When you're spending a night or several away from home, it's often the small things that matter. On a beach getaway, being able to wander directly from your hotel to the sand — without crossing roads and walking down the block — is one such tiny luxury. And, it's exactly what'll be on offer at The Langham Gold Coast, with the new five-star spot opening its doors to holidaymakers in mid-June.

Joining the brand's existing Australian hotels in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as a worldwide portfolio that dates back to 1865 in London, The Langham Gold Coast will boast direct beachfront access — a rarity for new towering places to stay in the tourist spot. It's also the chain's first beachfront property, and it's pairing that oh-so-close proximity to sun, surf and sand with everything from a pool bar and cocktails upon arrival to 17 different types of rooms and suites to slumber in.

Obviously, gorgeous ocean views are a big feature — although, if you find yourself in a room on the other side of the building, you'll be peering out over the Gold Coast hinterland instead. There'll be 339 rooms and suites in total, all decked out in coastal hues, and with a huge emphasis on luxury.

When it launches on Thursday, June 23 — with bookings open from Monday, May 16 — The Langham Gold Coast will also include a range of food and beverage venues in addition to the aforementioned pool bar. So, when you're not enjoying afternoon tea at Palm Court, which goes big on pastries and pool views, you'll be hitting up all-day dining spot Akoya, a casual eatery serving meat, fish and poultry over cocktails (and seaside vistas). Or, there's the lobby bar, for more tipples; Coral Moon, another openair bar; and 26 & Sunny, which'll sit on the beach and offer sandwiches, coffee and deli options.

Come spring, T'ang Court will also start serving up Cantonese dishes, giving the hotel a sister venue to the brand's Michelin-starred restaurants overseas.

Between zipping into the waves and knocking back beverages, guests can also hit up Chuan Spa, The Langham's wellness centre. There, traditional Chinese medicine will guide the treatment selection — and leaving you feeling blissed out is the number-one aim.

A health club with a gym, plus yoga, pilates and meditation sessions will be onsite as well, and — as the pool bar makes plain — places to swim besides the ocean. There'll be two pools, in fact, one indoors and the other outdoors. You'll need to be outside for those lagoon-style swim-up drinks, though.

Artwork by Australian sculptor and artist Camie Lyons will feature around the hotel, and the chain's Ginger Flower fragrance will help set the mood.

And if you're wondering where to head, The Langham Gold Coast will make its home inside the Jewel towers between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.

Find The Langham Gold Coast at 38 Old Burleigh Road, Surfers Paradise, from Thursday, June 23. For more information or to make a booking, head to the hotel's website.
