I celebrated my birthday weekend at Soul in June. My husband and I don’t get to see each other often, and all I wanted was the perfect weekend away to relax, eat great food and simply enjoy some down-time. The staff were exceptional, beginning with the very helpful Sam in Reservations and the delightful Assistant Manager Chris at Reception. Both... More

My family stayed here for a week and we were so impressed! We have never stayed at a place like it! Highly recommend for a luxurious stay! The pool and spa is amazing! The gym facility is also great! Everything is really new and kept clean! Also in a great, central location!

We were on L33 which had amazing views of the beach. Location is extremely convenient; close to many shops, access to private carpark & just across the road to the beach. Facilities... you have to try the outdoor spa! Even on a relatively cold morning, the spa was perfect... lying there looking up at the sky was relaxing. Highly recommend... More

Amazing views, beautiful modern, luxurious apartments (although not particularly large), perfect central location, fantastic facilities (both the indoor and outdoor pools are AMAZING) and very good value for money. This maybe the best all-round 5 star apartment hotel on the GC for a couple, might be a bit too small for families or 2 couples if you are looking at... More

What can I say? This place is luxurious, classy, and just top notch in every respect. Worth every cent we paid. From the very outset, we were called two weeks prior to check our confirmation, followed by an email with information to assist our check in. This already gave me a good impression about the level of service Thank you... More

Spent a weekend at Soul with 6 mates recently and this complex surpasses everything on the Gold Coast.....amazing views to compliment the absolute premium facilities this property offers. No 5 star property can acclaim this rank without the 5 star service....from the concierge to the ladies at reception to the cleaners and security.....they were welcoming and serviced your every need....

The service apartment is so close to the beach with fabulous seaview! The kitchen was almost brand new when we were there and it was fitted with Bosch appliances. We actually preferred having our meal on the balcony instead of going to the restaurant!

Amazing hotel with everything that I wanted. It was close to the beach and in the heart of surfers paradise. We had complimentary parking with our room which was a bonus. The view was just amazing. Watching the sunrise was spectacular. Room had air conditioning which was great considering the temperature at night was around 30 degrees or there abouts!
