We enjoyed our "2 day 1 night" stay on Green Island. The food was exceptional. The beach tremendous. The aquatic wildlife amazing. Green Island Resort has a bit of a split personality. In the morning and at night the resort is quiet and tranquil with fish feeding, free sunset drinks, night discovery walks and great food all organised well exclusively... More

This has been one of the more difficult reviews I have written because the resort is exactly as described but felt it was missing the details/inclusions that one would expect from the price tag. There is no denying the island itself is beautiful and truly did enjoy our 3 nights at the resort. The staff was wonderful, the location is... More

Green Island Resort is absolutely fabulous. The accommodation is high end, luxurious but Eco friendly. The rooms are quiet and private and comfortable. The resort is built into the rainforest and blends in with the landscape. There is limited food choice after 4pm and the restaurant is expensive but the meals are large and give value for money. Breakfast is... More

We recently stayed for a week at Green Island Resort, and we enjoyed great weather and absolutely beautiful food at the Emeralds restaurant. We found a great voucher through Luxury Escapes and it was fantastic value which included a full day out to the Great Barrier reef. This is a fantastic resort, other reviews talk about how the island becomes... More

First off this place is better than any of those paid reef boats, and by a mile! You can simply walk out of your room, walk down the beach and jump in the water to view an underwater safari. With the first 30 mins, I had spotted, turtles, stingrays, black tip reef sharks and plenty of colorful fish. Although food... More

Stayed for just one night and think it was well worth the money! Everything from snorkel hire to beach chair hire to bottom boat tours is free for guests of the resort. When 4.30 comes and all the day visitors leave there are complimentary drinks by the water before going to get dinner. We chose a picnic hamper so we... More

The rooms and facilities were clean and very comfortable. Food at the only restaurant on the island was consistently good although service was slow. Highly recommend room service. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I've been wondering how to review this resort since the first night. It is difficult to describe. This resort is described as an island paradise etc... and it really is. And yet, it somehow misses the mark, while being exactly what it is described as being. There is just no doubt that this is a beautiful experience. The island is... More
