Three word that I would like to descript: excellent, perfect, wonderful. Stay here for only 4 night, and don't feel like checking out. This is the place that I am looking for. Clean, spacious, beautiful, great environment and friendly staff. Fantastic sea view and great location. Very comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. I like the secured carpark with allocated...

We stayed 4 nights in the 3 bedroom sky room, and the apartment was fantastic value for money given the location, views and size of the rooms. Apartment was clean and well appointed, with amazing views across the beach. Pool on level 2 was adequate. Only issue is that you need to pay for wi-fi, which at most places is... More

Booked a 2 bedroom apartment through booking.com and it was easy from the start. Paid the difference at the hotel and were given our 2 keys. The hotel is just off the main road meaning it is easy to access without a lot of traffic. The rooms were terrific and had great views even from the bathroom! The outdoor balcony... More

Great position, close to beach (patrolled), eateries. Short car ride to Coolangatta around the point. Room as luxuriously appointed, clean. Kitchen - no storage containers if staying a while. The only pointer - ask for rooms above level 12 (road noise and lift entry both noisy if room in front of lifts).

I usually like to stay in a different place every time I travel to the coast - as part of my desperate and ongoing search for perfection. However, now that I have discovered Nirvana (literally!), the search is finally over. This place more than lived up to my very high expectations and I loved every moment of my stay. The... More

With a private theatre room, spa, gym, pools, sauna and steam room...there is always something to do to relax! Staff where incredible, and even helpful to us after check out. The rooms and view are amazing! Clean and gorgeous presentation and vibe. Will definitely go back if we are ever up that way again!

We decided to give Nirvana By the Sea a try for our regular trip to Coolangatta over the Christmas holidays. It turns out it was a very good decision. Nirvana is a serviced apartment type hotel with underground security parking. Our check-in was handled smoothly. Our room was on a mid level, but we still has wonderful sea views from... More

Wow. Kirra Beach is a beautiful place, and staying in a 14th floor three bedroom apartment at Nirvana by the Sea makes it an even better experience. The views are fabulous, the location perfect, the apartment is beautifully appointed and very roomy, the facilities are generally excellent, and the service at the desk was great. The Theaterette is brilliant, and... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Kirra Beach is beautiful and our 3 bedroom skyhomes are the best apartments to take in the amazing views. Our apologies if you felt the gym not adequate for your needs. There is a treadmill, exercise bike, rowing machine, weights bench etc. although not quite as big as a full gym. Some guest do... More

Nirvana By The Sea is a little bit of luxury tucked away in Kirra Beach. This is one of the most beautiful spots on the Gold Coast. Boutique shops just minutes away, and no crowds or noisy teenagers. Sandra is most helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are very friendly and cleanliness is excellent. Rooms are well... More

After discovering nirvana 5 years ago, we have just come back from our 6th stay. We tend to stay in the '05' apartments, which are front / north facing and larger. Great floor plans and plenty of room for a family of 4 to be together but still have personal space. Would also suit 2-3 couples as each room has... More
