GOLD COAST, Australia - One of Australia’s newest and most unique hotels, Hilton Surfers Paradise, is proving to be the perfect destination for those travelling overseas to escape the Middle Eastern summer.

The first of the hotel’s two towers, is already open and operational, and offers spacious one, two and three bedroom residences, which are not only self contained, they also come with the benefit of Hilton’s 5-star services and facilities including 24-hour reception, valet parking, daily housekeeping, mini bar and more.

Scheduled for completion in September, the final product will be even better with a combination of stylish guest rooms and residences complemented by a host of leisure and dining facilities including four pools, a spa, sauna, restaurant, bar, delicatessen, day spa, theatre, executive lounge and meeting spaces.

Hilton Surfers Paradise is currently playing host to many of the 15,000 Middle Eastern visitors who converge on Australia’s Gold Coast each year as Ramadan coincides with the Northern Hemisphere summer and school holiday period.

Hilton Surfers Paradise General Manager David Kelly says the hotel has been the destination of choice for many of the families visiting from the Middle East recently, including the Royal Family from Qatar.

“The renowned Hilton brand and our reputation for service, combined with our spectacular product, and location on the Gold Coast’s most famous beach, has proved a strong drawcard for Middle Eastern guests,” Mr Kelly said.

“We were honoured to have recently hosted the Qatar Royal Family at Hilton Surfers Paradise, which is an immense endorsement of the facilities we have on offer.

Managing Director of Gold Coast-based Lawand Tourism, an inbound tourism operator for the Middle East, Toufic Lawand, said Hilton Surfers Paradise was a natural choice for the market.

"The residences at Hilton Surfers Paradise are exactly what a large section of the Arab tourist market wants - a global brand, renowned for its quality, offering a high standard of service,” he said.

“The centrally located apartment-style accommodation gives visiting families a home-away-from-home comfort and space.

“When fully operational, Hilton Surfers Paradise will undoubtedly further add to the Gold Coast's attraction to Arab tourists".
