The LuWOW Lodge is a Tiki hideaway holiday home located in Coolum Beach in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast: the Hawaii of Australia! Tucked away in a lush rainforest on top of a cliff, it has sea views through the treetop canopy and an abundance of bird and wildlife

 

At the heart of the lodge is an exquisite fresh water lagoon pool, heated during the cooler months and cooled in the hotter ones. It features a light up ‘grotto’ spa hidden behind a Tiki waterfall, stepping stones, an iridescent beach, and a thrilling plunge slide.

The LuWOW Lodge has a ‘volcanic’ open plan kitchen featuring a light-up carved canoe and houses an awesome collection of Tiki mugs and puffer fish. Enjoy a Mai-Tai amidst the jungle canopy and dine on our treetop verandah listening to parrots & cockatoos with the sea breeze in your hair. Evenings in can be spent in The LuWOW Lounge enjoying your favourite exotica music and watching retro B-movies.
