It’s a poetic tale of the unreal and the whimsical, where lyrical sagas live alongside extravagant narratives. From Surfers Paradise’ golden shores comes a legend; the gem in the golden crown; the ultimate in accommodation, play and stay: QT Gold Coast Hotel. There’s nothing capricious about QT: for the embodiment of fantasy is captured within this concept design hotel, like castles in the air; where 1950s- and 60s-styled feature walls and mosaics earmark the Gold Coast’s time – that from the vintage and present. This legendary dynasty is dreamlike, where hedonism and modern day lifestyle is manifested and exemplified in each room, from opulent rooms fit for kings and fitted with beds that princesses can daydream in, to balconies foolproof for serenading and woo-ing, featuring designer furnishings only ever whispered of in myths and legends.
And when that all special time of paganism returns for the Vernal Equinox where chickens and rabbits take over this fairy-tale world, this Gold Coast tribute to accommodation transforms from a mere swanlike reverie into the QT That Lays The Golden Eggs, presenting an Easter treat like no other. All areas of QT will come alight, with sweet and savoury Easter treats available in FIX Café and Bazaar Marketplace Restaurant, while Stingray Lounge Bar showcases their Easter Chocolatini cocktail.
For those who choose the moonlit trail to The QT to live, stay and play like kings, for as little as three nights between April 7 to April 25, the swanlike trance of QT transforms into a golden goose that just keeps on giving.
It’s the QT path to rainbows and dreams; a burnished package for rooms from $210 per night, where bedfellows are treated to two-for-one breakfasts at Bazaar.
But it is immediately upon arrival where our abiding bards and poets are gifted with the extraordinary QT Golden Easter Egg. Crack open this Golden Egg and the bearer is rewarded with a complimentary night far north, at sister parable QT Port Douglas. Created by pastry chef Gareth Keenan – famed across the land – the QT Easter Eggs are original and rare; the mould custom made in Belgium, and the foil wrapping sourced from New Zealand.
T’is indeed a contemporary QT ballad, to live long beyond the imagination of fairytales from yesteryear.
