Australian hotels that you never need to leave

Travel is about adventure, excitement and new experiences – most of the time. Sometimes, all of that takes a backseat as your goal is primarily to switch off, so you choose a hotel that is so good you never need to leave!
With five-star resorts, spas and activity-rich hotels popping up all over Australia, you don’t need to travel far to have a memorable Aussie holiday. In fact, all you have to do is check in, relax and as far as the rest of the world is concerned, check out.

1. For nature lovers: Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island, South Australia

With endless beach views, rugged landscape and more activities to keep you busy than you could ever see and do in one holiday, Southern Ocean Lodge has you covered from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. Perched atop a seaside cliff, every room has an incredible view and the entire establishment oozes style and relaxation.
Kangaroo Island, a 3-hour drive from Adelaide in South Australia and connected to the mainland by bridge, is widely known as Australia’s Galapagos Island. It’s home to a multitude of flora and fauna, many of which can be seen from the windows or the grounds of the Lodge.

With an on-site spa, you can spend your days enjoying facials, massages and treatments that will make you feel like you’ve reached heaven on earth. Or perhaps you’d rather take a walk through the surrounding bushland or along the beach. Whatever you choose to do, you can enjoy everything Kangaroo Island has to offer without ever needing to stray from the Lodge grounds.

2. For families: Peppers Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Queensland

Perfectly positioned for incredible views of the Gold Coast, Peppers Broachbeach is your home away from home, but better. With two gyms, a private cinema, teppanyaki barbecues, a thai chi lawn and two swimming pools, it’s not hard to see why Peppers won the 2015 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for Top Hotels in Australia.
There is also a sauna and steam room, as well as an outdoor spa to ensure you truly feel relaxed and rejuvenated for your return home. And while there are plenty of pristine beaches just outside the hotel front door for you to explore, the clean, cool waters of the hotel pools are simply too hard to resist.

Babysitting services are available for those travelling with little ones, so you can relax in the zen garden for some genuine time out, although the resort has been rated one of the best hotels for families, so there’s plenty to do together. Either way, you’re sure to have a fantastic time, whether you choose to leave the hotel or simply stay in.

Another great option is the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove, at the northern end of the Gold Coast. With kids activities through the school holidays, two glorious pools (including a giant lagoon pool with sand) and a buffet restaurants that suits all tastes, it’s the perfect spot to spend a few nights with the family.

3. For those seeking the nightlife: Crown Metropol, Perth

Five-star accommodation, crystal-clear pools, exclusive pool-side cabanas, the most luxurious spa in Perth, a kid’s club for those aged under 16 and incredible views across the city… This is what the Crown Metropol offers its guests. And who could ask for more? With all this and more virtually at your fingertips, why would you ever need to leave?
The poolside cabanas are equipped with TV, mini-bar and your own dedicated host, ready to fulfil your every delectable desire. And come nightfall, there’s plenty of nightlife located inside the Casino – yep, still inside the hotel!

The Hub is specifically dedicated to guests under 16, with gaming consoles, hockey, DVDs and a drawing table, among other things, that will no-doubt keep the kids occupied while you treat yourself in the spa or dance the night away in the nightclub. The Crown Metropol really is the hotel that has everything.

A similar experience is on offer at the Crown Metropol in Melbourne, which boasts no fewer than 40 restaurants and cafes on site, along with loads of nightlife and entertainment options.

4. For those who want to really check out: Qualia, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland

Situated in the tropical paradise of the Whitsundays, Qualia is well known as a luxury retreat that is so relaxing it’s difficult to leave. Planes fly to the Whitsundays from all capital cities, making this a surprisingly accessible island holiday getaway.
Once you check into your private apartment or suite, you’ll be greeted by wall-to-wall windows, which show off the crystal blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef. After you settle in you can explore the area or visit the spa for any number of treatments. Then, when you get peckish, dine at one of several 5-star dining venues.

For those who are a little more adventure-seeking, Qualia offers experience packages, such as snorkelling the reef, sinking a few holes at the internationally renowned golf course, or taking a helicopter ride around the island. Finally, finish off the day in one of the private bars and enjoy the tranquillity that only a tropical island offer.

5. For city-dwellers: Sofitel Sydney, NSW

Your deluxe holiday experience starts the moment you walk into the Sofitel Sydney, which offers a five-star respite from the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s CBD. To make the most of your stay, you must book into a Club Suite, which gives you access to Club Sofitel, their ‘hotel within a hotel’ concept.
It’s like your own little oasis of deluxe cuisine – including breaking, afternoon tea, evening drinks and canap├ęs and all-day refreshments – while also offering spaces to relax, hold a meeting, do a little work and achieve anything else you need while you’re in the city.

There’s even a butler service if you require it, meaning you not only don’t need to leave the hotel, but you don’t need to lift a finger while you’re there, either!
