“Wonderful spot, excellent service. We booked for 2 nights, and ended up staying 5!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

I stayed there with a friend after a business trip to Australia. Kewarra was recommended to us by one of our colleague who had stayed there early November… and we could not thank her enough for her recommendation!
When most hotels in the city of Cairns do not have direct access to the beach - much to my surprise -, Kewarra Beach Resort, 20 min north of Cairns, is situated right on the beach, and a beautiful one at that! The gardens are very well kept, it gives you the impression you are actually staying in the middle of the rainforest!
Special mention to the restaurant: we actually never tried breakfast, but after we dined there the first night, we never dined anywhere else in town for the rest of our stay!
The personnel is very friendly, and helpful. They will give you good advice on excursions, etc.
On the downside, it is a bit far (30 min from Cairns, one hour from Port Douglas). There are shuttles, but a little on the expensive side, and the city buses are few and far between. A car is a much better option. Excellent base to visit the region.
Highly recommendable!

I just want to thank all of your wonderful staff for giving us the experience of a lifetime. The room was excellent and the breakfast everyday was beyond good! The grounds were so beautiful, well maintained and gave you the feeling you were I a tropical rainforest. I will definitely suggest this property to any of my clients. It was so relaxing after the hectic pace we were at in Melbourne.
Again thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Happy New Year

After 6 weeks of traveling in a fast pace through Australia, it was nice to come at ease at Kewarra beach resort. The food and service was great, the cabin overlooking the beach was superb. For my husband's birthday I arranged a private diner for two with personal waiter on the beach. Very romantic !
We will definitely come back again on our next stay.

Room Tip: Get a cabin overlooking the beach.

I went with a friend for a couple of nights at the end of November 2013. It was everything we expected and more. Our only regret was that we weren't there long enough. Only solution is to return soon.m thanks to all the staff for their assistance. Miriam & Rebecca

We stayed here mid December 2013. The resort seemed nowhere near to be full and thus it was a very peaceful stay. The setting is simply wonderful. The cabins are very comfortable as well. The beach is very nice and also pretty much empty. We also liked the rock pool, which happened to be just next to our cabin. Lot's of interesting wildlife as well. If you are here to do the usual activities in the area, I'd say this is not the place to stay, as it is fairly secluded and I booked it to enjoy the resort rather then getting up at 7 to go sailing or tour the tablelands. I'd also say that you'd definitely need a car staying here. We did not bother having breakfast here, because that would have meant getting up much to early. We did use the restaurant as well, and found it excellent and - taking into account the quality of the food - not overly expensive.

The public areas of this resort are spectacular looking out through ancient paperbarks towards the sea. The food was reasonable too. However, the rooms/cabins are starting to show their age (around 20 years) and some aspects of their designs in particular the bathrooms, are really pretty awful. Our cabin received the full afternoon sun and was unbearably hot at times. Most are well shaded and I will insist on one with afternoon shade if I was to stay again.

In terms of places to eat etc there really isn't anything around the resort. Best to head down to Trinity Beach or up to Palm Cove for a bit more life and choice

The friends we stayed with at Kewarra Beach Resort had been before so we knew it would be good, but not as good as it was. Like previous reviewers, it was just as you imagine paradise to be, so peaceful and tranquil. The accommodation was perfect ,set away from the reception and restaurant and luckily the air conditioning worked perfectly as it was extremely hot. We enjoyed the various pools and beach too. We would highly recommend it to others.
