SURFERS PARADISE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2013) - The saltwater lagoon at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa has been the exclusive private paradise of in-house guests -- until now. For the first time ever, this award-winning Gold Coast luxury hotel is offering visitors the chance to experience the aquatic playground with its 'Dive Into Marriott' deal.
The limited time 'lunch and lagoon' package allows visitors to experience the best this resort in Surfers Paradise has to offer, starting with the famous seafood buffet at Citrique. The light-filled restaurant, led by the talented sous chef Eric Henck, is divided into four zones. The Cold Zone offers fresh local seafood, sushi, salads, cheese and more; the Hot Zone highlights a selection of European and Asian dishes prepared at live cooking stations and made to order; the Grill Zone is where diners will find roasted meats and Indonesian-style satay; and the Decadence Zone fuses art and food with handcrafted desserts, homemade ice cream and more.
After a leisurely lunch at the Surfers Paradise restaurant, spend a sunny afternoon lounging amidst lush landscaping in the private lagoon. There, a cascading waterfall, waterside day beds and heated spas create an intimate setting in the sun perfect for couples celebrating a special occasion, friends getting together for a day of fun or singles who want a quiet escape from daily stresses. Those with kids or simply a curiosity with underwater life can explore a world below the surface; the lagoon is home to hundreds of tropical fish and ideal for snorkeling.
