For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

The Langham, Gold Coast has 180-degree views and a swim-up bar

It’s the latest resort to bring glitz to the Gold Coast, the first new beachfront hotel to open in Australia’s holiday capital in more than 30 years. Comprising three towers, including The Jewel Residences, Gold Coast, managed by The Langham opened in 2022, offering travellers a selection of accommodation options: hotel rooms, suites and one- to four-bedroom apartments. And, as well as your spacious abode, you’ll also have stunning views of the Pacific Ocean or the hinterland. Whether you’re travelling as a family or large group, or perhaps just for two, The Langham, Gold Coast has something for every traveller.

Jewel Residences

Jewel residences range from one-bedroom to the Four-Bedroom Ocean Penthouse with 180-degree vistas of both the Hinterland and Pacific Ocean. All Jewel Residences have a full kitchen, living room and spacious balcony. Plus, housekeeping service every second day. Enjoy the finer things from signature Diptyque toiletries to top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances. With more space to play in, these apartments are superb for hosting dinner parties and for having friends around for an evening drink. Or, for simply soaking up the view.

I stayed in a Two Bedroom Skyline Ocean Residence on the Jewel Residences’ 48th floor. It has separate living spaces, bedrooms with the cloudlike Langham Blissful Beds, three bathrooms with Diptyque toiletries, a full kitchen and separate laundry. Making the apartment feel even more luxurious are three palatial balconies from which to soak in the panoramic views: the vivid blue Pacific Ocean, the gorgeous green of the Gold Coast hinterland, and the snaking Nerang River.

Leisure and dining at The Langham, Gold Coast

Onsite are two swimming pools. An indoor magnesium pool and The Langham, Gold Coast’s resort-style pool, with a swim-up pool bar and sand lagoon. The hotel is also on direct beachfront so you can stroll straight from the pool onto the sand. After you treat yourself to a reinvigorating experience at the Health Club and Chuan Spa, dine at one of the six dining options. From great coffee at 26 & Sunny to Akoya’s refined yet casual all-day Australian-style dining, with you’ll be spoilt for choice. T’ang Court is the resort’s Cantonese fine-dining restaurant, which has Michelin-starred sister restaurants in Asia. This restaurant was the deserving recipient of an Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat within four months of opening. The menu has specialities like 14-day, dry-aged duck served three ways (a pancake with hoi sin, bun with lychee and leg with plum sauce), pillowy salt and pepper tofu and steamed toothfish with house-made soya sauce.

If you’re a high-tea aficionado, Palm Court is beckoning, with its delectable savouries and pastries. Fancy an afternoon aperitif? The Lobby Bar offera a relaxed and stylish retreat.  Think fine wines, a selection of bubbly and a lively atmosphere.

Chuan Spa

The property’s wellness retreat, Chuan Spa, offers treatments guided by the principles of traditional Chinese Medicine and the five elemental forces – wood, fire, earth, metal and water. I’m booked in for the Harmony Massage and, after completing a brief questionnaire, my therapist identifies my element as earth. The treatment is tailored accordingly, starting with a breathing exercise and chanting, followed by acupressure with an earth elemental oil. Massage is my favourite form of self-care and I generally make a point to never fall asleep in one, but somehow, as my therapist presses down on my acupressure points and softly massages my face, hands and feet, I drift into a sweet slumber. The blissful session concludes with beautiful bespoke tea, which I receive in a pod in the Zen lounge. I walk out feeling like I’m floating on a cloud.
