Sanctuary Cove is a gated community, in the suburb of Hope Island in the Gold Coast area of Queensland, Australia. It was the first of such developments in Australia and is notable for its impact in planning legislation in Queensland which had to be altered to allow it to proceed, due to the privatisation of such large areas of urban land. It covers an area of 474 hectares south of the Coomera River close to its mouth. To the east of Sanctuary Cove is Coomera Island.Sanctuary Cove provides a completely self-contained residential environment with its own shopping centre and entertainment facilities, with the addition of many of the facilities of a holiday resort, such as boating marinas and golf courses. Sanctuary Cove continues to grow as remaining land is developed.It is home to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show which has been held annually since 1988.HistoryThe property was developed by Mike Gore and launched in 1986. In 1992, Gore fled the country, leaving the development in receivership for many years to come. The property was bought by Mulpha Australia Limited in 2002. On 9 April 2010 a new golf clubhouse was launched.ResortInterContinental owns the luxury hotel at Sanctuary Cove. The resort was previously called the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove as was managed by Hyatt. In late 2012, management was taken over by Mulpha. It contains 247 rooms.

  • Lovely atmosphere in the village - love dining at Jonez on Food Restaurant and shopping at Calypso Resort and Swimwear who are the friendliest people with a great selection of clothing. The boating atmosphere is calming and refreshing. Nice place to visit for a few hours.
  • Sanctuary Cove is a nice relaxing place with things to do. Eating lunch looking over seeing fish in the water. The food was amazing as well. Everyone is very friendly and is willing to help you get around. It is very safe as well, I must of seen a security car everywhere
  • Sanctuary cove is the epitome of comfort and class. Fine dining with family friendly locations. There is something for everyone wanting to indulge themselves a little.
  • We went to Sanctuary Cove for a bit if a Sunday drive and lunch at one of the restaurants there. It is a very pretty, area with a great variety of places to dine by the water and lovely bouquet shops to wander through.
