About The Rise

“Wow!” is the typical reaction when guests open the door to their apartment and see the views.

The Rise is a stunning, architecturally designed apartment complex, set among lush tropical style gardens featuring relaxing waterfalls and ponds.  Guests have access to a heated resort style pool and spa surrounded by sun-lounges.

Perfectly located in the centre of Noosa Heads, just a short walk to the beach, river and national park, as well as the retail precincts of Hastings St and Noosa Junction for your shopping and dining needs.

Leave your car in the secure underground car park and set out on foot, whether heading for some koala spotting in the National Park, catching a perfect wave at the points, cruising on the river or shopping and dining, it is all on your doorstep.

The apartments at The Rise were designed for holiday living, so you can have a truly self-contained stay, with full kitchens featuring modern high end appliances, a laundry and full size bedrooms and bathrooms.

The Rise Noosa really is your home away from home, features such as large open plan format plus the balconies and courtyards have made it a popular long stay base for professional athletes and guests.  The bedrooms have built-in robes and large windows to take in the light and breezes.   Couples, families and groups of friends all find staying at The Rise enjoyable as there is plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing and unwinding in your own space.

Low key and hidden from the street by a row of large fig trees, The Rise is Noosa’s best kept secret when it comes to self-contained apartments, much to the joy of the many repeat guests who stay every year.  Guess regularly trade up, from their small room in Hastings St for the bright spaciousness of The Rise and to relax away from the crowds  but still close to everything
