QT Gold Coast Levels Up With Luxury Rooftop Cabins

A hotel within a hotel is a rare concept in the world of hospitality, but if you look hard enough you can see examples of such a thing in places like Las Vegas – the NoMad there sits within the Park MGM – and now, Australia. Well, sort of. Revealed this past weekend, the aptly named qtQT Gold Coast is a focused luxury offering inside the already lush QT Gold Coast, just a stone’s throw from Cavill Avenue.

While one could view it as a completely separate offering, qtQT is more like an extension of the long-standing QT Gold Coast, which already offers 293 guest rooms and suites. Hence, the rather inventive name – a small accommodation concept piggybacking off a larger one.

Revealed this past weekend, qtQT Gold Coast is a previously unused lower rooftop space that’s been turned into unique accommodation featuring six luxury cabins designed for two people with a private deck each. They can be either booked individually or the entire space can be reserved exclusively for larger groups. the latter a primo option for groups of 12 looking for their own open-air playground just minutes from the beach.

From photos released this weekend, it looks like QT’s long-standing collaborator and award-winning designer Nic Graham has done a brilliant job taking the small home trend that’s been so central in travel over the past few years and reshaping it as per QT Gold Coast’s beach-chic brief.

The cabins are soft with natural textures and earthy tones while the surrounding space is rich with greenery, an al fresco dining area and a fire pit. Aesthetically, it looks like a bit of breezy Burleigh Heads has been sketched onto Surfers Paradise.

QT has also filled the smaller details with locally-minded amenities like I Love Linen robes and sheets, and Drift candles, while the standard smart TV has been replaced with off-the-grid features like board games and coffee table books. There is some tech though – you’ll find tablets for ordering room service by the bed and high-end Dyson SuperSonic hairdryers in the bathroom.

Anyone who remembers Melbourne’s charming St Jermone’s, a rooftop glamping hotel, might be seeing something similar here. Replace the tents with cabins and dial up the beachside luxury.

Guests at qtQT are given the option of bespoke itineraries to explore different parts of the hotel, from rooftop picnics and morning yoga to whisky tastings and sushi-making classes at QT’s stalwart Japanese restaurant Yamagen, as well as treatments at SpaQ. Anyone staying in the cabins also has access to the stylish pool precinct, which has long been known as one of the more fashionable poolside areas on the Gold Coast.
