“CAN'T WAIT to go back to P/COVE especially the SARAYI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

My partner and I enjoyed eleven fantastic days in Palm Cove and loved every minute of it.

I would like to thank Vanessa and her very helpful staff at the Sarayi for accommodating our every request. It was a pleasure staying with people that take a genuine interest in customer service. As for the Sarayi building, it's great ... look at the pictures on their website ... you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work it out ;)

Location is central, rates are more than fair, the roof top pool is heaven and the Rising Sun & the Pantry downstairs only add to the complex’s appeal.

We are definitely going back to Palm Cove (as early as next month ... September at the latest) and will make the Sarayi our first choice for accommodation. We felt completely at home in Sarayi’s Ocean View Apartment 323 that I hereby formally register my interest in purchasing an apartment within the complex; in the event that the owner/s ever consider a strata subdivision of the building in future.

What more can I say, other than: thanks again, the pleasure was all ours, see you soon.

Joe & Pina

Room Tip: For 3-4 + days I would recommend Sarayi appartment

The renovation has made this place a must stay for anyone, very clean and well looked after,
rooftop pool fantastic walk out & the beach is there right in front of the Hotel, wow what a place.
Only there 3 nights but felt very welcome by all staff ( Hayley & Pauline ) they went to great lengths to ensure our stay was the best & nothing was a problem. I would highly recommend the Sarayi Hotel to anyone going to Palm Cove. We will be back soon.

Having only recently arrived in Australia, I booked a last minute break over Easter to Palm Cove and chose Sarayi. From the pick up at the airport, the location, the room with fantastic flat screen tv to all the friendly staff, I could not have picked a better option! They organised a trip to the Great Barrier Reef which was also fantastic. The rooms have been refurbished and are spacious and smart. You are steps away from the beach and close to all the restaurants. There are special arrangements for breakfast with the hotel next door which has a good buffet selection as well as an a la carte menu. Airport transfers are also included. All in all, a place I would recommend and Palm Cove was a lovely spot for a long weekend.

We were recomended by friends to stay here and how right they were.
Palm Cove is a small beach town with many Hotels and accomodation choices along the main street, where the beach runs along one side and accomodation and restaurants run down the other. Sarayi is in the middle of the "strip". It is a smaller hotel around 25 rooms which means you actually get to meet the staff and be treated like a person not a number.
Our experince was fantastic, from the time Hayley picked us up at Cairns airport ( free if you stay for 3 nights or more, a great saving) till the time we were dropped off 4 days later , we found the staff could not do enough for us. The hotel has a range of very spacious rooms. We checked them all out and from the economic alternatives out the back thru to the front rooms overlooking the ocean they were all clean and spacious. The rooms we saw all had open kitchen designs ( eating out is expensive in North Queensland so this is a benefit) and upstairs had seperate bedrooms.
The hotel has been recently renovated and fittings and linen all seem new and fresh.The room and public area's were sparkling...
Restaurant downstairs is independent, an eclectic mix of asian fusion food
and seafood they do not open for breakfast but big selection along the street so this is no problem.
This is a good hotel made better by the attentive and friendly staff. If you want to meet native north Queenslanders and transplants from southern states who will openly discuss the ups and downs of living in a tropical
"paradise" stay at the Sarayi, i know you will not be disapointed we would not hesitate to recomend this hotel to friends and look foward to a return visit.

I spent 4 days in Srarayi for a holiday, which is really a wonderful place to stay. The location is perfect that just opposite the beach. The room is large and all facilities are good and comfortable. The staff are helpful.
Anyway, it is a wonderful hotel, definitely worth its value.
I will choose it if I come to Cairns again. : )

rooms overlooking the beach the best, from here you can easily walk in either direction for great places to eat or for a massage.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the beach the best, 323-326
