With the warmer months comes inevitable weekend roadtrips, sunny weekends seaside and of course, camping in all it’s natural, laidback glory.
We’re big fans.
Perhaps you’re not a fan of the camping side of things, perhaps you don’t like packing your whole life into the back of the car including a makeshift house, cooking equipment, chairs, poles to hold up said makeshift house, all of the food, all of the things generally. We get it, it’s a lot.
No worries though because the answer has arrived and it comes in the form of glamping by the sea at a brand new boutique resort in Cabarita Beach.
It’s an Australian first called The Hideaway and it’s set to open in October amongst the natural bush surrounds of Cabarita and complete with balmy ocean breezes and views of the mountains in the distance.
As you’d no doubt know, the pretty little village of Cabarita is just a short 15-minute drive from the Gold Coast Airport, making it the actual perfect weekend getaway.
So The Hideaway is a boutique outdoor resort offering three styles of bell tents complete with Koala beds (the comfiest), lush lighting, soft furnishings and plush bath towels. There’s an array of open-air green spaces along with contemporary suite bathrooms and communal entertaining areas, built into shipping containers.
There are native plants placed all around, open fire pits perfect for gatherings with the gang and you may stay as a group with family or take your lover for a romantic little getaway close to home.
Now if you haven’t yet had the pleasure, Cabarita is a delightful little beachside town with award-winning restaurants and plenty of exceptional eateries and boutique stores to spend time wandering around in.
Of course there are plenty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed in the area too – whale watching (in season), surfing of course, picnics on the beach and the like.
All of lifes’ best things.
It’s pretty much the best luxe camping experience you can have and it’s right here on our doorstep.
Opening October 1st. How good.
LOCATION: Adjacent to Cudgen Reserve, Cabarita Beach
