I admit to being a hotel snob, so wasn't sure about booking such an intimate property. It was, quite simply, awesome. We booked the villa; the villa was private, peaceful, gorgeous and everything that we wanted. We stayed 5 nights and booked the excursions (probably should have skipped one or two - the excursions were excellent, but we were exhausted).... More

We stayed there there 3 nights and had an amazing time. Andre and Anthony were very welcoming and warm, their place is decorated beautifully and you can tell they care very much about it and about their guests. Everything was super clean and tidy, breakfast was great. They were happy to help us with booking attractions and restaurant recommendations (which... More

We were in heaven the moment we arrived at Mai Tai. The views overlooking the Daintree are breathtaking and the resort itself is a tranquil retreat amoungst the natural beauty of tropical north Queensland. The 'Balinese' suite was so authentic, relaxing and comfortable. We couldn't believe our view- we literally felt as though we could walk into the forest. We... More

We stayed at the Mai Tai for 4 nights and were extremely pleased. Anthony and Andre' are absolutely delightful and so helpful with helping us book excursions and making reservations. They were always welcoming, available, responsive and fun to be with. We left feeling like we had made 2 new friends! We stayed in the separate house up in back... More

My wife and I had five happy and laid-back days at MaiTai. Andre and Anthony were friendly, funny and helpful. Andre is like a walking travel guide. The Balinese/Thai decorations and furniture combined with the hill-top view create a tranquil environment. And the cuddly Bernese dogs are like reincarnations of Pooh Bear. Thank you guys, you made us feel like... More

Relaxation being a must for our holiday the Mai Tai Resort in the Port Douglas hinterlands was a rare find. Peace and quiet amidst the spectacular view surrounded by comfortable Thai furnishings. The very helpful and informative hosts Anthony and Andre made our stay filled with the wonderful memories. Their easy-going nature and kindness certainly contributed to the pleasure of... More

The Mai Tai is set in the foot of the rainforest about 15 minutes from Port Douglas and Mossman. As long as you have a car the location is perfect, quiet and secluded but with restaurants and shopping easily accessible. The rooms are large, clean and private, and the outdoor shower (recommended) is lovely. The largely vintage balinese decorations and... More

Mai Tai Resort, nestled in the beautiful forested hinterland of Port Douglas, is a veritable sanctuary located only 10 minutes drive from the madding crowd of the tourist strip in town. The rooms are immaculate, elegantly furnished and replete with some truly inspiring art works and sculptures from Bali and Thailand. The outdoor showers are glorious and the views from... More

My partner and I had been travelling around Australia for seven weeks and our stay at the Mai Tai resort turned out to be one of the low points. As other reviewers have previously mentioned, this hotel is a fair distance from Port Douglas but we were aware of this and had a hire car so not a problem for... More

Mai Tai is a little slice of heaven! From the incredible views and beautiful rooms we felt relaxed, cared for and content. It was also without a doubt the best customer service we have experienced. Thank you Andre and Anthony for making our stay a memorable one. I can't recommend Mai Tai enough. The perfect little getaway!
