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 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.

My wife and I stayed there for two nights, wished it would have been a month :) This place was fantastic along with the hotel staff. Bronwyn and Paul, the mangers couldn't have been more helpful. This place really is a winner, you don't need to go out to the islands.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and we were extremely impressed with the quality of the accommodation, fit out and furnishings. The on site managers were wonderful to deal with making it a great experience. Highly recommend this accommodation in a beautiful bay view apartment.

This was our second family stay and we look forward to many more. Well appointed, clean rooms with invaluable service and advice provided by Paul. This resort is just wonderful for a relaxing break. Lovely beach is right out front but also offers rocks to explore and there are an excellent choice of bush treks with points of history and... More

Spent 3 nights here in a studio apartment. It is situated right on a small sand beach with great views. Despite the resort being busy the room was quiet and the area was peaceful. The room had a comfortable bed with a good-sized shower (no bath). There was both a ceiling fan and air-con. HOWEVER, the cooking facilities were very... More
