This is a great modern hotel tucked just around the corner from Coolangatta in Kirra. Good restaurants just downstairs or 10 mins walk away in Coolangatta. Across the road from the beach. Attentive, friendly management & staff.

Thank you Kim for your review. Yes we have tried to stay tucked away here in Kirra but Im afraid the secret is out. We hope to see you again on your return visit.

We have stayed in plenty of apartment style accommodation, both through our business and holidays. When our normal place in Byron Bay was unavailable, we were left to find a new place and decided to find a new location as well. Kirra is awesome!! So close to the airport, great beach and foreshore, great eateries and not too busy and...

If you want to relax in beautiful scenery, with minimal tourists and casual luxury this is it . we stayed in the sub penthouse with its own private pool. Initially we thought the pool being one level above our room was not the best idea , however it is a brilliant concept being two totally separate spaces so everyone enjoyed...

This is the third year in a row we have stayed for the week following Easter and this year was by far our best! Previously we booked 2 bedroom apartments which have been fabulous but my advice is book one of the 3 bedroom Skyhomes. Stunning in every way from the moment you step inside the front door. Total luxury...

this was our second time staying at nirvana and sorry to say the place seemed a bit shabby this time round. We stayed in the sub penthouse and were very much looking forward to our stay.

This apartment is just like the picture. We got an apartment facing the ocean with nice view. Close to theme parks and wildlife park I have no hesitation to recommend to family that want relaxing holiday.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom sky home on the 11th floor. The apartment was stunning. Very large living area. The pictures on the website are true to the actual apartment. The view from the two balconies meant we could see down the beach both north and south. Had a great week.

Thank you for your wonderful review. The 3 bedroom skyhomes are amazing. Plenty of space and beautiful views over Kirra Beach, Coolangatta then north to Surfers Paradise. Its great you were able to take advantage of the facilities and the surrounding area. We hope you have the opportunity to return to Nirvana on your return to Kirra.

I thought for the price this should have been a better standard, Many rooms do not face directly towards the ocean but are side on. The rooms showed signs of wear and tear to carpets, curtains, the kitchen above the stove wall was covered in smoke on glass. Mirrors in bedroom were filthy (especially evident at night).

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We're sorry Nirvana didn't live up to your expectations.
