My husband surprised me with 4 nights at Thala Beach Lodge for our anniversary and we loved it. It was quiet, private and peaceful. There are so many spots to get away from the world, fabulous views, and we loved the whole reception/lobby area, permanently open to the air and the jungle views and wildlife. The staff were all friendly and helpful, good coffee (!). One thing that really stood out for me was the absence of 'rules'. So many places are plastered with signs saying 'don't do this, don't do that', 'only do this between the hours of...', and Thala isn't. Understated, confident enough in the product not be be flashy, and very special.

Panoramic views are enjoyed from open-sided Osprey's Restaurant across the forest canopy and beyond to the Coral Sea. Guests and visitors dine amongst birds in the surrounding treetops, whilst enjoying modern Australian cuisine with friendly and attentive service. Granite boulders, waterfalls and overhanging trees create natural swimming pools blending discretely within the environment. Paths wind through rainforests and woodlands, connecting with secluded coves and beaches, passing through habitats for endemic birds, wildlife and flora. Guests enjoy complimentary guided nature tours by onsite rangers including tree planting, stargazing at an outdoor observatory, beach discovery, wildlife walks and bird-watching tours.
