“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

The most beautiful resort you can imagine. Each room with huge soaking tub with whirlpool Fabulous lagoon pool which winds its way thru the entire resort. Restful atmosphere in the most luxurious surroundings.Breakfasts are in the lovely dining room, some tables overlooking the lagoon pool. Service is excellent. And the town of Port Douglas, a short jitney ride away, is quaint. And you are near the world heritage site of the Great Barrier Reef.

Room Tip: All rooms are terrific. Choose one close to reception to cut down on walking to and fro

What a review! Thank you for taking the time to provide a review on your recent stay at the Resort. We are so glad you had a 'fabulous' holiday.

It sounds as though you got to experience all of our best features which is definitely the way to holiday in Port Douglas.

The Port Douglas Shuttle Bus does make it a quick and easy trip into town to explore the cafes, restaurants and boutique shops - great tip!

We hope to see you back at the Resort soon.

Beautiful looking hotel. Apartment on top floor stunning. We did have a few problems with the cleaning staff, and our hob stopped working but the hotel were very helpful in sorting this out. Food in the main restaurant was good. Reception staff especially helpful. Shame about the weather. We had hired a car for the week and you will need one to get around.

Room Tip: The apartment on the top floors have fantastic views

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us. We are glad that you really enjoyed your time in Port Douglas in one of our Penthouse Apartments.

We appreciate that you alerted us to your cook top and cleaning issues during your stay allowing us to rectify both.

That is a great tip about hiring a car - it really does make it easier to explore all the amazing attractions that Tropical North Queensland has to offer.

We look forward to your return to the Resort in the future.

This was our second trip to Port Douglas - we loved it so much last time, we wanted to return for our honeymoon. After researching different hotels & resorts, we decided to stay at the Sea Temple and were not disappointed!! We were kindly upgraded to a penthouse suite with a jacuzzi which was awesome but unfortunately our air-conditioning unit malfunctioned. The staff were immediately onto it and kindly upgraded us again to a villa, which was amazing! The beautiful atmosphere, food and staff meant we had an unforgettable stay. We will definitely be returning next year, I would highly recommend this beautiful resort to everyone!

We stayed for three nights for the beginning of our honeymoon. The staff were really lovely & helpful and the rooms were nice and clean. We only wished we had of booked an apartment so we could have had direct access to the gorgeous lagoon pool. Next time for sure!

This resort has various sized units. We had a one room unit. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. The room is tiled, rather than carpeted, and nicely decorated. Small table with 2 chairs.

Bathroom: Brightly lit. Huge whirlpool tub. The toilet and shower are behind separate opaque glass doors. There are two sinks. Separation of the toilet, shower, and vanity areas made it easier for two people to get ready in the morning.

Amenities: Refrigerator, iron, iron board, safe. No desk. Patio with table and chairs.

Agua restaurant: Nice selection of hot and cold items for breakfast. Dinners were not extraordinary.

This property is footsteps away from the beach and has a large pool that winds through the property. The shuttle to town is expensive but stops regularly by the resort for pick-up and drop-off.

Our only complaint was a noisy neighbor who turned his music up loud and banged on our door just to annoy us. When we complained, management suggested we talk to the neighbor but hoping to avoid a confrontation, we declined. Twice, management had to talk to these inconsiderate neighbors.

If this review was helpful, please check "Yes."

My husband and I came to stay at the Sea Temple Resort for a wedding. Upon arriving the staff were very friendly and personally drove us in the little buggy around to our room. We were staying in a Hotel Spa room, which was very nice and had a lovely big bathroom and view over the pool. Our friends had a two storey villa, which was AMAZING!!! The rooms were very nice - but try and get one that overlooks the pool. The resort itself is beautiful, very clean and was relatively quiet when we were there...very kid friendly as well. The buffet breakfast was ok, we recieved a discount as we were part of the wedding party, so only had to pay $20 rather then the normal $35 pp (which I think is far too overpriced) especially as it doesn't include espresso coffee (we had to pay extra for a latte). The pool bar is a nice touch, however a little overpriced and one day it wasn't even open. Pt Douglas main street is about a 7 minute drive away - the resort does have a shuttle bus that comes every 30 minutes, which was great to get back and forth for dinner etc; so you dont feel stuck in the resort the whole time. Overall we had a pleasant stay at the Sea temple. Only downfall would be their housekeeping staff, who often rushed and one day didn't restock any ammenities (no toilet paper, shampoo, soap etc;) I had to call reception to get some brought up to me. I would stay here again.

We hope you had as much fun at the wedding reception as you did staying at the Resort! Thank you for your lovely review on your time spent in Port Douglas.

We are pleased that you think we are 'a little piece of paradise' as we think so too!

That's a great tip about the Port Douglas Shuttle Bus - it is a very quick and easy way to explore the Port Douglas area.

We appreciate and value your feedback on the pricing of the buffet breakfast and Pool Bar refreshments. We are disappointed to hear that your daily service was not completed satisfactorily but we're glad that our Reception staff were able to rectify the issue promptly.

We look forward to greeting you the next time you stay with us.
