AVANI Hotel & Resorts has launched its Keys to the City experience, what they say is an exciting, new initiative that will take the stress out of planning your dream holiday.

Guests will be able to scan a unique code on their room key and connect to locals using Facebook Messenger who can provide inside knowledge on hidden bars, secret breakfast spots, and insider secrets about the local neighbourhood.

The upscale lifestyle hotel brand is opening in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast, and is currently searching for locals who would be able to act as city guides.

Successful applicants for the Keys to the City campaign will join Queensland local, Gold Coast lover, and former Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundovic. The Australian model and TV presenter said applicants should live and breathe all things Broadbeach.

“I spend a lot of time in Brisbane and need my dose of Vitamin Sea as often as I can get it. Broadbeach is my go to destination and I can’t wait to share it with AVANI guests,” said Ms Dundovic.

“We want to find locals with just as much passion for this beautiful place. If you know where to find those hidden gems and secret spots that really make the Gold Coast special, get involved!”

General Manager Marketing, AVANI Hotels & Resorts, Kira Klein, said that her team is excited about showcasing a local look at the many perks that Broadbeach has to offer.

“We are eager to see how many self-proclaimed Broadbeach experts are keen to come on board and share their tips on the best places to eat, drink, shop and play with our guests,” Ms Klein said.

“We are all about giving guests the details that matter, and with our AVANIMe initiative, we successfully partnered with bloggers and experts to share their tips, so our guests can experience the best inside and outside our hotels. We thought we’d take it one step further for the launch of AVANI Broadbeach Residences and include local explorers too,” said Ms Klein.

Interested applicants can enter by heading to the AVANI Broadbeach Residences Facebook page and share why they deserve to be a Broadbeach Keys to the City guide. Answers that are bursting with creativity will go into a draw to win an overseas, luxury AVANI experience that includes return airfares and 4 night’s accommodation in Auckland, New Zealand. The official opening for AVANI Broadbeach is Monday 4 December.
