Torquay is nestled right on the starting point of the Great Ocean Road, and the entry to the fantastic sites and scenery this coast holds. Stay at The Sands Torquay for the epitome of convenience in refurbished contempoary rooms overlooking the stunning 18-hole golf course. Having recently reopened under new management after a multimillion dollar refurbishment, the resort features an indoor pool, restaurant, wellness centre, driving range and more.
Escape for two or three nights (or combine two for four!) and enjoy a gourmet hamper featuring local, seasonal food and wine in your room on arrival. You'll stay in an upgraded golf view room for each category, boasting stunning panoramic views of the golf course and gardens. Whether a seasoned golfer, or simply for something to do, take advantage of the complimentary bucket of driving range balls and 50% of cart hire and see if you've got it like Cameron Smith (Australian professional golfer for those that don't know). Make the most of your stay with a lazy gauranteed 11am checkout.
Seeing the Great Ocean Road is a must, though we also recommend venturing into Torquay to soak up the surf culture, given it's the birthplace of Quicksilver and Rip Curl, and the town oozes with chilled vibes. There's plenty of cafes and restaurants if that's your vibe, otherwise head to the beach and take in the stunning coastline.
Boasting a recent refurbishment as a result of new experienced management (Belgravia Leisure), The Sands Torquay is just 6 minutes from the beach, accessible from both Melbourne and Avalon airports, an 80 and 35 minute drive respectively. The resort offers a premium golf resort accommodation experience or a perfect, regional weekend away. Have a hit on the 18 hole championship golf course designed by Australian Open winner Stuart Appleby, or dine in the Clubhouse Restaurant, Bar & Lounge where their chefs offer a selection of locally inspired meals in a relaxed atmosphere.
The spacious studio rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and the suites are perfect for accommodating families in interconnecting style. The 25 meter indoor heated lap pool (28 degrees) and onsite health club are available for a full workout year round.
At the start of the Great Ocean Road Torquay centre is only a few km's from the Resort and surfers can travel 10 minutes to famous Bells Beach. World class Restaurants are within an hour of the Resort and with plenty of wineries in between enjoy a great escape.
