Nothing says endless summer vibes quite like sprawling coastal views, a crisp ocean breeze and palm trees a plenty, Townsville certainly provides the perfect spot for a staycation. In a bid to escape Winter, the boyfriend (a Townsville native) and I checked into paradise and perhaps the most instagrammable resort in North Queensland, The Ville.
From sunset soirees overlooking the Coral Sea, to exotic island adventures, I present a fabulous little guide to turn on Townsville’s best staycations at The Ville.
Destination: Heaven on the 16th floor of The Ville
For those that like to start their morning with a decadent spread of breakfast delicacies, The Ville’s room service menu does not disappoint. My blissful weekend started with a three stack serve of buttery pancakes, complimented by Chantilly cream and garnished with fresh fruit. A side of Coconut Granola remained a favourite from the breakfast menu, which was demolished almost instantly.
A bougie staycation calls for a wardrobe to match, so I’m making a statement with my personalised sleepwear from Homebodii. Inherently feminine from their intricate laced robes to romantic cami ensembles, Homebodii curates sleepwear destined for more than sweet dreams. They’ve basically changed my loungewear aesthetic, because if it’s not satin stamped with my initials, then I just won’t have it any other way!
With an infinity pool boasting panoramic views of Magnetic Island and beyond and a swim-up Splash Bar equipped with summer inspired cocktails, you’re due for some serious relaxation by the pool.
Swap the sarong for a dreamy kaftan to simply drape over yourself whilst poolside. I’m adorning the Czarina Once In A Blue Moon Kaftan Dress, which highlights a beautiful oceanic colour palette and ornate crystal applique detailing. This little vacay essential will take me from beach to bar with the addition of strappy sculptured heels and a splash of golden accessories.
Sunset and spectacular views of the Coral Sea, here’s a cheers to The Ville’s Quarterdeck which presents the perfect place for a pre-dinner drink. Frock up in something bold and bright like this Mossman Scarlett Set, as this swanky bar draws a stylish crowd. Savour some light tapas and ask the waitstaff to surprise you with an off the menu cocktail – you won’t be disappointed, trust me!
If your chasing an island day trip and windswept summer hair, then a quick ferry ride takes you straight to Magnetic Island. My recommendation is to live out your Lizzie McGuire moment dashing from beach to beach on a scooter. A S/O to Road Runner Scooter Hire who provided the hook ups for a scooter matched perfectly to my outfit for the gram.
Make sure to capture memories using the Fuji Instax mini Link Printer, which simply prints your favourite snaps in super cute instax form. Little does boyfie know, these will soon be adorning the fridge, frames and any other spots throughout the apartment.
Let’s be honest, we never need a reason for a staycation and if your based in Queensland, now is the perfect time to indulge in a little mini break with the beau, a trip with the girl gang or some solo R&R. For all bookings and enquiries for staycations at The Ville, please visit the website for details. In the mean-time, you know where to find me, cocktail in hand!
Proudly partnering with The Ville.
