Flew straight in from the UK and couldn't have been in a better place to fight jet lag. What's so good about Bloomfields starts with the journey from Cairns (by air, road and sea); the resorts remoteness (hidden in the bush), the accommodation (private and quiet with views over Weary Bay [plus the comfy bed!]; the food (three cooked meals a day, you never go hungry at Bloomfields, but will put on weight!). HOWEVER top of the list must be 'the staff'. What a great bunch of people. Our introduction to the resort came via Julian who met us at Cairns airport, he is a great ambassador for Bloomfields. Ben and Courtney, the resort managers, met us on our arrival and catered for our every whim. Gary and Paul our guides and bush and marine knowledge experts (the croc dundees of Bloomfields) and Bianca, the chef, who cooks to perfection. Thanks to you all for making our stay so memorable. Finally. we must mention the 'other guests'. How lucky we were to have 'the bunch of Aussies from Sydney' to keep us company; they taught us to fish off the pier (never caught anything) but above all were good fun. The thought of communal dining was a little off putting at first but it worked out perfectly. Last but not least the organised trips. It was well worth going on the half day river trip and the bush walk; we became acquainted with the local wild life and learnt a lot from our guides. A fantastic place to stay ... thanks again.

An out of this world honeymoon trip. From the initial journey to the resort to the reef tour, the crocodile trip, the food and the games with other guests. Everything was simply fantastic.

The reef trip was a real highlight for us, with just six on the boat we were so well looked after by Shayne and Paulie who made sure the strong and weak swimmers all got the most from the trip and the fishing and kept everyone involved.

Whilst the setting was fantastic, the staff make Bloomfield what it is. Craig, Cory, Ben and Courtney were extremely welcoming, with Brooke and Kayla providing great and very friendly service.

The food was consistently good. Not too fancy or cheffy, but very tasty and fresh with clean flavours and making use of the local fish and seafood.

You can do as much or as little as you like, but as someone who doesn't do beach holidays, the various trips, walks and tours were very informative and enjoyable.

We went for a hideaway room with an outdoor jacuzzi which was absolutely wonderful and provided a stunning view from a high position on the hill.

Room Tip: Room 23 is a punishing walk up a very steep hill but is well worth it for the view and isolation.

A beautiful retreat - very comfortable, great views from the all accommodations, wonderful food, excellent swimming pool and separate private spa, knowledgeable guides, everything delightful except for the seasonal south easterly wind. This makes the temperature most pleasant, but makes boating to the Barrier Reef questionable.

Room Tip: All rooms have outlook to the water, ceiling fans, verandas with daybed and views. All rooms have refrigerators well stocked, excellent bathrooms and beach towels supplied. A laundry with washing machines and clothes dryers is easily accessible and user friendly.

Your first impression when you begin the trip to The Bloomfield Lodge is that you are going on an adventure. Starting at the small Hinterland Aviation hanger, you embark on an amazingly scenic flight in a 12-seater Cessna passing over the Great Barrier Reef. The pilots are all very skilled and do their best to ensure beautiful views of the different reefs down below. Upon arriving at Mt Louis Airport (it's more of a strip of grass in the middle of the bush!) you are greeted by real life Crocodile Dundee's and take a short drive in their stylish white SUV's to the Bloomfield River. At the river you board the small boat for another wonderfully scenic ride to the Bloomfield Lodge. Upon making your way around the river to Weary Bay you can just make out the jetty which signals you are finally there! It is possibly the coolest hotel transfer you could ever experience. You can just about make out a building or two behind the trees on arrival and you know you are in for a treat.
When you arrive at Bloomfield you are greeted by the two managers (and husband and wife,) Ben and Courtenay. Ben is on a tractor and helps tow your boat onto dry land while Courtenay is there to greet you with a great big smile on her face. You want for nothing as they give you a nice drink upon arrival and I went for the gin and tonic even though it was 11am, I was now on Bloomfield time! You truly feel special upon arrival and you are, as there is a limited amount of rooms, every guest is truly valued at this special place.Everything about the Bloomfield Lodge has comfort written all over it. From the nice warm wood colouring of the dining/pool/bar area to the individual lodges, it is extremely well maintained. The rooms all have a fresh exotic scent to them upon entering and all have a lovely little teddy bear and beautiful flowers waiting for you on the bed. Word of advice, tell your girlfriend or wife you had called in advance to have this specially done for them! You definitely feel at home because unlike standard hotels, each lodge is more or less on its own save for a few of the lead-in room types, but even they have a sense of remoteness you will struggle to find elsewhere. With amazingly comfortable beds and wonderful balconies with sea views, it is very easy to leave the modern world behind and finally just relax.I was fortunate enough to stay in the Bloomfield Suite which was epically amazing and although the price is at a premium, you will leave realising that it was worth every penny. You have to realise that you are getting a scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef, a river cruise, all your meals which I guarantee will be some of the best you have ever had, and amazing rooms which are all individually designed. Also, definitely take advantage of the river cruise where crocodiles lurk everywhere and a rainforest walk by some of the most knowledgable guides I have ever encountered. In this day and age, it is near impossible to truly get away from it all without even a mobile signal, and to do it in luxury at that is where Bloomfield stands head and shoulders above the rest. The service is some of the best I have ever experienced. There are really 3 facets to it. The first is the kitchen and maintenance staff. The food is served quickly and promptly and although it is a set menu, if you have any dietary restrictions they will ensure you are looked after. The second are the real life Crocodile Dundee's I had talked about earlier. They take you out on the river and in the rainforest and know every plant and its medicinal purposes, every spot where crocodiles like to hang out, and always have a funny little story to keep you at ease. The third facet are the managers, Ben and Courtenay, who ensure that your stay is perfect and accommodate any need that you may have.My tip to others taking the same trip would be just to relax and embrace the whole experience. It really is a wonderful thing to just let yourself go without the outside world and just relax. When the tide goes out, take a walk where the water used to be as a whole different ecosystem comes to life. The best thing in the world to do is grab a rod, some bait, and a bucket of cold beers and head down to the jetty at night when the tide comes back in. Gary will be out there to help you if you have forgotten how to fish (which I absolutely did!) It is great because all the little fish are feeding by the mangroves and the big fish come in the evening to eat them. Good luck catching anything from baby hammerhead sharks to the mighty Barramundi! My last tidbit has everything to do with the BBQ they do. Chef Bianca cooks up fillet steaks, chicken, and sausages just they way you like them. There is also bay bugs, gigantic tasty prawns, crayfish, and the best mussels I have ever had. Basically, if you can't eat anymore, keep eating! I am home right now wishing I would have ate more because I probably will not have anything like that ever again! All in all, the Bloomfield Lodge is a place unique unto itself and a wonderful experience for anything you are looking for in life whether it be adventure, great food, relaxation and anything else you can think of.

Room Tip: Take advantage of all the little day trips - rainforest walk, crocodile boat cruise, low tide walk - as they are very cool and informative. Also, although it is pricey, upgrade to the Queenslander or Hideaway retreat is possible, it seems like a lot of money at the time but honestly well worth it.

Myself & my girlfriend stayed for 4 nights in March 2013, all the staff can't do enough for you and made our stay very special! The place is just amazing 4 days wasn't enough, the reef trip they do is well worth the money, it's a more personnel trip than u you will find from Cairns or portdouglas.
