Rydges Gold Coast Airport Open For Business

Talk about timing. Just as the Queensland border re-opens to (almost all) other Australian states and territories, Rydges Gold Coast Airport has at last thrown open its doors to take advantage of the rush. It’s been a long time coming – and does not disappoint!

We’re big fans of the Rydges brand thanks to its inclusion in the Discovery hotel loyalty program, which includes both Priority Guest Rewards and Global Hotel Alliances. The perks are the best of any other program we’ve tried. The hotels themselves are always stylish, comfortable and well-placed for business too.

Looking right at home in the sunny Gold Coast, this impressive new property boasts 192 guest rooms and is located a minute walk from the Gold Coast International Terminal, five minutes from Bilinga and Kirra beaches, and a short drive from Surfers Paradise.

There’s plenty on property to enjoy onsite too, like the hotel’s 25 metre resort-style swimming pool and a fully equipped gym with cardio machines overlooking the airport runway. Runway Restaurant & Bar is open for poolside and a la carte dining, or you can visit the Salty Fox Rooftop Bar (opening mid-November) for sundowner drinks while soaking up views of the tarmac, the hinterland to the west, and the ocean to the east.

The property offers fully equipped oastal or concourse view guest rooms – each featuring amenities designed to accommodate both short and long stays – together with 24-hour reception, complimentary Wi-Fi, and free undercover car parking.

The hotel design features have been carefully curated to reflect the unique lifestyle of the Gold Coast, with themed murals and artworks that bring to life elements of the Sunshine State, from local flora, to the famous surf beaches and the iconic Gold Coast skyline.
