This mountain retreat was a little piece of paradise, ensconced by rainforrest ,with views of the surrounding ranges and distant ocean, far from the madding crowd. It is run by 2 friendly, welcoming and funny gentlemen, Anthony and Andre, who helped make our visit that little bit more special. Rooms are very comfortable and well equiped with a private courtyard.Breakfast... More

There is a reason that the Mai Tai Resort features so highly on TripAdvisor. It's just perfect. I've been meaning to write this review for a while but it's always hard to find the words for a place that works so well. I stayed here in December last year with other family members to celebrate 3 birthdays. In our area... More

the resort is tucked away on Mt Molloy Road about 13ks from Port Douglas. it is beautiful. the men Anthony & Andre’ are friendly and very well networked. their property has this traditional Thai decor infused with modern luxury and the view from the property is absolutely stunning. the music from the chimes reminds you of the Thai temples.
