Cool and laidback, Queensland is known for its very long stretches of coastal waters. No less than 7000 kilometers (4350 miles) of shores and beaches cover its northern and eastern coast. One of the reasons why travelers love this state is because of the Great Barrier Reef. Situated off the coast of Queensland, it is the largest coral habitat in the whole world. At its southeast end sits Gold Coast, a tourist favorite for beach lovers, surfers, and where huge theme parks are located. Lately, with tourists’ needs leaning more towards relaxation, some hotels have integrated plunge pools into their list of amenities. This type of pool allows guests to directly plunge into cool waters whenever they want to. If you are looking for this type of accommodation, pick one of the best hotels, resorts, and aparthotels with plunge pool in Queensland listed below.
