The Sebel Margate Beach | Brisbane, AUSTRALIA

I love a good getaway; doesn’t matter if it’s far away at the other end of the world, or somewhere close to home. To me, there’s something about it that’s both exhilarating and relaxing all at once. Exhilarating because of the unknown, the unfamiliar environment, the change of scene, the adventure that awaits; relaxing because you can leave all that stress behind, let your hair down and say goodbye to your daily hustle.  I love taking a drive out to Redcliffe. For somewhere that’s only less than an hour drive away from Brisbane CBD, Redcliffe feels like a different place altogether. Every time when the car gets onto the Ted Smout Memorial Bridge, my body instantly relaxes. On a sunny day, the blue water glistens as the car moves along on the road and the outline of the area can be seen in the distance like a mirage. 

It’s no wonder that The Sebel has decided to open its doors in the beautiful place that is Margate Beach. Located on 1 McCulloch Avenue, the beachfront hotel overlooks Moreton Bay and is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The rooftop is one of the brilliant highlights of the property. In addition to a spacious seating area which provides a panoramic view of the ocean, there’s also a swimming pool and bar where you can swim, relax and sun-bake.  The hotel features 58 elegantly designed and decorated rooms, with many offering oceanfront views and spacious balconies.  Each room also features a different black and white print that pays ode to the local’s way of life back in the days, which I think is a wonderful touch. Downstairs on the ground level, you find also find the Margate Beach House, which provides guests with a modern Australian culinary experience with a local touch, I’m talking about fresh locally sourced seafood cooked in ways that would capture your stomach and heart. 

I absolutely cannot wait for the summer to arrive so I can take the family there for a relaxing weekend getaway. The Sebel Margate Beach, see you soon!
