We started our honeymoon with 5 nights at Paradise Bay. It was fantastic. We really can't speak highly enough of the resort, the staff, the food and the location. The staff were incredibly friendly and very welcoming and they did everything they possibly could to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. We can honestly recommend this place to even the... More

It is difficult to find the right words to explain the beautiful setting of this place, the quality of the accommodation, the quality of food and the most wonderful service. This was our second visit to Paradise Bay, having previously been there 3 years ago. We enjoyed it even more this time, if that's even possible. Sophie, Todd and the... More

When leaving Paradise Bay this morning on our helicopter, I understood why people say they leave with tears in their eyes!! I had a perfect 3 night stay, with birthday celebration included, and it could not have been any better. It is hard to say what we enjoyed the most - Sophie's cocktails, Todd's fantastic food, Carly's amazing massages or... More

THE best holiday I've ever had! Not only was it sunny, peaceful and literally paradise with gorgeous views, the Paradise Bay team ( Sophie, Todd, Brooke & Ryan ) made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Pampered from the minute we landed, they catered to our every need and if we asked for a particular beverage one day... More

The helicopter, literally, dropped us into Paradise! Someone had stopped the world & let us off...this was the life! We were greeted by relaxed hosts dressed in the colour of white silica sand, With a warm welcome, cold bubbly and fresh fruit platter on hand! Our comfortable bungalow almost screamed “Well..how-do-you-do?” As the Coral Sea lapped hypnotically just meters away...”Oh...did... More

We spent 3 nights at Paradise Bay and they were 3 of the best vacation days we have ever experienced. Paradise Bay provided the opportunity to actually relax on a vacation, which doesn't always happen on vacations. This secluded treasure really allowed for one to let go of all cares and truly be in the moment and take in the... More

We spent four nights at Paradise Bay and had an amazing time we would highly recommend this resort to our friends and family. The Resort is laid out beautifully, overlooking the water. There was plenty of space in our rooms and we did not feel cramped. The food was out of this world, we loved every meal we ate. We... More
