My wife and I recently stayed at Mai Tai and thoroughly enjoyed Anthony's hospitality. The facility is located about 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Port Douglas and realistically requires a car hire to get to and from restaurants and activities. Mai Tai is beautifully appointed with Balinese art, the rooms are spacious and the facility has... More

We wanted somewhere special to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and with only a few days free we decided on a long weekend at Mai Tai. We stayed in the Executive villa and the only problem we had was leaving it during the day to do the tours that were part of our package deal. We would really have been... More

My wife and I went to Australia to celebrate our 30th anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The Mai Tai Reort is amazingly set in a tropical paradise offering a spectacular view of the mountains as they reach the coast. Our room was amazing, it was quiet, wonderfully decorated, had a really nice outdoor shower and beautiful view. Andre &... More

We have just enjoyed 14 wonderful days at this awesome, unique, secluded resort - with its stunning picturesque ridgetop location in the Daintree rainforest. It is most rare for us to holiday in the same spot twice, but we so love the Orchid Suite here that this is now our 3rd holiday at this lovely resort. And we look forward... More

My now-husband and I eloped to Port Douglas at the end of April 2014. We treated ourselves to 3 nights at Mai Tai. Anthony and Andre were such gracious hosts. They made us feel welcome and comfortable and they went above and beyond to ensure our stay was memorable. The day of our wedding they surprised us with a bottle... More

A special thanks to the hosts Andre & Anthony for providing us an absolute piece of paradise. We were return guests and this time stayed in the Executive Villa which was beautifully appointed and presented. The attention to detail was second to none, the spacious open plan layout presented us with amazing views over the rainforest valley whilst being very... More

Both Andre & Anthony (including their 4 dogs and 3 cats) were fantastic hosts. We love our room, which was beautifully decorated and even had an outdoor shower which we enjoyed very much. Andre and Anthony were very friendly and made us feel very welcomed there. They provided advise whenever required, on places to visit and restaurants to dine at.... More

After spending 5 days at an apartment in Palm Cove we chose to stay 2 nights at Mai Tai based on TA reviews. After driving past the driveway and having to drive another 5k's before we could turn around safely the first thing that confronts is a rather steep driveway. Suffice to say it is sealed and our little 4cyl... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Beautiful location with fantastic views from the breakfast terrace and from our bedroom terrace. Room was clean and lots of hanging space and hangers! The outdoor shower was amazing. Andre was a very welcoming and friendly host. It is around 15 minutes drive into Port Douglas but nice to be away from hustle and bustle... More
