Element on Collum beach is an world class resort! A great & super friendly welcome by Lizzy and Susannah at reception who both showed me around and helped me to get all my luggage to the apartment. I have stayed in the 2 bedroom Pool View apartment. A super light and clean apartment with a spacious living area, a beautiful master bedroom & ensuite bathroom (with organic local Australian soap, shampoo, conditioner and bodylotion). The kitchen is phenomenal with everything what you need to cook your meals. For a professional athlete (like me) it just had all the luxury I need to come back after training and feel home. The availability of your own laundry is a bonus! The balconies are spacious with beautiful furniture. The resort is quiet and got good energy around the heated clean swimming pool. Just only 3 minutes walking distance and you are with your feet at the beach. There are beautiful coffee shops nearby including the French Bakery for your daily fresh croissants. I would say this resort got the best location in town. Every apartment got a lift service and the apartment/ resort is very disabled friendly. There is (enough) security parking under the resort. I can't wait to be back for another trainings camp/ race in the Sunshine Coast to feel so home as at Element on Coluum Beach.

We loved our stay - spacious 3 bedroom apartment with every convenience and luxury. Very comfortable beds, 2 living areas and large balcony which wasn’t overlooked. Added bonus was the generous and high quality toiletries. Location excellent - across the road from the beach and lots of restaurants and cafes on our doorstep. Thank you to the owners who went out of their way to ensure that we had food and drink for Xmas Day - much appreciated! We will be back.

Expected the complex to be a it better. The 2 bedroom apartment wasnt as prestigeous as expected. The sliding door to the main bedroom needs maintenance. It does not slide properly and makes a big noise. We have had to call for maintenance. The toilet paper supplied is thin. The appartment is clean and large.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Ivy Rose. The 2 Bedroom Sea View Apartment that you stayed in is one of our most requested apartments. We do have a range of accommodation options available to choose from - Standard Apartments, Pool View, Sea View, Deluxe Suites and our 4 Bedroom Penthouse with Lap Pool. Were there further issues with the sliding door that we were not made aware of during your stay as we had this fixed for you within one hour of receiving your maintenance request? We are glad that you found the apartment clean and large and we hope you will choose to stay with us again in future.

We were blown away with how amazing Element on Coolum is. Spacious and modern rooms that have everything you could want and need for any length of stay, huge balconies with great views, beautiful pool area (and the pool is heated so even though it was overcast when we arrived the boys still could swim). Everything you could need is in walking distance; beach, park for kids, cafes, Coles, Dan Murphy’s, local pub with great kids room. Suzannah was lovely to book directly though and very helpful with recommendations. We can’t wait to come back!

We recently stayed at the Penthouse in Elements of Coolum over a weekend! From the moment we checked in the service at reception was excellent, could not have been more accommodating, helping with anything we needed, nothing was to much trouble. This amazing suite has extremely large and modern bedrooms with all the luxury amenities you could imagine, also including a personal swimming pool in the centre of the apartment . Honestly, our family could not have been more relaxed, constantly having a view of the beautiful sandy beaches and magnificent sunsets in the afternoons . The location is perfect, within walking distance of plenty of restaurants, and shops, my kids absolutely love walking down stairs to get a cheeky ice-cream after dinner or getting us a coffee in the morning . Can not recommend Elements of Coolum more, it is perfect for any occasion from a nice family get away, to a romantic couples escape! ☀️We will be back Coolum ☀️
