There are beaches, but then there are resort pools, which are basically just as good, if you don’t consider the fact that they don’t have sand and that there are tiles at the bottom instead of seaweed. Whatever the case, you’ll enjoy just the same, especially if the resort is in the vibrant, colourful beach town of Sunshine Coast.

The thing with visiting a popular holiday destination is that you won’t run out of options when it comes to resorts because they’re virtually everywhere; in fact, if you go by rental car in Sunshine Coast and try to scour the town for good accommodations on your first day here, you’ll find so many options that you’ll find it difficult to settle for just one. But that would be a waste of time if you do that, so you’d better plan ahead and consider your travel basics, budget, number of people staying with, and all other prerequisites prior to booking in order to zero in on the resort that would best fit your needs.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help you make the best choice.

Here’s a couple of resorts you can check out:

Just a stone’s throw from the famous golden surf beach in Maroochydore stands the Chateau Royale Beach Resort, a spacious property decked in immaculate white with a modern, towering building boasting of fully self-contained beach houses and holiday apartments. Luxury is at the heart of Chateau Royale, with each unit offering panoramic ocean, hinterland, and river views from Mooloolaba to Noosa. The resort perhaps boasts of the best views in all of Sunshine Coast, so the spacious, private balconies in each room are indeed already luxuries by themselves.

Chateau Royale houses several types of accommodations for you to choose from: two- and three-bedroom apartments, the luxurious 3-bed rooftop penthouses, and the tropical beach houses. The multi-level Maroochydore beach houses are directly across the surf beach, with rooftop terraces, single lock up garages, and private rear courtyards. They’re basically like mini-resorts on their own, so they’re ideal accommodations for large families on vacation.

The two-level holiday penthouses, on the other hand, each come with a fully equipped kitchen, exclusive rooftop area, a large, private balcony, two baths, complimentary broadband Internet access, and TV with DVD player. More than the luxury of the resort itself, the majestic, golden-green views of Maroochy River, Coolum Beach, Noosa, Maroochydore Beach, and the Hinterlands all come together to provide a symphony of colours and spectacular, picture-perfect scenery to guests, a stunning vista that will make your vacation even more unforgettable.

Or you can go surf the famous golden Maroochydore Beach and retreat in one of Chateau Royale’s well-appointed penthouse suites at the end of the day. The choice is yours.
