My boyfriend and I booked a last minute pre-xmas stay at Noosa Blue Resort, staying in one of their premium penthouse rooms. We decided to take a bit of a gamble after reading some of the other reviews, and we were glad we did! We got an amazing room rate ($210/night) which was a bargain.
We checked in late, about 8pm on Sunday, and were met by someone from reception who gave us our keys and directions to the carpark and room.
We were on the fourth (highest) floor and the penthouse consists of a bedroom and living area with a kitchenette, bathroom, balcony with a day bed and upstairs a private barbeque spa area.
We really enjoyed our stay and couldn't fault the accommodation. Everything was spotless, including the two private spas we had access to. The penthouses are really well designed to get lovely sea breezes and we didn't need to use the air conditioning once as it was really cool. I liked how the balcony had shutters you could open or close to control how much breeze you got / close for privacy etc.
While this is a personal thing, I ABSOLUTELY loved the mattress. It was firm yet soft at the same time. Probably the best night's sleep I have ever had. Also a choice of pillows - 2 per person, one high and one low each.
The highlight is definitely the private rooftop spa area, with amazing views over the Sunshine coast hinterland including the Noosa river. From the other direction we could see the ocean. We didn't use the bbq, but saw it was clean. We made use of the large 4 person spa to watch the sunset - it was great.
It's about a 7 minute walk down to Hastings Street (a bit longer going back up the hill!). Really good location. We didn't eat at the cafe at Noosa Blue, but had coffee and cocktails and cheesecake there (all very tasty).
We didn't want to leave and we will definitely be back - thanks for the awesome stay :)
