kids?

Don’t worry. There’s plenty for the littlest travellers too, including a kids’ club (opening in 2019) and access to Paradise Resort’s kids’ club (next door) until then. Both kids’ clubs cater to tots 3-12 years and feature heaps of different themed rooms and daily activities.

On the hotter days, head through the gate and into the super stellar waterpark, also located at Paradise Resort. This is one of the best waterparks on the Gold Coast and all guests get free access. Whoo hoo!

With slides, squirters and super-soaking buckets, you can easily keep the kids entertained for hours.

There’s also daily children and family activities to explore including magic shows, cupcake decorating and teddy bear making. Plus outdoor movies, family trivia and giant board games. Oh … and the famous beaches and Surfer’s Paradise promenade are only a walk away.

It all sounds ahhhhhmazing, right? It’s also 50% off (for a limited time).
