Dear ahersko
Great to see our Singaporean neighbours exploring Fraser Island and we hope you enjoy the rest of your Australian adventure. On behalf of our villa owners and the team, thanks for your feedback re your stay. As some readers will be aware, we have a small general store at the resort (there is also another at Eurong Beach Resort). There is also a small IGA supermarket at River Heads (30 seconds walk from our Mainland Reception and near the ferry departure point) for guests who are staying in our self-contained villas. Nearby Hervey Bay also has supermarkets for guests who want to bring their own provisions - please check our website (under resort information) for additional information on weight requirements.

Fabulous location, great variety of restaurants and bars. Seabelle restaurant was outstanding. Rooms were neat and tidy- not particularly soundproof and did not block out much light in the mornings. Fraser Island beauty spots tour was fantastic, one of the best we have been on. Would recommend.

Dear Katespr83
We're particularly proud of our touring team and the job they have been doing in unseasonally dry conditions in the national park over the past six months or so, so thank you for singling them and our Seabelle Restaurant team out in this review. Your feedback is appreciated, thank you.

We had four nights at Kingfisher Bay Resort with our two adult children in a villa. I cannot fault any part of our stay. We had such a fabulous time. Check in was professional and friendly, our villa was really lovely and everything you wanted, we had taken some food with us and we found the kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The villa was quiet, clean and very comfortable. The resort pools are lovely they have two pools back to back one is a little quieter than the other so we tended to sun bake around that one. I loved the different options for food and drink as they have catered for every budget and occasion, from a casual hotel atmosphere, or a buffet right up to a la carte. We had the buffet which was great and went to the Sand Bar (hotel) and the food was great, plenty of choices and delicious. If these don't suit then there is a cafe with sandwiches and pastries and a small store with a bit of everything available or you can bring anything you want across on the barge. From check in to check out all of the staff we encountered were fantastic, friendly and very engaging. We had a lovely four days filled with fun and laughs, whether it's as a base for exploring Fraser Island or for a peaceful break I would recommend Kingfisher Bay Resort.

Right from checking in, our experience at Kingfisher Bay Resort was excellent. It is a wonderful Eco-friendly atmosphere and accommodates for all ages. The pool by the main complex was great for the kids (and us). We stayed in a 2 bed villa and were very impressed with how 'self-contained' they were.

Room Tip: If you are a family, try the 2 bed villas ... The villas that start in the 700's are very close...
