This was our second stay at Nirvana by the Sea - the last time was 6 years ago and things have certainly changed since then. We were initially given a 2 bed apartment on the 4th floor that was less than satisfactory - damp smell, furniture and carpet in desperate need of a good steam clean, just generally not pleasant. Our stay was for 10 nights and there was no way we were going to stay in that room for that length of time. The manager was fantastic in moving us the next day to a better apartment on the next floor up. This one was clean, better presented, and just had a nicer feel about it. We commented that our last stay was on the 14th floor looking directly across to the ocean - all these apartments have apparently been sold. I have to say that for the cost of the apartment we could probably have stayed somewhere else in the area in something similar for a lot less. Having said that, you can't fault the location being across the road from the beach, close to some restaurants and walking distance to the main street of Cooly. There was plenty of room in the apartment, a lovely balcony with table and chairs to watch the passing traffic, full laundry, well kitted out kitchen, comfortable bed, bathroom/ensuite with venetian blinds and frosted glass for privacy, hot shower with good pressure. There is a gym available on the ground floor but it's really only equipped to handle one person at a time as the weight station is a combined system. There is also a sauna/steam room. There is a pool available also but we spent our days at the beach. Secure free parking is available under the building. Overall we enjoyed our stay but feel that the cost was high for what we got - particularly for the first apartment we were given. Our expectations were based on our first experience here 6 years ago, and it wasn't the same.

We had the most wonderful experience with the team at Nirvana by the Sea in unexpected circumstances. We booked our first holiday away with our 18 month old and started our trip booking the gorgeous sub penthouse apartment in the hotel. The setting was immaculate and views were stunning! Unforeseen freak weather however hit the coast soon after we arrived (with 3 days non stop torrential rain!) and unexpectedly in the middle of our first night we discovered water flooding the kitchen via a light fixture (which turned out to be caused by a rooftop blocked drain which was caused by all the extreme rain - no fault of the hotels). We called the team straight away who dealt with the situation with complete sincere concern and attention for us and our baby, and despite it being the middle of the night in a fully booked building they managed to find an apartment to move us to, and made sure we had every comfort necessary. The whole rest of our stay may not have been in our intended apartment but was regardless a wonderful experience and the team were so conscientious to make sure we had everything we needed. And on top of that they even refunded our stay in full to apologise for the situation. Given the extreme weather was no ones fault they looked after us better than we could have expected and we would have no hesitation to recommend such a beautiful and well situated hotel to anyone visiting Coolangatta. Thank you to Barbara and all the team at Nirvana for a lovely stay and we’ll look forward to seeing you again!

Hi there N6772CFstephenw, Thank you so much for amazing review. We are so very grateful that you took the time to elaborate what has happened during your stay with us here at Nirvana. As you mentioned, the torrential rain during your holiday was terrible and created issues in the apartment that you were staying in. We were so pleased to be able to find you another apartment where we could accommodate you and your little family safely. Sadly, it wasn’t of the same apartment category that you had originally booked with us. Thank you for being absolutely amazing about this whole process. It wouldn’t have been the same outcome if you and your family hadn’t been so understanding and cooperative when dealing with the issues. We simply cannot wait to have you back here at Nirvana, but during much nicer weather and staying in one of our Sub Penthouse apartments so you actually get to experience this beautiful unit and the private rooftop Pool and Barbecue Area that this apartment comes with. Thank you for your lovely feedback about Barbara and our staff here at Nirvana. We all tried our best to make this holiday experience as good as possible for you, especially after the scenario with the rain. Thank you again for your amazing feedback and being so understanding of the situation. We are looking forward to having you and your lovely family back for a well-deserved, sunny holiday soon! Kind regards, Nirvana by the Sea.

We stayed 5 nights in the sub penthouse, it was jaw dropping beautiful. From the amazing views , decor , ammenities, to our private roof top pool with BBQ. Staff at reception were very friendly & happy. (Always a fantastic sign) Doug the manager was beyond helpful when we had to reschedule our first trip due to covid boarder closures. I booked originally through Bookings.com a big mistake as they didn’t reply to my cancellation emails or answer calls. , Doug spent time to call them & sort it all out, which he didn’t have to. Make sure you book through the hotel it’s self , you will also get a cheaper rate. Doug is real great guy & enjoys a laugh with everyone. Kirra beach across the road was beautiful, the sand was soft & fine. There are plenty of nice restaurants in walking distance. On a nice afternoon I recommend going to The rainbow bay life saving club & watch the sunset across the sea with a cold one in hand. We watched some dolphins diving around the surfers. It was amazing. We definitely will be back ... as soon as we can. Thank you Nirvana by the sea

We stayed in the sub-penthouse for 6 nights. Great apartment on 15th floor with spectacular ocean views from the living area and main bedroom. Spacious apartment which was really well appointed. Everything you need! This apartment comes with a private pool on the roof which was really lovely. The pool also had brilliant views of the beach and a bbq area which we used. The fact it was on the roof was surprising to us as based on the photos it appeared to be part of the apartment (but ultimately this didn’t make a difference except I was less inclined to let kids stay there solo). The apartments are in a good location with restaurant options within walking distance. We had absolutely appalling weather on this trip so unfortunately didn’t make the most of the pool or the beach (the beach was closed for swimming for the whole stay). The torrential weather was also a problem in terms of leaks in the apartment with a bad leak in the second bedroom which meant that beds had to be moved with kids having to sleep right next to each other (not ideal). Another bad leak in the living area. The conditions were terrible so I doubt that most people staying would have this issue. That being said it was disappointing considering the price point. I would definitely consider staying here again. It’s a great apartment complex in a great location. When considering booking make sure you consider the unit you book. Lower floors may have bad traffic noise as the noise was still significant at the top. Some units could also have rubbish views overlooking the carpark across the road so do your research. Suggestion to management - add a chromecast to the TV so people can stream. The room had heaps of DVDs which is a nice touch but outdated. Photo of views attached.

Hi there LuxuryTraveller32, Thank you very much for the most wonderful review of your recent holiday with us at Nirvana by the Sea. It makes us so happy to know that you enjoyed staying in one of our beautiful Two Bedroom Sub Penthouse units. The private rooftop Pool and Barbecue Area sure is the highlight of the unit, as well as the breathtaking views towards Kirra Beach and Coolangatta Beach. We are normally blessed with Queensland’s nice sunny weather throughout the year, however we do occasionally get rain here at Kirra Beach. Unfortunately, this aspect is out of our control. When making a booking with us, please talk to our staff about your view and level preference, so that we can ensure to book you in an apartment that suits your needs and preferences the best. Thank you for all additional feedback and suggestions. We will make sure to pass all this information on to our management here at Nirvana by the Sea. We hope to welcome you back at Nirvana soon for another holiday. Kind regards, Nirvana by the Sea.
