Having been fortunate enough to stay at many great resorts around the world, stumbling across Bedarra was a real treat. Our stay was fantastic. Its a really relaxing atmosphere, almost like being in your own home but wonderfully looked after in an intimate environment. There are no rules, you help yourself to the bar and for the most, everything is included in the room rate - that makes for a great holiday. I think the thing that really made it was the staff - all delightful. The owner (Sam) was really helpful and friendly, the new GM was great (and only a week into the job!) with anticipated attention to detail and finally the rest of the staff - Jimmy (great food!), Geoff, Mikie and Jodi were so great to deal with. Thank you (and loved your cocktails). We stayed in North East Villa 14 and would recommend this for its privacy and good views out across the bay (it's the most elevated villa). We'll be back for another stay, thanks for having us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled amongst a backdrop of secluded hidden bays, majestic granite boulders, white sandy beaches, and towering coconut Bedarra Island is the ultimate definition of barefoot luxury. With just seven private villas, each with uninterrupted ocean views, this all inclusive sustainable island resort will ensure you find yourself in a sanctuary of complete solace and seclusion as you explore the tropical rainforest, beautiful beaches and fringing reefs. Our Executive Chef prepares gourmet meals daily and local produce and tropical fruits are a feature of our ever changing menu. The open terrace restaurant, bar and lounge are the heart and soul of Bedarra, where guests converge over a delicious and ever-changing menu, or to indulge at the legendary open bar. An exquisite menu is matched only by the sublime beauty of deserted beaches fringed by lush rainforest. Find your own table for two on the pool deck or terrace for an intimate dining experience or join the Long Table for a dinner party style congregation with your fellow guests and resort host.Although our ethos remains centred on relaxation, we do offer a number of less sedentary activities including kayaking, stand up paddle boards, snorkelling, fishing, tennis and self-guided interactive walks through the verdant rainforest. For the more adventurous and at an additional fee we can arrange deep sea fishing, scuba-diving, and scenic helicopter flights. We pride ourselves on offering each guest a unique experience. Whether it be a candlelit dinner for two on our private deck under the starry night, packing a gourmet hamper in your own dinghy for a romantic picnic on one of the nearby deserted islands, or booking the entire resort with a group of friends or family for a bespoke tropical island experience you will remember forever. Bedarra is situated seven kilometres off the coast of Mission Beach, Tropical North Queensland (approximately 140km south of Cairns). Scenic 35 minute heli-transfers are available from Cairns airport directly to our beachside heli-pad.
