Six stunning rooftop cabins just opened on Australia’s Gold Coast

“The cabins are low-key coastal cool, designed for the modern traveler, exclusive group stays or an innovative event option.”


QT Hotels & Resorts, a hotel operator serving Australia and New Zealand, has unveiled qtQT, an urban green oasis located on the roof of QT Gold Coast.

An immersive concept curated for modern travellers, group getaways or innovative events, qtQT is comprised of six standalone cabins, each of which accommodates up to two guests and features a private balcony with views of the horizon.

“When designing the overall QT Gold Coast upgrade, we identified a previously unused lower-level rooftop,” says Jane Hastings, CEO of EVT, the parent company of QT Hotels & Resorts. “We had been exploring the world of tiny accommodation and standing there as the sun set, we knew this would be the perfect location to trial our interpretation of this experience, the QT way. The cabins are low-key coastal cool, designed for the modern traveler, exclusive group stays or an innovative event option.”
 
 

Natural charm

Designed in consultation with EVT’s longstanding collaborator and award-winning designer, Nic Graham, each cabin at qtQT has its own serene character.
 
The spaces are filled with natural textures, earth tones and linens and amenities from such local favorites as I Love Linen, Saya Skincare and Harvest Clay ceramics.
 
The qtQT Cabins also come equipped with QT Tablets (for in-room dining and other hotel information), Dyson Supersonic hair dryers, Dyson Corrale straighteners (available on request), board games and homemade sweet treats courtesy of QT chefs.
 
 
“This is a place for our guests to simply be – whether it’s an unplugged solo escape or couple’s getaway with guests still accessing all of the designer comforts and culinary creations of QT Gold Coast,” says Callum Kennedy, group general manager of QT Hotels & Resorts.
 

Group getaways 

The cabins at qtQT give guests the choice to either unplug completely with a solo, TV-free stay, or book all six cabins exclusively for a rooftop group hang.
 
Guests can make their stay at qtQT even more unique with Curated Experiences, bespoke activities arranged by their Curator of Sunshine (qtQT’s dedicated concierge), in collaboration with the best local Gold Coast partners.
 
For group retreats, qtQT can set up a whole suite of culinary experiences on The Terrace, while The Landing provides a photo-friendly lawn setup for picnics, wedding parties and other group activities, as well as the perfect spot for sunrise yoga with a view.
 
Rates at qtQT start from AU$359 (approx. US$242) per cabin, per night, with bookings open now for stays starting from December 1, 2022.
