This modern and luxurious self-contained apartment hotel has spectacular ocean views and is located right on the vibrant Surfers Paradise Boulevard. Rhapsody’s self-contained apartments are ideal option for couples, families and small and large groups travelling together and is right on the beach. Each elegant, state-of-the-art self-contained apartment delivers an uncompromising sense of space, freedom and a sleek, modern design.

The property offers large, very well-appointed and modern studio, one and two-bedroom apartments all with magnificent ocean or hinterland views. The furnishings are clean, comfortable and very functional. Each apartment has a fully appointed kitchen which is very useful when traveling with a family or working from the room.


It is envisaged the resort will have its own restaurant by December 2017 but in the meantime, there is a very large selection of dining options nearby in Surfers Paradise and a short tram ride away to Broadbeach, Main Beach or Surfers Paradise. In room delivery via Deliveroo or Dominos is a lower cost alternative to traditional room service with a wide range of culinary options on offer. The kitchen in each room is well enough equipped to handle any level of cooking.

Business Facilities & Meetings

Level 27 has several conference and meeting rooms which can host groups up to 50 people. All meeting spaces indoors and outdoors have spectacular ocean views.
