Family favourite Paradise Resort Gold Coast is set to re-open in September after receiving a major revamp while it was closed during the coronavirus lockdown. Instead of standing down staff, the resort’s general manager, David Brook, offered them with the opportunity to be repurposed throughout the resort, with chefs on paintbrushes, housekeepers working in gardens, and kids’ club attendants cleaning out the waterpark. “They all pitched in to work on everything from maintenance and cleaning, to engaging with local tradies and larger renovation projects,” Mr Brook says.
When the doors reopen, guests will be welcomed into a refreshed lobby with a new check-in desk and an area to relax while the kids explore Dusty’s Jungle Gym.
The central resort area, which features two giant waterparks, a lagoon pool and spa, has been given a makeover, with both waterparks re-painted, all safety netting replaced, a new soft floor and grass laid and the entire area resurfaced. The Adventure Playground has also been moved next to the large waterpark to make way for the new ‘Zone 4 Adults’ area.
On-site mini-mart, ‘Splashes’, has been completely gutted, and will return as a new retail and grocery store stocking a wider variety of essential holiday needs and boutique clothing. The Bistro is also undergoing a renovation and will waddle back as ‘Penguins Restaurant’.
The first 66 rooms in Dusty’s Digs are also being refurbished from top to bottom, with new bathrooms, carpet, paint, flooring, beds and furniture. They are scheduled to be ready before Christmas 2020. All other rooms will be sanitised and given a general maintenance check prior to re-opening. The second stage of the accommodation renovation is set to begin in 2021, with all rooms due for completion in 2022.
