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

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

Nirvana by the sea is close to so many fantastic eating venues and bars and shopping facilities. Coolengatta is such a great place to visit when in Kirra beach, we walked there no... More

Thank you for you wonderful review Sarah-Jane. It is a great spot down here at Kirra Beach and Coolangatta out of the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise.

Everything about this property ticked all the boxes.. It was clean, comfortable, modern, inviting, opulent and very comfortable. We had a two bedroom unit on the 12th floor with ocean views.

My husband and two teenage boys enjoyed a wonderful 6 night stay. Our 2 bedroom unit on the 8th floor (rm 802) was fully equipped and perfect for watching the spectacular storms that rolled in each afternoon. The pool, sauna and spa were great.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Nirvana by the sea. It was luxuriously furnished, clean and superbly located (across from the beach and near many good restaurants). Our apartment also had generous uninterrupted views of the sea and beach. I highly recommend staying here.

Great apartment, awesome views. Kirra beach is a quieter suburb, but Coolangatta down the road has most things. A cluster of shops and restaurants are below the hotel. Nice theatre room. We will definitely return for the great apartment and awesome views.
