Let me say the positive things first. The apartment here was one of the nicest we stayed at on our trip apart from a few housekeeping issues and the staff at the Outrigger were very helpful and pleasant. The location IS close to the centre but the down side is you can't drive in from the centre between 7am and 7pm (it's a 2-3km trip to the rear of the premises during the day). It is also up a 1 in 5 hill if you walk. A buggy takes you half way down but coming back involved either calling on our mobile (at international rates for us) or taking a taxi.

The complex feels and probably is, a residential one with underground car parks, and an overwhelming feeling of an office block. Lots of grey concrete and two tiny pools. The restaurant completed the "office canteen" atmosphere. Our "rain forest view" room looked into some woodland and the access road beyond though a massive balcony was attached it had one sun bed and was at the mercy of mosquitoes in the late afternoon.

It wasn't a bad experience and I'm sure the owners are aware of the negatives. For my own part, much as our accommodation was really enjoyable the complex just didn't have a holiday (or even a hotel) feel about it. It just felt too industrial.

Good morning,
Thank you for your review on this forum. Sorry for the delay in my response whilst I’ve been away from the property. The Resort, designed by John Mainwaring, is penned as being designed after a small Scandinavian Village rather than a more traditional Hotel in Australia. Unfortunate the structure didn’t quite fit with the feel you were expecting but, by your opining comments, pleased that you still enjoyed your time here with us.
It is certainly an honour to have you stay with us and given what you now know about the property, should the location and facilities meet with potential travel requirements in the future, we would be most grateful for the opportunity to welcoming you in again.

It's all there at ones fingertips via a buggy if needed. As we stayed in a penthouse we had the use of an infinity pool which is for penthouse guests only. No crowds,meant a peaceful relaxing afternoon. All amenities within walking distance,even the famous Hastings St. That is if you can pull yourself away from the luxury of having a penthouse with every need catered for. 3 nights of indulgence.

We visit Noosa every couple of years but this is the first time we travelled with our child that is 6 months old so wanted a kid friendly hotel and apartment style. From the moment that we arrived at the resort we loved every minute of it. Reception staff were friendly and explained all the resort facilities and even the buggy service that runs from reception to Hasting St. You do have to walk the last 50m but great service. There is ample parking a lifts to all levels. We stayed in a 1 bedroom resort view apartment and the rooms are clean, fresh and very spacious. Great Balcony room.
We ate at the View restaurant twice and it was amazing! we had a great waiter both nights and very child friendly.
The pool area is great for kids with a kids pool and big pool. There is also a lap pool in upper end of the resort.
We also used the gym that is fairly basic.
Would recommend to stay here and we are considering to re book for next year.
The only fault I had was that the bed was actually 2 twin beds put together.

Our accommodation, 2 bedroom apartment was on 3rd floor overlooking bush land through to beach. Very spacious, great layout. A pleasant short walk to Hastings St. The buggy service for us oldies was much appreciated when needed. Staff to be commended, very pleasant at all times.
Room service great and breakfast in the dining room convenient. Definitely stay again.

Hi Lynette
Thank you for this great review and also for the heads up on it originally being posted to our sister property forum. Thanks to the wonderful folks at TripAdvisor we have had it sorted and transferred across to us.

Pleased to read of your enjoyment of room service. The new menu launched in January with extended choice and, much appreciated by many guests who’d prefer not drive off site, beverages at bottle shop prices; it has been extraordinarily well received.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

I have been visiting Noosa for years, and I think after my recent stay here this will now be the only place that I want to come back to. My mum was visiting from Germany, and we had the opportunity to come up from Brisbane over the Australia Day long weekend. We wanted to stay somewhere in Noosa itself rather than Sunshine Beach which we also love, as we wanted to be close to Main Beach for my 9 year old, and we didn't want to have to use the car over the weekend. However we also didn't want to stay on Hastings Street as it's often a bit busy.

Outrigger proved to be absolutely perfect - close enough to everything, but just that little bit removed from the main street to make you feel relaxed. A lot of thought has gone into the design of the resort and the landscaping and we found it all to be very sympathetic.

The villa that we stayed in was amazing - spacious, beautifully appointed and well equipped. We stayed for 3 nights but would loved to have stayed for longer. The kitchen was fully equipped and it was a joy to spend time in the villa which was nice as we could relax there and didn't have to go out all the time.

The staff were warm and friendly and couldn't do enough to help us.

Overall I would highly recommend Outrigger for a special trip away.

Excellent stay. Had a single room National Park view apartment. Plenty of room for 2 and very we'll appointed with modern fixtures and decor. No noise experienced.

Breakfast is outstanding and the best my wife and I have experienced in our travels.

Pools great however we may have missed the very busy times?

Walk down to Hastings Street takes about 5 minutes, you will only struggle if you are unfit.

Overall a 4.5 star resort in our opinion and recommended.

Fantastic family holiday venue! We had a 3 bed villa for our family of five and it was perfect. A short walk to the beach, pools a plenty and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff in every area. The kitchen was really well appointed and there was lots of living spaces so we weren't all on top of each other. It could only be improved if a BBQ was added or available to hire.

Also, if you are visiting don't bother with a hire car (even though a spacious garage is available). Visit Ash and hook up with an electric bike. A relaxed and easy way to see all the sites and even do your grocery shopping. I couldn't believe how effortless and enjoyable the electric bikes were!
