We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was spacious, clean and very well equipped. A bath and shower! Lovely balcony to watch the waves roll in. The best part was stepping straight onto the beach. Go over to the rocks on the left and swim out about 100m to where the waves break over some rocks. Low tide in... More

I'm a bit reluctant to share this review as we plan to return to Rose Bay Resort next year, and we don't want to find it is booked out! Bowen itself is a sleepy town at this time of year. It does have good services but otherwise not much to speak of. However, Rose Bay Resort is a fabulous self... More

Fabulous spot, a great place to relax and wind down. Crystal clear water, clean beach and great accommodation. Quiet and peaceful. Wonderful and helpful staff. Highly recommend that you book early for the Christmas holiday period.

One of the most beautiful places to stay in Australia, the views, the room, the welcome, the atmosphere, the manager on site were all brilliant. I want to tell the world how amazing Rose Bay Resort is

Beautiful outlook, good location. Room neat & tidy with everything needed to experience a pleasant stay. Quiet surrounds which made for a relaxing time. My husband and I will certainly be back whenever in Bowen.

Stunning views from balcony, watch the sun rise over the secluded, palm fringed beach. Beach access directly from resort. More of an apartment hotel than a resort with cooking facilities in most rooms. Clean, quiet and comfortable accommodation and helpful staff. Reception is unmanned for much of the day, although help is just a quick phone call away. Undercover vehicle... More

Thanks for this feedback. Mother nature certainly makes sure we have the best views from our apartments. Being a small complex, we do not have a full time person siting in the office, as we have to multitask and clean and do maintenance as well as man the office. We have a remote phone we carry with us at all... More

We booked two apartments over the long weekend. The apartments are lovely, view spectacular and facilities good. Management are very friendly. This resort is right on the beachfront, I would recommend the penthouse apartment.

I have stayed at Rose Bay Resort several times over the past couple of years and in fact, it would be the only place I would stay in Bowen. Each of the rooms at the resort has it's own ocean view, regardless if you are on the first floor or the third floor. The rooms are clean and tidy and... More

I stayed at rose bay resort in September 2015 as I revived a hot tip from family. This was one of the only times I have agreed with family, this place was amazing. The resort almost had a private beach only shared by a residential house and a couple of appartments. The room I was in was on the first... More

From the quiet beachfront location, spacious rooms and incredible views, this place really cemented our lovely but too short stsy in Bowen as being highly memorable. Would recommend requesting a ground level room for those with little kids. Make sure to do the Mount Edgecombe walk to Horseshoe Bay if fitness levels are okay.
