Paradise Resort is well underway with its latest redevelopment plans transforming this popular resort into a purpose-built, family friendly, apartment complex consisting of four individual towers, featuring spacious self-contained units, a myriad of entertainment, activity and interactive facilities providing guests with much more amazing holiday experiences. Dubbed ‘The Ruby Collection’, this transformation will showcase the culture of the new Surfers Paradise – urbane and innovative whilst maintaining the focus of a familyfriendly and relaxed destination. The new development will retain many of the family friendly features it’s become renowned for, whilst delivering a brand new product that resort guests have been requesting for many years.

Ruby will showcase the culture of the new Surfers Paradise “After 35 years of catering to the domestic family market, it is now time for Paradise Resort to catch up with the changing expectations our guests are asking for and away from the traditional hotel style accommodation. The Ruby Collection will offer self-catering apartments

whilst retaining many of the food and beverage options preferred by our return guests. We have outgrown our current building and have been limited in offering further facilities due to the properties current structure. For us to meet the growing needs of our guests we believe that it’s now time to grow with them,” says General Manager of Paradise Resort and CEO of The Ruby Collection, David Brook. “Across all four towers we will create a place that retains the fun for our younger guests with the addition of many more opportunities for the adults to get away and relax in stylish surrounds with quality food and beverage offerings. While it will still include its celebrated family friendly areas, Ruby will also offer world class entertainment, boutique bars and quality retail stores - somewhere the entire modern family can enjoy regardless of age or stage in life.” For more than three decades, Paradise Resort has become a family favourite, attracting visitors far and wide, thanks to its child-friendly facilities, onsite activities, and unique, friendly atmosphere. Features such as the famous on-site water park allowing parents to enjoy lunch and a drink while their children play, the ever-popular kids club, movie nights, resort mascots and magic shows, will all remain as the new venue takes shape, but on a much larger scale. “Our focus in stage one will be on delivering a quality family friendly

holiday experience with apartment style accommodation, which has long featured as a strong request in our current guest feedback,” says Mr Brook. “Families want more space, cooking facilities and an area such as the lounge room to sit and relax in when the kids have gone to sleep - our current hotel rooms are unable to provide this. Whilst not all the same


facilities enjoyed at Paradise Resort will feature in stage one, we want our guests to grow with us and be excited about what’s still to come in stages two to four.” The redevelopment comes with the purchase of the resort by property developer William O’Dwyer, founder of Ralan Group.

delivering a quality family friendly experience Mr O’Dwyer first came to the Gold Coast as a backpacker from Ireland with his then girlfriend (now wife) in the late 80’s, where he spent a few months working in the kitchen at Jupiter’s Casino, and fell in love with the city. Having been involved in the marketing and development of residential real estate since 1993, Mr O’Dwyer launched Ralan Group in 1998, naming the business after his first two daughters, Rachel and Lauren. The company has since successfully delivered 38 separate projects across NSW. But William had a dream to develop something special right here on the Gold Coast, a place where busy families could come together and enjoy all the comforts of home, relax and unwind while creating precious memories in the heart of the Gold Coast - Paradise Resort offered the perfect location to make it happen. He quickly snapped up the opportunity, naming the future project after his third and youngest daughter, Ruby. “The Ruby Collection is a game changer,” says Mr O’Dwyer. “It will headline the transition of Surfers Paradise into a world class destination and elevate the level of amenities

available to residents and visitors.” The Ruby Collection is set to change the Gold Coast skyline forever, reaching new levels in terms of stylish family accommodation and entertainment. Mr O’Dwyer says the lifestyle and entertainment facilities to be delivered as part of stages two and three will be a significant improvement on what is currently available at the existing resort. “I have spoken with the staff at Paradise Resort regarding the plans for Ruby and they agree that the new shopping, dining and entertainment precincts included in the project are a much-needed replacement for the ageing facilities at the resort,” he says. Stage one is on track to open at the end of 2018 paving the way for work to commence on stages two, three and four all due for completion by 2021. By the time the project is complete, The Ruby Collection will encompass four towers ranging from 30 to 60 floors and amass 1600 architecturally stunning 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with over 2990 rooms. “Our vision is to create a quality family friendly holiday experience that provides entertainment, activities and facilities synonymous with the expectations of the Gold Coast but will also bring the extended family together so that everyone, no matter what age, family size or stage in life, Ruby will provide a place to escape the realities of every day and enjoy family time”.

It is honestly endless offerings for kids at Paradise Resort! From toddlers to teenagers, there really is something for kids of all ages. As Annabelle is two we got so much use out of the waterparks and huge jungle playground, that in the five days we hardly got to do much else because she enjoyed them so much!

It’s also nice knowing that as a kid friendly resort, no one bats an eyelid to your child throwing a tantrum for taking them out of the pool, because most likely the other kids are doing it as well. It’s nice to get a reassuring smile from another parent than be made to feel your ruining someone’s holiday with your screaming child!

Recently our family went on a little family holiday to the Gold Coast, a little getaway before our second little babe is born. Being heavily pregnant I knew I wanted to head somewhere sunny and relaxing, but also mindful my husband and daughter would want some fun activities and excitement!

Even with all these great aspects, there is one thing that you simply cannot buy and that’s the atmosphere! There is such a great vibe at the resort, from the second you check in to the day you leave. The staff are such a delight and always happy to go above and beyond on any request, always happy to stop for a chat and evident they all love their job!

Paradise Resort scooped up another 4 award wins in 2016, voted by the readers of three popular parenting magazines. For the sixth year in a row, the readers of Holidays with Kids Magazine (HWK) voted Paradise Resort Gold Coast the best in Australia, in the 4 stars and under category. The Magazine declared the Resort as ‘everything a family could ask for – and more!’ including the only resort Australia-wide with an iceskating rink, giant Z4K Waterpark and Zone 4 Kid’s Club and the fact that ‘… you’re spoilt for choice.’ Earlier in 2016 and for the 4th year in a row Out and About with Kids Magazine announced Paradise Resort the winner of two categories “Australia’s Best Family Resort” and “Best Resort for Babies and Toddlers”. And rounding out the year with 4 out of 4 wins, at an event hosted by popular TV presenter Natalie Bassingthwaighte the Australian Mother & Baby Magazine readers voted Paradise Resort the “Most Popular Family Holiday Destination” ahead of other popular resorts in Australia and Fiji. Resort General Manager David Brook is delighted at having 4 award wins, especially when its voted for by the readers. “There’s a lot to be proud of and being positioned at number 1 by your customers is a great honour. Our team are very focused and work tirelessly in ensuring each family enjoys their stay. From the complimentary daily session in the Zone 4 Kids Club that caters for 0 to 12 year olds, to the exclusive daily activities, entertainment and outdoor waterparks, we strive to exceed the expectations of families visiting the Gold Coast.” “We recognise that a family holiday is much more than just a hotel room; it’s about the experiences and memories encountered as a family the minute you step out your hotel room. That is what makes for a true family holiday experience.”

There’s also a paddling area with a gently sloping beach entry. The Pool, Spa & Junior Waterpark are heated year round. The Pool, Spa & Junior Water Park is heated ALL year round.

They can become a construction worker and build a skyscraper or test their brains in the Kids Club exam, there’s even a chance to pass their drivers test. Of course the Kids Club lolly shop is the main attraction where kids can spend their hard earned dollars on lollies,

The Zone 4 Kids club also has a range of options available for lunch or dinner from the ‘Kids Eat For $9.90 menu’, so whilst the kids are having fun parents can truly relax and enjoy some precious downtime.
