the view was amazing, the hosts were friendly and informative, breakfast was lovely and the price was very reasonable. The setting made our stay very comfortable, location was near enough to major facilities and far enough away to ge tranquil.

This venue is sublime in every way. From the decor to the vista it is abundantly clear that you have arrived somewhere very special. The hospitality is second to none and we could not speak highly enough of the warmth and joviality of Anthony and Andre. Spend some time enjoying the pool at the end of the day with a... More

Not your average resort: Anthony & Andre offer a very personal, welcoming retreat with stunning decor and views. The four sweet-natured Bernese Mountain dogs are a bonus for dog lovers. The Balinese artifacts and color scheme give the feeling of an art museum, and the setting is spectacular and serene. Breakfast on the terrace is a great way to start... More

We enjoyed our six night stay at the Mai Tai Resort. The comfortable Balinese decor made for a peaceful retreat. A car is definitely needed, and it's easier to bring back take away for the evening meal. Anthony and Andre are very knowledgeable about the area and were very helpful in setting up our tours before we arrived. They also... More

Having a few days off work I headed for Port Douglas. I didn't want to stay in an anodyne hotel complex in town so headed for the hills. Mai Tai is about 15 minutes drive away on the slopes of the Tablelands on the road up to Mount Malloy, so you definitely need a car. A very warm welcome and... More

We spent 5 nights in the Villa which is totally private, luxurious, artistic, impeccably clean and has wondrous views. Our companions were the birds and butterflies, the forest and at night the sky and stars. Anthony and Andre are genuine in their desire to ascertain the type of holiday each guest is seeking and then to unobtrusively facilitate those wishes.... More

Mai Tai is unexpected - think Balinese retreat in the North of Queensland. The Buddhas, hangings and furniture fit seamlessly into their tropical setting - and the four well-behaved mountain dogs just add to the ambience. Hosts Anthony and Andre entertain with a feast of information on the area and stories of their travels. Delicious Continental breakfast included - altogether... More

We just spent 3 nights at Mai Tai & felt like we had a great retreat. Loved the Bali style decorations etc. Had a very enjoyable breakfast every morning, waited on like royalty! Loved the dogs & cats lazing around the place, gave it a relaxed homely feel. Lots of great advice from the boys about all things to do... More

Stayed here as part of my wife's 50th birthday trip. Luxury villa to ourselves nestled at the top of the resort - outdoor plunge pool, sweeping rainforest and sea views - coupled with the perfect hosts (and tropical brekkie). If you're looking for luxury, look no further - possibly the best villa I've stayed in, in Australia. We will return... More
