RACV Noosa, the place to go for families.

RACV Noosa, is THE place to go for families or group travel. RACV in Noosa is a truly wonderful resort that not only has great facilities and design but wonderful staff. The grounds and the pools are excellent and the resort continues to invest and add to their already long list of facilities for guests.

Don’t you love when you go to stay somewhere and you bother to complete a review after checking out and they respond! OMG they are listening to their guests. I had added comments about the resort being very focused on smaller children and not so much to do for the older kids – your tweens and your young adults. They replied with information about their new Food and Beverage investment that has plans for a games room.

The rooms at RACV are wonderful. We stayed in a two-bedroom villa with a very spacious living room and kitchen area. There was a table inside and a table outside for meals. There are laundry facilities (I personally hate taking washing home but others can think of nothing worse than doing laundry on holidays)

This is a true resort in that they expect that you will want to entertain yourselves within the resort. Sure, there is a shuttle bus to and from Noosa but they organise so much for the kids and families that you will find a heap to do.

We stayed at Easter and the hotel had an Easter Egg hunt for the children, amongst other activities. The staff have had the foresight to provide buckets and spades at the beach (near the pool) and have a collection of pool noodles for swimmers. It’s this type of consideration that you can expect throughout your stay. There are bikes for hire and a spa as well. You will not be short of things to do.

The pool area really is the highlight – any pool that has drink service to the lounges is a great one in my mind, but you can also order pizza. You’re on holidays: think about how much the kids will love to eat their dining whilst jumping in and out of the pool. A true holiday treat. I will add that the pizza is made fresh and cooked in a woodfire oven – arguably one of the better pizza’s I have tasted.

If you are considering multigenerational travel, then you shouls add RACV Noosa to the list of places to go. The ability to book different room types is great for families of different sizes. You will still be able to enjoy the beach and meals together.  The shuttle bus does its last run into Noosa at 6.00pm which makes dinners out trickier, but I would use the bus to get there and order an Uber to get back to the resort.  Nannies of Noosa are amazing and I have used several times so perhaps even schedule some adult time without the kids. Noosa is packed with wonderful restaurants.


This is one of those resorts were a number of families can stay and enjoy a family holiday and catch-up at the same time.


Ask for a room away from the pool if you have children that need to nap during the day or go to bed early. The pool opens until 10.00pm at night.


There is not a lot of privacy – people walk past the kitchen to get to their rooms and the window looks right in, your bedroom can be seen from other rooms. The other room overlooks the road. Once the plants are more established this will be better but I suggest keeping your clothes on.

The Accomodation

The three-bedroom Precinct Luxury Villas offer a rooftop spa with district views. These two-storey, fully-self-contained three-bedroom villas offer a separate living room and media room – perfect for teenagers and smaller kids. With double lock up garages and several balconies, these are sure to make a wonderful place for a family vacation. The alternative to a rooftop spa is there are some rooms with a plunge pool.

The Enclave is an area of the resort that has three-bedroom luxury villas within a private gated precinct of RACV Noosa Resort.

Each exquisite residence, built over three or four levels and a rooftop terrace. Private lifts, heated plunge pools and multi car garages. Residents of The Enclave enjoy exclusive access to a 15-metre heated lap pool with communal BBQ area, as well as full access to all other facilities of the RACV Noosa Resort.

That said we stayed in Sanctuary apartment and that was well and truly enough space for a family who would be in and out, most of the time. As suggested previously the resort caters for different family types and sizes but also for different holidays. If you plan to spend less time out and about then the larger villas may be a better choice, if you are not planning on spending a lot of time on the room, the apartment may be all you need.

Regardless of your choice I think as a family group you will find the RACV the leader in Noosa accommodation comparative to what is available closer to the main beach. Make RACV resort at Noosa your next Noosa accommodation destination.
