Renowned as a playground of shimmering coastal lines, endless outdoor fun and an icon of natural beauty, Queensland’s Gold Coast is the golden child of sun, sand and surf. A short 40 minutes north of the Gold Coast, you will discover the palm-lined oasis of Sanctuary Cove: a rare mix of accessibility and seclusion; moments from urban amenities, yet surrounded with a relaxed coastal ambiance.

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, a five-star resort – and Australia’s first InterContinental Resort-branded property – is nestled in the heart of Sanctuary Cove, located just minutes from the iconic Marine Village and a world-class Marina. From the maze of boutiques and cafes in the Village, to access to three of the Gold Coast’s most sought-after golf courses, you will also find yourself within 15 minutes of Queensland’s famous theme parks, including Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet ‘n’ Wild and Seaworld.

The Resort is located midway between both Brisbane Airport and Gold Coast Airport (Coolangatta) on the northern end of the Gold Coast.
