Have you ever dreamt of that Gossip Girl moment where you channel your inner Serena Van Der Woodsen and say, "Oh yes. This year I'm summer-ing in the Hamptons?"
Yep, us too.
But perhaps your bank balance doesn't stretch quite as far as Ms Van Der Woodsen and your annual leave doesn't allow for a whole summer overseas either.
Well, there may be some hope on the horizon as here at Be, we may have found just the treat for you to be able to live that #LuxeLife and is only a hop skip and a jump away.

And totally doable in a long weekend. Win, win, win.
Enter 'cabana culture' which has just arrived in the Sunshine Coast at the Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort where Be was invited as a guest.
Channel your inner Gossip Girl goddess with a butler there to serve you champagne, cocktails and fruit platters.
They'll even hand-feed you the grapes. Okay, we're kidding, but we can dream, right?!
Live up the five-star life poolside, laying in the sun, scrolling through your personal iPad menu with all the delicious food on offer, or chilling out with the selection of magazines they offer.
It'll cost you a fair few pennies to enjoy this luxe life with prices starting from $125 for half a day and $175 for a full day.
But, look on the bright side, it's cheaper than a big jaunt in the Hamptons or if you're feeling really posh, the French Riviera. Plus, Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich are also fans.
And, of course, after a hard day's rest in the cabanas, make sure you saunter down to the Riviera Bar for a cheeky gin and tonic followed by a relaxing dinner at the Noosa Beach House.
There you have it folks, how to channel your inner Serena Van Der Woodsen on the Sunshine Coast.
