“Well presented with fantastic pool”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Stayed for 4 nights in a studio room, good size, well designed with a huge spa bath - what you'd expect for the price. Staff were helpful and thought the restaurant was quite good despite being a bit pricey. The best thing about the resort is the pool, it's massive and has enough sun lounges/areas to relax in - and whilst being low-season we received great service by the pool. If you want somewhere right in the heart of Port Douglas town though this probably isn't the place, it's around 5 minutes drive to Macrossan St. Overall very good.

We arrived Monday for one night stay (wish we could have stayed longer). We asked for a quiet studio room as I had read reviews about noise from pool. We arrived about an hour before check in time and we were immediately accommodated. Our room was also upgraded to a king bed (originally had queen) on our request for no extra charge. (My only complaint was that no one replied to my two email requests so that I didnt have to worry what we were getting). We got lovely room, great air conditioning (already cool when we entered), huge two person in room spa, comfortable bed. Drove around to car park outside our unit. Toiletries in bathroom were nice. Robes, slippers, safe provided, parking free and plentiful. Shower grout around bottom could do with scrub but otherwise room was spotless. Mini bar was a bit sparse (no juice, no biscuits to go with tea/coffee). I wish these five star rated places would supply plunger coffee in the rooms as the instant coffee is really tacky. Our room had small patio out back but I wish we had been able to screen it off from the passing walkers as they could look direct into room (we had to pull blinds down). We had lunch at the resort by the pool and both meals were large (chicken caesar salad and fish/salad) and very tasty and fresh. Service was great. Resort was quite quiet it seemed with only about a dozen other groups staying and a few families with small children. Pool looked lovely and if I stayed again, I think I would book a swim-out room. They did offer laundry service, but would have liked the opportunity to do our own laundry as we had travelled a bit. Reception staff very attentive and informative on check in and check out. We had dinner at the resort which was also of high standard. I didnt think prices were any higher than in Cairns for similar quality meals. Breakfast was included and buffet style with lots of good things to choose from. Really impressed with this place and have already recommended to friends and family and look forward to time to return for longer stay.

Sea Temple was the first stop of our honeymoon in Australia during January 2013. My wife and I were very impressed by the excellent service and facilities. The rooms were HUGE and had everything you could need. Washer, dryer, dish washer, multiple bathrooms, double sinks, huge tub - you name it! The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially when we left something in the lobby or were asking about our transfer to our next location. The pool deserves special note, it has a huge front section that is viewable from the lobby, but also weaves around the entire inner ring of the resort for some wonderful swimming.

The only thing that we didn't love was the restaurant, Aqua. The service was poor, the portions were small and the food was overpriced. We were there for almost three hours and saw a server only three times, each time a different server. While the dessert, I must admit, was excellent, overall it was one worst dining experiences of our trip. Don't let this stop you - just take a shuttle to eat at one of the restaurants in Port Douglas.

Overall Sea Temple was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone staying in Port Douglas.

Came here back in August 2008 (had to lie about the date on here) and was so nice. Our room had 2 bedrooms, the master with an ensuite bigger than my bathroom at home, a large open plan kitchen / lounge leading to a small balcony. This is where we found something unexpected, a spiral staircase leading up to a roof terrace complete with a hot tub and bbq. The pool is absolutely massive, so big that it is freezing cold unless it is now heated. In all fairness we did come in winter so in the summer months I bet it is lovely and warm. It's just a short stroll to 4 Mile Beach although the safe zone with the net is all the way up the other end of town. Being out of town wasn't a problem for us as we had a car and there is a bus service running round all the resorts and into town. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Go for one with the hot tub on the roof, so nice for relaxing and also the pool can be freezing.

We came up here for a weekend & we were upgraded to the two bedroom penthouse apartment. It was awesome! A full kitchen, laundry, huge bathroom, 2 large bedrooms & a seperate living area which lead out onto a large balcony. Up the stairs we discovered a HUGE outdoor penthouse area with a jacuzzi, BBQ & outdoor dining table.
Everything was immaculate, new & sparkling, great Air-Con. Our room was private-we were awed by it.
The pool was..WOW! Huge. Best pool I've ever swam in. Loved hanging out by the pool bar drinking delicious cocktails.
Dinner at the restaurant was very nice-but I would recommend Salsa Bar for a truly delicious & special meal.
Service was great-everyone was so friendly!
Only thing that was missing was travel size moisturiser-strange they didn't have it as they even had a little sewing kit.
We will be back-2 nights wasn't enough.

Room Tip: Get a penthouse!

We found the Sea temple Port Douglas very clean, very beautiful, but very overpriced. We paid a lot of money per night only to find that we did not get what we were paying for. We booked a "penthouse suite' but it was very dissapointing, its just a lovely appt with a rooftop area that was mildewy and our spa didnt work. We told reception and it was tough luck till next day when we would be moved to another room in the pouring rain. we may as well of been in a normal room, Along with this to pay so much money for a special apppt we had two king single beds pushed together. Not good enough in my opinion.
Our stay at Sheraton Mirage for the days before was nothing short of perfect and great prices to match.

Only stayed for one night unfortunately, but will definetely be back ! Loved it, especially the pool. As we had pool access, we especially enjoyed swimming to happy hour at the pool bar (with our drinks voucher) and chatting to other guests.
A huge tropical complex, with a very welcoming foyer. Great place for honeymooners and there seemed to be a lot of them, all looking very happy and relaxed.The apartment was well appointed and clean, also quiet, with adequate car parking.

Room Tip: Had an apartment with pool access, what a way to go.
