“Gunning for the great outdoors? A romantic getaway? Or perhaps a rural retreat with the family? Whatever you desire, there’s a big, beautiful country out there waiting to welcome you.

Whether you are looking for quirky artistic gems, relaxing wilderness retreats or island oases, the Sunshine State has it all.

THE LOCATION A two-bedroom apartment in the middle of one of the Gold Coast’s most happening ’hoods. It’s across the road from a sweep of pandanus-fringed beach, 15 minutes’ drive from Coolangatta Airport.

THE PLACE Pass through a shared entrance in a 1960s residential block of six apartments to find Pandanus, your designer stay with custom interiors by designer Anna Spiro, the clever creative behind Halcyon House.

THE EXPERIENCE The Bang & Olufsen sound system, Moss River linen and vintage cocktail trolley (stocked to order at extra cost) will have you dreaming of staying forever. Pop the cork off the welcoming bottle of Krug and soak it up from the balcony overlooking the waterfront esplanade. A second apartment, Hibiscus, will open in 2020.

DON’T MISS Order Bon Sol’s “beach club” set with kitsch umbrellas, lounges and an esky filled with drinks ($150). Heading out for dinner? Try Restaurant Labart, the mod-Oz diner from chef Alex Munoz (formerly of Sydney’s Monopole and Cirrus Dining).

bon Sol partners with Labart restaurant

As one of Burleigh Heads’ only luxury accommodation providers, bon Sol is proud to offer a $200 voucher to Labart restaurant (minimum four-night stay), to experience one of Queensland’s most coveted restaurants. This is exclusively available to bon Sol guests to enjoy an unforgettable meal.

bon Sol’s space is designed by interiors expert Anna Spiro and inspired by the colours and textures of the ‘60s and ‘70s.  There’s also Moss River linen and beach towels, marble vanities in both bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchen and two bedrooms suitable to sleep four. 

Guests can also enjoy some R&R and a dedicated property manager will prepare a chic Beach Club set up at the beach beside the property featuring kitsch umbrellas, lounges, and an esky with curated drinks. 

bon Sol is in a central location in Burleigh Heads within walking distance of popular dining like Labart, shopping and pubs. 

“My wife and I live on The Esplanade in Burleigh and for me, there’s nothing better than waking up to the sound of waves crashing and a short 30-second walk across the road to have my feet in the sand,” Alex Munoz Labart says. “Burleigh Heads is a pretty special place and I can’t think of a better area for visitors to base themselves when they holiday on the Gold Coast. We have more highly awarded restaurants in Burleigh than anywhere else on the Gold Coast so you can walk to lunch and dinner reservations rather than wasting money on Uber’s or taxi’s back and forth every day.”

About Labart 

Labart is a new Australian restaurant situated in the beachside suburb of Burleigh Heads, QLD. The first restaurant by chef Alex Munoz Labart and wife Karla, Labart champions sustainability, seasonality and simplicity while hospitality remains paramount. 

The eponymous restaurant is the product of a career-long ambition for the chef, having spent time in the kitchens at some of Sydney’s top restaurants including Marque and Est. Most recently, Alex held the position of Head Chef at Monopole, Potts Point and Head Chef at Cirrus Dining, Barangaroo. Both restaurants were awarded 2 Chef’s Hats by the Good Food Guide under his leadership. 

The 55-seat restaurant houses an open kitchen with charcoal grill, while polished concrete floors, forest green walls and walnut tones offer a design motif that combines urban with organic. Tucked behind Burleigh Head’s bustling main street and away from the beach, Labart delivers warmth and conviviality in a relaxed environment. 


Just weeks after opening, Labart was awarded ‘QLD’s Hottest Restaurant’ in The Australian’s 2018 Hot 50 Restaurants. This year, Labart was again included in The Australian’s 2019 Hot 50 Restaurants and was the only Gold Coast restaurant to make the list. The Courier Mail’s 2019 Food Awards saw Labart nominated in four categories including Restaurant of the Year, Regional Restaurant of the Year, Service of the Year and Chef of the Year for Alex Munoz Labart, with the team taking home Regional Restaurant of the Year.
