The perfect mini break for families at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort

For most overloaded parents, the perfect mini break for families is one where you don’t have to organise anything … right?! Just a few minutes walk from a patrolled beach in Mudjimba, Sunshine Coast, the gorgeous 4-star Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort offers the perfect blend of luxury and kid-friendly downtime without you having to plan a thing.


A mini break for families with V.I.Ks (Very Important Kids)

The V.I.Ks program at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort has something for all ages, making a favourite mini-break for families. With activities such as beach flags, fish feeding, beach cricket, treasure hunt, and tug-o-war. It’s great for families with kids of different ages and interests. One can play touch footy while the other is building sandcastles.

If you prefer water sports, there are plenty of activities on the stunning lagoon. There are mini-catamaran and kayaks for guests to use. They have a double kayak so the teeny ones can jump in with an adult. Or if you prefer two wheels, you can hire bikes from the activity centre to explore the local area.
There is also a pool table, two ping-pong tables, and a kids’ games room—a great spot for the bambinos to play arcade games whilst Mum or Dad enjoy a bit of R&R.


Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort lagoon-style pool and spa pool

The newly refurbished lagoon-style pool is perfectly designed for families. There are plenty of super-comfy loungers in the pool area to park yourselves and loads of floating bean bags and noodles to keep kids entertained. The pool features a large shallow stepped area perfect for little ones and plenty of deeper water for the older ones to race around. There is a kiosk within the pool area for drinks and ice creams, and the SOLA Bar & Restaurant is there for bigger feeds. And there is no need to pack the beach towels; the kiosk has a massive pile for guests to use.


Dining at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort

The buffet breakfast will fuel you for a day of exploration with an impressive spread featuring fluffy pancakes, hot breakfast staples, fresh fruits, cereals, and pastries.

All other dining at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort is managed through the SOLA Bar & Restaurant, making it simple to navigate without debating where to eat!

The kids are well catered for, with a dedicated menu offering classic favourites like chicken nuggets, cheesy pizzas, yummy pasta, and kid-sized fish dishes.


Refurbished rooms at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort

The hotel boasts a recent refurbishment, offering the modern comforts you deserve. Sink into a super-comfy bed after a day of sunshine and adventure, catch up on your favourite shows on the large smart TV with Foxtel, and pamper yourself in the spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower.
