Now open: our first ever lounge on the Gold Coast

Lounge reception

Last week we opened the doors to our brand new lounge on the Gold Coast. This is the first Virgin Australia lounge on the Gold Coast and is another way we can enhance the travel experience to this important destination for both business and leisure guests.

Our in-house Product team worked closely with renowned architect Tim Greer from Tonkin Zulaikha Greer to design the two-storey 680m2 space, which seats around 140 guests. Inspired by our flagship Queensland lounge in Brisbane, it features organic wood elements in the reception area and has an open-plan format to create a deliberate flow from space to space, enhanced by the ‘leaf’ theme in the ceiling pattern.

It offers all the facilities we know are important to our guests including:

- All-day barista service & Luke Mangan designed buffet, which includes options for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a range of all-day snacks.

-Desktop workstations with printing facilities.

- A dedicated meeting-room.

- Entertainment options including free-to-air FOXTEL programming and a  range of premium magazine and newspaper titles.

The lounge is open seven days a week from 45 minutes prior to the first Virgin Australia departure until the last Virgin Australia flight is called for boarding and is located at the Southern end of the terminal, adjacent to gates 1 and 2.

It is available to guests travelling with Virgin Australia (and codeshare partners) who are lounge members, lifetime lounge members, and Silver Velocity members with entry passes on their membership, Gold, Platinum Velocity Members and Business Class fare holders.

    It looks great. Just wondering when we can expect a lounge in Cairns. Qantas the other day announced reduction in Cairns – Sydney flights that the business market would use. Would this not be a good time to take adavantage of the Qantas pull back with a lounge. I am a gold member and I know of alot of fellow business owners who are not happy with Qantas. The only thing that keeps them at Qantas is the Qantas club and if Virgin had a lounge that would make a big difference
