WATCH: Paradise Resort reopens following extensive renovation

Fresh off an extensive $8 million renovation, Paradise Resort has reopened to the public.

The family-friendly resort in Surfers Paradise welcomed back guests on Tuesday afternoon, after closing in March to undergo a face-lift.

The hotel’s owners brought forward planned upgrade works when coronavirus restrictions came into effect, and kept 300-plus staff employed by having them help out with the refurbishment.


Paradise Resort now boasts a new-look lobby and reception, spruced up guest rooms, upgraded ice-skate rink and water park, and a brand new restaurant and gift shop.

General Manager David Brook told myGC the team is thrilled to be welcoming back guests.

“When our guests walk through the door, they are going to be blown away, especially returning guests because they have seen what it was and now they are going to see a completely refreshed property,” he said.

“It’s just amazing what has happened in the last five months.

“I couldn’t be happier! The resort has opened on time as promised to the owners and to the world.”
