I discovered the Rose Bay Resort by accident 4 years ago, and have been back for an extended stay every year since. Accommodation ranges from studio units to 2 bedroom apartments, but my personal choice is the fully self-contained 1 bedroom beachfront apartments. They have everything you could want in the kitchen, a washing machine and dryer, a large bathroom... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rose Bay Resort. After the fast pace of Airlie Beach, Bowen is a bit of peace and tranquillity. We emailed the hotel to say we may be arriving after 6pm. Bronnie rang us and then waited for us to arrive. She was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. The location is... More

We were travelling south and found that Airlie Beach was very booked out, and so remembering we had checked Bowen out in the past, we decided to revisit. This resort looked beautiful on the net and it did not disappoint in reality. It had a very relaxing ambiance. the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed, with excellent bathrooms. We... More

We were advised not to bother going to Bowen as 'there's nothing there'. How wrong could they be? Bowen has really beautiful uncrowded beaches, historic buildings (used in the movie 'Australia') and coastal walks with amazing views. The Rose Bay Resort deserves its rating on Tripadvisor. Our apartment was gorgeous, large and had amazing views over the bay. Bronnie and... More

Bowen is a bit of a hidden gem, perhaps its in the shadow of Airlie Beach, which is the gateway to the island resorts, but from my room here in Bowen, I could well be on a tropical island. Rose Bay Resort is perfectly situated on the beach. I still have sand between my toes from a walk on the... More

Lots of people by-pass Bowen, but with secrets like this place it should factor more if you are passing, or looking for pristine beaches and surroundings. Bronie offered us an apartment we liked so much we squeezed in an extra day. She was never too busy to attend to our various requests. The apartment was well equipped, including clean oven... More

Rose Bay Resort is an excellent choice for a relaxing break. The rooms face right onto the beach with amazing views. The apartments are comfortable and a nice size. You can choose to do nothing at all and just enjoy the location or explore other beaches or walking tracks nearby. We have already booked again for next year.

We loved this spot. Stayed 4 nights in both a studio and one bedroom apartment. The latter, with full kitchen is recommended for longer stays. Clean, well presented rooms and exceptional service. The property is an older style but really beautifully looked after. The best bit is the uninterrupted view of the ocean, fantastic swimming beach and good walking tracks... More

We were trying to find a place north of busy Airlie to spend a few days to relax after week in Sydney. We found this place through trip advisor and what a great place.. Room opens out right onto the beach.... And what a beach.. Golden sand surrounded by coconut palm trees.... Don't get that view from where we come... More

we enjoyed a week in a well appointed apartment with bay views you dream about. the never ending views were continuous and pleasant. there's plenty of beach walking to do and the place is ideal for a quiet rest. the beds are comfortable, the apartment is clean and comfortable. the managers are friendly and helpful.
