How To Spend Valentine’s Day On The Marina
All the sips, seafood, boutique shopping and sweeping marina views you need for an indulgent Valentine’s Day in 2020.
One stroll along the boardwalk that surrounds the marina, and you’ll understand why it’s one of the most romantic locations on the Gold Coast. Not to mention the world-class restaurants! Just picture clinking a glass of bubbles, with waterfront views nonetheless, and tucking into the freshest seafood and modern Australian cuisine on the coast, all after a day of boutique shopping and spa experiences. Plus, with a few handy last-minute presents to top off the day, Marina Mirage really does have Valentine’s Day 2020 all wrapped up.
Enjoy the sunrise
If like many of us you have to head to work on Valentine’s Day (sigh), but still want to share the love with your significant other, make sure you start the day on a happy note. The weekend before V Day, pay a visit to the friendly staff at IM Lingerie and pick up a silky set of pajamas or pair of funky briefs to gift each other in the morning. That way your 2IC can wake up each day in comfort, feeling just a little bit spesh. Afterward, there’s no better way to start the day than with a walk along the marina and a coffee and croissant from La Provence. And to top off your perfect morning, say ‘hi’ to the team at Main Beach Florist and pick out some seasonal blooms to have your home smelling beautifully fresh and fragrant all week long.
Indulge in a soothing treatment
Summer is the season of balmy days on the beach, but those rays can also wreak havoc on our skin. So, there really is no better gift than an indulgent, soothing and rejuvenating treatment from Esteem Medi Spa to leave your loved ones feeling their absolute best. Book in for a day of R&R together in the state-of-the-art luxurious day spa setting or pick up one of their convenient gift cards to continue sharing the love long after the day is over. Oh, and they’ve won Best Aesthetic Practice four years in a row, so you know you’ll be in good hands.
Sips, seafood and gold star service
If you’re anything like us, you’ll have set intentions to make the most of every day in 2020 and Valentine’s Day should be no exception. Reserve a waterfront table on the marina at one of the world-class restaurants and enjoy a delicious spread of fresh, seasonal ingredients, decadent desserts, and wine lists as impressive as some of the superyachts docked in the marina. Our top dishes and sips? If you’re in search of a melt-in-your-mouth cheese platter, with a side of freshly shucked oysters and Moreton Bay bugs then Omeros Bros Seafood will be your pick. Or, perhaps an afternoon of sparkling Moët bubbles or refreshing Rosé coupled with smokey grilled octopus and chorizo would float your boat? Glass Dining & Lounge Bar has you covered. Finally, for all of the Italian cuisine lovers out there (we see you), Ristorante Fellini has won more than 100 industry accolades and with their homemade pasta, simple yet high-quality ingredients and gold star service, Fellini is waiting for you to enjoy their sweeping Broadwater views.
Take in all the spoils of the Gold Coast lifestyle this Valentine’s Day at Marina Mirage. Don’t worry, you can thank us later!
