“Lovely rooms, reasonable view”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

The rooms were very clean and a really good size. The view from the room was a partial ocean view from the back end of the building. It's not the usual water view I would prefer but it was still reasonable. The dining down stairs was quite good.

Room Tip: pay a bit more and get a 3 bedder on the front of the building.

What an amazing week we had at Nirvana and what a find !
A little concerned the location may not have been great but on the contrary we were close the shops and amenities at Coolangatta and it enabled us to explore vasts areas of Northern NSW and the GC that we had not seen for a long time. It was also quiter and just overall more relaxing that the usual GC tourist locations.

The rooms are immaculate - spacious, well appointed and beautifully furnished. The North/NE facing aspect is excellent with sunny mornings and shady afternoons on the hugs wrap around verandahs and the amenities of the complex, especially the Cinema, where a delightful bonus.

On top of that the service was excellent. Such a freshing change in an industry where so many seem to have bought themselves a job that they are disinterested or disenchanted in.

We could not fault Nirvana and will definately return. The only issues is - what if everyone finds out about it ? shhhhhhh.....................

The hotel was new, clean, great layout, tastefully furnished and in a convenient location. We stayed with our two children aged 4 and 1 and despite rainy weather all week, we still had a relaxing holiday. The restaurants underneath the hotel were reasonably priced and catered well for our children. The hotel would offer even more in summer with the outdoor pool, bbq area and teppanyaki grill area.

Room Tip: Rooms on roadside experience traffic noise but have great views.

We enjoyed our time at Nirvana By The Sea. The apartment was brand new & very spacious with full kitchen appliances. Great view of the ocean & sunrise from inside the apartment & the balcony.
The on site private theatre room provided a great night of entertainment & the outdoor pool & spa proved very relaxing.
Our stay was very reasonably priced for the type of accommodation & service received.
The staff were friendly & very helpful throughout our stay.

We spent 6 night at NBTS, honestly the best relaxing holiday we have had in a long time and that is with 2 kid (15 months and 3yrs), we stayed in 1501, the sub penthouse, the views in my opinion were excellent as we had the best of both worlds, the ocean view and inland (and a great view of the airport with none of the disturbance). The private pool was excellent, the only flip side was there was bit of a chill due to a wind tunnel effect of the layout of the pool area. But the heated pool was the perfect place for the kids who enjoyed it inspite of the chill in the air.
Eating out recommendation made by the staff were spot on and great value for money.
We will definatley visit this location again.

From the moment we rang to enquire about Nirvana by the Sea and spoke to Barbra it was first class service. We have stayed at many places in our time and this is now number one on our list and our destination of choice. The Location, The Facilities, The Rooms, The Service are like nothing you will ever see! So read everyones reviews and ring the hotel to book now! (Ask to speak to Barbra... She is Amazing)!

Nirvana By The Sea, is first class, from the minute you walk into the reception, to the view from your balcony you know you are in for a great stay.
All staff we had contact with during our stay were more than accommodating.
The location is perfect, for everything from picturesque coastal walks, surfing, to short vehicle trips for sightseeing, and for meals you have the choice of nearby cafes, resturants, pubs and surf clubs. Close to the Gold Coast airport, means you can sleep in and take a five minute taxi trip and you are there.
If you want to stay at the Gold Coast, away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise. This is the place.
We booked online but reception assured us we could call and book direct with them.
