Our ‘need it now’ stay at Seahaven Noosa

We heard the calling. “Put the brown bananas and homemade sourdough down… it’s time to let loose after lockdown!” Our staycation at luxurious Seahaven Noosa Beachfront Resort couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s washed away weeks of home-schooling worries, got us out in the sunshine again and delivered the very best in post-pandemic pampering.

Coming out of COVID couldn’t feel any better. Here’s why…

The location is actual paradise
After months of being cooped up at home, a change of scenery was definitely called for. Nothing beats waking up to the sound of waves breaking and a beachfront view. Our stay at Seahaven was the reset we all needed, helped along by the fact that Noosa missed the memo that it was actually winter.

You can be as active or relaxed as you like in Noosa. Our days went something like this: beach, pool, beach, pool… repeat. With three heated pools, a spa and a toddler pool to kick around in, there was no chance of us getting bored.

One of the things that we especially loved about this resort and believe makes it truly family-friendly was its direct beach access.

It’s good because there is no road between you and your seaside playground. Tiny feet stepping onto beautifully manicured lawns that flow into soft, white sand, beats burning on bitumen any day. It’s an easy walk to the patrolled surf beach or you can set up camp right out the front of the resort. It really doesn’t get any better than this.

We didn’t have to pack the kitchen or the sink…
The only thing getting in the way of our splash day routine was eating and staying hydrated. Relaxing is thirsty work and we needed to fuel our adventures! The boys loved that four ice cream shops could be found within walking distance of Seahaven, with Happy Pops a definite favourite. As for us, we were just happy not to be eating any more of my homemade banana bread. We had the delights of Hastings St to choose from… also known as happiness on a plate.

During our stay, we were happy to pick what we wanted and order takeaway to have back at the resort. Our apartment included everything that we needed for meal times… including a coffee machine and pods for us. The view from the room wasn’t too bad either!

Tip: Guests looking to upgrade their experience can pre-order gourmet picnic and breakfast hampers or even request the services of a private Chef.

Click and collect services from supermarket chains (we found a few a short drive from the resort) are also an option for those looking for a little luxury. It’s great not to have to pack everything or take time away from your holiday to go grocery shopping.

It’s the little details that make it luxe
Speaking of packing, high on the list of things that this mum didn’t need to think about bringing was: pool towels, beach chairs and a shade umbrella. These are all complimentary, with pool towels changed daily with your apartments servicing. Boogie boards, stand-up paddleboards and surfboards are offered at a 50% discount. Cots and highchairs are also available for hire, as are rollaway beds for families looking to sleep more than 4.

The set up was sweet. They sat here for all of 2-minutes. Then it was mine!

Even though we were outdoors most of the time, the boys thought that their bedroom in our apartment was pretty special. Their ensuited twin room included a television for watching blockbuster movies in bed, complimentary wi-fi and “critical” device charging points at each bedhead. The kid-cave vibes were strong, but fortunately, the calling of the ocean was stronger and we were able to get them out of the apartment each day!

Kids-Cave Vibes. “Just five more minutes please mum!”

If you are considering a stay, this freshly renovated resort has a range of modern room types to choose from. We found our two-bedroom apartment to be bright, clean, spacious and perfect for what we needed. Larger family rooms are also available, but be sure to book early as these sell out quickly.

In our downtime (who are we kidding… it was all downtime), it was heavenly to run a spa bath at the end of each day, with one of the three TVs was always switched to a music channel, perfectly soundtracking our stay.

VERDICT

Whether you need a weekend escape or a longer vacation, our stay at family-friendly Seahaven has shown that you don’t have to go far to getaway. We hope that this next phase of COVID life passes quickly and that families outside of Queensland get to experience it soon too.
