A designated smoking area is provided for residents and guests on the ground floor, near the SkyPoint entry (western side of building, Clifford Street).  Please ask Reception or the Tour Desk for the location of the smoking area.

Is there parking available?

Q1 Resort & Spa includes complimentary car parking with each apartment booked.  Parking is located in a secure undergound car park, underneath the Q1 building.  The car park is accessed using your room key - so you will need to check-in at Reception prior to accessing the car park.

One car space is allocated for One Bedroom and Two Bedroom apartments.  The Three Bedroom and Three Bedroom Sub Penthouse Apartments are allocated two car parking spaces. The Four Bedroom Executive Spa, Four Bedroom Penthouse and Presidential Penthouse are allocated three car spaces. Q1 Resort & Spa guests will be provided with a parking pass when you check-in to display on your dash board, and you must park in a space marked with an orange dot.  Additional parking spaces are subject to availability; please ask Reception at the time of check-in.

Q1 Resort & Spa also has a visitor car park, located underneath the Q1 building.  The visitor car park is complimentary and open from 7:30am - 9:00pm daily.  Visitors must park their car in a Q1 Resort signed park and register their car with Reception to collect a parking pass if parking for more than 2 hours.  Separate parking spaces are available in the same car park if visiting SkyPoint Observation Deck - please register your car with the SkyPoint team at their entry.

Please note that any cars found parked illegally may be towed at the owner's cost. The height restriction of the secure underground car parking area is strictly 2.1 meters.
