Seahaven is a very unique class of resort. It has managed to seamlessly marry its gorgeous and thriving location as its biggest selling point. Whilst other resorts may struggle without their own restaurant for in-room dining or resort-style cocktails by the pool, Seahaven is able to promote local award-winning eateries and bars to encourage guests to be immersed within the wonders of culinary Noosa.

The beauty of Seahaven is that it offers freedom within a luxurious setting. Boasting an absolute beach front location beyond three glistening pools and palm laden gardens, it is a sanctuary from the front entrance of Hastings Street to the sands of Noosa Main Beach and the waters of Laguna Bay. The spacious and well-appointed deluxe apartments make settling in for a family holiday a breeze, and the inclusion of daily cleaning and amenities from Appelles are always a welcome feature.

Despite the lack of a porter to assist us with our luggage on arrival (which we would love to see incorporated in the near future to allow guests a seamless high-end service from check in to check out), we were impressed with the wonderful, central and vibrant location of Seahaven.

On entering our abode we were delighted with our sensational second floor, 2 bedroom (2 bathroom) Deluxe Apartment. Overlooking the end of the Main Beach boardwalk and beginning of the Noosa Botanic Gardens, we could glimpse the waves breaking through the stunning Banyan trees. Residing on the far corner of the resort, we had enough privacy to enjoy our fantastic large balcony but with enough interaction that we could view across the resort gardens to the sparkling pools below, and the Main Beach out towards the beginning of the Coastal Track.

With open plan design, the apartments are understated luxury and so well-appointed with quality features, from the kitchen to the bathroom. Full sized fridge, granite benches, oven and cook top, walk-in showers, deep bath tub and plush king-sized bed. Whether you are staying for two nights or ten, the deluxe two-bedroom apartments are spacious enough to allow for in-room relaxation without feeling confined. Floor to ceiling glass sliding doors out to the balcony also help with the feeling of space and lightness, as does the flow of the corridor from the front door to the kitchen.

Spark up the BBQ on the balcony and listen to the waves crash below, or dine at one of the many amazing restaurants along the foreshore or Hastings Street and enjoy a phenomenal Noosa sunset.

For families staying with little ones, Seahaven can organise the hire of necessities like cots and high chairs, which are conveniently set up and ready for use in your apartment. The resort also recommend babysitting service, Nannies of Noosa, which we used twice during our ten day stay and were very happy with the lovely nanny who looked after our son for an afternoon and an evening.

The choice of 3 separate pools (plus a spa and children’s wading pool) overlooking the Noosa Main Beach is truly amazing – just another example of Seahaven’s ample offerings to ensure your optimum relaxation. Jumping from the pool to the ocean is as simple as walking a few steps beyond the convenient glass gate exits, onto the soft sand and into the waves of Laguna Bay. Beach with the kids has never been so blissful when your apartment is just a few metres away…

It’s easy to see why Seahaven remains a true holiday favourite, with many loyal guests returning to enjoy the serenity that the resort offers. Families with children of all ages can enjoy the freedom of the large balconies or courtyard gardens, plus easy pool and beach access for an easy and fun, yet luxurious and thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Seahaven caters to those wanting a chilled escape with the ease and luxury of phenomenal food, beaches and adventures, literally at their doorstep.

It really was a blissful family getaway staying at Seahaven, and we look forward to returning very soon.
