Sunshine all year round, beautiful beaches and some of the country’s best seafood restaurants: the Gold Coast is home to Australia’s happiest family holiday memories.

And now it’s time to make new memories at The Ruby Apartments, a self-service apartment complex perfect for families, with all the facilities of a luxury resort. Newly opened in November 2018, and just a two-minute walk from Surfers Paradise beach, this modern property boasts one of the best locations and views around.

But there’s even more that makes this new addition to the Gold Coast very special indeed…

1. It hosts fun activities for grown-ups (did someone say cocktail making?)

Admit it: you’ve felt a tiny bit jealous when they arrive at a holiday resort and see the fun-packed kids’ schedule, right? Well, it’s time to embrace your inner Peter Pan because at The Ruby Apartments, grown-ups haven’t been forgotten. From a guided morning stretch to Aquadynamics water workouts, Zumba classes, cocktail mixology, cheese and wine tastings, live music and trivia nights – you’re guaranteed to have just as much fun as the kids.

2. …and cupcake decorating and teddy bear workshops for the kids

Of course, there are plenty of things to keep the little ones happy, too. The Ruby Apartments’ Junior Kids’ Club caters for children aged four and under and offers a choice of fun-filled, and fully supervised sessions, every day. Until The Ruby Apartments’ Kids’ Club for older children opens in early 2019, children aged between five and 12 have full access to Paradise Resort’s Kids’ Club next door. Sessions run morning, afternoon and evening and involve dance parties, movie nights and endless fun and games. They’ll also have the chance to take part in a VIP meet-and-greet with resident rockstar Ruby Rocket and William the Bear – don’t forget to take a selfie! Other activities include a teddy bear workshop, cupcake decorating, and magic lessons with resident magician Chris Riches – there won’t be a dull moment during your stay!

3. It’s a two-minute walk from Surfers Paradise

The location couldn’t be any better. Take the short two-minute stroll to Surfers Paradise, one of the Gold Coast’s most popular beaches and home to a huge array of shops, cafés and restaurants. There’s also plenty of parking onsite, making it easy to bring or rent a car and explore further afield with your family. From theme parks like Dreamworld and Warner Bros. Movie World to areas of natural beauty like Springbrook National Park – the Gold Coast has so much to offer.

4. There’s a waterpark

Guests at The Ruby Apartments can enjoy full access to Paradise Resort’s waterpark. Three storeys high, the park boasts a myriad of slides, water cannons and climbing frames, along with a giant bucket that fills with 600 litres of water before emptying every few minutes over guests below in one enormous splash. The Ruby also features its own 21-metre swimming pool with luxurious submerged loungers for adults, and an interactive splash zone, perfect for little swimmers to cool off and have some fun.

5. There’s an incredible kids’ menu

The property’s onsite Stones Bar & Grill makes family dining a cinch thanks to a kids’ menu with fun desserts for everyone. From a Lindt chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and marshmallows to gelato topped with Smarties, and ice-cream sandwiches – there’s plenty to tempt little ones. Those feeling brave can also try the resort’s unique mocktails: Frog in a Pond (a chocolate frog in juice) and Grandma’s Teeth (gum-and-teeth lollies in juice). The adults meanwhile can dine on the likes of fresh oysters, sashimi, creamy vegetable laksa, lobster, steak and more.

6. It combines Gold Coast apartment-living with first-class resort facilities

Gone are the days of having to choose between the freedom of a self-contained apartment and the facilities of a hotel resort. At The Ruby Apartments, families can have both. Apartments come equipped with a kitchen, living room and laundry, while the shared resort facilities are comparable to those of a first-class hotel. Enjoy on-site dining, a 24/7 fitness centre with gym, sauna and steam room, 21-metre lap pool, exercise classes, daily activities and nightly entertainment.

7. Guests have access to a 24/7 digital concierge

Inside your apartment, you’ll find a handy tablet, which acts as your digital concierge throughout your stay. There’s no such thing as a stupid question or a badly timed request, with Ruby Ambassadors ready to go above and beyond to deliver dazzling service to your whole family day and night.
