Nirvana is truly a fabulous find! We are finding resorts are becoming rather overcrowded so the quiet and private accommodation suits us best with 3 kids. We stayed in the two bedroom sub penthouse with private pool for 8 nights - absolutely fantastic. The entire building is spotless, extremely well maintained and loved. The executive lounge with pool table, library,...

Loved our stay at this amazing resort! Would go back tomorrow - excellent amenities and view. Not one complaint - kids loved the private cinema! Room was decorated beautifully and well equipped for all our needs.

As a special birthday trip we booked one of the penthouse rooms with private roof top pool and entertaining area. Private cinema room and magnificent views. We loved everything especially so close to airport so no hire car. Highly recommend for a memorable stay.

Nirvana by the Sea was great accommodation. The location was good although be aware that you have to walk about 10-15 mins to get into the centre of Coolangatta where most of the restaurants/shops are. We found that the few restaurants/cafes close to the accommodation were not open at night except on the weekends. The front desk staff were great...

We booked 5 nights here in one of the pool rooms. Unfortunately when we arrived the room we had booked for unavailable due to issues with the owner. So we had to have a standard room for the first night. (These rooms are really spacious and nice) On the second day we were able to move to one of the...

It worked out for the best being upgraded to the Sub Penthouse, so glad you enjoyed your stay and we are slowly upgrading the blinds in the bedrooms to be more suitable for blocking light. Kind regards Nirvana By The Sea

Loved Nirvana - the apartments, the pool, the theatrette. Right across the road from beautiful Kirra beach and a playground - just perfect for the kids. Plenty of good places to eat, without being too busy like nearby Cooloongatta. Though Cooloongatta is a pleasant beach walk if you need more options. Everything we look for in a beach holiday.

We stayed here 3 years ago. This time we stayed 5 nights in a high level 3BR apartment. Modern appliances. Very clean. Great views of Kirra Beach. Quiet neighbourhood. Minus point: Nirvana wanted us to pay for additional shampoo even though the bottles were obviously too small to last the entire stay.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are self contained apartments so the amenities within the rooms are the initial complimentary and guests generally bring their own. But next time we are happy to give them to you.. Kind regards Nirvana By The Sea

We had a two bedroom apartment with three travellers. One in a wheelchair most of the time and this hotel made it easy. Friendly staff, beautiful views, shops across the road and below. North facing rooms will have the most sun during the day but I believe these are all or mostly three bedroom apartments. Pool was in the shade...

This is our 2nd stay at Nirvana in a 2brm apartment. It was just as we remembered. Great amenities, awesome view, great location, friendly and helpful staff, lovely pool/spa/BBQ area. Across the road from the beautiful Kirra Beach and plenty of choice of cafes for a meal or just a coffee. Will definitely return.
