Though it lacks the city hustle and bustle of Cairns, Port Douglas is nevertheless a busy place. Rather than stay in town we spent 3 nights at Mai Tai and enjoyed blissful quiet and an amazing view of the coast. Sitting on the patio, hearing the birds and watching the sun come up is a special experience. We highly recommend Mai Tai for that alone. Andre and Anthony are great hosts who see to your needs and provide a great breakfast every morning . Mai Tai is far enough to be away from the crowds, but close enough to take in the activities of Port Douglas (15 minute drive).

Room tip: Extraordinary view from the patio and serene quiet
Date of stay: September 2019

We had a lovely break at Mai Tai. We loved being out of the hustle of Pt Douglas and up a little with a view. The Balinese decor sets the relaxing atmosphere and there has been a lot of attention to detail. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and bend over backwards to make sure you have a comfortable stay. They were so helpful with information and would help with all sorts of arrangements if you need. You definitely need a car and you are well positioned to head north to Cape Tribulation or out to the reef etc.

Although this was our first time at Mai Tai, it certainly will not be our last.
Located about 15 mins easy drive outside of Port Douglas up in the hills, Mai Tai is surrounded by lush rain forest with a spectacular view out towards the Daintree.

Hosts Andre and Anthony are nothing short of amazing. Very welcoming and accommodating from the moment you arrive, as are their 3 dogs (Cleo, Leon, and Thor) which are just adorable cuddle machines.

The beautiful Balinese decor, wonderful gardens and immaculate and cosy rooms provided a true sanctuary; the perfect place to relax and unwind.

"Beautiful one day, perfect the next"; warm, tranquil and vibrant......and that's just the hosts! The hospitality, conversations and genuine excellence in customer service provided by both Anthony and Andre is second to none. Thank you for allowing my partner and I in having a very memorable week at your beautiful and peaceful resort. Thank you for accommodating and understanding some of our 'special needs'. To all future visitors - do not go anywhere without first consulting Andre.......He is the Master in knowing; where, what, how and why to all the touristic sites and restaurants. This resort is very centrally located to all the popular touristic locations. Cheers.

This was our first stay at Mai Tai, and it will not be our last. The resort is just stunning. The accommodation is perfect and extremely comfortable and clean. We loved the breakfast every morning overlooking what has to be one of the best views in the area. It is the perfect place to stay to explore the Daintree, Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas and Cairns. Jungle Surfing, crocodile river cruises, tropical rainforest walks, the Mossman Gorge and the restaurants are worth visiting. Our hosts Anthony and Andre were simply gorgeous and very knowledgeable about the local area. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, they just looked after us and made us feel so welcome. This was our first holiday away together, and the boys and the resort made it memorable. Thanks guys, we will be back to celebrate another special occasion in the near future. Love Glenn and Danielle
