Sanctuary Palm Cove
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We had four nights here in early May 2013 and would highly recommend Sanctuary. The reception staff were helpful and friendly and our apartment was modern, well appointed, very clean, and situated near the large 25 m pool. Lovely surroundings with many trees and a large attractive pond in the grounds.

It is just a very short walk to the beautiful beach and the start of the main strip of restaurants along the beachfront.

Stayed in apartment 23, seconds from the fantastic and often empty pool. Very calm and relaxing. Apartment was very well equipped, it was nice to stay somewhere when fully equipped kitchen means exactly that. We'll certainly be back.

I have just spent a week at Sanctuary in the studio apartment 23. The name is so apt. The moment you arrive you can feel yourself unwinding from the stress of the city you left a few hours ago. The studio is next to the 25 metre pool so 2secs and you are swimming! The apartment is very comfortable and very stylish . The studio adjoins the main apartment where my friends where staying. Again it is so stylish and very 5 star. Fabulous well equipped kitchen. A large table on the terrace seats 10 so entertaining friends is a breeze! The surrounds are stunning, a lagoon filled with water lilies with a fountain that goes during the day. The large gardens are filled with wonderful tropical plants. The beach is 50 metres away along with fabulous cafes, restaurants and shops. I didn't want to leave and am now planning my next visit! This is a true Sanctuary ! Peace and quiet from within the gated and secure small apartment block and only minutes away from the action.

Room Tip: Loved the ground level Apartment 23 next to pool

We were fortunate to have a week in luxury at this 5 star resort. This is a small resort of apartments in a magnificent rainforest setting with a lagoon of water lilies and birds. It has a 25 m pool as well for laps or relaxation in a beautiful setting. It was quiet and the apartment had everything you could want- top quality furnishings and fittings. It has aircon or open the windows, turn on the fans and enjoy the breezes.

It is 2 mins from the magnificent Palm Cove beach and restaurants. It s such a friendly place and a gorgeous beach with palm trees and shade. The melaleuca trees on the Main Street are magnificent. We had a picnic dinner on the tables under the palms many nights. Paradise as the sun set with a cool sea breeze.

Palm Cove has great quality accommodation and resorts but this is such a special place- small and quiet. The staff were so helpful and our stay was fantastic. They have different size apartments to meet everyone's needs.

Importantly the bed was so comfortable. A great place to recharge and relax. It was a sanctuary!

Room Tip: Call and discuss your needs with reception. They will look after you so well.

We came to Cairns for the Eclipse. The reviews we had read beforehand of the outstanding accommodation are fully justified.
There is no need to repeat everything said elsewhere but we fully enjoyed our time here.
The one blip was nothing to do with the hotel but the very poor service we found from the Airport Connections Shuttle.

Room Tip: All seem excellent

We have just spent 4 nights at this wonderful resort with our 3 adult children, our son in law and 10 month old grandson. Our 3 bedroom unit was huge and very well equipped and there was plenty of room for all of us. There was even glad wrap and salt and pepper supplied. There is a king bed in both the main bedroom and the 2nd bedroom. The grounds are beautiful and the pool fantastic. They also have hire cars available onsite if required. I note some people have complained about noise, we didnt hear any noise from other guests but do apologise for any noise we made as our Grandson has learnt to scream at the top of his lungs and woke early every morning. Would strongly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We had unit 20 which has very cofy beds, great furniture and very well equipped
