Welcome To Sanctuary Cove

Hello and welcome to InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort. Our Concierge team will happily offer you insider tips on what to enjoy at Sanctuary Cove and we are eager to share our local knowledge about what to do and where to go.

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort is the first InterContinental Resort property in Australia and is situated on the northern end of the Gold Coast within prestigious Sanctuary Cove. The resort is set amidst lush gardens, and is home to a spectacular beach lagoon pool. A holiday at this timeless resort offers pure escapism and relaxation coupled with the convenience of being only minutes from Australia’s favourite theme parks, beaches, international golf courses and breathtaking hinterland.




Start your day with an energetic run over to The Country Club for an early morning class. Enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast in Cove Cafe followed by a stroll through The Marine Village where you'll discover a variety of specialty shops including fashion boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and cafes. Stop for a coffee and marvel at the amazing array of spectacular boats housed in the world-class marina, before finishing your morning with a round of golf on The Palms, Sanctuary Cove's championship golf courses which has recently undertaken an $8.8 million overhaul by internationally recognised designer Ross Watson.


After golf head back to the resort for an afternoon of relaxation and indulgence. Treat yourself to a massage or treatment at Champions Day Spa and spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing around the spectacular beach lagoon pool. Enjoy a delicious afternoon High Tea in Cove Cafe, before heading back to your pool lounge. This is after-all a holiday. However, for those wanting to get out and about and explore the Gold Coast, Concierge are on hand to help plan the perfect afternoon.


Enjoy a pre dinner drink in The Verandah Bar before relishing in a delicious dinner in the Resort's signature restaurant, The Fireplace. Reminiscent of a private dining room in a large manor house, The Fireplace offers contemporary provincial style wood fired cuisine featuring the best quality locally sourced produce. Guests will delight in ambience of The Fireplace and the theatrics of having chefs prepare meals in front of their eyes in the wood fired ovens. An after dinner stroll along the boardwalk overlooking the marina is the perfect way to end a perfect evening.



Warm sunny days and cooler evenings

South East Queensland weather is a comfortable, sub-tropical climate. Temperatures average mid to high 20 degrees celsius all year round. When it rains on the Gold Coast, being sub-tropical any storm activity or grey skies tend to clear up quickly, and the sunny Gold Coast skies reappear.

There is no obligation to tip in Australia

You aren't obligated to tip in Australia. Australian's believe in tipping when they have received good service, so tip when you see fit.


Smoking is banned from restaurants, shopping centers, bars, clubs, public transport, taxis and entrances to public buildings. There are dedicated areas for smoking which are clearly signed. Fines apply to individuals who smoke outside of these designated areas.


Native Wildlife

Sanctuary Cove is home to many native wildlife including kangaroos. The best time to view the kangaroos from a distance is at dawn or dusk when they are out feeding You’ll see them mainly on the golf courses. As they are wild animals it is strongly recommended that they are admired from a distance.

The Resort's Architectual Design

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove resort's Great House is of a distinct Queenslander design. Queenslander designed homes can be identified by the 'tin and timber' look and raised living spaces allowing for ventilation below which is needed during the Summer and Spring months of the year. This design was first introduced in 1840's and has been a permanent design feature in the state of Queensland with local governments implementing conservation laws to keep the distinct look in the local suburbs.

Home to Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is a four day event held annually at Sanctuary Cove. It is a key event on the Asia-Pacific Boat Show calendar, attracting more than 40 000 visitors (on average) each year. The Show displays a wide selection of marine products and services including superyachts, luxury power cruisers, power and sail multihulls, trailerable craft, kayaks, jetskis and watercraft plus engines, electronics, navigational gear and marine services.

The Pines- Arnold Palmer Signature Course

As Australia's only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines is revered as one of Australia's best and most challenging courses. Carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. The Pines offers a very special golfing experience.

Sanctuary Cove

To celebrate the opening of Sanctuary Cove, five days of celebrations were held over the second weekend in January in 1988. International acts Frank Sinatra and Whitney Houston headlined the two main concerts at the event which also saw performances from The Boy From Oz's Peter Allen and legendary vocalist Julie Anthony amongst others. By day the entertainment line-up continued, showcasing the best of the Sanctuary Cove lifestyle with a full program of ultimate sporting events.
