Nirvana By The Sea
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Coolangatta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2017

I know it is a loose translation of the word, but it exactly what we experienced at this wonderful place to stay. My very first 10 out of 10 in fact.
The beautiful view of Kirra beach, the surf of Rainbow bay, Snapper rocks, and the blue Coral Sea, greeted us from the wide balcony outside our unit. In many years of staying at hotels throughout Australia, this apartment far exceeded our expectations. It was the cleanest, well fitted out home away from home we have had the pleasure of staying. The staff are friendly and efficient, the free parking is undercover and secure, with free wi-fi during your stay. The Miele appliances were spotlessly clean, with every utensil needed to produce your own inspired meal if you desired. The small extra, of a top quality coffee pod machine, made my day, as it took my favourite Nespresso pods. The TV was large enough to enjoy the latest movies available from reception, Foxtel, or online if you wanted. The ensuite in the main bedroom was magnificent and gave you a feeling of being in a 5 star Hotel, whereas the second bedroom and bathroom was more than adequate. Washer, dryer, you name it, you have it, at this well priced, well situated resort style accommodation. There is a choice of cafe or restaurants outside the building and they are so good they deserve their own reviews. However, if you want a good and filling breakfast, lunch or dinner, try the 'Kirramisu' Cafe and Restaurant. Once you have enjoyed your meal, you can take a refreshing walk along the beach to Coolangatta, or enjoy a swim at Kirra Beach, surf at Snapper Rocks, or return to the Nirvana and use the well appointed gym and lap swimming pool. As I said, ten out of ten.

Room Tip: Above fourth floor, and facing the ocean of course!

Unfortunately during our stay the outside of the building was being painted which meant we had limited access to the our private pool, and had our view obscured by scaffolding. Prior to our arrival, we were advised this might happen, and were offered a discounted price as compensation - the cost of the standard 2 bedroom apartment. Upon arrival, we confirmed that the pool was still unaccessible and assumed we were still getting the discounted price. Once we realised the price hadn't been discounted, we asked at reception and were told that we could access the pool anytime outside of 7am and 4pm, and instead of the original discounted price, they had instead waived the cost of the cot and high chair. In the end, we got to use the pool once. Disappointing, but we would still recommend staying here.

My family has stayed at Nirvana on at least 5 occasions over the last 6 years and have generally found it high quality and excellent service. We like the sky homes because the coastal views are just spectacular and the extra space is handy on a 2 week stay.

We have just returned from a visit after not having been here for 18 months. Really disappointed.

The place was undergoing a major reno which was painful. We found the quality of inclusions in our skyhome apartment were very average - glasses of multiple sizes and many basics we'd come to expect just not available. The dryer operates only periodically and the mid stay apartment service was little more than having beds made - even the toilets hadn't been cleaned.

We also found the 'strict no parties policy' we'd grown to love was not policed and the constant partying above our apartment was not dealt with once.

We love the location but this venue is no longer a must stay for us. When ours paying $600-$700 per night, the quality needs to be much higher than what we experienced....

Hi Hughtravel77, thank you you for taking the time to review our property and we take on board your feedback. In order to to keep the property to the standard you are so familiar with, we need to undergo renovations and we have started with the painting of the outside of the building. We don't think there is ever a good time to do this, but it does need to be completed. Once the outside is completed we will move to the inside of the apartments. It just doesn't make sense to do the inside until the outside is completed which should be mid July. As for the No Party Policy we do not accept this and if this has been the case, Reception can be called 24hrs and after hours service will notify the management and it will be stopped. We apologise if this caused you any inconvenience and we do hope you will be back once we complete all the renovations. Kind regards

I recently spent a week at Nirvana By The Sea with my family of four. The accommodation was just amazing and absolutely perfect for us. We felt relaxed and at home as soon as we arrived. We made use of the pool, spa and executive lounge area and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Easy access to shops, places to eat and a short walk from Coolongatta. The staff were friendly and very helpful, particularly once I realised we'd left some belongings behind. Fabulous place and we look forward to returning!
