ULTIQA Air On Broadbeach Review



Spending a few days on the Australian Gold Coast had been on our cards for a long time.

So, when the chance came, we didn’t think twice before packing our bags. However, once we’d reached the location and taken in a few of the sights, we faced the question of accommodation.

Thankfully, a quick internet search settled the matter for us, and our family of five soon found itself heading to ULTIQA Air On Broadbeach. It’s one of the finest resorts on the Gold Coast and has access to all essential amenities.

Hi there! We’re the Ejmonts (Jolene and Andrzej), and today we’re going to share our experience of staying at ULTIQA with our three daughters (Katie-Lee, Lily and Avalee-Rose). And if you’re like us, we’re sure you’ll just love it here.

Let’s check-in.

The fastest option, however, is getting there by car or shuttle. It takes only about an hour’s drive, and you’ll not feel the exertion kicking in.

In our case, since we live not too far away at the Sunshine Coast, we opted out for a road trip in our family car.

Once we’d arrived at the resort, we met the excellent staff there. Since we were five members (that’s including our three girls), we checked into the 3 Bedroom Ocean View Apartment.

Check out more info about available apartments at ULTIQA Air On Broadbeach here.

3 Bedroom Ocean View Apartment

The very first thing that struck all of us as we walked into our rooms was the vast blueness of the ocean that stretched right in front of the apartment.

The rooms here are north-facing and provide excellent views of the Pacific Ocean. At the same time, you also get a breathtaking sight of the Surfers Paradise coastline.

The apartments are spacious and expansive and can house six people at a time. This means the kids had ample space to play while we enjoyed the ocean views from the balcony.

What’s more, you get complimentary WiFi, which is great if you’re looking to catch up on the latest shows.

The Resort Facilities

Once we’d settled in and unpacked, we decided to check out the amenities. After spending some time looking around, we were satisfied that our stay would be an experience to remember.

Here’s a brief look at some of the facilities which the resort provided us with.


Despite the vast reaches of the Pacific beckoning us, we spent a little time by the pool. But don’t think for a moment that this means we didn’t enjoy it at the beach.

The 25m heated lap pool is good, however, there is not much space for relaxation for those that don’t want to do laps. That being said, the time we spent in the pool was mainly lazing about with as the girls enjoyed the Children’s Splash Pool.

Gym & BBQ

ULTIQA boasts of a fully-functional gym with all the required equipment for a complete workout. It even has a BBQ center for scrumptious meals.

Though we didn’t make use of these facilities, still, they are sure to appeal to those looking for a healthy stay.


When on vacation, it’s a shame not to go on a shopping spree. Thankfully, ULTIQA’s bottom level has a great collection of shops. You’ll find everything from eateries to gift stores and more here.

Points for Improvement

Although we loved most of the things about the resort, such as the spacious apartment, sensational ocean views (from the 23rd floor), there were a few things that we didn’t like:

  • there was not enough toilet paper for a family of 5
  • the pool area was not inviting and super windy
  • pool towels were at extra cost ($5 per person, non-refundable)
  • no 24 front desk service

Here we feasted on pancakes, acai bowls, and avocado toast, all of which were delicious.


For dinner, we visited the following two locations on consecutive days:

Mario’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria

If you’re looking for an Italian dinner, then Mario’s is the place to go.

We loved the ambience that this restaurant provides and had a full meal consisting of pasta, pizza, and excellent great eye fillet steak.

Oh! And the roast chicken with mushroom sauce was just fantastic!

Hideaway Kitchen & Bar Broadbeach

On the other hand, if Asian is more suited to your tastes, then head over to the Hideaway Kitchen & Bar for amazing Asian food.

We had our plates full of crispy beef in delicious sesame seed sauce, Phad Thai that was just heavenly, and Wagyu Beef Dumplings, to name a few items. In short, this is one eatery you wouldn’t want to give a miss while at the ULTIQA.
