The Taphouse Hotel Group purchased the grand old Coolangatta Sands - known locally as The Sands - in 2006. Since then The Sands has undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment, transforming it into a contemporary hotel, bistro and lounge bar with modern amenities and an historic personality.

First granted a license to sell liquor in 1911 this beautiful old pub has seen many a transition throughout the years. A landmark of Coolangatta, many patrons consider it their "watering hole" - almost a second home.

The Sands sits in the heart of Coolangatta and is only a 100m stroll to the nearest surf beach. Gold Coast Airport, catering for domestic and international travellers, is only five minutes away. On the southern tip of the famous Gold Coast, we are only 40 minutes by public transport from the famous theme parks and offer easy access to the world heritage hinterland ranges.

The Sands features modern dining in the Bistro, TAB facilities with plasma screens to view races in the Port o Call public bar, and an entertainment lounge delivering a variety of entertainment including free live music.

The brand new 111-bed backpacker hostel occupies the 1st floor of The Sands and offers clean, safe, modern and affordable facilities. International travellers are welcome. We have dorm rooms as well as private rooms and the large balcony features comfortable lounges and views of Coolangatta Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
