The Festive Season Is Here And It’s Time To Shop, Dine and Play at Sanctuary Cove’s Marine Village

Just a short drive north from the Gold Coast, or less than an hour from Brisbane, is Sanctuary Cove Marine Village- a premium shopping, dining and leisure precinct with endless options to spend your festive season how you like it.

Retailers like Costa Moda, Eev Fashion, Sanctuary Resort Shoppe, Harry’s Emporium, Soho Girl and jewellery and accessories from Cassardi Shoe Studio, Amore Fine Jewellery and Sanctuary Antiques will have you dressed to impress, quite literally from head to toe! If you’re looking for your next Summer swimwear set, head to Calypso Resort & Swimwear, or if you’re playing a round of golf, a new outfit from Sports & Leisure Cove should do the trick. Men are also spoilt for choice with a huge range to choose from at Latitude Men Collection, specialising in European resort wear.

Discover unique homewares and artisanal gifts in The Marine Village, particularly for lovers of beachside, coastal luxury. Stores like Hamptons Style, Theo & Joe and Cabana Store stock a combination of handmade ceramics, globally sourced décor and bespoke pieces for Summer entertaining and Christmas gift giving. If you’re looking for that statement piece large-scale art is on trend according to Judith from Dalozzo Art, particularly dynamic pieces that act as backdrop to a bed or lounge. Find this and more at Sanctuary Cove, with Dalozzo Art offering a huge selection of originals and prints to suit any size or budget.

With Christmas just around the corner – it’s time to spoil the nautical enthusiast in your life with a special something from Decorum gifts, stocked with a range of large replica model planes, yachts and boats, as well as A-grade model cars, world globes and statues. Decorum Gifts really is the ultimate home for “big boy toys” that you won’t find anywhere else.



Calling all foodies- Sanctuary Cove offers a plenitude of dining choices this Summer with incredible marina views to match. From modern Australian fine dining at Artichoke Restaurant & Bar, heart warming Italian at Ioesco, authentic Chinese and Yum Cha at Dragon Cove, seasonal, contemporary Australian menu at Jonez on Food, a seafood lover’s delight at George’s Paragon or a wood-fired menu at The Fireplace at the InterContinental Resort.

For a more relaxed casual affair enjoy family friendly dining at Cove Tavern, authentic pizzas and drinks at George’s Pizza Café and Bar, or a quick bite at Sushi Break.

Sanctuary Cove is also home to Bistro 19, with a delicious all day breakfast menu, for the health conscious, Pier B Cafe has plenty of options and for a good old serve of fresh fish and chips, you can’t go past Anchor Buoy.

Keep an eye out for new restaurants opening at Sanctuary Cove, starting with the authentic Turkish flavours of Nar Ottoman opening in the new year!



What sets Sanctuary Cove apart from anywhere else on the Gold Coast is the entertainment and leisure options available to choose from. As soon as you step foot at Sanctuary Cove, surrounded by luxury boats and superyachts, it’s clear that The Marina is a world-class boating destination. If you don’t have your own vessel, there’s still a number of boating activities you can participate in chartering a boat, hiring an electronic picnic boat or taking a luxury yacht out on the water!

Visitors may also spend the day playing a game of golf at The Palms Golf Course, nestled within century old Cabbage Palms. If golf isn’t quite your idea of play, book in for an evening of magic and mind-blowing entertainment at the Illusion Magic Show!

Australian Entertainer of the Year, Matt Hollywood performs a Las Vegas style magic show that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Stay a little longer and book a few nights at the newly refurbished five star InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.  The stylish redesign of its spacious guest rooms and suites takes inspiration from the resort’s 1-acre Lagoon Beach Pool and the 4.2-hectares of tropical gardens surrounding the property.
