Luxury Resort Review: Peppers Soul, Surfers Paradise, QLD

By: Joanna Hall
Share the love

Where Is It: On the beachfront in Surfers Paradise.


Why Go: Jaw-dropping views, spacious luxury apartments, close to everything.


Best For: Couples looking for a stylish and romantic beach getaway with added convenience.


Three Things We Loved: The views, the spa bath, the pool.


The Ultimate Factor: Views sweeping down the Gold Coast to Coolangatta.




The Gold Coast is one of the top holiday destinations in Australia - and for good reason. And when it comes to hubs, Surfers Paradise is it; a beachfront community with restaurants, bars, activities almost every week, and a long stretch of golden sand beach stretching south to the NSW border. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, there is a plethora of accommodation choices to suit all budgets. But if you are looking for something luxurious which really ticks all the boxes, from location to facilities, Peppers Soul is hard to beat. It stands opposite the sparkling beach in the heart of Surfers Paradise, stretching 77 storeys into the sky, and although the accommodation is a range of self contained apartments, just entering the impressive lobby the high ceiling and marble staircase sets a tone more akin to a five-star hotel. It also has all the attractions of a full-service resort, from a beachfront pool and gym, to 24-hour reception, a top notch on-site restaurant and room service. 


The Accommodation:


Peppers Soul has a range of 287 apartments all boasting wrap-around balconies sweeping views. At the smaller end of the scale are one and two-bedroom ocean view apartments, with sky apartments located from floor 40 and up, and three and four-bedroom sub-penthouses as good as in the clouds. There are also two-bedroom plunge pool apartments on the fourth floor with ocean views and a private plunge pool. Apartments come with full kitchens and laundry facilities, Foxtel channels, spa baths, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. The decor is a combination of contemporary luxury and beachy.

Where We Stayed:


Our home for the night was a One-Bedroom Ocean View Apartment situated on the 39th floor; even though it was only half way up the building, it still had jaw-dropping panoramic views of the beach and the hinterland from the wrap-around balcony. Ideal for couples it had everything you could want for a beach holiday. The full kitchen had an Italian coffee machine, and European appliances including a double fridge, a dishwasher, stove top, microwave, and it was fully equipped with plenty of cutlery, plates and utensils. If you fancied a night at “home” in front of the TV you could cook a gourmet meal here without any issues. There were two flat-screen TVs, one in the living area and one in the bedroom, and seating for six on the huge balcony as well as a day-bed if you preferred lounging around with a good book. The bedroom also opened onto the balcony, and had a really comfortable king sized bed with crisp linens, and from the walk-in closet, the bathroom had a decent sized spa with a privacy blind, a double vanity, and a walk-in shower. The pallet of colours was easy on the eye with plenty of earth colours including cream, soft grey and biscuit, with splashes of colour in cushions and artwork. We loved the ice-maker built into the fridge, the luxury toiletries and the spaciousness.


What Else Is There:


Peppers Soul has two places in which to take a cooling dip. The 25 metre, tiered outdoor pool overlooks the beach and has wonderful views of the coastline, and there is an indoor 25 metre lap pool for cooler days or inclement weather. There is also a sauna, steam room and indoor hot spa, a fully equipped gym, and a “secret” garden where you can enjoy your own outdoor barbecue. The onsite restaurant, Seaduction, is where you can enjoy breakfast if it’s include in your room rate. It’s served buffet style with indoor and al fresco seating, offering everything from freshly baked bread, fruit and cereals to hot options including eggs, bacon, sausages and more. Also open for lunch and dinner, Seaduction is a vibrant bar and restaurant after dark, and one of the Gold Coast’s premier hatted venues. And of course being in the heart of Surfers Paradise, there’s the beach, surfing lessons, activities for kids and more all on your doorstep.


The Verdict:


Surfers Paradise has plenty of apartment resorts to choose from, but if you’re looking for something spacious, modern, with resort facilities and unbeatable views, Peppers Soul has ticks all the boxes and more. If you're heading here for a holiday or to attend the Commonwealth Games in 2018, it could just be your perfect home away from home.
