we stayed at the soul in a 3 bedroom unit on the 16th floor. The views were amazing and the location was fantastic. The unit was a fair size but i thought a little disappointing for the $600 plus dollars a night we paid. Overall the kids enjoyed the pools and the location. I wouldnt stay there again as i... More

We stayed in a 1 bed on 33 floor for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. The hotel looks lovely and the rooms are well equipped, brilliant bed and bath, but the view is the best. Being directly on the beach and in the middle of surfers you never need to go far but it was not noisy and... More

My family stayed Soul on March this year. On arrival the foyer was stunning and my niece asked if we could live here forever. Biggest surprise on arrival was that we had been upgraded from a 3 bedroom to a sub-penthouse on level 63. When we walked in - the apartment – and the view – took our breath away.... More

I booked a 1 bed suite for my wife and I. She has been very ill the last 9 months, fighting cancer and another disease. I wanted it to be special for her as we haven't had much to smile about lately. The look on her face was priceless when I opened the door to our room. We had been... More

Just had the best time. Room was beautiful with stunning views. We were on the 43rd floor. Service was excellent, overall atmosphere is classy and welcoming. Not cheap but worth it. Very well designed and built hotel. We will be back.

Soul at Surfers Paradise was an amazing place to stay. The rooms were beautiful, the location is mind blowing, the facilities are outstanding and the service was exceptional. I can understand why the price is that it is, however I do wish it was cheaper to allow me to stay for weeks on end rather then just the one night.... More

Absolutely stunning views. The location is perfect for restaurants, shopping and of course the beach. It was difficult to leave the apartment in order to experience Surfers! Fabulous... More
