The Space

Stage One of this exciting new Gold Coast development opened its doors at the beginning of November 2018, just in time for summer and the Christmas holidays. A 30-level tower soaring above Surfers Paradise, it’s easy to spot from afar thanks to its bright, nine-metre-high ruby red sign, and besides a great location, guests can enjoy an alluring combination of spacious apartment style accommodations along with views of either the beach, the hinterland, the waterways, or in some cases, all three. Much care has been been taken in the design to combine contemporary style with practicality where the apartments are concerned. What you have at The Ruby Collection is akin to a home-away-from-home, with all the creature comforts included, along with all the pros and perks of a hotel. The ground floor lobby sets the stage for what’s to come; lashings of light coloured marble, comfortable furnishings, and attractive artworks. 

Where We Stayed

The Ruby’s 88 one-bedroom apartments are surprisingly spacious, ranging from 54 to 65 metres square, and they’re distributed between levels two and 29. Accommodating a maximum of two guests, they’re ideal for couples on a romantic holiday, and if you request a high floor location, you’ll enjoy views of the Gold Coast which will linger long into the memory. Besides a spacious balcony, which you can use to relax, savour the views, or enjoy a casual meal, the apartment comes with a lounge and dining area, and a separate bedroom. The stylish decor features a palette of neutral and natural earth tones, with luxury furnishings and artworks, polished wooden floors, and splashes of colour from the floor rugs to bed cushions. The apartment also has a super comfortable couch and queen bed, and two smart TVs; one in the living area, and one in the bedroom. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen, which means you can enjoy lazy nights in your apartment after a busy day on the beach or exploring, and cook in or enjoy takeaway with all the comforts of home. Loves 

  • The bright, beachy and contemporary décor.
  • The creature comforts from signature bath and body products and a hairdryer, to pool towels and umbrellas.
  • The full kitchens, allowing guests to properly self-cater.
  • The staff, who were on hand to help with anything.

Insider Tips   

  • All the accommodations are gorgeous, but for a real treat, or to accommodate a group of friends, book a 3-bedroom Sky Suite; located on levels 19-29, they offer an alluring combination of space, combined with jaw-dropping views.
  • The hotel is completely non-smoking.
  • On the day you leave, as check out is at 10am, if your flight isn’t departing until later in the day you can store your luggage and continue to enjoy Surfers Paradise.

    I think there's a very good description of the Rees Hotel and also the Ruby. It makes us want to get to visit even more. It looks like the Ruby has everything we could ask for and more.

    Looks like a cool place to stay, love the idea of apartments with hotel facilities. Pity it's not on the beach front though like Peppers.
