Australia’s Newest Boutique Hotel
Halcyon House, a beautiful coastal hotel situated only 15 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport, has the perfect combination of cool and quaint. Those looking to relax, unwind or even experience a little adventure will be in for a treat. With modern walls finished in white that glisten in the Australian sun all year round, this house sits beautifully on the coast and has a gloriously maintained pool and beach.
The rooms, which offer private courtyards for balmy summer evenings, feature a king size bed, individual furniture touches and if you’re lucky- ocean view. Be sure to check out the spa and get a feel for Australian sourced oils, lotions and woods.
If adventure is what you’re looking for, a short walk to Cabarita Beach assures great surf. Enjoy the complimentary hotel bicycles for a unique way to see the coast or head North towards Kingscliff and Fingal Head for some boutique shops and tantalizing walking trails.
If the surfing intrigues, why not go for the hotel’s two-day surf experience. Taught by a pro-surfer, Joel Parkinson the course will teach how to ride a wave, do some tricks and also includes two nights stay and a long list of hotel treats and access.
A number of eco hikes and tracks for the daring types are just a short drive down to Byron Bay. Wategos Beach however, is a hidden treasure perfect for those who like to unwind by the waves.
The hotel’s very own award winning chef, Ben Devlin is known for his passion, youth and enthusiasm when it comes to preparing incredible food for his guests.
Devlin likes to celebrate everything the hotel represents within their restaurant, affectionately named Paper Daisy; coastal food, NSW’s heritage and classic with a modern twist. Both the lunch and dinner menus make for exciting reading, from crayfish to grass fed beef, glazed lamb to local cheeses, the menu alone makes for a culinary adventure.
