Just 12km from Port Douglas, this is the most amazing place to set off to explore one of Mother Natures greatest gifts to us, "The Great Barrier Reef". Out on its own headland, with private beach, Bungalows are scattered throughout the rainforest offering luxury, privacy and complete tranquility. Travelling alone, I found the staff all warm and welcoming, making me feel completely at home and organising all of my activities, including a trip to the reef, a horse ride along the beach and a trip to the Daintree Rainforest. The Day Spa was in a Bungalow at the end of a small track, my 2 hour treatment was blissful, leaving no trace of stress or tension in this little body. I have no hesitation in recommending this property to any one going to see the Reef and Daintree. Whilst the Resort offers seclusion, Port Douglas is only a short trip, in the free shuttle bus, where there are plenty of Restaurants and Shops. The Restaurant at the Resort though, was where I chose to eat most meals. My god they have the most amazing seafood there. Meals were all delicious and the views world class. I love this place, I wouldn't change a thing and will definitely be going back. I have attached a few pictures for you too. Enjoy!!!
