Noosa has long been one of the country’s favourite holiday destinations. No wonder with views across the endless blue of Laguna Bay and fringed by National Park, it is undoubtedly the perfect spot for a little downtime. Staying on Hastings Street makes for the ultimate Noosa getaway – no driving or hiking to where the action is when you are in the centre of the Noosa universe.
Hastings Street means shopping, coffee, restaurants and most importantly the beach. The beachfront resorts have been put on notice since last year’s multi-million dollar renovation of Seahaven.
Now, Seahaven is Noosa’s largest absolute beachfront resort. Re-opening last year after a massive nine month, $16 million dollar renovation, the resort offers views, sea breezes and the luxury of a 5-star resort with all the practical touches of a holiday apartment.
The re-build meant every detail was completely re-imagined. The 68 apartments have it all – views, sea breezes and the luxury of a 5-star resort with all the practical touches of a holiday apartment. When the alluring siren of the beach calls all you have to do is grab a towel and out the balcony door to Noosa’s Main Beach. In the mood for a little retail therapy? Out your front door and you’re in the middle of it all.
A Noosa holiday means adventure for some with so many spectacular spots to climb, hike, surf or paddleboard. But when your body craves and your soul needs ultimate relaxation, a spot like Seahaven does tick all the boxes. This is the spot where the biggest decision of the day is what award-winning restaurant to book for dinner.
For those who want to cook up a storm the expansive fully equipped kitchens at Seahaven make it easy. Eat inside and catch up on the Real Housewives of Melbourne or just listen to the waves while you barbecue on the balcony. The contemporary décor is slick but the lounges are just right for the requisite afternoon snooze. That beachfront balcony calls for a pre-dinner Margarita as the ocean slips from blue to silver and then ink.
Bathrooms come stocked with ThisMagnificentLife’s favourite premium bath products – Appelles. Penthouse ensuites feature deep spa baths and rain showers. And it doesn’t matter if you’re the messy type as the apartments are all serviced daily.
There are one or two bedroom penthouses with private rooftop terraces to take in the uninterrupted views from the six-person spa pool or outdoor shower. There are studios for the budget conscious with kitchenettes or the beachfront apartments with direct access to the 4 heated pools or beach.
At Seahaven Wi-Fi is free and the fully equipped gym makes it a little easier to work off the inevitable over-indulgence at the best Hastings Street eateries.
Frolicking dolphins in the calm waters just steps away often greet Seahaven’s early risers. An easy stroll to Noosa Woods will take you to one of Australia’s best-kept secrets – where the Noosa River meets the ocean. And the best people watching is just across the street at Aromas.
Hastings Street is that wonderful combination of Aussie laid-back cool with a touch of European sophistication. Even just a weekend here rejuvenates the work-weary. Seahaven makes for the holiday you want in Noosa’s heart.
