Palm Bungalows are centrally located - it's a part of the Resort Complex and it's a short walk to the resort facilities and also a short walk to the Marina area. Airport transfers to and from the airport are included (come out of the airport, take a left and there is a hotel desk there to help you transferring to... More

Palm Bungalows offers around 60 botique bungalows in the middle of Hamilton Island resort. The rooms have recently been refurbished and are fitted to a high standard. However, the living space is small (there is no where to eat inside the bungalow except on the couch or in bed). The price is excessive for what you get, but I guess... More

We stayed seven nights in bungalow 5. The accommodation is nicely renovated, well maintained and serviced, and a great size. Think twice about sharing with two children as you only have one bathroom and toilet and very limited storage. A cupboard in the bathroom would be fantastic - toiletries all over the vanity is messy. The bed was exceptionally comfortable... More

Heavenly place. The small plane ride in and landing on the water was exquisite and exciting. The visit was pure heaven. The boat ride and scuba diving was a jewel. The white sand beach and private helicopter ride awesome.

So obviously when we got off the plane I was so ready to get to the bungalow and have a relaxing snooze. I opened the doors to the bungalow and pushed the curtains aside to find a shockingly small area that I had to spend the next four nights in.....wow. The surrounding was nice I guess. It was surrounded by... More

We stayed 9 nights in Bungalow 29. It was 2 adults & 10&12 year old. The location is perfect - 1 minute walk to resort pool & beach and 5 minute walk to Marina. The bungalows are very quiet and set amongst beautiful gardens. The bungalows are very clean and serviced daily. The bed is very comfortable. There is a... More

What beautiful and spacious accommodation. It was just magical to lie in the hammock and relax in a breathtaking tropical setting! Excellent for couples. We were impressed with the information given by the friendly staff about access to partnering resort facilities.

The bungalows are very modern and just great to stay in -you get 3 restaurants to chose from for breakfast only go to the wildlife one if not hungry! The other two are great ! Rent a golf cart and do an island trip one day is enough. There are several great restaurants for dinner.

I booked palm bungalows for a 4 night stay based on Tripadvisor reviews, and our bungalow which was in the row 25-38 (ish) appeared to have been recently renovated with a newly updated bathroom & kitchen area. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning effective and quite. The location was great - just across from the resort centre... More

The room is absolutely amazing! So clean, tidy and comfortable. Bed is very comfortable. The staff is kind and helpful- we asked the reception for extra toiletries and got it in less then 10 minutes. The pool, sauna etc. and water sports are free of charge and shared to all hotels on the Island so whatever hotel you book- you... More
