“Full Condo with outside roof patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a beautiful property and we were updated to a full condo, two bedrooms, full kitchen, washer, dryer, dining and living room, outside patio and a roof patio with jacuzzi and outside grill. Many of the condos are on the pool, but ours faced the golf course with a road in between. Not much traffic and very quiet. We spent one afternoon in the pool and learned that many of the condos are privately owned and rented out when owners are not using them. The hotel is out a ways from the downtown of Port Douglas, but there is a shuttle bus ($5.00) that takes you into town. Regular schedule and easy to do. One night we cooked our dinner on the roof patio and watched the flying foxes (fruit bats) flying out to feed. It was a spectacular sight.

Room Tip: If you choose a condo on the pool, although really convenient if you like to bathe or take the sun n...

We stayed here 4 nights during the Aussie summer. Essentially every available amenity, BUT you have to pay $49 for 7 days of wireless service. Sooner or later, Australia will catch on to the fact that free wireless is essential to the traveler. The pool is huge, and is accessible directly from many rooms. Drinks and food are pricey. The service is superb, as it should be for a high end property.

I thought the Hotel and location were amazing. Very disappointed with the gym both in size and equipment. It was very expensive but also very nice. The staff were very friendly. The rooms were amazing. Port Douglas is beautiful and the pool area and the design was really nice. Some more areas for sun beds would have been nice as we had a penthouse room and couldn't use the ones outside the pool side rooms and the other ones were all taken for the whole day. People getting there early and then leaving a owel on the chairs. The upstairs rooftop bbq area with spa was great too.

Overrated. We travelled as a couple for a week of relaxation. We were under the misunderstanding that this was some type of luxury resort. Our studio apartment (anything larger was superfluous to our needs) had no internal furniture nor stereo. The room service menu (Asian platter) was straight out of Coles deep freeze and our room was not serviced on the first day. Based on the quality of the room service menu, we didn't risk it in the resort restaurant. The staff were pleasant enough although obviously under-resourced. Port Douglas itself seemed to be in some sort of decay. Most of the restaurants seem to be hung up on Asian fusion and the better ones didn't open during the day. If you're used to city quality, there's nothing to look forward to here.

Room Tip: The better rooms seem to be 2 and 3 bedroom suites which are better suited for families. We took wha...

Wow! Received consistent excellent service throughout our stay:) We have stayed in other hotels where as soon as you check in at the reception the service goes down hill.
They even allowed us early check-in & upgraded us to a penthouse!!! It was a pleasant surprise given it was also our 10 year wedding anniversary & we travelled with our daughter.

We spent a family holiday at the Sea temple resort for 5 days from 22 Jan 2013. We were also hoping to take a trip from resort to visit the Great Barrier Reef.
We flew to Cairns, & took a coach transfer and after about an hour arrived at Sea temple, occupying 1 bedroom with en suite facilities and another 2 bedrooms apartment.
Apartments were clean, with air con, fans, use of a BBQ & spa & well equiped with cooking facilities at the 2 bedrooms. But as it was the rainy season, we encountered the dreaded mosquitoes. There is a beach nearby but because of storms did not make use of it. Beware of stingers! There were also "rumours' of crocs around!
Can't complain about resort, set in lovey setting with large lagoon swimming pool and children pools. The downside was the transport ( by mini buses) to Port Douglas; charging $A 5 per person per trip. If there are more than 4 of you, best take a taxi, or better still hire a car, and drive from Cairns to resort.
We were unfortunate as we were unable to go on cruise to see the Reef, as we encountered Cyclone Oswald and its tropical aftermath.
There are many charters form different companies to see the Reef. The locals we met mostly have differing views as to which charters were better operators eg. Sailaway, Wavelength, Quicksilver etc. Unable to advise as we did not make the trip.
Port Douglas has some good restaurants, so best advice is to try a few. There is a Coles supermaket also in town where you can shop is you are self catering.
Be warned prices are not cheap, as cost of living has risen in Australia.

Room Tip: Thre are rooms that overlook the pool or if you want a bit more privacy ask for apartments overlokin...

We had just gotten off our cruise on the Crystal Cruise line in Brisbane and flew to Cairns. Had a lovely drive along the Coral Sea to Port Douglas about one hour from the airport. It reminded me of the Amalfi Coast with its winding roads and beautiful scenery. We arrived at the Sea Temple Resport and Spa and were greeted by a very friendly staff member. All the staff was wonderful and helpful when we arrived. The opened air lobby had a beautiful view of the very large pool area. We were driven by golf cart to our room. My travel agent said she got us a penthouse suite, but when we got into our apartment (which is almost that same size as our apartment in the states) we were astounded by how spacious and beautiful is was. It is decorated very tastefully with all you could want. Washer dryer, dishwasher, large refrigerator, microwave. We could easily have stayed for months. Not only were the rooms nice, but the verandah was spacious also with a couch, 2 chairs and a table. Then I noticed a spiral staircase outside and it led to an upstairs that had a hot tub, barbecue grill and table and chairs. We wanted to move right in. We were on the second floor and the first floor rooms have access to the lazy river pool right outside their verandah. There was no direct access from our room to the lobby. You could walk but it was pretty hot, so you just call the front desk and they come with the golf cart to pick you up. The staff also helped with setting up tours and gave us some restaurant tips. Too bad we were only there for 3 days. We didn't get to see everything we wanted. Took a shuttle to town one night but it was around 6 and all the stores were closed, which I thought was strange as it is a resort town. Then I was told it is off season, but we did happen upon a great restaurant called Nautilis which had a long access to the main area but once you get there you think you just entered a tropical jungle. Beautiful and very romantic. January is a tricky time of year there, it's hot but it can also be very rainy. We were lucky that the weather was great when we went to the Great Barrier Reef, but on our last day it rained all day. All in all it was a very nice way to end our fabulous cruise and stay in Australia. We just loved the country and the people.

Room Tip: Any room is great. There are villas on the out skirts of the hotel, but we were told they had their...
