You can experience more fun for less on your next family holiday at Australia’s Favourite Family Resort!

When it comes to planning the perfect family holiday, there are so many things to consider. There are the obvious issues of cost and where to go, but also the challenge of choosing a destination that appeals to the kids, is still relaxing for parents, and has plenty of activities to keep the whole tribe happy!

If you’re planning your first family holiday, or have run out of ideas for this year’s trip away, we’ve got you covered! Check out our top tips for planning the ultimate family holiday that won’t break the bank.

Choose The Right Destination

We are so lucky in Australia to have so many amazing destinations right on our doorstep, but all that choice can make it even harder to decide where to go! The Gold Coast is a no-brainer for family holidays, however, with year-round sunshine and warm temperatures, not to mention some of the world’s best beaches and incredible resorts.

Voted Australia’s best family resort for the last 10 years, Paradise Resort Gold Coast is in the heart of the action, with Surfers Paradise beach and Cavill Avenue a stone’s throw from the resort. That’s if you ever want to leave!

Give Yourself Time

If you’re wanting to make the most of your family holiday and avoid living out of a suitcase, it’s important to set aside enough time to make the whole process worth it. Whilst a couple of days might seem like the most cost-effective option, you’ll be heading home before you’ve even had a chance to settle in…and you could be missing incredible savings!

When you book five nights or more at Paradise Resort Gold Coast, you’ll receive $500 to spend on food, drinks, and attractions to help parents can kick back and relax, plus loads of BONUS extras for your kids to enjoy as well! Imagine being rewarded for extending your family holiday? That sounds like a pretty amazing deal to us!

Opt For A Resort With Everything Included!

Planning a family holiday is exciting, but it can also be a real headache when you think about how much you have to organise. The chances of getting everyone to agree are also pretty slim! By choosing a resort that offers you everything you could ever want in one convenient location, you’ll never have to worry about family arguments over food or entertainment options again!

Paradise Resort Gold Coast has its very own lagoon pool, spa, and huge water park that will keep your kids busy for hours! They can also head to the  Zone 4 Kids Club which has nine themed play spaces or try laser tag, ice skating, or rock climbing. There’s something for everyone!

As a bonus, with the incredible deal* the resort has on offer at the moment, if you book now and travel on selected dates before August 2022, you will receive $500 in bonus extras! This includes one fully supervised Kids Club or Teen Club session per person (0 – 17years), 50% off any additional Kids Club or Teen Club sessions, 25% off ice-skating, 25% off laser tag, and unlimited use of the waterpark, pool, and spa!

Prioritise Flexibility

With everything going on in the world at the moment, prioritising flexibility is a must when planning a family holiday. With Paradise Resort Gold Coast, you can be reassured that you are making the best choice, with the ability to change your dates for free should your plans change! There is also a huge range of different accommodation types offered at the resort to cater to families of all shapes and sizes.

So what are you waiting for? Get the whole gang together, plan the ultimate family holiday, and make some incredible memories! Book now at www.paradiseresort.com.au where every day is heaven for kids…and paradise for parents!
