“Great place for a wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were married and stayed at kewarra beach resort in march and loved every moment.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful and Guininna, the events co-ordinator, was wonderful in helping with all the wedding details. We could not have planned or asked for a better day.
Hoping to return on our anniversary. Loved it!

I arrived yesterday afternoon and was immediately greeted by a wonderful front desk. Shown my suite which I'm sharing with two others. Its spacious, very clean and has enough room for us all. The restaurant is idilic and the szechuan calamari superb. I look forward to the next five days! I'll report in soon.
I had a cocktail on the beach listening to the live music and watched the locals and their families running around and enjoying themselves. This is what children's memories are made of.

My husband and I got married at kewarra Beach resort 15 years ago when the resort was fairly young in it's journey into weddings. We have been lucky enough to have returned twice more and then again this year, 15 years after our wedding, with our two children. The resort is of a very high standard, the food is perfect everytime, the proximity of the beach is wondeful and the accomodation is amazing. For us long term returnees, a few of the changes were disappointing, however as a new comer you would be none the wiser. You can only be disappointed if you are able to compare to previous visits. Saying that, we adored our stay, met some great new staff ( Carlo, Terence) and saw some lovely old staff (Jane) who were all so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
A suggestion for the restaurant is to include more family friendly alternatives at lunch times, which used to be available.

We arrived to the resort and were greeted with a welcome drink. The staff here is very pleasant and helpful. We found them to be friendly and felt they went above expectations (we received a personal phone call to inform us that the beach bungalow restaurant would be closing early due to a wedding). We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the dinner, grounds and 2 bedroom Bauhinia Suite. We were traveling with 2 teens (boys). Our suite was across from a pond that had an eel living in it! The boys loved this! We saw many wallabies, fox bats and birds (cockatoo's). There was a great band that performed on the beach in front of the beach bungalow one night. Many locals come with their families to enjoy the music, food and drinks. The beach is lovely but we did not swim (water was a bit brown and there was still some concern over stingers). There is a netted swimming area right next door, but again, not very appealing. The two swimming pools were wonderful! The kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks and swimming through the tunnels! We were always the only people at the pool!

We had a lovely stay in one of the lodges in amongst the forest, it was amazing!
Beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful staff.
Location was excellent; beach is on the doorstep and not far from kuranda.
Food so delicious and well varied.

I'm usually pretty good at finding my way around, but it took me more than a full day to learn how to get from the lobby/dining room to our cabin, as some of the signs were hard to find and did not give enough information. We did not relish wandering around lost. We never did succeed in finding a second pool that was on the map of the property.

The cabins themselves are OK but nothing to write home about. The idea of separate cabins out in the forest is interesting, but not very practical for a place where it rains a lot! The lack of a fitness center is another drawback.

We spent 4 wonderful nights here as part of our Australia honeymoon. Though it poured every day that we were there, the staff went out of their way to ensure we had the best experience. We arrived to an upgraded beach front bungalow with an ocean view. The room was spacious and we loved sitting on the porch listening to both the rain forest and the ocean. The restaurant food is delicious, the highlight for us was the pizza beach party our last night. We indulged in a couple's spa day and it was well worth the money. Kudos to Carolynne, Karlos, and staff for ensuring that we had the best stay possible. We plan on returning to see the reef and will definitely pick this resort as our first choice in the Cairns area!
