Paradiso Place is bringing an idyllic place of luxury to the heart of Surfers Paradise.
In the oldest definition of the word, paradise is a place of pure happiness and delight. Positioned in the heart of Surfers Paradise, just metres from the shore, Paradiso Place is designed to be exactly that – an idyllic place of luxury.
Designed by architects at Rothelowman and developed by SPG Land, Paradiso Place will be made up of three towers that will rise up to 38, 40 and 42 storeys respectively and include almost 800 new apartments.
The first tower to be released to market occupies a north-east position with apartments affording views to the main beach or back towards the heart of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.

The theme of paradise was a strong guiding principle for interior designer Robbyn Carter. In this, the LA-based founder of Studio Carter was inspired by the beauty of coastal southern Queensland.
“We introduced a number of key design themes that drive the look and feel of the project, inspired by the elemental nature of the location – the sun, sand, wind, surf – and a keen desire to create green spaces and weave in landscape throughout,” she explains.
“The emphasis on blending the boundary between indoor and outdoor by integrating greenery into the space with uninterrupted views looking out, you truly feel like you are in an urban oasis in the sky.

“The use of natural materials complemented by the sun-kissed hues of the ocean really gives it a unique sense of place and has come together beautifully.”
The centrepiece of Paradiso Place’s many amenities is the resort-style main swimming pool, with a poolside bar and an all-day restaurant.
The idea of the ‘digital nomad’ – someone who can work from anywhere at any time – was another source of inspiration for Carter and her team.
“This individual’s lifestyle is not restricted by time or place, we love the concept that people are living differently in a post-COVID world – working from home, setting down deep roots and enjoying their sense of place, we think this should be celebrated,” she says.
In addition to the luxuries within the apartments, residents in tower one will have access to an exclusive residents’ lap pool, and to a sky lounge that has co-working spaces as well as a coffee emporium, plus indoor and outdoor lounges.

A strong sense of family togetherness can be found in the second tower, where there is an indoor and outdoor kids’ zone, a sky lounge with a gym, and yoga and spa facilities. The most premium third tower has a podium-level café, breakfast and dining terraces, a library and meeting rooms, and a sky lounge featuring a suspended glass-bottomed lap pool on level 26, a whisky library and cigar lounge.
Although separate, the towers will be linked by ground-level cafes and stores, says Adrian Parsons, managing director of Total Property Group.
“It’s a mixed use precinct, where essentially you have a masterplan of three apartment towers that sit above some retail laneways that will provide a boutique retail experience and a variety of food and beverage outlets,” he explains.
“So the idea is creating a neighbourhood, where the whole precinct is a vibrant, self-sufficient centre.”

A wide range of buyers have seen the appeal at Paradiso Place. Locals looking for a slice of Surfers Paradise sun and sand have so far represented the bulk of them, but interstate buyers from Melbourne and Sydney have also put in a strong showing.
The average buyer either wants to live there permanently or save it as a holiday home to share with family. Careful planning has made for an easy lifestyle for both, says Parsons.
“If you’re visiting on holiday and you don’t want to venture off the property, then everything is there to satisfy your needs,” he says.
“You’ve got all the retail and everything underneath so you can pop downstairs and you can access your boutique shops and your coffee, ice-cream, restaurants and cafes.
“It’s a spectacular oceanside neighbourhood.”
