“Returned to this amazing location, what an experience”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

I returned here from the 8-11th May 2014. When I decided to return to my favorite holiday destination in Australia (Cairns district) I had no hesitation in returning to Kewarra Beach Resort.

My decision to return was well founded, I of course knew I loved the location and amenities at the resort having stayed here before. What stands out in my visits are the staff are amazing. They really do go above and beyond. Many staff I remembered from my trip(s) prior and they also remembered me which considering how many people the come across is remarkable.

Great thanks to all the staff, particular thanks to Carlo and Terrence in the Bar and Restaurant who I remembered from previous visits but also to a new addition Fran who offered great service in the restaurant,

Keep up the great work!

Room Tip: All rooms are great and offer a different experience or perspective of the resort. If its not to bus...

We were married here in April 2013. We can not recommend this resort highly enough as a destination wedding venue. The staff were incredibly helpful and worked with us to give us the wedding of our dreams. The location is great. We were married on the beach and had our reception on the nautilus deck with the beach BBQ package. The food was the best food we have ever eaten, absolutely exquisite. The paperback restaurant is also fantastic. It is set within beautiful gardens with lovely paperbark trees surrounding you. Thanks to Giannina, the wedding coordinator, Carlos, and all his staff for making our special day better than we had dreamed. Also I highly recommend Ben from bluesky photography, we are thrilled with our photos.

Wanted a relaxing place for a short 5 day getaway, Kewarra beach resort was fantastic. The location is incredible, waking up to rainforest surrounding the room is very relaxing. Staff were friendly and welcoming, food at the restaurant was incredible. Would come back again for sure!!

I wanted to show a European friend something of the rainforest so we booked Kewarra. It was fine but not really what we wanted - the pools are "natural" which as and Australian I loved but to her it was not something she could get her head around. The rooms are simple cabins - again she did not like that so we left for a more "normal" hotel, If you don't like being in the forest with nature in a simple cabin then don't stay here. The food in the restaurant was fantastic a real must!!! The staff were helpful and kind

Room Tip: All rooms have a similar outlook - NATURE....

Hubby and I stayed in March 2014, had a great 5 nights. From travelling to the barrier reef, to also going on skyrail and the scenic train. Customer service was great from booking to tours to even the airport transfer. Certainly will be returning in the not too distant future. Thanks Kewarra staff.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in the rainforest wasn't too far to the ocean.

We were supposed to stay at the Kewarra Beach Resort in early March 2014, but we had to cancel the rest of our trip when my father passed away unexpectedly and we returned immediately to the US. Out of 10 prepaid non-refundable hotel stays that we had to cancel for the rest of our planned trip, only 1 (Kewarra Beach Resort) was unwilling to issue a refund, despite the circumstances and providing them with a copy of the death certificate. Not a good experience. We plan to resume our trip at some point in the near future, but I would NEVER give my business to people who can't see past a billing technicality and their own bottom line to do the right thing. Hopefully you won't be in this situation, but don't expect any mercy from their management team if you have the occasion to need it. BUYER BEWARE.
