As seasoned visitors to Far North Queensland and Port Douglas, we've felt a bit bored when trying to choose accommodation the last few times we visited, so we went looking for something a bit different...and discovered Mai Tai. Located a short 10 minute drive beyond Port Douglas and up above the cane fields in the hills outside of Mosman, this... More

Thank you Andre and Anthony, for another perfect holiday at your awesome Balinese inspired resort, in that serene Daintree ridge-top setting. We were very sad when our 14 days break came to a close yesterday. Already we miss those great views out over the fields towards the sea, wonderful breakfasts, chatting to you and other guests, lazy days by the... More

Could not get any better. Every time we went into Port Douglas we realised what a smart decision it was to stay at Mai Tai Resort. Fantastic location, Fantastic Views and Fantastic friendly hosts. Enjoyed everything about the Mai Tai and look forward to returning.

If you like tropical retreats, here it is. This lush oasis is decorated in a Balinese/Asian style and feels as though you have been transported to Bali. Andre and Anthony were the most gracious hosts and were very attentive to our every need. We felt pampered. My daughter and I had been traveling around the area...I hurt my leg and... More

I am a nervous traveller because I traveller frequently and I have this intense need to have a great experience (fear of missing out I think), so when I heard Mai Tai was about 15 min from Port Douglas I was a little worried but I soon discovered that the decision to stay here was a stroke of genius. It's... More

Mai Tai is everything it claims to be on its website. This is a recently constructed building with all amenities, but tastefully decorated and furnished in Balinese style. Sleep with tropical nets in a lovely comfy bed. Sit on a large comfy settee and watch TV or DVDs. Enjoy sitting outside and seeing the view of the coastal plain and... More

We stayed at the Mai Tai resort for four nights and it was lovely. We were welcomed by Andre, a very nice host who knows a lot about the area and gave us some great tips. The breakfast every morning was very nice although we missed the eggs. For dinner you can go to port Douglas, a 20 minute drive... More

Hosts were unbelievably accommodating in every way, tailoring their hospitality and service provisions to exceed our expectations. A pure hidden gem nestled up in the mountains far enough away to get you out of the general tourist hustle and bustle but close enough to participate in any of the numerous activities available. Hassle free, good price package and luxury accommodation... More

Andre and Anthony were fantastic hosts, and had lots of great recommendations for both site seeing and eating out. Would highly recommend staying at Mai Tai for a relaxing break! Exploring the Daintree and doing a boat tour of the barrier reef are a must in Port Douglas!
