First flight to Reunite winner enjoys luxe stay with family at Dorsett Gold Coast

One lucky local was able to reunite with her family while enjoying a luxurious stay at the Gold Coast’s newest hotel over the weekend.

Jodie Peachey won Hot Tomato’s First Flight to Reunite competition last year, giving her the chance to fly in some family members to spend a weekend together at the Dorsett Gold Coast.

Chatting to Galey, Emily Jade & Christo on Monday, Jodie said they had a great time at the hotel.


“It has been awesome – really good,” she said.

“The rooms are nice. Comfortable, cute and modern.

“It has been raining but we have the grandkids with us, so we have obviously been to the pool… The grandkids attitude was ‘well we have our swimmers on’!”

Jodie’s sister and partner joined her for the special weekend stay.

“Because covid has struck us yet again, I only managed to get my little sister and her partner up here. My kids have covid, and Mum and Dad have covid too,” she told the radio hosts.

“My little sister flew up from Sydney with her partner. I hadn’t met her partner because of my circumstances with my hubby struggling with cancer over the last couple of years.”

After her husband sadly passed away, Jodie told Galey, Emily Jade & Christo she entered the competition so she could have a nice experience while remembering him.

“I put his typical $20 on roulette and I came out on top, so he would be impressed,” she said.
