Sea World Resort & Water Park named Holidays With Kids’ ‘Best Family Resort’

Sea World Resort & Water Park named Holidays With Kids’ ‘Best Family Resort’
July 2, 2011

Sea World Resort & Water Park can proudly boast the title of number one family resort on the Gold Coast after taking out the gong for 'Best Family Resort' in the 4.5 star category in the Holidays With Kids Magazine 2011 Awards.

The Awards generated close to 500,000 votes from reader surveys as well as an online survey, with the assistance of travel partners Club Med, Ubid 4 Rooms and Take a Break.
Sea World Resort General Manager Ernst Pfister said that Sea World Resort won the award as a result of their amazing family water attractions including the Water Park and Water Play Aqua Playground, as well as their newly renovated Kids' Club.

Pfister explained "our close affiliation with Sea World, world class accommodation and complimentary guest access to the Water Park, are all truly unique elements that make Sea World Resort the ideal Gold Coast family holiday destination.

"Sea World Resort is always striving to create an exceptional family experience unparalleled by any other resort and later this year will open a new expansion which will take the Resort to a whole new level."

Sea World Resort is the only hotel in Australia where guests will receive an exclusive Dolphin presentation, free when they stay two nights or more.

The Dolphin Discovery presentation is set in the spectacular Dolphin Cove theatre and will provide guests with an insight into the amazing world of the Dolphin while they witness a sneak peek of a Dolphin training session, all before the park opens.

Dolphin Discovery is a unique and magical presentation the whole family will enjoy, and exclusive to Sea World Resort.

Sea World Resort offers 4.5 star facilities, a stunning location, choice of 405 rooms with garden, pool or Broadwater views, plus daily Sesame Street character appearances for the children.

Sea World Resort also offers a variety of dining options to choose from with four restaurants and two bar areas including a modern seafood buffet, award winning Japanese cuisine and poolside dining.
