Sarayi Boutique Hotel
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Palm Cove
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 12, 2013

My partner and I stayed for 10 nights. We booked a garden studio. It was comfortable and the airconditioner worked well. After 4 nights the receptionist asked us if we wanted an upgrade and moved us to an ocean view apartment for free! It was lovely with the ocean views and I definitely recommend booking this from the start. I didn't think it would be much better so we went with the cheaper option, but I would have been more then happy to pay for the better room as it was lovely! The Sarayi also offer other great little things like a BBQ kit to cook your own barbi upstairs on the rooftop, or a fishing rod if you want to go for a fish down at the pier.
I definitely recommend booking your stay in Palm Cove at the Sarayi. The restaurant at the front of the hotel also offers discounts and the staff are lovely there too!

Room Tip: Ocean View Apartment is amazing! Room is at the back of the apartment so you won't hear any nois...

Hotel was empty when we showed up here so we had our run of the place. Rooms are comfortable with king size bed that is very nice unless you roll over the middle section, as it's just two beds pushed together. Centrally located, right across from the beach so great views and wonderful sunrises. Restaurant is great out front, food is very tasty. It's too bad that the stinger season is almost half of the year but at least there's a netted area just down the beach you can swim in. Clean, fair prices and good service when the attendant is at the desk.

Agree with previous reviews, central location, good value, loved our ocean views. Appreciated having kitchenette, good sized rooms. I recommend enquiring if they have events (weddings etc) planned for roof top area, the noise of this travelled down to our room, esp when the staff were cleaning up afterward. When I contacted reception they asked me to go to roof to ask for noise to cease (which it didnt), felt this was hotels responsibility.

The staff were amazing really went out of their way to make our group welcome! Nothing was too much or it felt that way. Rooms are clean light and fresh. Pool on the roof was a nice escape and deck behind the pool over looked the ocean with a great sea breeze! Plenty of great restaurants around. Thank you Sarayi for a great stay, highly recommend this hotel

We have chosen Sarayi based on the Tripadvisor ratings and guess what? It's was a great choice! This hotel is located just opposite beautiful beach Palm Cove is so well known for, has all the ammenities you need and super friendly and chill out (as it should be in this relaxing town) staff. We have booked our stay in the Garden Room for total of 5 nights and even if I try hard I cannot find a thing we could complain about. Yes, the rooms were basic, but hey, this is Australian "basic", which means king size bed, good sized fridge with free glass carafe to keep your water cold, massive flat screen TV,and patio with table and chairs for you to chill out. Oh and of course, you get beach towels, toiletries and all the usual (tea&coffee etc.) Really, for this location and room sizes their prices are just amazing! The pool on the rooftop is just another bonus. Well done Sarayi, you are a great option to stay in while visiting this friendly town!

I booked this hotel 18 months beforehand as I knew it was going to be a busy time when the eclipse of November 14th 2012 took place. I thought it would be a good location and it looked very nice on the website. I was not disappointed.
My husband and I had just dropped off a campervan in Cairns after a month on the road and, because we had booked 4 nights, the hotel provided free transfers from the rental drop-off to the hotel and from the hotel to the airport.
We were given exactly the room we wanted, on the first floor, overlooking the ocean. It was very clean and spacious with a large balcony and was very well equipped.
The rooftop pool made for a relaxing way to end an afternoon before getting ready for dinner.
The central location was great too, close to all the resort had to offer. The Rising Sun restaurant attached to the hotel, although a separate business, served delicious lunches and dinners but no breakfasts. However, the convenience store/internet cafe next door did serve breakfast or the means to do it ourselves in the room.
Back to Sarayi and I cannot praise the staff enough. Their friendly hospitality and helpful attitude was much appreciated and was not "over the top" or sycophantic.
Coming from UK and having family in Perth WA, it is unlikely we will return to this area but I would definitely choose Sarayi again and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose an ocean view room as long as you are able to use stairs. There is no elevator. The rooms her...
