The Ramada Couran Cove Island Resort is a spectacular place to spend a long weekend, a holiday and indulge in fine dining. Imagine, drifting off to sleep to the distant sound of rolling waves and waking up to the call of native birds. No other sounds, no cars, just the sound of nature. It’s magic, it’s beautiful, it is the perfect island escape. We have spent many weekends and holidays at Couran Cove, introducing our overseas visitors, family and friends, to a truly Australian nature experience. Couran Cove Island Resort is on South Stradbroke Island, a calm, short ferry ride across the Broadwater. Sail in any way you like, by ferry, water taxi or on your own yacht. Top this island magic with the best fine dining experience with the most exciting, innovative and delicious food and matching wines – you’re in heaven. ‘The Restaurant’ is overlooking the Marina and is the perfect location for pre-dinner drinks to watch the sunset. The settings indoors and outdoors are both relaxing and stylish to enjoy a wonderful candle lit dinner.
