I am amazed at the perfect hotel for vacation in Gold Coast. One of the tallest buildings in Gold Coast with breathtaking view of the ocean. Check in was quick and we were upgraded to skyview 2 bedroom apartments. We booked 2 apartments for our big family with kids. The apartments were very spacious with balcony access from both rooms...

I recently stayed at Soul with my daughter for three nights and really enjoyed my stay. It caters for family's and the kitchen and washing machine are a great help. The location is great and the building is new and feels fresh. The staff are friendly and more than happy to help. The only thing to be mindful of is... More

This hotel is the most amazing hotel on the Gold Coast. One look at the infinity pool overlooking the beach and I was sold on soul! Their standard room is much nicer than most hotels lead in room. It's a 2 bedroom (can be sold as a one bedroom) ocean view apartment with an unrivaled view of the beach. Location... More

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

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.
