While they say love doesn't cost a thing, there's nothing quite like a sweet vacay with your significant other. And imagine all the brownie points you’ll score when you whisk your other half away to one of the Sunshine Coast's most romantic destinations?

From cosy mountain cabins to luxurious beachfront villas to ultra-luxe glamping, it's time you got all swept up in each other’s irresistibleness at one of our top picks for best romantic getaways on the Sunshine Coast.

Tingirana Noosa 

Noosa Heads

Two words: beachfront luxury. The epitome of Noosa living, these stunning apartments are wedged conveniently between the Noosa Main Beach and Hastings Street. Soak in the sunrise over the ocean from your private deck, splash in the pool and laze on sunbeds, before hitting some of the best restaurants in Noosa, all within walking distance. If you’re looking for the best accommodation in Noosa, where everything is thought of, Tingirana Noosa is a must book. 

Noosa Avalon Farm Cottages

Noosa Hinterland

Romance isn’t always about spending the most money and staying at the swankiest hotel. Sometimes, it’s about getting away from the bustle, immersing yourself in each other and nature, and spending a night or two in a rustic cottage filled with character…and lucky for you, Noosa Avalon Farm Cottages offers just that. Tucked away at the entrance to Kin Kin Valley, this hideaway is nestled on 30 acres of regenerated forest, with stunning mountain views and visiting kangaroos. Whilst they have a range of accommodation options available, we’d suggest booking the Bottlebrush Cottage for extra privacy or the Hideaway Cottage for an added dose of romance. 

Pitch Luxury Camping

Various Locations

Embrace the great outdoors without compromising on style or romance, thanks to Pitch Luxury Camping. Setting up your dream glamping holiday at just about any campsite or private property on the Sunshine Coast, you can sit around a fire, gazing at the Milky Way, before throwing in the towel and retreating to your luxurious five-metre bell tent, complete with all the creature comforts. With optional extras like firewood, private toilets and showers, separate pop-up kitchen and dining tents and, if you want to go all out, even a private chef or butler service, this is the perfect way to enjoy a completely tailored getaway. They don’t come better than this when hunting for the best romantic getaways on the Sunshine Coast, so you can stop the search. 

The Love Shack


A romantic stays list doesn’t really exist without featuring a place aptly named The Love Shack, does it? Lucky for us, this list is now totally legit thanks to a little cabin in Diddillibah. Handmade with love, naturally, this sub-tropical one-bedroom retreat is somewhere we’d totally like to recharge and unwind.

Spicers Tamarind & Clovelly

Maleny & Montville

No one does romance quite like Spicers does. Spicers Tamarind Retreat in Maleny is where eastern tranqulity meets western luxe; lush rainforest and nearby waterfalls remind you of an faraway escape, and the smells and spices of the Thai-influenced cuisine complete the picture of tranquillity. European elegance is key at Montville's Spicers Clovelly, and if you’ve got your arm draped over a Francophile then this is a place worth whisking them away to. If you like spaciousness and want to play house for a few days (there’s three bedrooms in here) then don’t go past the French Cottage. Trust us, it won’t take long (we give you an hour) before you’re on the veranda snapping those ‘wish you were here’ holiday snaps. Another must, is dining on a tasting menu at the estate’s two-hatted restaurant, The Long Apron. Très magnifique.

Glass On Glasshouse

Glass House Mountains

Blow your date away with a stay at this luxury B&B, where you’ll take in stunning vistas of the Glass House Mountains through sleek floor-to-ceiling glass walls of your cottage. Romance is in the mind of the beholder, but with a freestanding double spa bath, fire (for those chilly winter nights) and a sky full of stars beyond your deck, we’re pretty sure Glass On Glasshouse has got the wow-factor covered for even the toughest nut.

The Bower


“How’s the serenity?” will be the line of this romantic getaway on the Sunshine Coast. Hidden in lush forest near Maleny, The Bower is the ultimate couple’s retreat. Cosy and decked out with a wood-burning fireplace, quality linen and an antique clawfoot bath, a weekender here would be made even better by chilly weather—so look to stay in winter. With a light breakfast included in the tariff, all you need is you, your better half, a good book and a couple of bottles of vino. Now, how’s the serenity?

Deluxe Treetops Cottage 

Weyba Downs

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who’s never heard of Weyba Downs. But after a stay at Eumarella Shores, you’ll know exactly where it is on a map. Tucked on the shores of Lake Weyba, behind Peregian Beach, Treetops is a deluxe cottage styled in a French Provincial theme. You’ll get a snuggly bathrobe and slippers, perfect to take you from the free-standing bath to the log fire to lounging on the deck overlooking the water.

Narrows Escape


If a friend has come back from Montville raving about a cottage getaway they experienced, chances are they’re talking about Narrows Escape. Why? Because everyone who stays there, only says great things. Narrows Escape was officially named as Tripadvisor's 'Most Romantic Hotel In The World'  in 2021 and this cosy, hidden rainforest retreat that’s nestled in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is nothing if not romantic. Curl up in the hammock and read a book, tramp through the rainforest, or feast on all the goods crammed into the specially-made gourmet hampers. Relaxation and romance will hit an all-time high here, so don’t come with a to-do list.

Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort

Noosa Heads

If your idea of a romantic getaway on the Sunshine Coast equals not having to leave the premises during your stay, then you can’t go past Sofitel Noosa. Sitting on Hastings Street, this luxury resort comes with all the trimmings—think superior suites, river views, impressive restaurants and bars, a well-renowned day spa, and our favourite, a collection of French-inspired poolside cabanas that are available to book with your very own butler. Trust us, you won’t lift a finger the whole time you’re here.
