Employee of the Year 2016 Runner Up Announced!


Posted in: Resort



From a turmeric latte to double espresso, Paradise Resort guests are queuing up to get a hold of one of Garren’s freshly made cups of heaven.

With a smile that can light up a room and his early morning energy vibes, it’s no wonder Garren was awarded Employee of the Year Runner-Up!

Garren has been part of the Paradise Resort team for only a year and a half but is already known as one of the barista legends to provide that morning kick start caffeine goodness.

“It’s important to just always stay happy and positive” says Garren when asked about his daily motivation. 

On average, our hard working Paradise Resort baristas can make up to 10,000 coffee’s each month for our guests! See below for more fun facts about Garren and what he recommends guests do during their time at Paradise Resort Gold Coast!

It would have to be the people I work with.


Who is your favourite Paradise Resort Character?



What do you recommend guests do whilst staying at Paradise Resort?

Definitely utilise the 4 hours free childcare per day at the Zone 4 Kids Club. And kids, make sure you dunk Mum and Dad in the dunk tank!


What do you most like to do to unwind?

Go for a long walk along the Gold Coast beaches. 


Do you have any hobbies? 

I've recently joined StrongMan, a weightlifting-based sport where I compete in several events involving different aspects of mental and physical strength, speed and endurance. It does require training 4-5 times a week but it is so rewarding. 


During your next visit to Paradise Resort Gold Coast, pop by the poolside cafe and be sure to order yourself a cup full of happiness made by one of our amazingly talented baristas!
