Under New Friendly and Helpful Management. Sanctuary Beach Resort is on absolute beachfront here at Currumbin Beach, Gold Coast, Australia. We have a variety of unique 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom fully self contained units with the complex having direct access to the beach with no roads to cross. Enjoy our beautiful pool, surrounding gardens and family BBQ areas, or take a hit of tennis on our court. We have delightful local cafes and boutiques located on Pacific Parade, which is a three minute walk along the beach. The Iconic Currumbin Vikings Surf Club is also located just three minutes up the beach with 180 degree views of the Pacific ocean. You can see clearly all the way from Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta on the top of the Elephant Rock lookout, and the famous Currumbin Alley is only a further 5 minutes walk along the beach, a surfing mecca. The complex has secure basement carparking and is across the road from the popular Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Please note we have stair access only!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent 7 nights at Sanctuary Beach Resort, this was our second visit and this time we had a 2 bedroom Beachfront Unit (2nd back from the beach). The resort is in a ideal location as there is no road to cross when you want to go on the beach. The apartments are older style but the unit (14) which we stayed in has had money spent on it and has a Modern Kitchen, Bathrooms and Flooring. You can walk to the Surf Life Saving Club and the Vikings Bistro was very good. The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is just across the road and there is a convenience store that seems to have everything you need. The Gardens and Pool at the resort are lovely and Peter the Manager is always around working hard, he makes you feel very welcome when you arrive and certainly does a great job. The only thing I would suggest to the owners of this Unit is the bed in the Master Bedroom could do with an upgrade. I would recommend people to stay here and we would certainly stay again.

Perfectly located in Currumbin within walking distance of Sanctuary, trendy coffee shops (@thesaltmill) Great proximity to theme parks, facilities, Pacific Fair etc. Beach on your door step.
Facilities are perfect for a family (Pool, BBQ, rooms, WIFI) staff are friendly & helpful and rooms (We stayed in 22) are very well appointed (Fans, air conditioning, cooking facilities, dishwasher, dryer etc)

Have just spent eight nights at our favourite place to stay on the Gold Coast. From the minute you arrive at Sanctuary Beach Resort you relax, the proximity to the ocean is fantastic as you don't even cross a road. The Gardens and pool area are lovely and always kept pristine. The unit we stayed in is top class and the owners had painted it and put in a new comfortable bed, they even positioned a mirror in the lounge area that allowed you to see the ocean from the kitchen, brilliant idea. We would not choose to stay anywhere else. The Currumbin Wild Life Sanctuary is just across the road and Vikings restaurant in the Currumbin Surf Life Saving Club is only a short walk away. Thank you once again to Nadine and Peter for ensuring a wonderful holiday for us. We will definitely be back.

Where do I start? This is a fabulous friendly family resort. We booked three units, Nos 14, 36 and 37 for a family holiday to celebrate my 70th birthday. Our unit No 14 had been nicely renovated with the most wonderfully comfortable bed in the main bedroom. Units 36 and 37 were also good sized family units that easily accommodated our two family groups. . There were a couple of handyman issues with unit 37 but Nadine and Peter were right onto it and quickly fixed them. Nadine and Peter were excellent from the day of our first enquiry with this lovely little holiday resort. Friendly, approachable and very helpful and nothing was too much trouble as evidenced by my many email enquires prior to our arrival. The resort is away from the madding crowd but still close to a little shopping Village and walking distance to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Friday night ethnic food markets. Despite the rainy weather we still managed to fit in all the theme parks and major attractions of the Gold Coast plus a beautiful trip into the hinterland, as well as an exciting NRL game at the nearby Cbus stadium. The resort has a safe little beach for swimming, board riding and walking, with no roads to cross to access. The kids had a great time between the pool and the beach and we knew we could safely let them do these activities in this friendly little corner of Currumbin. We are already talking about a return visit, hopefully with better weather!

A well-stocked apartment with a great layout. Loved the parent retreat though it often worked in reverse with the kids upstairs relaxing and the grownups downstairs around the dining table. We had the 3 bedroom and it was perfect for our four people family plus Nanna. Our 70+ year old Nanna did find the 3 flights of stairs a bit challenging by the end of the week, so take that into consideration.
So close to the beach, which was quiet with some good waves. It was maybe 100 metres from our apartment to the waters edge. No need to carry heaps of snacks and water bottles, shoes or even towels. Easy to pop back up the apartment whenever need be, dedicated beach shower, on the path, to keep the sand where it belongs.
The pool was just the right size for keeping cool and a play with the kids, it wasn't tricky to pick a time to have it to yourself.
Bathrooms had generously sized showers with fast hot water and decent pressure. Handy laundry with separate sink in the downstairs bathroom to dump sandy togs for a rinse, before hanging them on supplied airing track on one of the decks, or chucking your towels through the wash and dryer to freshen up.
Free internet access and smart TV meant we could keep up with new Bluey or watch a movie on Netflix.
The managers were very friendly and visible, though we didn't need any help, felt they were ready if we did.
Very close shops with an IGA close by and heaps of takeaway of different kinds. Plus the Currumbin Sanctuary and it's Friday Food Market within 5 minutes walk.
Just generally a lovely home away from home and we can't wait to stay again soon.

We booked 4 units for three daughters and their families with one unit for us. 9 grandkids made up the party!
Our unit 30 was first level with fabulous ocean and beach views. Unit 45 three bedroom was spectacular. The other units were also ok.
The manager Peter and office manager Nadine were extremely helpful and friendly. Peter works tirelessly to keep the grounds looking like paradise.
We spent heaps of time on the beach - just step out the front door and across the pathway! The pool was also a favourite place. Evenings were special with kids playing games, adults chatting over nibbles and drinks overlooking the ocean.
The BBQ area accommodated our entire group for an evening meal on New Year’s Day.
Easy walking distance to Tugun shops for supermarket, bakeries, newsagent, fish and chips etc and 200m to Currumbin lifesavers
Overall a great place to stay😊

We stayed for 8 nights in apartment 34, which is a 3 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms. Was perfect as my parents stayed with us upstairs and had their own private area. Whilst my husband and I stayed downstairs with our children.
This property is incredibly beautiful.
The grounds are immaculate and so to are the apartments.
The pool is not large however you don’t need a big pool, as the ocean is a 1
Minute walk away.
There are bbq’s around the pool that are also kept extremely clean… we ended up eating around the pool & bbq most nights.
I found this place more relaxing than others that we have stayed at.. less noisy and pure tranquility.
Thanks to Pete you were a legend!
We shall be back

We stayed this Christmas for one week, had two ground floor units, one beachfront and the other garden view. Will definitely be back. The units are well looked after and have everything you need for a home away from home. Location is amazing, the surf club is 5 mins away with great views and food. The on-site manager and owner manager were always on hand and super helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were in a beachfront unit and the view from our unit was fabulous. The unit had everything we needed and was clean and tidy on arrival. We especially loved that the kids could run out the front of the unit and over to the beach without crossing any roads - very handy. The resort is conveniently located close to the wildlife sanctuary, the surf club (good food!) and a few nice little cafes. Currumbin Alley is also a short walk away. We didn’t need to drive at all once we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

We just loved our stay! The apartment was modern, clean and very comfortable. We could literally walk out our building, cross the footpath and we were on the beach. Peter and Nadine were very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!
The location was also second to none! 👍. We walked to Tugan village and had DELICIOUS Thai at Sticky Rice and when we wanted something health we would go to the Foxes Pantry (AKA BP Petrol station!). It was fantastic!
