Went for the larger room @$190 a night. So not exactly cheap for a country town but it has a great view. Plenty of room to spread out, clean and comfortable. No bar in the resort so you need to go into town. Wifi worked. Nice views from the front of the hotel. Would go back again.

What a beautiful place for a relaxing holiday. The accommodation is fantastic and the view is amazing straight across the carol sea. We booked for 1 week and came back for an extra three days it was so good. Bronnie and Paul were very helpful and lovely people. Can't wait to go back for another holiday.

GREAT VALUE ON THE WHITSUNDAY COAST. Rose Bay Resort is excellent value providing comfortable, clean accommodation in a world class location that is a little off the beaten track. After a long drive from Yeppoon we were blown away when we drove down the quiet street to Rose Bay Resort and found a secret little paradise in our home state.... More

Rose Bay Resort is located on the secluded coastline of Bowen with terrific views of Gloucester Island and the ocean. The bay's rock formations along the shoreline provide protection from 'blowin Bowen'.Relaxing in the sun is simply dreamy. The units are large, clean and very cosy. Their location makes for a quiet stay with little to no traffic noise at... More

Had a great weekend in Bowen. Excellent location. Rose bay is beautiful, not far from woolworths as well. The place had all the amenities needed and the staff was very friendly and accommodating! There is an amazing hiking trail that starts just 100m from the entrance.

Thanks Adam. Yes it is a fantastic walk from Rose Bay Resort up over the hills to Horseshoe Bay. Excellent views of the ocean. Great in winter time as often you will see whales in the bay. Thanks for this review. Cheers Paul More

From the moment we walked into the Second Floor Apartment we had been allocated it felt like you could stay forever. The view of sunrise over the bay from the veranda that stretched along the whole front of the apartment (also from the bed) could take your breath away. Then you just walked across the green verge in front of... More

We spent two nights at Rose Bay this past week. We were offered the penthouse (Thanks, Paul and Bronnie!) and the views were spectacular! Hubby, who is a keen amateur photographer, had his fill of spectacular sunrise and sunset shots. The whole stay was excellent and we will come back for sure.

Not only was the room fantastic, the view was spectacular. We wished we had booked for a longer stay, it was so peaceful and relaxing.
