It may be ‘Heaven for Kids’ but there are many other reasons why Paradise Resort is also paradise for parents.

We love our kids. Of course we do. But there are definitely times in life when there’s nothing that us parents need more than a little kid-free downtime and the opportunity to reconnect with our beloved partners. That’s where Paradise Resort fits right in. It’s promoted as “heaven for kids” but there are so many reasons why it’s also a literal paradise for parents.

Ask yourself - how long has it been since you ate a meal while it was still hot, enjoyed an uninterrupted chat or had some time to yourself? There are two ways to find some adult downtime at Paradise Resort and both are easy to achieve.

With Paradise Resort being an easily accessible oasis in central Surfers Paradise, if you can find a willing family member or friend to have the kids for a night, the resort is so easy to reach. No travel to organise. No precious time wasted. And once you check in, you’ll feel like you’re a mile away from the world.

But if you are bringing the kids with you, Paradise Resort’s Kids’ Club is another great option to give you and your partner some slices of kid-free zen on a weekend away. And you can totally relax and unwind in the knowledge that the minis are just around the corner and are being cared for in a safe and fun way. In fact, trust us, the kids will want to leave you, so they can hang at the Kids’ Club. Many of the Paradise Resort accommodation packages actually offer up to four hours of complimentary care in the Kids Club daily. Bonus. However, you find your down time, make sure it's with Paradise Resort. One word sums up a weekend away here: Easy.

DO NOTHING Take a guilt-free break and relax in the adults outdoor spa area located next to the big waterpark and open daily from 9am-7pm. Equipped with an outdoor heated spa and lounge chairs, it offers parents a place to unwind and soak up the sunshine child-free. It’s the perfect location to devour a good book or magazine.

GET ACTIVE OK. We’re not going to be Judgy McJudgersons, but, if the idea of downtime is actually getting a sweat up, Paradise Resort can work with your needs too. The Cardio Gym is equipped with a treadmill, bike, rowing machine, fit balls and yoga mats, is open 24 hours and is free for use of hotel guests only. Children are not permitted in the gym at any time. Perfect.

DRINK UP Now you’re talking! On Mixology Mondays, discover the art of mixing cocktails with a demonstration by the resident mixologist. You will be entertained with tips and tricks on how to blend your own cocktails at home and invited to taste a range of seasonal cocktails and enjoy special offers at the bar afterwards. You can even play “Cocktail Tasting: The Game Show” where each contestant tastes four different cocktails before braving the contests and trivia questions. The Cocktail Champions will be rewarded with gold medals and drink vouchers, so make sure you arrive game ready to take part in this hilarious game show. And then we have two important words for you: Sangria Sundays. All-day glasses of sangria are just $5. Enough said.

EAT UP Set your inner Masterchef free with Paradise Resort’s various cooking demos and tastings. For example, they host cheese and wine tastings on Wednesday at 4.30pm where participants relax for a blissful hour to sip on wine and share an array of cheeses.

MUSICAL MELODIES You can either listen to the soothing sounds of the visiting musicians and their live music, or, take part in some fun musical games. ‘Super Star Karaoke’ will bring back all the hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s to let you show off your singing skills while letting your hair down. And ‘Finish That Lyric’ is a game to test your music knowledge and see how well you really know your lyrics.
