We arrived in Port Douglas right after a tropical storm so nasty that it closed down many nearby roads. Thus, through no fault of the hotel, our suite seemed dank- once we brought this to their attention, the staff happily upgraded us to a larger one not so affected by the storm.
The concierge arranged a wonderful great barrier reef trip, featuring(starring?) Fluffy the (male) marine biologist, who proudly sported an 80's hairdo(n't?) popularized by bands like <i>Loverboy</i> and <i>REO Speedwagon</i>!
Breakfast was amazing- we discovered local (tropical) fruits (custard apples are to die for!), served in a cafe that felt like the inside of an aquarium!
The suite itself was very comfortable and convenient (incl. a washer/dryer and kitchen!), and was tastefully decorated in a contemporary danish-style, overlooking a beach-like swimming pool complete with white sand and turquoise water!
But the best surprise of all came on the walk back from dinner, when we heard a loud chorus of squawking and looked up to find a parade of rainbow parrots flying wobbily overhead. (If we'd not seen them in Sydney, the "flying foxes" that inhabit the Pepper trees nearby would've seemed almost as cool!)
