Very hard to share words that have not already been said by previous guests. From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Anthony we new we were going to enjoy our time at Mai Tai. We were ready to relax at the end of a busy year. Our hosts seemed to perceive our need for calm and managed to help us relax and unwind without seeming to do so.
After a couple of days we were ready to explore the wonderful Daintree and hinterland, so Anthony and André helped us to plan our days. Their local knowledge is fantastic, our first big tip - listen to their advice on tours and exploration, they have been in the region for 10 years, and have the taste and experience to give excellent recommendations.
Tip 2 - If you are considering dining in Port Douglas or Mossman, talk to André and Anthony, they did not steer us wrong with our dining plans, phoned ahead for us and ensured we were well received, fed and watered by every restaurant they recommended.
Tip 3 - Take the time to enjoy the location and surrounds at Mai Tai. Breakfast on the patio looking over the hinterland, with the canefields in the mid ground and Coral Sea in the distance is pure relaxation. The wildlife is all around from the hanging nests of the Metalic Starlings to the gecko in our outdoor shower - all part of the environment. The fruit, home made jams, croissants, and fresh coffee all add to the joy of breakfast on the patio.
The genuine Bali decor, privacy of each room, and overall ambiance complete the experience which all adds up to an ultimately relaxing break away from the Port Douglas down town crowds.
We will be back. They deserve their TripAdvisor number one rating.
