Absolutely amazing venue to host a wedding. We came from interstate and so did all our guests and it was such a hit! All the guests were blown away with how stunning the glasshouse was and the penthouse happened to be free on our wedding night so we were able to take some amazing photos up there. Destiny was our wedding coordinator and she went above and beyond for us. If I had to go back I would pick the Island again and again.

Great venue at the heart of Surfers Paradise. Was very convenient being located centrally and having accommodation on site. A lot of our family and friends stayed there as well which made the day a lot less stressful. The food was incredible and the reception was stunning.

Great vibe great food, excellent venue space and versatility. Helpful wedding planner, service on the night needed more wait staff but other than that we can’t complain. Everyone was wowed by the venue, but own decorations are needed, so it’s a bit pricey.

Great venue but be prepared to have to share the Penthouse with other functions (2 rooms on one floor)!
