My room had a full kitchen, dinning room, lounge room, 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. Located in the esplanade close to Caville Ave and miles of white surf beaches. Excellent staff, service & location. It is one of the new high rise hotels. It has 77 levels. It is the best 5 star hotel on the Gold Coast.

The Soul has the advantage of being ideally situated in the heart of surfers. We had 2 weeks there with 3 kids in a 3 bedroom apartment on the 54th floor. Breathtaking views, well appointed for self serve or just pop downstairs to one of the local restaurants. The room was cleaned each day when we returned from the beach.... More

Staying at Soul was one of the best apartments I've stayed at. Although it was pricey, it was worth the expense. I paid $200 more for a Sky View apartment, which I believe is for an apartment on level 40 or above (we were on level 52). Other family members who stayed didn't pay for a Sky View but got... More

Stayed there for a few nights at the start of May with my sister and felt like an absolute princess. It was truly more than I had imagined. Beautiful views, clean amazing rooms, great location and excellent staff who make the difference. I highly recommend this Hotel to all and cannot wait to go back.

We stayed on level 5 for a week in mid July. It was a great location (being just meters from Cavil Ave) within walking distance to many great restaurants and events around Surfer's Paradise. The room was very spacious, 2 bedrooms/bathrooms, and was very modern and well decked out. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only issue was that we were... More

We stayed in room 58/02 from Monday 7th to Friday 11th July 2014. It was a Sky View two bedroom apartment. I hoped the photos on the website looked like reality and that tripadvisor reviews were accurate. They were. Praise where praise is due. Yes it is expensive but the quality of the apartment and the facilities are really excellent.... More
