We recently stayed here for two nights. Booking made online through a web site Having visited Bowen previously but never staying overnight, we were unsure of where best to stay. We were more than happy with our choice of the Rose Bay Resort. Location is fantastic and very secluded. The walking trails adjacent to the resort are amazing with spectacular... More

We had a lovely stay with Rose Bay Resort. The room was clean & comfortable, balcony had a great view of the beach. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Short drive to restaurants, cafe's & more beaches. Plenty of bush walks close by with beautiful views.

Words can not describe how beautiful this place is! Friendly staff, comfortable clean rooms which are value for money!! But oh, the location!!! Wow! Do not book for two nights like we did! Stay the whole week!!!!! But I recommend cooking your own meals in your fully equipped kitchen because Bowens dining options are few and far between!! I love... More

Clean, affordable and friendly people. The view from the room was exceptional, gorgeous sunrise over the beach to watch from balcony. Airlie beach is only about 45 min away but Bowen itself has some shops and cafes.

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...

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
