Treat yourself to a luxury poolside indulgence this summer

In a private cabana at The Star Gold Coast no less.

Now that all of the Christmas crazy is behind us, we finally have an opportunity to actually put our feet up and relax before it’s back to work time. Let’s not talk about work just yet though.

You know what the perfect way your to put feet up and relax is? A massage at the divine Azure Spa & Fitness and then two hours of poolside relaxation in a private poolside cabana.

Excitingly that is a thing you can (and should) treat yourself to after a very strenuous few days of eating and drinking all the things.

The Star Gold Coast is where it’s all happening and if you’ve ever had the pleasure of even laying eyes on their stunning pool you’ll know there’s an excellent time to be had.

The details are these: you (and a lucky pal or perhaps the love of your life) each get a 60 minute Effective Touch massage plus two hours of private cabana hire, a bottle of Chandon, bottles of FIJI Water and pool towels.

For just $450. WOW. Sign. Us. Up.

What is an Effective Touch Massage you ask?

It’s a gentle yet effective energy restoring massage bringing harmonious balance to the body and the mind. A range of massage techniques are used to eliminate energy disruptions and dissolve tension and tightness, with neck and eye pillows to encourage warmth and relaxation.

It’s perfect for times of stress and over-activity – which is always but particularly after the Christmas period right? Right.

If all of that sounds like exactly what you need right now, get booking. There are two time slots daily – 10am to 1pm and 1pm to 4pm – so you may experience extreme morning relaxation or extreme afternoon relaxation.

Tough choice hey.

For bookings call 07 5592 8501 or email [email protected].

Time to treat yourself friends, you deserve it.

So do we. Catch you poolside.

As far as Saturday arvo’s go, what’s your idea of perfection? Some time on the sand with a good book or mag (like the new Inside Gold Coast magazine perhaps, insert shameless plug here…), a hike in nature with the girls, or maybe a chilled day at home by the pool?

All very worthy contenders for a textbook Saturday on the Gold Coast. Yet, you can send your weekend prime time into the stratosphere by donning your fave summer frock, grabbing a few friends and heading to Nineteen at The Star’s Bellini Saturdays from 4pm-7pm.

Elevate things a notch — nineteen floors, in fact — and indulge in a special 3-hour package of unlimited flowing Bellinis and a grazing style share menu. Whilst savouring every sip and mouthful on our beautiful city’s highest rooftop terrace, you’ll be privy to breathtaking views of the captivating vistas of Broadbeach and the Pacific Ocean.

Four different fruity flavoured Bellinis are available, all of which have been tried and tested….and tested again. (You’re welcome!) Set to enchant your tastebuds, there’s Peach, Pear, Passionfruit and Lychee Bellinis on offer and trust us, picking a favourite is like picking the next thing you want to watch on Netflix – incredibly hard.
