JW Marriott’s new activities program sets the bar for family staycays

Looking for the perfect family staycay on the Gold Coast? Look no further, because JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa has gotchu, fam.

A luxurious 223 room property in the heart of Surfers, JW Marriott boast panoramic views of hinterland and ocean, and is a short walk from our world-class beaches.

But what really makes it the family destination of choice is Family by JW, an absolutely jam-packed calendar of interactive activities that is sure to keep the young – and the young at heart – entertained all day long.

This exciting new program enables guests to get their culinary skills on; either in a sushi making class at Misono, a creative pizza making session or even with the pastry chefs in Citrique who will take you through the ins and outs of chocolate making (and yes, you get to eat what you make). There’s even a booze-free junior mixology class with healthy juices and mocktails on offer!

One of the main features at the JW Marriott has always been its spectacular Lagoon Pool, filled with over 300 colourful tropical fish. As well as swimming with the fish, guests can now attend a fish feeding session every morning of the week, and learn about the different types that call the Lagoon home.

And if you’d rather get up close and personal with the sea life, hire sea scooters and snorkel equipment all week long from the Recreation Centre and enjoy an adventure through the artificial reef in the JW Sweet Water Pool.

A complimentary JW Marriott Scavenger Hunt will supply curious minds with some fun facts throughout the self-guided activity, while JW Sports Course is open from 9am to 5pm, seven days per week, with equipment available to borrow from the Recreation Centre.

After something a little more indoors? The Games Room in the Activity Centre will definitely have something to surprise and delight, with a range of arcade-style games for the whole family to enjoy.

Starving after a day of fun in the sun, you’ll be happy to know that all three of JW Marriott’s restaurants have kid’s menus available, making family dining a breeze. And if you’d like that little bit of extra space after retiring to your rooms, there are interconnecting rooms so parents can have a little downtime. Of course, the onsite spa is always there for that, too.
