HotelsCombined recognises Brisbane Holiday Village amongst the best hotels in Australia!

 

HotelsCombined, the Australian-based hotel price comparison website, has selected Brisbane Holiday Village to receive the official Recognition of Excellence Award!

This selection has come from HotelsCombined’s extensive surveys using data from millions of guest reviews for a wide range of accommodation within Australia.

Brisbane Holiday Village has consistently produced a high satisfaction rating among guests and travel industry experts. The Village received 483 reviews and earned an impressive guest rating of 9.2 out of 10 on the HotelsCombined platform.

Brisbane Holiday Village joins an elite group of hotels around the world that have been awarded the HotelsCombined Recognition of Excellence. This exclusive collection of highly-rated accommodations has been chosen using a strict set of criteria such as the quality and consistency of reviews, the absence of recurring or unresolved issues with customers, the popularity of the property and of course, the overall resulting score.

“Guest satisfaction is our highest priority; our departments work together collaboratively to ensure that every guest has the best possible experience when they stay at Brisbane Holiday Village. We are thrilled that this is recognised in our guest reviews which motivates us to keep doing better!” said Brisbane Holiday Village’s Manager.

Dreamworld Investment Signals New Era for Theme Park

Dreamworld’s 70-million-dollar investment into “new world-class attractions” is set to signal a new era for one of Australia’s favourite theme parks.

 

As guests of the theme park celebrated the opening of the highly anticipated 20-million-dollar, Sky Voyager flying theatre attraction, Dreamworld’s Chief Executive, John Osborne has revealed that the Sky Voyager is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Dreamworld’s plans for the future.

Investing in Customer Experiences

Mr Osborne noted that “in a business where success is measured by the smiles on guests’ faces, Dreamworld’s new leadership team has been paying close attention to improving customer experience.”

Dreamworld’s overall 70-million-dollar investment will include a state-of-the-art, customer-centric ticketing system for Dreamworld, WhiteWater World and SkyPoint, to start the positive experience for guests as they walk through the doors. Dreamworld’s food and beverage facilities will also receive an upgrade, along with the addition of more entertainment and event areas.

Dreamworld noted that “the investment into new rides, attractions and technologies to improve customer experience is key for Dreamworld’s future direction.”

Dreamworld’s investment announcement, along with the opening of Sky Voyager, is a fantastic start to the transformation of the iconic theme park.

 

A New Rollercoaster

Dreamworld has revealed plans for a new 30-million-dollar rollercoaster, designed and built by one of the world’s most reputable rollercoaster manufacturers – Mack Rides.

The new rollercoaster, which is yet to be named, is set to span 1.2 kilometres, include multiple inversions, a stall, reversed twisted halfpipe, and reach a top speed of 105km/hr.

Thrill-seeking guests will have the option to take their ride experience to the next level, as the new rollercoaster also features the world’s first separate spinning gondola, which will be attached to the rear of the rollercoaster train.

 

ABC KIDS World

Thrill-seekers aren’t the only beneficiaries of Dreamworld’s grand plans.

ABC KIDS World, home to The Wiggles, Bananas in Pyjamas, Hoot and Hootabelle, and Play School, will also receive a multi-million-dollar refurbishment.

 

WhiteWater World

Dreamworld’s WhiteWater World Waterpark is also receiving a 7 million dollar investment into a new waterslide complex. The complex will be created by Swimplex and Polin Australia, features six new body slides, five unique ‘splashtacular’ experiences and natural light effects.

Daniel Leaver from Swimplex commented “body slides are the purest form of waterslide you will experience – it’s just you, the water, and a big splash at the bottom.

 

Location

Dreamworld is located just off the Pacific Motorway at Coomera, Queensland, – just 20 minutes south of Brisbane Holiday Village. To get there from Brisbane, follow the signs to the Pacific Motorway and the Gold Coast. Take the Coomera exit (exit 54) and follow the signs to Dreamworld through a few roundabouts.

 

Opening Hours

Open 7 days a week, from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm.

Everyone deserves a holiday! Here at Brisbane holiday Village we have solved your budget woes. We are excited to announce that we now offer our guests a ‘book now, pay later’ payment plan option!

Plan your Ultimate Lay-By Holiday with Brisbane Holiday Village

Everyone deserves a holiday! Here at Brisbane holiday Village we have solved your budget woes. We are excited to announce that we now offer our guests a ‘book now, pay later’ payment plan option! It’s like Layby, for Holidays!

 

Take the stress out of planning a family holiday. We have all the information you need on how to put your holiday on lay-by and why a payment plan is the best and most affordable way to budget for your next family holiday!

The Fine Print:

  • Payment plans are available on bookings worth a minimum of $400 per stay.
  • Payment plans are available for stays booked 1 month or more in the future.
  • You have the option to choose from weekly or fortnightly payments.
  • All booking payments will be finalised 14 days prior to your arrival.
  • There is a $1.50 admin fee per transaction.
  • Payment plans only are only offered for stays booked directly on our website.

 

The Pros of Lay-by Holidays

  • Set and Forget!

One of the best things about setting up a payment plan is the ‘set-and-forget’ mentality! When you set up your payment plan, you can choose to make payments off your accommodation weekly or fortnightly – whatever suits you. Simply set and forget!

  • No interest

Using a lay-by payment plan as opposed to putting your accommodation on your credit card can save you a huge amount of money. Why? Because our payment plans are interest free! While credit cards can charge anywhere from 12% to 30%, our payment plans don’t charge you interest and the $1.50 fee per transaction is affordable and flexible according to your payment structure!

Also, unlike credit cards, if you don’t make a payment, it won’t affect your credit rating.

  • Plan Ahead

Have a special event coming up down the road? A birthday, wedding or other occasion? If you plan for it early, you can pay it off in instalments, easing the pressure off your wallet! With your accommodation under control, you can concentrate on your special event! You could even buy extra special gifts that might cost a bit more, but will be remembered by the recipient. Remember, you’re saving dollars by not using your credit cards!

We hope to see you at our Village, on your Lay-by Holiday!

Don’t forget: we offer a BEST rate guarantee on our Holiday CabinsCaravan and Camp Sites when you book directly with us! So grab a great holiday deal and give our friendly reception staff a call on (07) 3341 6133 or book online for payment plan options.

Science says: Live long and holiday!

The key to longevity.

If anyone really needs a reason to go on a holiday- we’ve got a good one. Holidays help you live longer!
If you’ve got the wanderlust bug and need an excuse to set off on a holiday, tell everyone, that science demands that you take this holiday… or you will die!
Ok, that’s not completely true BUT research has revealed that going on holiday helps you live longer!

The study says…

The University of Helsinki recently published in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Ageing. The 40-year-long study found people who take less than three weeks off work annually were 37% more likely to die young compared to those that gave higher priority to their holiday time.
The University recruited over 1,200 businessmen between the ages of 40 and 55 in 1974 and 1975. Each participant was at risk for cardiovascular disease, the risk factors including smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or being overweight.
The results were presented at the European Society of Cardiology conference in Munich, recommending doctors to prescribe “holidays” to at-risk patients instead of a lifestyle overhaul.
This study is just the latest in a string of studies that proves the benefits of travel. Among them, it’s been shown that traveling makes you happier than buying things, makes you more attractive if you’re single and even makes you more employable in the long-term!

Health benefits of holidays

Holidays make people happy! We don’t really need science to tell us that a link exists between holidays and happiness. Going on a holiday can be as important to your health as exercising and eating your fruits and veggies! In fact, scientists claim that: failing to get away from the day-to-day stress of the office overrules any benefits gained from eating healthily and doing exercise.

The key to Happiness

  1. The first element of happiness is positive emotions.
    • Joy, interest, contentment and love.
  2. The next element is meaning.
    • Giving people a sense of purpose.
  3. The final part is engagement.
    • Giving people a sense of involvement.

What else do holidays do to boost life expectancy?

  1.    Reduce depression and stress
    • Taking a break can help reduce stress levels, which in turn can boost immunity.
    • Visiting a new place and taking out time exclusively for yourself and family or friends makes you believe that there is so much more to look forward to in the world.
  2.    Get more sleep
    • Holidays help you to relax and get more sleep which is great for your mental health. Peeple who don’t take regular holidays tend to work longer hours and get less sleep, which has a severe impact on health and productivity in the long term.
  3.    Improve productivity:
    • Going on holidays can help improve your productivity at work. You can come back with a fresh mind and fresh motivation to deliver better at your workplace.

You don’t have to go abroad – take a local break in Brisbane

Holidays don’t necessarily mean travelling to another country. Often big overseas holidays equal big costs, lots of time taken to save and stress involved in planning itinerary, passports etc..

So why not plan for your big overseas holiday every 3-5 years, and in the mean time (the in-between years) why not look local?

Not only does Brisbane Holiday Village offer a great range of holiday cabinscaravan sites, and camping accommodation, but we’re here for your health! We offer amazing facilities and a tropical resort-style feel to your holiday that will leave you refreshed and ready to take on the world again!

Grab a great holiday deal by booking directly with us! OR give our friendly reception staff a call on (07) 3341 6133.

So go ahead and book your much-needed holiday – your life could be at risk!

Solar Panels: Eco-friendly sustainability on the rise at BHV

Being sustainable and responsible for the environment is becoming more and more important in this day and age. That’s why Brisbane Holiday Village have installed a massive 50KW solar panel grid system to help us be as environmentally sustainable and as eco-friendly as possible! Solar Panels – the new black?

Solar Panels: Eco-friendly sustainability on the rise at BHV

Being sustainable and responsible for the environment is becoming more and more important in this day and age. That’s why Brisbane Holiday Village have installed a massive 50KW solar panel grid system to help us be as environmentally sustainable and as eco-friendly as possible!

Solar Panels – the new black?

Let’s face it, solar energy is definitely the future trend of energy. These days, many households have converted their homes to run on solar energy – So why not power our business?

Brisbane Holiday Village has spent 7 months developing and installing an awesome solar panel power system! Our Reception, Maintenance and Housekeeping buildings are now powered by the SUN!

We are working hard to be part of the environmental solution, rather than part of the problem!

 

Why did BHV invest in solar panels?

  • Energy Alternative – and renewable
    Solar energy is a great alternative to replace fossil fuel as the major energy source is the sun, which is (luckily) renewable at absolutely no cost!
  • It’s environmentally friendly – pollution free and no greenhouse gasses
    We believe that effort should be made to reduce the pollution entering our environment. Solar panels are able to catch the energy from the sun and convert it to electricity! This means that  solar energy uses less carbon = less coal = smaller carbon footprint!
  • Low/no maintenance
    Once installed, solar panel systems can last twenty to thirty years without major maintenance needed! Sure, a check once a year is ideal, but still, a penny saved!
  • Cost effective
    Less electricity and power is taken from the power grids in the community. This makes actually makes solar cheeper! The upside is that we can spend all the extra money that we saved on maintenance and power grid costs and put it towards new facilities for our holiday park!

How does solar improve the park?

Brisbane Holiday Village has worked hard to develop our solar system as an extension of our ongoing solar development at the Village. We have (so-far) integrated solar tube lights and solar hot water into our updated amenities blocks, restaurant, housekeeping and reception areas, as well as providing all of our holiday cabins with solar hot water systems.

We have reduced our carbon footprint and impact on the environment, and are looking to invest the savings from our Solar panel program into new facilities and eco-friendly options to prolong the future of our Holiday Park, and our earth!

Not only has the power taken from the community grid been reduced, but our Village can sustain its core running power from the sun!

 

BHV’s Sustainability Awards

Brisbane Holiday Village has won many awards over the years. One of our proudest achievements is our Gold Level Gumnut Award. The Gumnut Award Program is a progressive rating scheme for holiday, tourist and residential parks that recognises a proven commitment to

environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

To make sure that BHV is part of the environmental solution rather than the problem, we have employed the following initiatives:

  • Installed bore water pumps to minimise the amount of town water used for maintaining the gardens.
